Wokewashing fading out? I work for a Publicis Groupe agency that went hard to promote DE&I and pushing diversity hiring goals last year. I was optimistic but all the big talk has subsided significantly since the summer. Anyone else feelings or seeing this at your agency?

Do you guys use ”Hi guys” in the office to address everyone irregardless of gender or is that banned?
Thinking about buying a home in the next couple of years either around the Chicago area or suburbs with access to the city. What’s the best neighborhood for a number of factors such as- diversity, safetiness, property value, school rankings, overall funness? I’m a South Asian man married to a White woman, so the location diversity does matter to me when raising kids. Thank you for all your help!
I’m still trying to process seeing an agency exec well known for dismissing and ignoring POC held up as an exemplary diversity champion for women at the 3% Conference.
Why diversity is important in the workplace
Could anyone share examples with me of how your agency’s briefing docs (creative briefs, channel briefs etc..) includes prompts for diversity and inclusion or cultural considerations?
$50k for diversity leadership (MD) referrals... calling all MDs, PPEds, PPDs and such... who wants to join Accenture and split the profits with me?!!! Haha
Did you know? “Women receive ‘negative personality criticism’, such as being called bossy or told to ‘watch their tone’ in around 75% of performance reviews. Men, on the other hand, rarely do.” From https://cultureplusconsulting.com/2018/03/10/gender-bias-work-assertiveness-double-bind/
DEI hires don’t address the issue. We know they are powerless positioned designed to give the impression of ‘doing something’ rather than grooming and promoting the diversity under your own roof. There’s a problem when your clients are more progressive and demanding of change than you are, agencies.
There’s been a rise in Diversity equity and inclusion trainings. My experience with these has always been terrible. How has your experience been? Anyone have good experiences? If yours has been terrible too, what should they have done differently?

“39% of our new hires and 11% of our senior leaders are women.”@Mckinsey http://www.wsj.com/articles/for-a-company-to-achieve-gender-diversity-the-ceo-cant-do-it-alone-1443600381
Difference between female vs male leadership is based on gender bias. I'm labeled "aggressive, stubborn, and difficult to work with" by male peers, while they're praised as decisive and direct. WTF 😡
Advise on handling rates negotiations with BIPOC and non-male creators? I always want to accept first bid and get uncomfortable when my bosses push to undercut rates (especially now when money is tight), because there is a whole history of BIPOC and non-male people getting paid less. I’ve tried to push back but struggle to articulate this to them. (For the record, I’m POC female and my bosses are white males, and race/gender convos are already very difficult with them.)
🐠 who live or have lived in Chicago - how was your experience when it came to friendliness, diversity/racism, and access to Asian foods and grocery stores? I’m considering relocating to the South loop neighborhood - single person in their 30s, not interested in suburbia life

I’m an immigrant with H1B. Been wanting to get out of my firm so badly but every time I apply outside, I start getting dragged into work at my current firm.I was going through some pretty rigorous interviews (I failed them) and have been in a slump since. Meanwhile my current firm keeps dumping work on me and I can’t find the time to apply outside. Anyone been through something similar? I’m losing hope.The politics is also so toxic, they started screwing me over since my last performance review.

My current role is a Business Analyst. I am very comfortable interacting with people and also Ambiguity. Recently, I developed quite a lot of interest in Product management and I want to make a transition into this stream. I am completely aware that Business Analysis is different from Product Management. I started taking courses on Udemy to understand more about Product Management and also started reading books. I would love to get handson with the concepts that I am learning, but not sure (TBC)

Poll for the group - How common are PIPs at the various Big 4? Is it like the whole bottom 10% of everyone’s group or a once-in-a-while-this-person-is-dumb kind of thing? Have heard of quite a few within my group and wondering if it’s normal or something isn’t quite right.
Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
