How can I increase the diversity of candidates, particularly for leadership-level roles? I have seen the 3% conference and posted positions with them, are there other helpful resources?

Work with HR to get a more candidates that are diverse in race, gender, ethnicity, etc. instead of the usual white male... there are many qualified candidates out there whose resumes don’t get past screening because their names don’t sound white. Do not accept the excuse of, “ there aren’t enough qualified candidates who are also diverse” ... that is NOT TRUE... and make sure you are not hiring a token candidate... once hired, give this person the opportunities they deserve, support them, be their advocate.

Suggestion, use your company’s Twitter/Instagram: ‘XYZ wants to level the field, looking for people of color to apply/send in your books. Reply with your URL/Role/City/full time or freelance.’ Then you have a list of people/books to check out. Boom.

Consider diverse candidates for roles that wouldn't ordinarily be staffed with diverse leaders. Ignore a candidate s LinkedIn until looking at their portfolio. Letting their work speak for them before their profile picture helps. And I hear the gradientgroup.com is supposed to be good for posting for diverse leaders.

Start with the sources. Too many people are focusing on choosing diverse talent from what’s already coming in, but the truth is what we even view as “talented” and “right fit” is broken. I think the fact that most agencies recruit only from hot ad schools or hot shops already puts the most diverse talent at a disadvantage. I say hot shops too, because they often only look at talent that made its way to renowned creative schools which are incredibly expensive and a massive barrier.

Are you hiring??

Yes! https://www.newengen.com/career/client-partner-creative-director-new-york?gh_jid=4743649002

I recently got married and started talking to my sister in law more often. She addresses me as “Bro” EVERY SINGLE TIME. She knows I identify as female. I absolutely hate because it’s a sign of deeply ingrained patriarchy and I also find it disrespectful. I never address anyone as bro, dude, man etc because I honestly find it very disrespectful. I would rather be addressed by my name. How can I handle this situation? We are still forming a reltnship & don’t want to hurt that process. I’m Indian.

Thinking about buying a home in the next couple of years either around the Chicago area or suburbs with access to the city. What’s the best neighborhood for a number of factors such as- diversity, safetiness, property value, school rankings, overall funness? I’m a South Asian man married to a White woman, so the location diversity does matter to me when raising kids. Thank you for all your help!

I have two young children and we like to vacation 1-2x a year (no more than a few days away each time). Am I crazy that this is pretty limited time off? 8 of the normal holidays off during the year (working the week between Christmas and NYE). Thoughts?
