I’m a big fan of the MAIP program but I’m just trying to understand why it doesn’t allow non-US citizens to apply?

Afterall, the program is based on promoting diversity and inclusion..

i agree. lots of talented creatives in my class left by the wayside because of that requirement

I think it’s because a lot of agencies don’t offer employment visas for entry level talent (since they can’t make the claim to the gov in the immig paperwork that there’s a lack of entry level talent locally), and MAIP metrics are based on getting people placed at agencies for the internship and beyond....

Hi there!! MAIPer here. As far as I know, it’s just because of the visa situation. Also the last stage of the selection process involves the MAIP finalist getting selected by an agency, therefore my guess is there might be some worry around the finalist not getting picked if a visa process is involved. Aka if the recruiter has 4 art directors to choose from and 1 requires a visa, that may influence their decision. They’re pretty focused on making sure finalists get internships. Happy to chat more if you’re interested!

It's a lot harder to get agencies to hire them. one thought.

Do you mean DACA-type recipients residing in the US are unable to apply? Or overseas-based, temporary visitors and exchange students are unable to apply?

International students temporarily here in the United States looking for a job, and minorities living here and having grown up here already understanding the culture so that we can adequately reach diverse consumers, are two massively different things though.

I’ve worked with or met hundreds of overseas hires on visas through the years, and there is no shortage of those. Whereas I think there are maybe five Black female ECDs in the entire industry.

If agencies hire creatives who are non-US citizens all the time, they don’t really need the extra boost that MAIP provides.

Is anyone else over agencies using the term 'Diversity' for white women and non Black people overall. As Black people we are still given excuses by whites and other races of why we are not promoted.

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?

I’m a SPED Resource/Inclusion Teacher which I really love. I really like working with the Gen Ed teachers maybe because my background is Gen Ed.

What happened to SPED working with Gen Ed? Maybe I’m old school, but this seems so wrong to me. Thoughts?

Been for a company for over 2years. The executive team is very much a boy's club. There are a few women in management roles but zero ethnicity diversity there. I raised my concern to HR in feb. And they are just now deciding to do something about it. They want me (white female) to put together a diversity committee. Any suggestions on how to go about it? How to attract volunteers to the committee? I want to make sure I get the right people involved in this, to push for changes.

I have a controversial observation: Facebook seems to be using recruitment process managers to get diversity hires.
