Any ideas on how to prevent my face from lighting up when switching to lighter colored tabs on Zoom/Teams meetings?

Well, that’s happening because lighter tabs output more light from your screen, which can impact the overall lighting of your face depending on other lighting in the room or how pasty you happen to be. Try a combination of the following: - Reduce screen brightness - Increase brightness/qty of other light sources in your space so the screen isn’t the primary light output - Get a spray tan

Opinions needed: I’m involved in BPN (black professionals network) at work. We try to have events and touch points each quarter, but obviously because of COVID we haven’t been able to do so. I am trying to brainstorm ideas for connecting virtually (email newsletters, zoom calls, etc) and possible topics to be included and discussed so that it won’t end up in just a negative venting session. I would like to keep it positive and upbeat. Ideas/suggestions welcome!

I need advice about Zoom. Is it easier to have a zoom link with your personal Id or a simple generated one?

I never thought I’d say this, but I kinda miss the networking events and stuff. I used to just show up to those to be a good “firm citizen,” but I’d really love to see another lawyer in person instead of through a Zoom call. If I ran into one of my old classmates from law school, I’d probably hug them right now.

Is anyone here in the CBS admitted students Slack? 😊

How should I approach an ominous zoom appointment with supervisinpartner and managing partner? I’m a 3rd year associate. This is a new job, my first day was the first day the whole firm worked from home. It’s also much more challenging and demanding than my previous firm, which is what I wanted, but I haven’t been able to dive in and face the challenge the way I had planned to because I’m really struggling with working from home, both logistically and psychologically....
