@CD1: I’m not going to HR over this, but I’m allowed to be frustrated. I’m still going back today to continue to do good work. But if I “waited my turn” as a woman in this industry, I’d never get anywhere.

CD1 – it’s not the job of an ECD or CD to replace good creative with their own work to fuel their ego. A good manager would give feedback, direction and opportunity. If you’re in a position of power or privilege, keep that door open. Not hard.

Go to HR over this? Are you insane? Have some of us lost our minds!? Regardless of gender, the ECD calls the shots creatively especially when it comes to the voice of the agency to the outside world. When you're an ECD you can do the same. In the interim stop whining and wait your turn. This isn't socialism. You don't have the same voice as your boss.

@CD1 surely as someone who’s risen through the ranks to creative director, you understand the concept of bad optics. Like, and I’m just spitballing here, when a male cd takes down the work of female creatives to replace it with his own on international women’s day, for example.

Can you still tell HR maybe? We need to start voicing this. There is no other way or an easy way. We have to fight the fight and walk the walk. Talking the talk won't be enough. I know it's scary. I hope you find the courage. I'm sorry it's happening but you are NOT alone. Please know that.✊
