There were people of color hired that they showed during the townhall. I'm coming from an agency that only had 1 creative Black person. In fact, this company has the most Black people I've ever seen in my entire career. So was happy to see that! Also, for a company so large, I look for the personal in my team/department and agency within the network. It's great to see what the other agencies are doing because I'm busy otherwise.

The town halls lately have been more of the higher ups I think because of our transition to IPG Health. However before that, we would hear from a mix of people across different levels and teams. Hopefully that will come back in future town halls!

As a male supervisor, should I refer to my two female paralegals as “hey guys” or “hey ladies”? English is not my first language and woke is really making it difficult for me.

So it’s been a month since we all started talking about diversity in the ad business more with some focus. Has anyone seen any real progress from their employer? (Policy, pro bono work, programs, hiring etc). Genuinely curious as my agency is treading water.

Hi ladies, looking for advice: My team is tiny and we're recruiting for someone below my level Myself and the only other junior (above me) both didn't decide to push one candidate forward as she was just eh (and personally, she no-showed once and was late) plus there were definitely better candidates However, my manager wanted to push her forward anyways (I believe for diversity/personal bias) Given my manager has a lot of influence in general, I'm stressed she's going to get the role (CONT)

How much do adcoms really care about candidates who are first gen college students coming from poor URM backgrounds? I wrote about it in my essays because that experience impacted me heavily, but I guess I can't keep shake being skeptical because nobody gave a damn all of my life. I feel like they may care and it may have a material impact on admissions chances, but only insofar as they can check a diversity box. Am I just salty? I do have a chip on my shoulder I'd like to do something about

Lots of right wing hysteria about liberals trying to engineer equality of outcome to correct sexual/racial inequities (in higher ed, for example).
