I cannot even begin to imagine what that would be like. I would stay, only because you mentioned this is a new and higher position for you, but I would immediately be looking to either transfer out of new into somewhere else internally or begin looking outside of Fox. Sorry this happened to you :/.

How long have you been here?

If you are in a leadership position where you can make decisions that impact the organization, then stay and be the change and help in hiring more diversity and change the workplace including your tools. If you know you can't do this, honestly, start looking for another job, and in your interviews, be honest why you left in a span of 1/2/3 months.

I know all of the standard tips but if anyone has any advice for specifically this field or position, or any advice, I’d love to hear it!
