I want white people to have to volunteer for the benefit of Black people on that day. Black people should get the day off. This is not a day for everybody.

I propose that everyone should have to be in the office… but white folks have to sit in training courses all day while the black folks have a all day “happy hour” festivities 🤪

Our place has gone above and beyond any expectation, not just with Juneteenth, but with all the racial and ethnic discourse that’s been happening. Thursday we had 2 presentations/discussions about the history of Juneteenth and the importance of understanding how we can learn from that history and apply it in today’s professional environment.

I have a job, and I’m grateful that I do! But it makes me extremely unhappy. I’m talked down to constantly, our client treats us like we’re dumb and they have no trust for the creative team, and I’m constantly anxious. How do I find a new gig during these (forgive me for saying this) unprecedented times? Or what do I do/say if I want to switch accounts within my agency? I need some advice from other women who’ve been through this and succeeded at finding something that makes them happier.
