BYU Advertising School is where many agencies get their juniors. The pipeline is real. On their website cover page is a picture of a class of eight advertising students. All of them white. They actually highlight lack of cultural and ethnic diversity on their main homepage. If we want agencies to be diverse, we need to work with programs that have diverse students. We can make the change by telling BYU to attract and offer a diverse student body￼. Pathetic.
Female fish- gender pay inequality? Thoughts?
Not trolling; legit ask
Just received a (internal) resume that states “fully vaccinated.” Is this the norm? Should I be updating mine to reflect?
Help! I'm a Sped teacher (ELA inclusion) that comes home to a High Functioning Autistic 9 yr old with ADHD and a slew of sensory issues that has sworn off soap 🤢. I've made visual check list for bathroom processes, bought timers, tried different bars and body washeds with net sponges, towels and even invested in a pricey showerhead with multiple settings. His set of needs are out of my wheel house. I need suggestions before I just pack up and move out *sarcasm but at the end of my rope*.
*Sensitive topic* Stimulants and “sexual release/masturbation”! Those using stimulants, what has your experience of “release” been on *work performance*. Are you able to focus more? Or less because it takes from your energy? Serious answers only please. If you’re comfortable sharing gender please do in case there may differences in experiences.
Have efforts to increase diversity in real estate careers been successful, or do you think there is still a long way to go?
Hello! Does anyone know of any openings for diversity and inclusion drivers/promoters in India? I joined as an HR analyst at Accenture as a fresh graduate 3 months ago but this is not really the role I was looking for. I have quite a lot of experience in diversity and inclusion related themes. Any leads/suggestions/advice would be appreciated!
Equal Weight SPY, QQQ alternatives
Thoughts on ETFs that are equal weight maps to the S&P and the Nasdaq? Looking to slowly reduce my exposure to the market cap heavy constituents (AAPL, TSLA, etc) and increase diversity to the smaller constituents. Independence prevents me from BlackRock and Fidelity funds, so curious as to what other PwC folks are doing.
Given the constraint, would you rather shower before sex or after? Encourage you to include rationale and gender if comfortable
Edit - To be clear, the constraint is that you are allowed to shower only once. And, shower sex is off the table.
I have taught Pk-2 (full time aides) & SpEd inclusion K-8 with parapros. This will be my first time alone in a classroom of 27 3rd graders. What is your favorite project to do in 3rd??

Hey Gente, Im applying for jobs and I wanted to get others opinion on the race part of the application process. As an indigenous LatinX I worry that if I put indigenous it won’t tick the “diversity” box for the algorithm or recruiters. I work with (not in) the I&D dept at my company and our target recruiting groups don’t include or mention indigenous. Any recruiters here that have insight?
After 3 years, my partners and I are sunsetting our side project. It started with a brief we got at work. But we wanted to do more. So we made Secret Code to help eliminate the gender gap in tech.
I love this (queer-positive comic creators really bring so much joy to the world) ☺️ The same goes for gender!
Was at an event recently. Seems like advertising really only cares about diversity as it applies to white women. I think this industry wants to stay white.

Any WIT in Boston? I'm interviewing for a really exciting opportunity in downtown and would be relocating there after it's safe. Would love to hear about any groups or resources!
Bonus points for intersectionality and welcoming of LGBT individuals (I'm a gender non-conforming butch lesbian). Bonus bonus points for a group that isn't all white.
Also where should I be looking to live? I heard Boston has a lot of racism issues and is very segregated...
Anyone have their CFE? Just wondering what you have done or plan to do with it and what the test was like.
I am an Admin Assistant. I do admin, project coordination and lead a few projects. I am often in meetings with a lot of execs & from my experience (even in my team), I find that people seem to think lowly or are dismissive of admins work. I am currently looking at entry roles in consulting but am worried hirers will see my title & dismiss my application too. My friend suggested changing my title to Project Assistant or Coordinator on my resume to reflect what I do now but this feels like lying?
Is any start up company looking for a remote accounting and/or finance team? Looking to help some companies who are in the processing of expanding/looking to expand.

Quick vent: fiancé and I were going to put an offer in on an apartment we loved before all of this Covid stuff happened but changed that plan to rent to buy starting Aug to be safer. The sellers just told us they accepted someone else’s offer to buy. We, especially me, were in love with the apartment but we were too risk adverse to buy now bc if Covid and fiancé working at a startup that had layoffs in the beginning. Just sad bc we’ve been looking for two years and this was the perfect place.
Hello fishies! Anyone looking for freelance strategy support?

