I’m a partner at a small firm looking to lateral. Many firms that were beyond my reach a year ago are now eager to pick me up. Firms that I should be selling myself to are instead selling their firm to me. (And I am a very confident person; no imposter syndrome here.) Is there some larger diversity push going on? Is it hard for bigger firms to retain female partners? Curious what the market is.

Why diversity is important in the workplace
How would you make the business case for adding more diversity to the workforce. I think we take it as a given that people will support this, but some people need to see $$ and #s to be moved.
Producers, what changes are you making in your roles to promote lasting social change? Demanding diversity in reels? Pushing representation in casting? How can we be (and do) better? All ideas are welcome.
Do NOT claim you are "colorblind" in the workplace. 1. DE&I knowledge is now a core leadership competency. Colorblind claims will earn you the reputation of being DEI-ignorant at best & racist at worst. 2. Colorblindness within the context of workplace diversity is an obvious lie. You do NOT want to be painted as an intellectually dishonest leader. 3. Colorblind claims signal that you lack the leadership skills & vocabulary to have key conversations. Ask questions here, in this safe space.
Any Latinos feeling left out of all this diversity buzz? Seems we are always invisible :/

Nyc starting manager salary
Remind me what it’s like working for a firm where people know how to use technology? Nobody at my firm knows how to use zoom. They don’t know how to share a screen. So they use their phone camera and it’s lopsided and shaky.
I'm having difficulty making personal connections with students this year. I teach hybrid, so I have a room half full of students in front of me and half at home on zoom. I have tried playing educational games, I greet them each time I see them, I try to do small talk, I make positive comments on their work, it just isn't happening. Any ideas?

Got an offer from uber. Taking a pay cut on the base side but compensated with the equity portion where it is a little lower in aggregate than my current salary. Thoughts?
Non-MBA Senior associate that got manager promo at big four but also a Sr Program Manager at Amazon. Amazon is still offering better pay even with the manager promo but I have built a strong brand at my consulting firm and have been getting promoted almost every year. Not sure if I should leave knowing I am on partner track and go to Amazon and work hard again to build such a strong brand there too. What do you guys think? I like and am comfortable at my current firm but money wise I’m not happy
