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.

General question: Is there any room in corporate America for real, actionable DE&I discussions and initiatives? I've observed so many corporate versions become an advertising strategy (SM posts, diversity reports) without doing the actual work (increasing representation in senior leadership, salary analyses, having an effective reporting system for bias). Is this just how it is?

Is there a corporate way to bring up to senior leaders that an IC is causing issues across multiple teams because they are demanding and also doesn’t collaborate well? The IC gives vague “direction” then says they are too busy to clarify. They also refuse to use our project management/ collaboration tools.

What do you wish design students would learn in school to ease the transition into needs of business? I have seen an increasing need for more education/inclusion/overlap into other areas of business that depend on design teams so they understand what goes into the process. As well as design teams into the other business teams. This would alleviate tensions and improve quality product delivery due to the major miscommunications that occur so frequently.

I was the only female working in an office full of male analysts. My CEO didn't realize I was there, and went on and on about the last (and only other) female to leave the company, and asked if anyone knew if she ever in her life had a boyfriend because she seemed like such a b*+ch.... She didnt talk much, but I related due to the blatant uncomfortable sexism around the office. I recently left for other similar and worse remarks. They denied giving me my bonus (2 weeks away). Worth a fight? $33k

I acted (regrettably) foolishly when I was new to advertising at 24, I got drunk at an office party and apparently acted like a clown (I had a drinking problem and have since worked on it) now & 15 years later, people still bring my antics up - I feel using it to tarnish my reputation even though I l’ve bettered myself. I wonder if because I’m a WOC I’m more targeted but you never know. Hard to hear people still gossip & make fun of me about it. Don’t feel it’s helped my reputation...

Here's a question, I see that you can apply to jobs with just your resume, and there isn't an opportunity to include a cover letter. This astounds me because that's really where a business can learn your values and what you can offer them. Does anyone recommend a way around this? I thought about uploading a two page resume with the cover letter included. It seems a loss not to include that edge.
