Forgot to mention another incident a couple of years later. My boss' admin cornered me in an office, pushed me against a wall, and tried to unzip my pants. I literally ran out of the office to get out of that situation. I never said a thing to anyone at the company. I'm black and was technically more senior, so I figured I wouldn't have won the battle of my word against her word.

I’m sorry that happened to you. As a woman, I understand how humiliating it feels

Yes. Years ago when I was a rookie. I mentioned it to someone more senior and they laughed in my face and called me a (bundle of sticks).

There’s a Cd here that said something to an Asian girl about her not being able to see the screen clearly Bc of the shape of her eyes and that’s why she’s not a good AD - apparently she has a pile of hr files against her but she wins clients and pitches - I think at end of day money wins over all from what I’ve seen - harassment etc everything

@ CD1 - wtf??! Messed up...

I’m very frustrated because I’ve been interviewing with companies for 6-8 months to only be rejected at the final round consistently.

I have lots of relevant experience and I articulate it well but they don’t think it’s a “fit” for them. Finance firms are the only ones that interview me, can’t break into other industries. I feel trapped in my current role and everything is taking a huge toll on my mental health.

Does anyone have tips on how to manage this?

Monday Morning rumination: unsolicited advise is criticism.

Much to reflect on with this topic. Last week I was told in a 1:1 with a new contact that I was “too direct”. After some time chewing on the conversation I was struggling to place the emotions I was feeling. Turns out I was feeling guilty and shame for being me, for taking up space. Lesson of the week: unsolicited advice is a criticism of you, a micro aggression of who you are, and being “too much”. What would you do??

Coworker will also send me dms saying I need to respond to the team group chat after another coworker on the team responded before me.
