I'm finally understanding what it really means to be a person of color in the advertising world.

I don't know how y'all have done it for so long. I'd quit today if I didn't need the health insurance.

Shared feelings. It’s very difficult and makes me want to quit this industry altogether because hiring, and retaining, diverse talent seems to be all talk. Here if you want to talk ✋🏽

CD1, What's public? I'm sorry if I don't understand.

EP1, oh yes. I see how that could be terribly misread now. My intentions were to say I've seen what it's like to be around a workforce that favors more POC and what it would feel like working around more POC (like myself). Absolutely nothing directed at JM hah.

There’s no reason you have to put up with a job you hate. I spent many years working in a toxic environment with a boss who gossiped and lead through fear. He wasn’t really much of a leader but basically a foreman. And he could make my existence miserable. I admit that it wasn’t easy to find another job but the bottom line is: trust your guts. If you feel something is wrong it’s because it probably is. Don’t second guess yourself. Look for options and and fight for your mental health.
