Has anyone seen or discussed this Petition for SHRM must support Black Lives Matter & the LGBTQ community? I’ve grown increasingly concerned and disappointed in SHRM’s lack of vocal support for employment protections for LGBTQ+ and black and brown workers, especially as a black woman in HR. It seems like SHRM is overly focused on what is absolutely “legal” and not what is right. I’m of the opinion HR professionals must not only be “legal” but have a relevant and compassionate stance

Poll: IPad Pro 11” vs IPad Pro12.9” Why: Because I have Best Buy points I need to use in 2 days. How many: $500 equivalent. Use: Just traveling, reading, etc. have a MacBook Pro, so definitely nota supplement to a laptop. Commenters: “you can buy something other than iPad”. Yes, I can but I have most electronic gadgets I need and I rent, so no big appliances. But open to suggestions if there’s something very out of the ordinary from Best Buy. Thank you in advance :)

Ex-Consulant here that now works for a big name Real Estate Investment Trust. Saw on LinkedIn that EY has an America’s REIT Leader. Didn’t know that much attention was paid to the REIT space. Are there really consulting teams dedicated to the REIT space in the Big 4? Love working for a REIT and would love to jump back to consulting if there were teams dedicated to the industry.
Which firms have strong public sector strategy practices outside of McK and BCG? Thinking in terms of projects such as digital strategy for a federal agency, COVID response plans, K-12 education restructuring roadmap Not so much PMO or tech implementation projects
At what point does the value of a degree fall off? I'm in my early 30s, and have five years of experience, and work on a very theoretically interesting project. I believe I'm on track to promotion in the next year. So, I could put in a year of full time school to check the box off, but I'd be sacrificing hobbies and social life (not to mention cost). Is this FOMO or is there real opportunity here?
