Anyone from mcK QB here? Would you recommend a partner in BCG gamma to switch over? Is it too political there as well or better? Is QB also ruled by a group of French or better diversity in leadership
Ladies, my team is running a workshop on D&I and are looking for examples of micro aggressions or where as a women, there has been instances where you’ve felt uncomfortable in the workplace. Do you have any examples you could share?
What in the world is a Chief Diversity Officer? How is a seven-figure salary offered for this??? Why not just hire ten or fifteen young minorities instead??
If you discovered you were earning around 10% less than a male colleague doing the same role would you push for a pay increase?
I’m having feminist guilt over even thinking this, but has anyone found that working for a male supervisor is SO much easier than working for a female supervisor? And it’s not because I’m super hot, trust me.
I’m a woman in my mid 20s and constantly face situations where people outside of cyber (still within the company) that I’m dealing with (older men in particular) who always push back against my cyber/technical recommendations even with managers cc’d. I studied, earned certs, and worked hard to get to where I am. Is it bc of my gender and age? In all honesty, I’ve written recommendations that male counterparts voiced in the past that had ZERO pushbacks.
In honor of Equal Pay Day, post your age, salary, city, and gender. It will be interesting to have a list.
Given the challenge of gender equality for clients and firms, how do you personally plan to change this for both your industry and those of your clients? Do you see this as a priority?
Does anybody else ever feel like they don't personally feel impacted by the gender gap or feel any inequalities to them (again personally) as a female leader? We have discussions to ensure we are treated fairly but I feel respected by my team, colleagues and leads for my work and have never felt that I was treated differently to my peers based on my gender. As far as I know, my pay is comparable too. I can't be the only one?
Seeing that there's so many rishta questions and the rishta bowl not being the most active, I thought I'd do us all a solid and make an ISO post for anyone looking to post their info to. Anyone interested in someone's profile DM them directly. Format for posting: Gender / Age / Location / Height (if comfortable with sharing) / Citizenship ( if comfortable with sharing) / any other info about yourself or what you're looking for Let's get people married in 2022! 🎉
As far as preferred gender pronouns go, I’m all about choosing he, she, xe, ze, whatever you want to describe yourself as - but can we please rethink using “they” and “their” to describe a single person? It gets confusing ya’ll. There’s zero judgement here, just grammatically speaking it introduces so much ambiguity and misunderstanding into the English language. That is all. Feel free to clap back if you think I’m out of line or misunderstanding something - always here to learn
Salary transparency's been on my mind. It seems like now is a great time for agencies to implement it to help maybe attract better and more diverse talent, keep high retention, etc. Does your agency do any sort of salary transparency? If yes: How'd they implement it? What have been the pros & cons? If no: do you wish your agency had salary transparency? If you feel comfortable sharing your gender and age (or level) that would be interesting to hear POV!
I'm an AD with 15 years of experience looking to relocate to NYC. I've been in an agency setting for the past 7 years. Experience with major clients. I'd need an agency/in-house that would be flexible with me being remote while I sell my house, find an apt, move, etc. Diversity (not just white guys). Genuinely caring for employees. Moving up in the company. Coworkers feel like a 2nd family. I'm sure I'm looking for a unicorn agency here, but if anyone knows of one, message me!
Any 🐟 here at Slalom in Chicago? Was wondering how you guys feel about the firm and your experiences there coming from a group that lacks a lot of diversity so wondering if Slalom Chicago is any diff
Has any one left their consulting role to pursue a recruiting or diversity and inclusion role within their firm? Thinking about making a change and curious to hear if anyone has done this and had advice on how they navigated the career change.

I am an Indian and grew up in india. I have been in usa for 15+ years and married to a fantastic man. I hear moms talking about sending kids to school with diversity and get world view. To us our family is diverse , I had zero exposure to outside Indian culture until I was 15. What is the benefit of diversity to growing kids ? If anyone is a first gen immigrant what you wish your parents didn’t do? My parents raised me in dictatorship style and I don’t want to do that to my daughter but contd..
Safe space here. Anybody admit to being a closest racist? I can safe growing up I was. It was completely instilled by my parents. I grew up in a small town in Iowa, I never even really saw much diversity. It was a culture shock when I went to college. Exposure is key. It’s horrible when I talk to my parents about the current evens with police brutality going on. Just wanted to express.
My company’s CEO sent this out as part of a broader note on diversity: https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/selectatouchtest.html

Ah now it did.
Arguing with the bf about "work husbands." I personally have a lot of colleagues who have one, whether it be a work wife or husband. Let’s set the record straight, upvote if you have one!
I wish every Sunday could feel like this. When you've just rolled off a project and in the pleasant shade of some beach time
More Serious. How many have friends struggling to find a job? I still have a few from college out for ~2 years. I keep hearing the economy is improving, unemp is down. I consider myself fortunate.
A good Saturday night is having no work to do. A great Saturday night is having no work to do and not having to fly out the next day.
serious: how much will I die if I drink tap water using the cups provided in the hotel rooms?
Don't you guys sometimes wish you could just tell your client counterpart to "fuck off" 😕
I like to imagine that all my fellow colleagues I know are on here too secretly posting about and to one another
I seriously check this app more than Facebook, Reddit, and Twitter combined. You are all ridiculous people.
I'd seriously love to try this. Anyone else consider this in lieu of travel? nytimes.com/2015/11/29/realestate/our-year-of-living-airbnb.html
When you're in the office until midnight printing cause your SM doesn't want to pay the kinkos bill...
That moment when you dial in to a client call remotely and they have printed agendas for the live team and no one sent an electronic version to you. #wtfisgoingon
Can someone name a hotel chain where I don't have to rip the headboard off the bed or dismantle the bedside table to find a power socket to charge my phone... please?
so happy im flying home today
