So I’m seeing a lot of companies doing posts featuring their women. Which is great. But they are are white, cute and skinny. Which is not so great.

I didn’t say take down on anyone. If that was the take away you got, I’m sorry for not being clear. And you are right. I’m not fixing anything. I’m just saying excluding asian, black and trans women from the picture is not celebrating women, is celebrating some women.

Why

like

Maybe 🤔

Because people only care about objectively 'attractive' women. That trumps all other qualities and we all see it but never speak up against it.

Maybe I wasn’t clear enough in my post. Every women inclusion is a win on this industry. A few years back it was really hard to find a woman in a Leadership position. My frustration is because I’ve seen a lot of agencies and tech companies showing their women staff. And man, I’ve seen a lot of white woman. And when companies excludes asians, black, brown and trans women from the picture they are not celebrating women, they are celebrating some women.

I’m not in any way putting down the women portrayed by the companies. You deserve the spotlight and much more.

But from my experience, 15 yrs on this industry I only worked with one black woman. This number need to improve.

Zing!

Um, no.

Sounds like the algorithm assumes you only want to look at “white, cute and skinny” women because I have seen a lot more BIPOC women this year than ever.

I’m talking about ad agencies showing their staff. Not spots. So agencies I follow. I should have written the post differently. Sorry about that.

This is a great way to find out which agencies don't pay or promote women.

Precisely

In that I'll seek out agencies that offer more than empty congratulations and platitudes for those that actually do something: pay equity, leadership opportunities, a culture of support and a history of women in powerful positions.

Hi Fishes
I have a offer with a firm consulting firm, looks like it has a very poor wlb and I have only 12 days left in notice period I was waiting on Infosys but somehow got rejected in that, I'm looking for jobs in MNC and that would have 5 days working,and 2 day weekends mandatory off. I have worked more than 15+ hour everyday in current job no weekends which makes me think another 15+ hours everyday with lot of travel might affect me and relations with many close ones.
Advise me please.

Struggling to move up from Sr AD to ACD. I want to leave my current agency but don't want to do a lateral move, but all ACD positions posted say you have to have prior management. How do I get the experience to get the job if I can't get the job? I have 12 years as an AD, I've done lots of mentoring, I'm ready for the next step. Feeling very stuck.
