Any programs that are state-funded and working with inclusion? We have a start up inclusion, part-day classroom this year.
In your opinion, what can schools and districts do to make racial diversity in management and corporate leadership positions a priority?
D&I initiatives are clearly important, but the sad state of where we are at is that often people that “make it", never reach back. How do we get “us” to engage with and help “us”.
🐠- Had an interesting discussion on the date tonight and looking for inputs. For the massage, do you keep your underwear on or take it off? Please include your gender.
There is a lot of discussion about gender discrimination and providing extra support to women, which I agree is a good thing. But it’s a reality that there are many women who have had much more ...
Just joined a new firm and had lunch with a few folks through D&I. Was told point blank that they are only recruiting from target schools for new hires. Anyone else find this ignorance disturbing?
Some people think that SPED students should be in their own classrooms because working with them can distract teachers from general instruction. Do you think SPED students should be included in regular classes?
What’s diversity looking like at your agency? What inclusion initiatives are you excited about? There are a lot of black folks at FCB Chicago, but we could be doing more
Does the word “inclusion” do more harm than good? What if the panel we simply said “Diversity & Equity”? My thought here is that inclusion insinuates that anyone who isn’t in the “majority” needs to feel “included”, which could be somewhat off putting. Shouldn’t the goal be for everyone to feel equal instead of simply feeling included? I’d love to get some opinions on this!
Teaching in a classroom with no windows? Help me find the positives, and any suggestions if you've had this environment!!! Thanks!
Vent session: Those of you working for small companies or who have worked for small companies, do you ever feel stretched thin? Here’s some background: I started my role a month ago, with companies acknowledging the Black Lives Matter movement *rolls eyes,* my current employer has asked me to join a newly created diversity committee. Also, I’ll be leading campus recruiting initiative, building partnerships with HBCUs near our offices and still doing my actual job.
I want to read a good book on growth mindset and how to implement/encourage students in the classroom. There are MANY out there! Does anyone have a favorite?
On Monday, we'll have like an hour to go into our classrooms to get anything we need to start making lessons for distance learning. what do i need?
When I started at a big advertising agency 12 years ago, every young single person was dating someone from the agency. Some of them grew into serious relationships and one of them got married. Today, people are scared to hold eye contact with someone of the opposite gender on the chance it makes uncomfortable. Agency hours and life are challenging to mental health as￼￼￼ it is. I think it’s wrong to forbid romantic relationships at work. What does everybody else think?￼
First-year 5th grade teacher here. Once I am able to get in my classroom, I will only have 2 weeks to get ready. Any advice on what I can do to prep before getting into my room would be appreciated.
I firmly believe it should be a requirement for all administrators (from APs/principals to superintendent) go back into the classroom for 1 year after every 5 years in their current admin job.
so cheesed off with my firm. New hire 5 months ago, 1 small project and have had to beg for 2 week data cleanup projs for utilization. All remote. No direction. Makes me hate consulting.
Diversity is something that BBs have been pushing in recent years, but how well has it actually been executed? How diverse is your group and do you feel like diversity recruits are treated the same?
Anyone who got h1b transfer approved can share timeline? How long did it take the law firm form gathering docs to post LCA to file, then finally you gave notice?
Has anyone seriously considered the improvement on the lives of working parents post covid? With more flexibility and wfh opportunities this will be a game changer.
Long shot but I am lacking 3000 delta miles for a flight; am local at the moment so no miles here. Other than purchasing from Delta, what other ways to get that many points?
Alion Science and Technology, anyone? A friend just interviewed there, and I’d never heard of them. Thanks
Ok to wear a blazer when traveling to an out of town client for a day trip, or too pretentious? Just finished first year.
I overheard a convo between Associates in IFS (Internal Firm Services) complaining how they don't make as much as client facing staff. Well... What do they expect?
Has anyone experienced a salary reduction as a result of COVID-19? If so, how much? Do you think 20% is unreasonable? Is 33%? Can an employer cut a salary 50% but require the same hours?
Hey guys, One of my friends, a masters student in marketing, lost her internship due to covid. Please let me know if you know of any company looking to hire a marketing intern in the Greater Toronto Area. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 🙏🏻 Thank you and stay safe!
What would you do? I was laid off and now have two directions: 1) Back to old job in industry with security and knowing what I’m getting/how to do the job well/job security but $15k reduction in salary plus nominal API still working 60+ hrs a week... 2) Consulting again at big 4 but don’t know team and threat of unpredictability/more layoffs but $25k increase in salary. Frankly feeling torn. Also, yes, I realize how great it is to have options these days.
F🐠, what are your thoughts on men approaching you at the gym? I’ve heard mixed things. I’ve been going to the gym for 9+ years and have always been against approaching women at the gym. I can’t go to bars rn so the gym is literally the only place I go to aside from the grocery stores. I’m kind of tempted to test it out... there’s a girl at the gym I’d risk getting covid for (kidding but not really) lol
Question for New York residents, what is the average duration for the interview process for a job you apply for start to finish?
