My portfolio school is working on scholarships for Black creatives as they recognize the blatant gatekeeping going on at the door of portfolio programs. I’m still relatively new to advertising so a bit out the loop of Black ad groups/clubs, Black creative groups/clubs, etc. Can y’all share groups relevant to this cause?

So I've had a huge crush on one of my close friends from college for awhile now... To the point where it's unrequited love. We used to text and facetime every day but that stopped a few months ago. We'll still chat a few times a week, but definitely not as close. She's straight so I haven't told her about my feelings for her because I think keeping the friendships more important. The one sided love has been extremely painful to the point where I'm grateful we're not talking every day so... Contd

Anyone else HATE the word “full stack developer” in a lot of tech/LinkedI blog posts? the ONLy time I personally feel it is applicable is when it is being used to describe a developer in a specified domain— or more appropriately— for a specific company.

Ie: Amazon is ran by Java, SQL, and AWS for the most part right? so a full stack developer at Amazon would be competent in those “tech stacks”. However— when I see the word “full stack developer” used as a job title to describe broad categories

Hi Fishes,

Need your help.

I am from a service based company with no RSU policy.
When telling a Product based company on my expectations while Interviewing, what should I tell, only about how much hike I need over my CTC or should I tell how much RSUs I need too?

If yes on the RSU part, how to come to a conclusion on what amount of RSUs to ask for(considering most Product based companies have a 3/4 year vesting policy)?

TIA !!

Hi Everyone, need some advice. The only reason why I took my current role is because my direct supervisor would be a black woman VP- I was obviously excited because I've never worked with another black woman before. She's been out on maternity leave since September and I've had to cover her role and do my job, which is two levels above mine and supervising someone above my level. Yesterday the SVP tells me they found a new VP (ww) who would be my new boss.

If there is any talented jr. copy I’m looking for someone to join me at a great agency in Amsterdam, Netherlands. DM me for more info :)

Hi - first, white woman here. Please let me know if I am intruding! That said, a friend of mine is looking for CD CWs and she was really hoping to bring a woman of color into the role. It sounds like there aren’t even applicants. I racked my brain and while I know many who are in the art side, I don’t know a single writer. If you are interested, DM me your book! It’s a fantastic job. Also, I was wondering if there is a reason there seem to be less CD writer females of color vs art?
