I would instantly understand that I was hired to give the physical appearance of diversity during pitches and presentations to clients and get the hell out of there ASAP.

I always assume the best from people. I’ve lived in 3 continents and see repeated patterns in all places from the equator up: Most of society’s problems stem from ignorance. I think they’re thinking “oh great this is relevant to this person they’ll love it” without knowing that this is absolutely not ok to make assumptions. A simple conversation needs to be had to clear the air and set boundaries. They will appreciate the transparency. And if not, like President said about, get the hell out asap.
