Will a white male be eliminated immediately?

That’s a shame. I hope they fall on their feet.

Hopefully no one falls on their head.

They weren't layed off. They have "transitioned out".

So sorry. Best of luck to them.

Wow. Maybe they should relocate out of NYC. They could keep people and lose the high rent.

Did they lose a piece of business?

How's Edelman NY? Getting hit up for Health which I've never done. It'll entail moving from advertising to PR/earned creative as they call it, and the Health category. Didn't sound like hard sell pharma, quite a bit of branded video content. I searched on FB, sounded mostly negative culturally (employee fired during Pride month, political, creatives better watch their backs, climate denier) with a few who love it. Figured I'll ask if anything's changed, if it's even worth ... considering.

I raised some issues in my team, and now all the male members are telling me “no need to interact with us”. And labeling me as assuming things and that they “never said” anything.
