Yeah I noticed a few years ago the focuses of D&I shift over time; Ethnic diversity , sexual-orientation inclusiveness, and now a focus on white women and equal pay. All of these are needed but white 'women in leadership' is the current vision of success to agencies hoping for good PR.

This is spot on. The shift has been almost instantaneous... People like to shit on Cindy Gallop a lot but she's the only one I've noticed really flying the flag for ethnic minority leadership albeit a focus mostly on women but still....a focus nonetheless.

Funny how there's such a movement regarding white women and calling it diversity, but there has been an issue with hiring black people in advertising overall for over 50 years, including the roles they are in if ever hired. This was the entire purpose for 'diversity' to happen in advertising in the first place. Similar to Civil Rights movement, purpose was for black people to be treated the same and now everyone is claiming it... Smh

This is not to say white women aren't amazing at their job. Just diversity doesn't exist in advertising by these standards.

Post this in the predominantly feminist groups

I’m annoyed that a white woman was selected as the leader of the newly created Black Action Council. I have no doubt that her credentials qualify her, but in an age when firms are saying they can’t get their diversity numbers up, they feel a white woman is best suited to lead a Black Action Council?

Hi everyone! So I'm kinda questioning my gender views of myself and I need help and education on what I'm feeling.

Will add examples/reasoning why I'm questioning this below. In essence I can't tell if this is a personality trait or gender question
