Women are allowed zero mistakes. Minorities are allowed zero mistakes. Female minorities have always been in a double bind, with no margin of error of any kind allowed. It’s a special kind of hell.

I wish this stuff would get shared in a place dudes can see it. We all know this. (Not a critique on your post btw. I would not have seen this without you posting it here so thank you. But I just mean the larger discussions. Only women tend to attend the 3% conference as an example. I want my bosses to see this article. Men think they’ve already cleared the gauntlet just by not sleeping with their coworkers. But this subconscious bias needs to be addressed in larger conversations. How can we do that?

CD2, umm yeah I was “friends” with my male CD until the minute I as a WOC had to tell them their idea was racially insensitive in order to save the client relationship. We would have been fired on the spot if that idea went to client. Saved the relationship but was blacklisted by the creative team for not knowing my place, and eventually taken off that client because I couldn’t get along with the creative team. You underestimate the power of systemic bias even among male friends at work or non-POC women who forget about intersectionality when either group is confronted with their own biases.

I’m happy to share it in other bowls. Is there an agency leadership bowl :)?

There really should be. Great idea!

Become friends with men. People listen to people they trust. Call them out the second they demonstrate their bias. And humor is more effective than shame. And persuade the male senior leaders young men look up to to be an ally and advocate. That also has a wider impact.

Jesus SSD1 you should have been commended not blacklisted.

Quite disappointed that Bain ignored “LGBT” term and instead referred it as “special group” during a Greater China pre-MBA info session, when asked whether Bain has LGBT diversity program. Bain changed its logo into Pride on LinkedIn but can’t recognize LGBT? I know it’s China, but expect Bain to be more supportive across the firm globally.

I am currently unemployed but I am very curious about everyone’s company signature having she/her or he/him or they displayed. Are companies forcing people to write the pronouns you need to choose?

It seems political. What are your thoughts?
