Alexa, look up the word “diversity”
How do I deal with the feeling of hating the overall human experience. I am a 23 year old male and have had an absolutely blessed life (gender for context not supporting evidence). But every day, I feel I am going through the motions and ‘numb’ in a sense. I also dread weekends as I use work as an escape, and there is nothing I can do to escape myself in weekends. I have struggled with depression since I hit puberty (~a decade of depression) and have wished for it to get better or to just end.
arrived last year in US. i haven't seen much diversity in desi populations here. dont see many ppl from north , north east , east and central india ..what is the reason ..thoughts?
Did anyone else lol at some of the suggestions in that “how to increase diversity in agencies” thread on the main bowl last week?
I found that a lot of white guys tend to think diversity is an over correction sometimes. Thoughts?
Diversity and inclusion. Can you please give me examples of when you feel you were “mistreated” or “excluded”
Hi! I posted this on the LGBT group. See pictures. Looking for some assistance as I explore my gender
Walking around my floor at the agency, looking at all the people, and honestly really proud of the diversity of faces, backgrounds, nationalities, and genders (to borrow an archetype) that I see.
Was up for a stretch role of a manager role as a senior analyst (almost cl9 promotion) but delivery lead says he doesn’t want to put me in the role as the client counterpart is male and I am female and he said due to the travel requirements it wouldn’t work…. Kinda mad if gender is the only thing holding me back from this role. Should I say something
Looking for an ACD Copy partner who’s ready to make the jump to CD. If you value diversity, enjoy mentoring, push for conceptual transformative work and like awards, let’s chat. 😊
A lot of convos on here lately about diversity and people talking about dealing with diversity in the workplace ‘passively’ or letting underrepresentation fix itself etc. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/bank-america-discriminated-blacks-pay-2-2-million-article-1.1465391
Bad news friends - I work at a top tech firm and just got word that executive comps are now tied to diversity metrics. Surprise surprise, Asians were grouped as a whole and not considered diversity.
Cue the crazies who hypocritically love to “support the troops.”
Real talk: I’m part of an affinity bar association and we have weekly happy hours. There’s a white dude (who is a partner at his firm) who always shows up. I guess he’s an “ally” but I feel like I can’t be candid about some things because he’s there. Also, at my firm we have a diversity retreat and recently this white associate complained she couldn’t participate. Thoughts?
Looking for the scoop on Deloitte. LGBTQ+ friendly? I know they got rid of employee resource groups/diversity forums, but is there at least somewhat of a queer community (particularly in DC)?
Today I went to work because I have shit to do and using my gender to take a day off hurts me the most as I'd have twice as much shit to do tomorrow.
Imagine creatives unionized. No more ridiculous hours without overtime, no more corporate abuse, more diversity and standards. Someone poke some holes in this pipe dream
Anyone move from a large east coast city to a smaller city in the south or midwest? Did you have trouble adjusting to the slower pace, fewer things to do, and/or maybe a lack of diversity?
The anticipation before the final deliverable. Let’s introduce everyone so we only have a couple of minutes for the big show and no questions. Oh - and ignore our lack of diversity for this meeting.
What should we expect for Chevron and Exxon earnings on Friday? They've already announced dividends are safe, Chevron announced cuts in cap ex.
Anyone have experience using a habit tracker app? Trying to replace, reduce, or remove habits and I’ve seen some apps that claim to help by offering encouragement and accountability. All comments welcome!
Should resumes be straight forward or are people trying to be more creative now? It's been a few years and I'm starting to feel the itch. Seems like the trend is changing with the new canva templates.
Can we please ban ad/PR puns using “contagious” in midst of a pandemic? “Love is contagious, too” is like the American Cancer Society doing a “Let’s also spread the joy” campaign.
Can someone provide consulting exits to FAANG Bizops/Strategy roles mapping? Based on what I’ve read.. 1. Analyst (~ 2-3 YoE) - L4 - TC - Upto $170k 2. Associate (post-mba) - L5 - TC - Upto $275k 3. EM - L5/6 - TC - $275k - $350k 4. AP/ Director - L6 - $400k - $600k Is this accurate?
Need some inspiration for a 30th birthday outfit. Probably going to bars or a club (thinking of rallying one last time to end my twenties the way I started them 😅). Need the find THE dress. 🔥🔥🔥 Any recs?
Omnicom peeps: Is Paige spying on us?
Someone help me cos there’s too much ignorama going on. How many people were indicted and/or jailed for the so called witch hunt???
I’ve been saving a lot of money since quarantine started (mostly involuntarily, there’s not much to spend on). I’ve got 6 car payments left on my 2019 VW (it’s a good car, I expect to keep it for another 3 years at least- only 6000 miles on the clock)
Should I go ahead and pay it off right away? The APR is 0%, so I’d not be saving anything in interest payments, but I’m not investing my recent savings in anything (I might need the money if I’m laid off). WWYD?
I've been in this business almost 20 years. I can count on one hand the number of colleagues fired or terminated the first 15 years. I have lost count the last 5 years. It takes an emotional toll
Has anyone ever done a flexible work arrangement that is less than 75%? If so what percentage and did it work out?
Does anyone know if Principal/Staff designer compensation is equal to or higher than lead/sr designers? Based in SF here. I’ve been seeing Sr designer ranges from $180-200k recently. Wondering if pivoting to Principal is smarter move purely from compensation standpoint.
As the bowl grows larger, I wanted to take a moment to talk through some ground rules that I'm using as I moderate, and get your input as well.
For me, this is a space where you're allowed to feel as much as you need to. Share your frustrations and experiences and triumphs, and share in the community that supports you through those.
