How have your respective agencies, leaders, and teams responded to the influx of discrimination and hate against Asians, as well as the nuances & intersectionality of uplifting women, BLM, etc?

How did you feel about how they may or may not have acknowledged this, and if they did, are they putting/planning to put action behind their words?

R/GA has multiple emails sent from leadership in regards to the shooting against Asians in Atlanta. And I do appreciate it greatly.

But so far this hate crime hasn’t occurred in any of my coworker’s chitchat subjects yet. And most of my coworkers are white 🤷🏻‍♀️


I think it’s a mix. A lot has to change fast but I think having the forum and awareness is key to starting the change


The usual email from up top, and offer to match donations.

Need some advice. I am a simple person and have not thought much about some massive or strategic diversification of my net worth. I am 40 yrs old. Net worth of $2.2M. It is simply categorized in three buckets - $1M in 401K, $0.8M in bank and $0.3M in fully paid house. My house and 401K are appreciating at a good rate of 10-15%. Now after joining this app, I am seeing alternatives such as Roth IRA, Index Funds, Kids 529(?), annuity, tax saving strategies…there is so much. Where should I start?

Hey, I’ve been working at an agency for 10 months. Tbh the low entry level salary in marketing is getting to me. I live in a high cost of living city. I hate having to work from 9-6, sometimes skipping lunch(not paid for lunch hour), and working overtime for no over time pay. Is it worth sticking it out or switching fields? I didn’t have the best childhood and want to be self sustainable faster. I’m not a quitter but my mental health is not in a good place. Would like some advice. Thanks!

If anyone is looking for a last minute volunteer for panel and speakers for AAPI. Please DM me. I’ve been stuck in a Covid loop and forgot about this time of the year. Would love to be part of the events.

As an Asian American, have you experienced bias this year that you believe was related to coronavirus?

Whatttt'sssss good my dooooods

I've been seeing a lot of ADCOLOR posts on linkedin, and some of the people who are liking and reposting it are some of the same people who were blatantly racist and rude to me when I worked with them. I wish there was something I could say/do about it, but it's literally making my blood boil seeing them like posts about "uplifting" and "supporting" BIPOC, only because I know that once they get off their screens and they're the meanest people
