That moment when you’re hearing a presentation on the theme of Cannes being about diversity & inclusion and you look around realizing the 4 presenters are all WHITE DUDES in their 40s. SMH.
Does anyone feel like their agency walks the walk in terms of committing to diversity and inclusion?
This is basically the answer to every “Wait, is it okay/wrong/legal that a lot of job postings now explicitly encourage BIPOC/female candidates vs. white males—isn’t that reverse discrimination??” post: https://www.instagram.com/tv/CMXv5KNAjHs/?igshid=hxrb8v6qdiwq
So I am seeing this guy, and whenever we go out for dinner we split the bill 50/50. Like he doesn't even offer to pay. But when we go out for drinks after dinner he pays. He's currently doing his MBA so loans and told me that money was always tight when he was a kid so I get it, but sometimes it's hard not to compare to my ex who used to pay for everything when we went out. But then again he had a range of other issues hence the ex... please offer some respectful thoughts to help me 😊
Why are town Hall meetings so impersonal? They are all about awards / the number of people hired. I know FCB health is large, but we never hear from people who aren’t Executives. Last town hall, when discussing inclusion efforts, there were no people of color represented and one of the 4 pillars of diversity was centered around our “reputation as an organization” (that really rubbed me the wrong way). At my last agency those conversations were always led by people of color from every level.
Recently had my opinion shut down because “as a white male, I was coming from a position of privilege and could not possibly understand”. Excuse me? My skin pigmentation has more bearing than any life experience, education and past hardships and condemns me to being inherently incapable of ever being able to grasp certain concepts?
LinkedIn: Does this conf agenda sound familiar? 9: Foil-wrapped breakfast tacos. 9-10: How I Made Everyone Forget I was a Woman and Found Success welcome speech. 10-11: Diversity… of Thought a manel
Private school worth it? I think of it as insurance. Less chance your kid is a screw up, sets the baseline of what school he/she gets into higher. makes sure they don’t get lost in the weeds with low student teacher ratio. Anyone else done extensive research or has practical life experiences with this?
JamesLyonSSwe Is on Tik tok: graduated from Stanford , got his first internship at the 10th grade, interned as NASA during high school, worked as a researcher at Stanford, yet completed over 400 leetcode questions. Current a Software engineer at Airbnb and HE’S STILL LABELED AS A DIVERSITY HIRE under the comment!!!! This is the problem!
If I am already well into the highest tax bracket and will be for the next ten+ years, and if I am inheriting a sizable IRA... do you suggest cashing out (with the tax hit) so I can grow it with diversity and flexibility or do I stretch and just take RMDs until I am required to empty it? I feel like I am getting biased advice from the institution.
Advice as I’m not sure whether it’s just “me”. A white male leader who’s always saying the “right things” about supporting female, diversity, being an ally, etc. I had many interactions with him, and his word of choice, statement irks me. For example: who’s your role model (a single person in the company), or put me more as second lieutenant role, made an assumption that I don’t have network, and always gave me the “rah rah” about my salary is good when I asked about comparison to my peers.
Anyone a black inclusion network lead for D&I?
Thanks for doing this Paul! I'm pretty interested in data on this. Do some states have teachers w/ more student loans than others? Is there a gender gap?
Between Nivea's "white is purity" ad and Pepsi's "Black soda matters" ad. We can all agree it's time to STOP asking...is diversity a issue within marketing?
Hi Fishsters, any info would be most appreciated. I’m a copy-based CD with years of international experience on major brands keen to move Southern CA for a bit more diversity. Working freelance now, but I’ve led departments up to 30, and am cool to be an ACD/writer on a team. Not really hung-up on titles. Any leads or recruiters to speak to?
I was asked by my director to join a diversity and inclusion leadership group today. Feels nice to be recognized as someone who could help lead an initiate, and I guess I qualify as diverse because I’m a woman and my technology practice is mostly male. But I feel I don’t represent enough voices that really need to be heard - I’m white, raised middle class. Wondering if I should accept and/or any thoughts anyone has. Especially from people who don’t identify as Caucasian.
Has the left completely devolved into identity politics at this point? Can’t read a single political article without race or gender being mentioned when talking about the candidates
How do yall feel when asked to take promotional pictures that are ment to show "diversity" at your firm?
Has anyone’s firm totally stiffed them on bonuses this year? I find it shocking in a year where everyone has busted their ass, there’s massive levels of associate attrition, and a focus on equity and inclusion, firms would be so short sighted. Let your voices be heard!

All this Black Friday nonsense. Then on Monday it'll be "Cyber Monday." Bottom line people are buying shit. What's your consultant wish list?

Sigh. Dude paces back in forth in SkyClub on his phone across the main room. Voice is loud enough allowing anyone to recite a summary back to him of the discussion that is taking place.
I realize this is extremely vague but what is an expected tax return for a first year analyst?
I cringe when I hear Partners and Staff refer to people with the incorrect skill set as “low quality people”. If you throw an SA onto a project in an area they aren’t familiar with, and they struggle, are the really a “low quality” person? I feel it’s more about fit and skill set (provided they aren’t lazy and negligent).
