Black consultants (primarily in the US but question is open!) - what’s your honest perception of OW from an I&D / diversity point of view?
What do you think: Teachers should/should not discuss their opinions and ideas around sexuality, gender, and religion with students.
Diversity Pattern I keep noticing: pitch decks/campaigns. Half of the photos are of white people.. and the other half are black. No indian, hispanic, muslim & asian representation. It feels incredibly unbalanced. 🧐
Alright so fine there were not many diversity initiatives in the past and not a huge push to create more diversity in organizations. But now is the time you can change that. Moving forward you can put these these initiatives in place.
We always talk about diversity as being important, which it is, but if you don’t have diversity of thought what’s the point. We’re selling products to the masses not our very small advertising bubble.
Does anyone know their agency's diversity numbers? Percentage POC, Black, Latinx, Asian, 2+ races, etc. If so how do you think it stacks up to other agencies?

Hi all, I’m one of the two BIPOC at an ad agency and I’m one of the first WOC ever hired at the agency. We’ve recently started to have diversity and inclusion trainings, and some of those trainings have been emotionally draining for me. Wondering if somebody has ever been in a similar situation and how you’ve mentally prepared for it?
I know I want a job change but not sure to what. I actually enjoy strategy and consulting and want to make good money. I can learn and get interested in just about anything and I like diversity in my work. That’s all I’ve got so far. What else do you all consider in a job move?

How is the diversity in leadership, employees, etc… at the other consulting firms? I am at Deloitte (USDC) in FL and it’s primarily Indians.
I recently got married and started talking to my sister in law more often. She addresses me as “Bro” EVERY SINGLE TIME. She knows I identify as female. I absolutely hate because it’s a sign of deeply ingrained patriarchy and I also find it disrespectful. I never address anyone as bro, dude, man etc because I honestly find it very disrespectful. I would rather be addressed by my name. How can I handle this situation? We are still forming a reltnship & don’t want to hurt that process. I’m Indian.

A CRO offerred me an internal consulting/biz dev role. They offered 145k TC (20% bump) and slightly better benefits. They also offered accelerated path (6mo to 1yr) to MC. While promotion to MC at my current company is at least 1 year away. The job is interesting to me and fits my careery goal. But my big concern is that I've only been with my current company for a year (this is my first job, post PhD). Would this affect my resume in the future in terms of being viewed as "job hopping"?

Pregnant and in first trim with severe nausea. Was put on a team that is super understaffed and have hard deadlines like every week as the client is going through diff transactions.
