Some Male POC friends deny sexism exists and argues it’s because women are being too sensitive and need to learn to just fit in with the culture (am in Finance) and learn to be more of a ‘leader’ seems to have no problem accepting that racism exists 😐 blows my mind

For the women in Big Four firms what is your level and what has made you stay? I’m an Associate and I’m interested in staying with my firm but rarely do I see a female leader and I worry that when I have children it’ll be hard to juggle it all.

My maternity leave will be over by the end of July. When should I start reaching out to the team (coach, manager/directors etc)? Anyone returned from their maternity leave recently (after COVID) having trouble connecting or getting back on projects due to everyone working from home? Any advise would be much appreciated!!

Question for POC women - do you find racism or sexism more difficult? Personally I feel that while Racism is a more serious issue in the US, I find it more difficult to voice & speak out on feminism issues. Based on my experience People are less likely to deny that racism exists but when I talk about feminism I get the ‘here we go again’ looks

1 AM. Just saw a vid about a child being abused & it brought back so many memories for me & I'm balling. I grew up w/ parents who were totally different. Mom was a "good girl" rarely drank, etc. CONTD

They just announced that layoffs and reduced schedules will be communicated starting next week. I’m super stressed as I’m on maternity leave. Do you think I should contact partners or just wait until I return in a few months?

When I first met my husband, he made more than I did. Over the years, his salary has stayed about the same while mine has grown. Now, I work at a company that gives us stock compensation and am making more money than I ever thought possible. It would be great, but I think it is causing problems in my marriage. Has anyone faced an issue like this? My husband makes snide comments like how it’s my money, not ours. We’ve always been a “what’s yours is mine” kind of couple, so this is sad for me.

Ladies, where do you buy your underwear (not lingerie)? I mostly buy VS, but have found all my newer pairs falling apart at the seams.
