Dear FCB CHICAGO, you tout diversity but you let go of one of the only two black creative directors in your building today. This CD was good with the client, work and team. (Cont’d)
I feel like there’s a lack of inclusion in my office. We are finally diverse; but it feels like we’re hired, but not included. Specifically, lunch invites, client work and OOO events. Advice?
Does anyone talk about economic diversity? You know middle class and economically challenged people who cannot afford art schools and expensive private colleges?
If you had to choose between Bain and McKinsey offers, at the consultant level, what would you choose?
Book Recommendation: 10 Questions Every Teen Should Ask (and Answer) about Christianity This text deals with questions regarding cultural issues of our day such as race, gender, mental/physical health, relativism, origins of science, etc. in a clear and coherent manner from a Biblical worldview. Highly recommended.
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 a male supervisor, should I refer to my two female paralegals as “hey guys” or “hey ladies”? English is not my first language and woke is really making it difficult for me.
You want to talk about diversity and inclusion, Tim? Can we please have tampons and pads available in the ladies room?
Ally here. I hope this doesn’t get taken the wrong way but I’m looking for some help in understanding the transgender world. What’s the difference between not following stereotypical gender norms (eg. girls wanting to have short hair and play sports or boys wanting to take dance classes and wear make up) and not feeling like you fit with others of your gender vs truly feeling you should be living as another gender (to the point you want to take hormone supplements and fully transition).
#Genders Women, do you find it difficult to work with men? Men, do you find it difficult to work with women? If there is something you absolutely hate and would like to change when working with the other gender, what would it be? PS: I'm sorry for focusing on male/female genders in the question, but it's valid for anyone having different experience working with other genders than theirs.
Is it just me or has anyone else encountered gender discrimination from Female Managers?
I was introduced at my former agency as the "female" creative director, and everyone who worked for me thought I was a diversity hire. On top of that, I was told in multiple meetings that the only reason I was invited was because I was "young", which did I mention I'm not. Is any of this type of treatment politically correct?
Is HR ever on our side? What's been your experience when raising a gender/female issue with HR? Positive? Negative?

Should diversity really out-weight experience and education in the hiring process? Thoughts?
Am I the only one who doesn't understand why teachers refer to the students as "friends"?

The subscription ad on the front of nytimes.com says "Discover the truth with us." 😂😂😂😂😂 what a load of 💩.
Just got staffed in a vital role on a vital project... Also just got a job offer to do something fantastic at another shop. How do I proceed?
When you're dressed like a bum and an AA gold tries to check you for boarding position. Oh wait I got upgraded and you didn't.
Can't decide if it's best to move to a less stressful job or not. Some days I love it, and am up for early promotion, other days I'm inconsolably sad and can't think of anything but applying elsewhere

When you realize you're "going native" (aka too immersed in client culture because you sit there 100% of the time) because your colleagues call you out. #stagedintervention #goodlookingout #grateful
