That’s what diversity in advertising is though. A bunch of white women. It’s sad but it’s true.

Has anyone else's firms essentially dropped their DEI programming? After last summer, we had a lot of virtual meetings with speakers and awareness weeks for various affinity groups. The diversity committee also had meetings planned. The awareness weeks scheduled for 2021 summer, fall, and winter never happened, and the diversity committee meetings keep getting canceled and never rescheduled.

A senior leader at my company has his company picture as one of him with his son. I’m curious… do you think moms who might use a similar photo would be judged more negatively (ie perceived to be more family oriented / less invested in her work) or do you think this perception is impacted by seniority (a senior leader posting something like this —> positive impression vs a more junior person —> negative impression regardless of gender)… or both? Or is this just not a thing at all?
