I am a 0+2 BA. Wondering what resources are available for black colleagues. I keep seeing MBN PD thrown around. Can someone explain how to get in touch with a MBN PD and what they can do for you?
This is an excellent thread in the McKinsey bowl. If you have tips for *us* please post them here
This is ridiculous… Indian colleague complaining about how MBN colleagues receive more “help”
10 Black partners out of 392. Not sure if that’s good or not because I am not certain how many Black colleagues we have - but I am happy for them. I’m sure they sacrificed quite a lot.
Tips on projecting confidence? Feedback I get often is along the lines of you’re doing great, but be more confident etc. Curious if other Black women here in particular have struggled with this
What was your onboarding process like? Have you felt supported? I feel like I have to ask for a lot of things that I shouldn't, and I'm struggling to get acclimated to my new role.
If you have not joined MBN and if you have not connected with the MBN folks, please do it now. These folks are insightful and supportive.
New here 0+1ASC, and I am up for staffing in 4 days.
Does anyone have a study starting on October 31st?
Do you feel supported by black leaders at the firm? I feel like they have treated me worse than non Black leaders, despite the fact that I have consistently supported them by doing non-study client de…
I’ve heard people say “remember, PD are not your friends”. What do they mean when they say this (similar concept as HR are not your friends?) and does it apply to MBN PD as well (in your experience)?
Friends, if you are in London, please reach out to this person and offer some insights https://joinfishbowl.com/post_5zqjeqq7ia…
Hi everyone, I think that certain people have “reported” the “black consultants | strategies and tactics” bowl because they are angry it exists.
The bowl doesn’t show up on search results …
MBN - Immediately connect with MBN. They are there to help you.
LoP (Letter of Proposal) work - super impactful. Proposal wins help create opportunities
Networking - be intentional & network in your practice if you’re on the expert track or in a few practice areas of interest if you’re integrative
Training - in your practice area (expert track) or practice areas of interest (integrative)
Now is the time to select your doctor, dentist, etc. & maybe get some appointments out of the way
MBN leaders, can you help answer this question?
I saw this out in the main McK bowl and I want to ask it here. Are you hesitant to join a study where you would be the only black person? Have you ever been on a study where you’re the only black pers…
Hello everyone, please enable networking so that we can create a welcoming environment for everyone that joins and so that we can start to get to know each other.
I’m at the DCO today and please believe I am waving and smiling at every Black person I see!
What are thoughts on Black hair and professionalism? I’ve grown quite comfortable wearing my natural hair out. I still get nervous about switching up my hair between twists, braids, different styles o…
My more melanated folks, any recommendations on laptop camera lighting (e.g., clip on lights)? Would be nice to look chocolate vs grey-ish on calls

On a scale of 1 - 5,how are you feeling @ the Firm?

2= Sporadic/Inconsistent Support.There are ups & downs which I’ve had to navigate by seeking short term,situational help.
4= Mostly Supported. I have mentors & sponsors, but I have to nudge them to advise me or to act on my behalf.
5= Completely Supported. I have active & engaged mentors & sponsors who regularly/actively check on/help me.

I am questioning why the Managing Director, Bob S., posted an LGBTQ message during June but was wholly silent on Black History Month on LinkedIn.
