Do we really need these charts and numbers? If y’all looked around the fucking agency every day and you never noticed, what good are these numbers gonna do?

These numbers don’t highlight how bad the problem is. This includes agencies, like in South Africa, where there are a few more blacks. If you were to look at each city, it would be even worse.

Kind of aggravated with the example male leadership is setting right now with regard to parenting at CV. At least 5 men in leadership have had new babies in the last month and it seems like some have taken no time off or only the bare minimum. We have 12 weeks and should be encouraged to use it! If leadership isn’t taking advantage of their own policy, what does that say to the rest of the staff? In my perspective, this is likely further contributing to the gender disparity in CV leadership
