As a non-black person of colour, I am sick of other non-black people of colour speaking about racism black people go through — particularly those who were not even born or grew up in this society. Even those who grew up in their suburban homes with minimal interaction with black people need to check themselves. Time to put your person of colour card down and step aside when the topic is racism both institutional and unconscious towards black people. THANK YOU!

Partner told me today year end review prep that promotion to next level depends on all the people “in line in front of” me who “have been waiting longer”. I was asked if it’s fair that someone who has been in the role longer is passed over for a junior person who is younger and less tenure. Do big firms even pretend that performance and progression matters? Why work hard if all one has to do is sit and wait until the next one up?

Say you apply to an internal role (and your manager knows about it), but you don’t get the job. Do you just let your manager know about it casually, and reiterate your interest in and commitment to the current team? Wouldn’t your manager be a bit wary of your renewed interest in the team now that your internal job application fell through ?

I am going to miss my students tomorrow and Friday. I love them so much, and I don’t want to be digital; I want to teach them in person! This year has definitely been a challenging year, but I am so thankful I have been afforded the opportunity to teach in a classroom. My time at home during this pandemic was mentally taxing, and seeing my kids in person this semester has given me life. Every day I am teaching is day that is more than a gift.
