Thoughts on Deloitte getting rid of diversity groups...it seems unnecessary to me. IMO Including white males in the discussion can be accomplished without disbanding groups.

Acn1 - really? What's your source for that? Not buying it.

ACN2 isn't it odd that the white guys who haven't traditionally created inclusive cultures are now breaking up groups formed by those excluded, because white guys want a seat at the table. Diversity groups have never excluded people, those in the majority that care enough to be involved have found ways to get involved.

OP - many many aspects of our culture(s) are odd! In the spirit of transparency - 2 years ago I applied to join a Disability focused group. Thought it would be useful to engage with others who sometimes need to have accommodations made for whatever reason. I was told that there was "... no need for 'allies' in the group...". I'm a Caucasian male, who also happens to be completely deaf in one ear and 95% deaf in the other... basically - you hear there is "something" just nothing discernible. I'd like to think I'm a tolerant guy who works on a merit basis.

Acns doing the same

@ATK1...my b. Missed it.

Of course ACN is copying D ;) It's about being inclusive - not identifying anyone as "special" - and all round meritocracy...

ACN is not doing the same. We are shifting towards BRGs.

BRG?

The head of Deloitte's inclusion program is an Indian woman. Reading her bio, it is believable and likely this was her initiative.

A2 - I am sorry you had that experience - please Follow the US Disability ERG - if you comment in the stream with hashtag #fishbowl I will find you

A3-Business resource groups

Uhh yeah we are, it was mentioned in the Strategy town hall.

A3 - no worries... I'm so over it! Honestly, the ERG is good for people who need it - and frankly, I don't. Fact is, the days of ERGs are numbered.

Hi! First time working with a larger company - suggestions on handling pronouns at work? I’ve worked with smaller agencies where it was easier to bring up. Now I’m on a larger team, talking to/referencing people I’ve never met. I’m less concerned about my own pronouns and more concerned about how to make sure I’m using the correct pronouns for the people I work with. I’ve been structuring sentences to avoid gender specific pronouns but would love to hear suggestions. Thanks!

What core positions should be on the C-Suite in a top creative advertising agency? I'd say a good agency needs a CEO, a CFO and a CCO ... does it really need a Chief Strategy Officer or a Chief Technology Officer or Chief Diversity Officer or a Chief Delivery Officer or a Chief Marketing Officer? Saw this headline in CampaignUK today: "Ogilvy's Jo Arden hire shows planners need a seat in the C-suite" But do they?

How do I cope with a toxic front office staff? I have worked at this school for 20+ years, I don’t want to go to another school, I LOVE my school, the students, the staff & the admin. It’s our front office that is toxic.. It’s the consent yelling at students, parents & teachers that is driving me over the edge. I have consoled teachers when it happens to them. I have endured it by limiting any contact with the front office. Admin is aware of the issue, awaiting to see if any change take place.
