In addition to my experience it appears that I am a diversity hire 🤦🏽‍♀️. Any advice for navigating this? It's been at least 10 years since I've been dolo-solo. I don't even an Asian or Latin ally.

Did they tell you that you were a diversity hire? Regardless, kick ass and bring some PoC when you can.

It’s legal if they’re qualified and you aren’t choosing them simply on the basis of race. 😊

Are you from the area? Until you can bring more ppl in (and even after because you won’t be friends with everyone), it helps to do more outside of work where you know you’ll be around other Black people or non-Black PoC.

Yeah I've lived here for 10+ years that's why I find it so crazy there isn't more diversity. I definitely get my POC vibes outside of work. Considering you spend so much time at work it's nice to have allies.

Latinx - help! We used this term in our diversity spotlight discussing Hispanic Heritage Month. One individual said that in English a group of Latinos would just be Latins to be gender neutral. I understand the word is controversial but is “Latins” grammatically correct? I assume we should just say Latin Americans, but trying to understand if Latins is also accurate.

So when brands/agencies make an effort to cast for diversity in creative (race/gender/sexual preference), is it ever genuine? Like "here's how we can drive society forward" vs. pure profit: "here's how we can look good and move units" what have you seen?

I am frustrated as a Gay Woman who has given her all for 30+ years grinding to be the best. I have been in closet, out of closet, in-between and am tired of it. I want to be VALUED as a human being. I have gone from Rock Star to problem when people "found out". I have trained and promoted hundreds of people and been passed over for promotions because of not being a man. I have trained men with less experience, worse results only for them to move forward. If Diversity is important...prove it!
