They are pointing out that most agencies they “diversity initiatives” has often lead to hiring more white women. Yes hiring more women is good but you can really count that as diversity if it’s mostly white women


As a woman of color, thank you.

I’ve said this in an interview as a white woman

Ahhh I get it now

Story time - after getting waitlisted at Wharton and Kellogg, I thought I was done. Ended up getting into HBS at the age of 31 with a 680 GMAT. All I want to say is, it is possible, no matter your age or supposed “bad” stats! You are more than the numbers on a piece of paper, don’t give up before giving it your best.

Been asked to expand my practice into a new industry. New for me, my team, and the firm. As far as I can tell we have no relationships with any of the target accounts... however our offering addresses a critical CxO/BoD issue at these companies.

Any creative ideas for how to break down doors for a small, niche firm? We do incredibly well once we get a meeting but because we compete with MBB, it’s hard to get the initial meeting since few CxOs know us outside the industries we currently serve.


Any books/self help materials for someone who is constantly worrying (and waste a lot of unnecessary time)? E.g. No matter if i pass or fail an interview, there is always something to worry about. The worrying/anxiety multiplies when I proceeded further in the interview stages. Now that I signed the offer and is pending background checks, my anxiety is off the roof as it itches closer to my starting date.

There’s a huge amount of pressure being the only black person in my practice and a top performer as well. Some wypipo here don’t make it easy. I’m just just trying to let my #blackexcellence shine.


So disappointing when you meet a POC, an executive in their company, and they share similar trials and tribulations as you in their career but they turn out to be entitled, rude and ego-centric. Smdh.


Any positive experiences/advice for people looking to switch departments?


So, I started a job in lockdown. During that time I spoke to management about BLM and racism in the industry. I’m POC. They were open and positive about it. Last week my CD said that though he’s really happy with my work, I‘ll be let go after my trial period because the agency is not doing well financially. Which is true. But I also notice that after I’m gone, the creative dept will be only white and mostly male. Not intentional...right? (interns are gone too, one being the only Black creative)


Anybody struggle with imposter syndrome as a minority? How and why? Need some coping strategies man.


Have been getting hit up by places about great jobs I’m excited about, but they happen to be at places with known diversity problems. I can’t shake that feeling that they’re talking to me because I’m a POC and they need to diversify, not necessarily because of my experience and skill set. Anyone have advice of how to fight that feeling? Other advice?

Thoughts on that dove ad?


It throws me off every time my co-worker tries to make me feel dumb by saying:

Do any of you know any good sites to find good black or poc therapist? Zoc docs offerings are very limited

Are there any organizations out there where POC in the industry can provide mentorship to young POC looking to break in or already in? Looking to give back through mentorship but don’t know where to start. Would love an Asian organization, but I don’t want to limit the field.