Hi all - I have a BYO alcohol venue and trying to figure out how much alcohol would cost for 200 guests. My wedding planner said it would be aroun $3600 (just for alc) but that felt high to me? Any thoughts?
I'm getting promoted and will have (an) employee/s. I have never been a manager before except discreet projects. Can anyone recommend an online, book, etc to teach me how to be a good boss? Panicking!
Hi Fishes, how much does the post-graduation college matter while applying for Bain & Co.? when one has the relevant experience, skills, and certifications mentioned in JD. Also, any leads on referrals would help.
My friend has following offers from three companies after MBA (two offcampus and one from campus)
1. Finance Effectiveness/ EPM role at one of the Big 4
2. Deal Advisory role at one of the Big 4
3. Organization strategy role from one of the top consulting companies (not Big 4)
Which role offers the best exit options? All the offers from US support teams of the companies.
OS role offers better than the other two (only slightly), but I am interested in a good profile
In TCS portal BGC was showing as Scheduled.
How long it will take to complete the bgc ???
What would you choose between P&G, pwC and a small consulting firm for a data science internship. The three positions are based in Paris and in data science, I have to take a decision this week and I'm completely lost :/
I don't have any clear idea about what I would like to do after (sometimes I think about a phd but others I prefer consulting...)
Thank you so much for your help
If you make it a year in biglaw and get laid off as a junior, what are the chances of not being able to find any legal job afterward?

Do you ever make reference to you being LGBT+ in your professional life? Portfolio or LinkedIn, etc? If you do what had the reaction been (if any)?

Hmm... our clients just paused ads on Teen Vogue due to homophobic tweets by the outlet's new editor-in-chief, Alexi McCammond.
So which one of y’all went to Puerto Vallarta 👀
I'm already planning my pride outfit to get me through the rest of this winter (and I do not know how I would handle knowing it was cancelled again!! 😭)
What do you fishies think about collectively creating a brief guide to brands doing pride? What to do/not do; i.e. enlist advocates, contribute in a meaningful way, continue your efforts beyond one month, a mere rainbow on your product is shallow, etc..
We could make up a google doc for everyone’s submissions, organize it, and a designer or AD here can make a cute little PDF booklet?

Is anyone else watching the Bachelor and is rooting for Anna solely on the fact that she works in Advertising or is it just me?! https://www.adweek.com/agencyspy/whos-the-copywriter-on-the-bachelor/170135/
Looking for a senior creative team for a couple of insanely fun brands… One in entertainment, the other in social media. Both AOR, so the world is your oyster.
Hii - been trying to network and create an LGBTQIA alliance within the ad industry. If anyone might be able to point me in the direction of alliances or movements of that sort comment plz :)
I was just thinking about the "most successful women in advertising" lists and all the ilk of other minority issues. I don't intend this to come across as self-serving, but is there anything like that for LGBTQ? I can't think of one I've seen, and I would LOVE to see that. Thinking back to when I was a Jr AD, I feel like that would have had an immense impact on me.
What if we organized a virtual pride benefiting the LGBTQIA institutions that are struggling as a result of the pandemic?
I’m thinking of Stonewall.
LGBTQ fish. Thoughts on Richmond? There are some great agencies there and money goes a long way. But should I be afraid of moving there while single?
Anybody know of great head hunters for Art Directors who are looking to branch out from Pharma Advertising??
I see recruiters encouraging Women, POC, and LGBTQIA to apply. How does one show they identify as the third?
Young POC + LGBT Strategists, this one's for you:
Heidi Hackemer at ZWolf Strategy has made a 6-week course on how to start your strategy career. Which is amazing in itself, considering what she's done for both my career and others'.
But it gets better: If you're selected, you get paid. No more thinking about how to make ends meet in order to get your foot in the door.
Applications close in 3️⃣ days. Good luck!
What do your agencies or clients have planned for Pride? We are working on some fun community activities, educational sessions, and a social campaign. Pride is NOT cancelled!!!
Anyone else bothered by the one size fits all bashing of straight white males? I have some really great allies in that camp, while many gay men I’ve worked with have been absolute monsters.

Your lived experience is important. Period.
What kinds of input do they see as “too subjective?”
Is this something they’re singling you out for, or are others subjected to this level of critique on their perspectives?
Can they make a concrete list of guardrails for you? (Not that you need to follow it but more just to have a record for HR of the ways in which you in particular are being asked to be quiet)
Sounds like your boss’s suggestion is subjective. I think there’s always a time and a place to bring yourself into the work. It always depends the audience and the context so it’s hard to judge in a broad sense.
Maybe it’s the delivery? Is the suggestion given in a constructive way for example.
sounds like he understands diversity but doesn’t understand inclusion or equity.
Option a) tell him “hey when you said this it made me feel unwelcome.” And send him the definitions “Diversity refers to the traits and characteristics that make people unique while inclusion refers to the behaviors and social norms that ensure people feel welcome.”
The next time your boss asks you how your weekend was, say “it was great. I watched Disclosure and it was so refreshing to see a representative film that *finally* educates people about the transphobic, white supremacist, patriarchal society we live in. And how it reminded you why you’re so glad to work in advertising so you can help others feel comfortable being their full and best selves—even at work!” Then be like “it’s on Netflix btw *sends link* 🙃
