^ Agree with this – TOB is great. They should start a bowl on here for the anon. Also big fan of Creative Equals – proper measurable action like the Creative Equality Standard, meaning agencies can’t just pay lip service.


There's a Facebook group called "The Other Box" for creatives working in London. It's pretty active. It's mostly to promote job opportunities and stuff, but it's unfortunately not anonymous, so there's not much room to swap stories/experiences.

It would be nice if all of them just come to this Fishbowl instead 😁

I would love to hear views on should you make Diversity & Inclusion training mandatory? Why or why not? Thanks for any feedback.


How did you begin to implement equity and inclusion into your organization?


I’m watching the creativity awards on ad age. I decided to take a shot everytime I see a POC nominated. So its been 35 minutes and I have only seen one. But that wasn’t even the surprising part. When they went to the Inclusion award that’s when I just started laughing at the amount of Karen’s and Micheals in position. Not one person with a shade of color was in the category lol 🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️


So i applied to Deloitte GPS as part of the inclusion hiring blitz and was supposed to hear back today. I haven’t received anything yet. I wanted to ask if you get an email confirming that you have been selected to interview or the recruiters directly reach out. I am out of the US right now dealing with some family stuff so i don’t have access to my regular phone number.


My heart really goes out for the women in Pakistan, the amount of harassment they face on daily basis. I wonder why that is, is the root cause the extreme level of gender segregation.

My company is in need of a update online, could use your opinions! We need to better showcase our culture (caring, supportive, fun, intelligent IT industry leaders) as well as diversity. We are predominantly white still but making strides to improve here. What’s the best way to approach? I don’t want to seem disingenuous or that we are singling out our diverse employees (asking for photos). We have a remote and on-site workforce about 350+ EEs. Non white EEs make up about 35% of the company rn.


How gender diverse is your recruitment pipeline? Have been observing a year-on-year decline in female candidates as a % of total candidates. Recent few years have been in the low to mid 30s. Interested to see how other firms are going.


What do you think:

Teachers should/should not discuss their opinions and ideas around sexuality, gender, and religion with students.

Hi everyone! I’d love to hear your thoughts on EEO surveys during the job application process. Is it more beneficial to self-disclose or refrain from disclosing race, gender, disability, etc?

Which method is more likely to get your application noticed? Any guidance would be helpful on my job hunt. Thank you.


Just got an offer at Deloitte. Feel like comp/rank are too low due to lack of diversity of interviewers. :( Can anyone relate?

My black experience at my current place....... supervisor is known to be racist at a diversity and inclusion school. Great! Unfortunately I am the ONLY black person in our department. She "our leader" doesn’t make me feel like I am part of the team. I feel like an outcast. When I try to bond with other members on my team. She quickly divide us. I would like to give yall more information. I need some wine.

From the moderator, for discussion.

Should white males be concerned that current focus on diversity will lead to negative results

If Yes, why and under what conditions
If No, why not?


Does anyone have any metrics/ benchmarks they could share on diversity hires? We're putting goals together for 2023 and our senior leadership wants 30% of all candidates interviewed and hired to be gender or ethnic diverse.
