Same. Also getting better projects. I volunteered for extra work on top of my crazy brand and they never gave me work. They would complain they didn’t have enough people but I’d ask to join projects and would get no feedback.


Unfortunately, movement to a new title has been difficult. I’ve noticed my white and male counterparts have been promoted to manager title whereas i was “promoted” to a coordinator role despite experience.


I’m struggling with this as well. Should I use the internal job posting or look for another gig. I’m watching younger folks, and nepotism babies get a head.

I have been subjected to abusive treatment by colleagues for an extended period of time; the HR team was well-aware and did not address the racial bias and inappropriate commentary head on. The revolving door of staff is not a viable bandaid and new hires are tone deaf to the trauma and damage that I and existing staff experienced. Needless to say, in 2021 we are no closer to any sense of equality or inclusion.

Hi Everyone, need some advice. The only reason why I took my current role is because my direct supervisor would be a black woman VP- I was obviously excited because I've never worked with another black woman before. She's been out on maternity leave since September and I've had to cover her role and do my job, which is two levels above mine and supervising someone above my level. Yesterday the SVP tells me they found a new VP (ww) who would be my new boss.

If there is any talented jr. copy I’m looking for someone to join me at a great agency in Amsterdam, Netherlands. DM me for more info :)

Hi - first, white woman here. Please let me know if I am intruding! That said, a friend of mine is looking for CD CWs and she was really hoping to bring a woman of color into the role. It sounds like there aren’t even applicants. I racked my brain and while I know many who are in the art side, I don’t know a single writer. If you are interested, DM me your book! It’s a fantastic job. Also, I was wondering if there is a reason there seem to be less CD writer females of color vs art?
