I was just dinged for a complaint from a male colleague for “not being friendly.” I can’t help but feel but this has slightly gender biased tones do it. I don’t think the same person would make the same complaint about a male CD. Is this worth making a point over? If so how would I go about doing it?
Do men generally note how much of an impact gender bias can affect a woman’s career? Do you see it frequently? Do you see that we can work harder and more scrupulously than men and get passed over?
Imagine creatives unionized. No more ridiculous hours without overtime, no more corporate abuse, more diversity and standards. Someone poke some holes in this pipe dream
Kind of a quick rant. I did a quick search through some firms websites because I am thinking of switching jobs. It is definitely clear most firms still do not embrace diversity. I know diverse applicants must be just as qualified! So what is keeping attorneys of color out?? It’s so discouraging.
What do you do if you’re interviewing somewhere and everyone you meet is white? Multiple rounds. I don’t expect to be surrounded by diversity but... am I the token then?
Is anyone following this post about men not wanting to coach women because they’re afraid of false accusations? I’m very disheartened because I already face gender bias in a very competitive cont.

Diversity and inclusion. Can you please give me examples of when you feel you were “mistreated” or “excluded”
Got feedback that I use the word "guys" a lot when I talk. Is it that offensive? I always considered it to be gender neutral.
So happy to see that FCB resigned Nivea for their homophobic wimpery. Anyone else come up against similar clients that outright refuse simple inclusion in their ads?
EY’ers, do you get what D&I committee is doing at EY? A lot of buzz, but I am still not clear what do they actually do?
I know it stands for diversity and inclusiveness...
My view on scatterplot is: it hinders diversity of thought, and diversity in general. Asking "do you like this person" has no relevance to competency, work ethic, client contribution, etc... Thoughts?
Anyone ever feel they were the diversity hire or were promoted because of an inclusion quota/goal? I am really glad of the firm’s commitment to advancing and supporting women. I just can’t help but feel this sometimes and question my abilities and accomplishments... 😔
Cue the crazies who hypocritically love to “support the troops.”
Real talk: I’m part of an affinity bar association and we have weekly happy hours. There’s a white dude (who is a partner at his firm) who always shows up. I guess he’s an “ally” but I feel like I can’t be candid about some things because he’s there. Also, at my firm we have a diversity retreat and recently this white associate complained she couldn’t participate. Thoughts?
Bad news friends - I work at a top tech firm and just got word that executive comps are now tied to diversity metrics. Surprise surprise, Asians were grouped as a whole and not considered diversity.

I cannot stand when the men on my team start calling eachother "dude" and "bro". Am I crazy or are these slight microaggressions? It feels like a flaunt of masculinity and makes me uncomfortable as a female in the same conversation.

Joining a new firm that has different work phone options: bring your own device or phone stipend to purchase/maintain that plan monthly. Does anyone have any advice on what kind of phone to get? I don’t want to use my device (data breach waiting to happen) and I don’t necessarily think i’ll need an iphone.

I've been with ACN for almost 3 years in the TDP program and really want to exit into data analyst or business intelligence roles. My projects haven't given me any challenging work that builds out my SQL skills and it's hard getting project's using data visualization platforms like Tableau. I think due to this I've been rejected by many companies, so if I'm not getting the necessary work experience, would certs in these tools help me or I'm better off doing side projects on Tableau/using SQL?
