I’ve worked at FCB NY before. Seems to be a pattern with never seeing a black person involved in creative concepts and ideation. Basically creative decision making always stays in the hands of white people, mostly ad bros.

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

A few male non-POC that I work with have mentioned that diversity programs make them feel left out of opportunities. Anyone else experience that, how do you respond (if at all)? I refuse to engage.

Has anyone ever worked in a place where you are being discriminated for your national origin, race and gender? For example, your partner makes racial jokes based on your national origin to your face in the workplace; or when you ask your supervisor if you can work from home cuz you are not feeling well, he asks you if you are really sick or if you are faking it. In the meantime he approves another white person whose level is lower than yours to work from home for 4 days in a row; or your partner

Hello! Does anyone have any feedback they’d like to share on BIP (Business Integration Partners) specifically the Milan/Rome offices? I really like the way the firm presents itself online, though the lack of diversity in their leadership is astonishing… Thank you!

Any other BW out there working in investment banking / PE roles? I’m going to sound naive but I didn’t think the lack of diversity would be THIS bad. It’s hard for me to visualize myself succeeding in this field when I see no one who looks like me in a VP or higher role. It’s so discouraging and at times I ask myself if it’s worth it to stick it out here.

Some companies are not taking diversity beyond cosmetics and do not seem to be committed to equity and inclusion. Exhibit A: The credentials of some of the recently hired DEI “executives”. Exhibit B: Average tenure of said executives tend to be about 12 months. And parting tends not to be amicable.

Okay for the last time - the fact that Cities tend to have higher crime (which has been declining over the years ) is a function of what cities are and what they attract - big populations (people moving here for opportunities), social/economic variations resulting in higher possibilities of crime. Cities also tend to have a more diverse demographic than smaller towns, suburbs which tend to have less economic and social diversity. If you have to use crime as a metric for comparison....(contd.)

Does anybody else ever feel like they don't personally feel impacted by the gender gap or feel any inequalities to them (again personally) as a female leader? We have discussions to ensure we are treated fairly but I feel respected by my team, colleagues and leads for my work and have never felt that I was treated differently to my peers based on my gender. As far as I know, my pay is comparable too. I can't be the only one?

As far as preferred gender pronouns go, I’m all about choosing he, she, xe, ze, whatever you want to describe yourself as - but can we please rethink using “they” and “their” to describe a single person? It gets confusing ya’ll. There’s zero judgement here, just grammatically speaking it introduces so much ambiguity and misunderstanding into the English language. That is all. Feel free to clap back if you think I’m out of line or misunderstanding something - always here to learn
