GDC is buttoned up, filled with tough older partners and some young impressive partners. Collegial but not all too friendly. I worked there 2 years and can’t complain about the quality of work. Incredible deals and high profile cases to get your hands on.

Do NOT claim you are "colorblind" in the workplace. 1. DE&I knowledge is now a core leadership competency. Colorblind claims will earn you the reputation of being DEI-ignorant at best & racist at worst. 2. Colorblindness within the context of workplace diversity is an obvious lie. You do NOT want to be painted as an intellectually dishonest leader. 3. Colorblind claims signal that you lack the leadership skills & vocabulary to have key conversations. Ask questions here, in this safe space.
