Unprofessional post- I’m seeing my new coworkers in person for the first time this weekend because I was a remote hire. But I have gained so much weight since covid that I feel like people are going to be disappointed when they see me in person. Because my professional headshot is from 2 years ago and I don’t look like that anymore. What do I do? I really want to cancel.
Hi! I am planning on climbing, hiking, and wfh in Boulder, Co this summer. Anyone know of any temporary housing? Also open to meeting people, so dm me if you live there and want to hang out.
WFH - Are you getting more exercise or less? I know it’s hard with gyms being closed, but with YouTubeTV, running virtual workouts there are a lot of options.
The concept of PAR can be applied to racial equity and inclusion work as: Privilege Accountability Responsibility Privilege is reinforced over time - it does not happen suddenly!
At your firm, how would you say internal initiatives/ ENGs are split by gender? Flipping through some of ours, I’m seeing the majority are women. How can we get men more involved?
Of course Bezos tapped another cis-gender White male as his successor...why would we expect otherwise?
Seems that Fearless girl was made by unfair men. “It became the financial world’s most iconic symbol of gender equality and won 18 honors at the prestigious Cannes Lions, including four Grand Prix” http://www.adweek.com/agencies/financial-firm-behind-fearless-girl-will-pay-5-million-for-allegedly-underpaying-women-and-minorities/
So. Much. Diversity.
With all this extra, often unnecessary, communication while my company works remote, I’ve been having an awful time getting actual work done. So I’ve started to block off major chunks of my day every morning and put up an autorespond message saying I’m focusing on a deliverable, but will be available to respond at x time and if it’s an emergency to text. HOLY SHIT. What a game changer. I can actually get work done guilt free. I realize not everyone is able to do this, but if you can, do it.
What’s a better way to say, ‘you guys’?
M here. I’ve done a lot therapy and reflection and realized I grew up believing in traditional gender roles. Although I logically believe in equality, I find myself desiring a traditional “wife stays at home and tends to the house” life. I’m ashamed of it, especially since my SO is a strong, intelligent, highly independent woman who likes to work, and I wouldn’t want to change anything about her.
I wish glass door would tell you gender. Would love to see how much more men creatives still get paid more than women.
director of diversity, director of culture, what do they do in the agency? Seriously wondering
Just moved to bigger place and finally have place for an office (yay! was working on the couch for a year…horrible posture now…) Got an electric standing desk, a great office chair, and a nice desk light…any other recommendations for a comfy wfh set up?

Preferences: (1) Some place I don’t need winter clothes (2) Some place walkable / won’t need a car for the whole time. I’ll go with the most liked suggestion
Are others seeing nepotism in candidates during recruiting that is counteracting diversity and inclusion efforts? How are you keeping the motivation to continue fighting for equality? Feeling very discouraged right now.
How have y’all balanced boundaries with extended family during covid? With the holidays coming up, are you going to skip any gatherings? What if your boundaries are less stringent than your wife’s?
For those who are WFH: Does anyone else feel like they are working more than they usually do when in the office??
What’s expected raise percentage in promotion year? My firm said 8-12. Is that low, high or normal?
I feel like I’m drowning. This is my first year as a senior in a new industry and a new client, and I’ve literally never worked as much as I have now. This is the first busy season where I’ve worked every single day including the weekends, and I still feel like I’m behind. We issue next week, and I’m not sure how everything is going to get done. On top of that, I am not dealing with the loss of my little brother well. He was 23, and he died in September. I just want to cry about everything.
