I'm trying to get my male director to see the importance of diversity on a team, however I'm flopping. And now I hear that 2 out of 4 of us women on my team are thinking of leaving mostly because of his ignorant attitude towards diversity and inclusion efforts (more notably, though, sexist prejudice). Is this something you can teach someone, or will I just continue to see the team bring on more and more white male colleagues until I'm snuffed out myself?
How do you suggest creative agencies address "forced diversity" requests (demands) from clients or internal management when casting talent?

Is anyone wondering what life will really be like for all the new Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion executives that many companies are hiring and bragging about now? I wonder how much power they will actually have to effect change. I wonder how long the trend will last.
Does BCW not allow conservatives to be employed at this company? I’m sitting through another meeting where we are highlighting amazing women and it is so politicized I am completely offended. AOC, Biden, Ilhan, Hilary... I mean at try to be inclusive when speaking of diversity. You can’t name a single female in the Conservative party throughout history?
So I'm a single dad, which I feel can be tough sometimes - doesn't fit with gender norms. It's the professional equivalent of not having baby changing stations in the mens room.
What's more of an issue in Silicon Valley - Gender Discrimination or Age Discrimination?
I have been experiencing a lot of subtle bullying and gaslighting from my company. Its the oddest thing because I know its gaslighting but I almost try to explain it away in a sense like maybe thats not it and etc. My company lacks diversity so I ma not sure if that’s why but its been odd and getting worst every day. I have started looking for other positions that are remote but haven’t found anything that is the right fit. Any advice would be great. I am the only BW on my team out of almost 40

I’m an introvert in consulting. I get along well with my teams but have found that when projects get busy my social battery plummets and I have zero motivation to network and meet new people. I’ve received feedback that Im doing great work I just need to ‘talk myself up more’ and promote myself. I love the diversity of consulting but I know you can only go so far before your role basically just turns into sales.
Are there any introverts that have gone the distance in consulting? Any advice?
Have competing offers from EY and KPMG UK Economic advisory teams( Manager/Snr Exec level). KPMG's UK technical rep and comp offer is better, but the hours appear longer. EY UK Director has had several calls selling culture (diversity and work life balance). Is there actually a substantive emphasis on this by EY? Or are 50+ hour weeks quite common?
I suspect it's going to be quite team dependent/ project dependent, and therefore a gamble in any case.
Thanks for any perspectives.
The ad industry is legendarily homogenous. Won’t unionizing simply close ranks & protect existing white professionals, who then protect other professionals just like them, resulting in LESS diversity?
