My second job prospect in 6 months that fizzled bc they’re suddenly looking for women only. I’m all for more diversity and inclusion in adland, but isn’t that also gender discrimination and illegal?

I’m a partner at a small firm looking to lateral. Many firms that were beyond my reach a year ago are now eager to pick me up. Firms that I should be selling myself to are instead selling their firm to me. (And I am a very confident person; no imposter syndrome here.) Is there some larger diversity push going on? Is it hard for bigger firms to retain female partners? Curious what the market is.

I am teaching a week long summer course for students with ASD. I will be leading a morning meeting for 30-60 minutes daily, then meeting with each student for 30 minutes daily, all over Zoom.
