Does anyone have book recommendations on gender bias/microagressions? For context: got into an argument with my dad bc he is moving and he said he doesn’t know about the mattress sizes “because that’s something a female who is into design and decoration would know” 🥴🤮 smh idk wtf a mattress has to do with design/decoration or women and this man needs education. thanks in advance
As a black person, you have to be the son of a Neurosurgeon to get promoted to leadership. CC Havas’ latest VP hire. The diversity efforts in this industry are a sham.
I have been invited to a company diversity program. After reviewing the materials, I believe this will be more divisive and unhelpful than it will be constructive. I would like to not attend. Has anyone been successful in having this type of conversation with their manager? And because it seems to matter these days, I’ll just throw out there that I am not a cis white man 😂
I usually join a meeting saying "hey guys".. I've always done this.. the other day someone in the call pointed out that not everyone in the meeting were male.. I was slightly taken aback .

If your law firm has no attorneys who are female or people of color, I’m not referring cases to your firm. It’s 2020, do better.

Diverse perspectives are how law firms succeed, I want to see more firms that understand that.

What are some ways in which you’ve specifically contributed to gender equality in the workplace?
When agencies post pics of their white staff, and boasts that they’re all about diversity, I call BS. A diverse house doesn’t mean the IT person or the receptionist- unless they’re also creatives!:)
Inclusiveness vs diversity: I think internally, inclusiveness is extremely important, and advantageous to a firm. Recruiting efforts however, should be race/creed/color/protected party agnostic.
I’m having a meeting today with a partner on ways to refresh D& I (Diversity and Inclusiveness) initiatives in the new office i just joined. Would appreciate ideas on some of the areas to talk about and events to host
Thoughts on ad agency diversity data, now that it’s being released? “Across the entire (Havas) organization in the U.S., 6.11% of employees are Black, 10.8% are Hispanic or Latino and 9.66% are Asian.”
So so cool to see Air Canada using a sari-clad, bindi-wearing lady in the safety video! Can’t think of many other countries where this would be possible, love this country and it’s diversity 😍🇨🇦
