I’ve been interviewing for a role at a PE firm for awhile and really like the team, culture, investment philosophy, etc. however I would be the only woman at the firm if I get an offer/accept. While I’ve spent most of my career surrounded by older white men, I’ve always had at least one or two female peers in the office. Any advice on how to factor this into my decision? Anyone else been in a similar situation?

I interviewed for a job in a diff location and during interviews they asked me multiple times how I felt abt relocating. I said it was fine, but the more I think about it the less I’m open to relocating. I now have an offer from them, is there anyway to negotiate no relocation? They are remote until mid year 2021. I’m Happy to fly in on a monthly basis but I don’t want to move there.
