Any recommendations on PNW / west coast cities to raise kids that offer a diverse community/population? Currently based in Denver so open to states around here and further west. Not having kids yet but this has always been something top of mind for me. Any experience/insight is appreciated :)

I think most of them? Not from there but Seattle and Portland are very diverse and liberal. I also value diversity in my choice of home and it’s why I’m staying in the city (Chicago) vs suburbs so probably the same out West.

Portland is actually not that diverse. My brother in law lives there and is moving for when he has kids because it is known to be extremely white. It is liberal but hasn’t been necessarily inviting to POC.

Haven’t gotten a lot of hits on this so I appreciate the responses! A1 - My cousin lives in Portland and mentions the same. I lived in Chicago for 4 years and it’s fairly diverse but I can’t handle those winters. I think of East Coast when I think of diversity - NYC, Boston, DC. So just looking for people who have lived or know people that live in cities further west that genuinely feel like there’s representation. I can read statistics all I want but don’t know what it’s actually like.

Marriage or promotion 😞 I’m on track to make partner at my company. Due to the audit services we sell, we have to disclose all financial relationships, including those of our SOs. I’m engaged to a private investor, and there is no way he is going to disclose/sell investments because my company tells him to (I don’t blame him; I wouldn’t do this, in his position, either). This means I have to quit if I want to marry him 😞 Anyone else experience this kind of compromise / challenge? Any advice?

I left KPMG after 7 years after being passed over for Director promotion. I left to start a medical business. 3 months in, my partner and I grossed $130K in sales w/ a 60% margin. Consulting prepared us for this and I’m forever grateful for my experience. I’m honestly amazed at how well consulting skills translate to entrepreneurship. I’m sharing this to encourage anyone who’s been on the fence about starting their own thing. Go for it. Consulting will always be there if you need to fall back.

I’ve already exited consulting and don’t care to go back. Have MS from a T10 relevant to my field and no plans to change industries or vertical. Mid-30s in a mid-level strategic role in F500. Not aiming for executive leadership anytime soon but want to work towards eventually. Will I have a glass ceiling in terms of professional growth and compensation without a MBA in corporate America? Would my MS and experience suffice, or do I really need the EMBA for advancement?
