Yeah. If you’re a POC, I find it’s the number one question that makes interviewers scramble to try and impress you with their answer. Definitely puts you in a position of power

If it’s important to you, then yes.

Yes. Even if you’re not BIPOC, it signals a lot of things you’d want to avoid. Like resistance to change, an impenetrable “culture”, and probably being a little out of touch with stuff

Totally. How they respond to that question can tell you a lot about the agency.

Yes. I did so recently, and it helped me realize that I was a long shot to get the gig, despite going far in the interview process, as I’m not exactly the diverse employee it sounded like they needed.

Sure why not?

like

Yes.

Everyone should ask this TBH.

Hi! First time working with a larger company - suggestions on handling pronouns at work? I’ve worked with smaller agencies where it was easier to bring up. Now I’m on a larger team, talking to/referencing people I’ve never met. I’m less concerned about my own pronouns and more concerned about how to make sure I’m using the correct pronouns for the people I work with. I’ve been structuring sentences to avoid gender specific pronouns but would love to hear suggestions. Thanks!
