Can someone share gender pay gap articles? The only stuff I found doesn't control for education and experience and just looks at the total average by gender. Would like to see the pay gap difference when these variables are the same. TIA.

Parents are deciding between moving to WVirginia vs Virginia for retirement to be closer to us based in fairfax, va(ideally be at 1 hour driving distance). They currently in the mid west but WVirginia appeals to them because of low taxes, low cost of living. We are also poc so appreciate some diversity. What are some areas you would recommend both in Va and WV? What else should they consider prior to house hunting? Dad likes to garden/farm as well so looking for homes with large backyards. Tia!
So how many more press releases of white women in leadership roles bragging about diversity will we admit they have taken over the conversation about diversity and are the only benefiting from it?
Diversity in advertising is great, however I think it should also include diversity in opinion/political views. Anyone agree/disagree?
Holy crap, is it common in professional services to openly refer to people as "diversity hires"? I mean I went to the same top 20 b school, paid the same $120k, got the same 650+ gmat.
What are some books every young man should read by 30? Or non gender specific. Needing some wholistic wisdom for my basic white kid ass.
My best friend & I got pregnant around the same time. We didn’t know the other was even trying - just a happy surprise. But now I am going through a miscarriage and I don’t know how to feel. Lots of jealousy, but I’m still so happy for them. I knew it was a possibility (1/4 pregnancies end in miscarriage) but why did it have to be me? I don’t want to go to her gender reveal next week, it’s still just so painful but I feel like a horrible person for harboring these negative feelings towards her.
What kinds of production diversity requests/protocols/mandates is anyone else getting right now?
A WM was just named DEI lead for our department. He keeps talking and writing messages in ways which prioritize the aggressor’s feelings, the aggressor’s safety, and “positive intent.” He also talks and writes about “How to not jump from kindergarten to college in one conversation when it involves DEI.” He never talks or writes about inclusion or making things safe for BIPOC. I just needed to type this . Thank you for reading.

Was laid off from D recently and have been interviewing primarily for strategy roles. Curious for any advice converting in final rounds. I have been through several at this point and not gotten the offer. Received very positive feedback from the teams about my performance but in each case they said it was very competitive and ended up going with someone with slightly more direct experience. Tough to go through several 6+ week multi round processes and not convert. Any help or advice appreciated!

Renters/homeowners/earthquake insurance ?: I’m reviewing my renewal policy docs for my renters and earthquake policies (im in Los Angeles). I’m 32F 🐠 single no kids. I own enough stuff to fill a 2 bedroom apartment if one room were an office/misc storage stuff. Currently am in a 4bd/4bath town house with 2 roommates. I’ve had these policies for 10+ years but truthfully haven’t read or paid much attention to limits or terms in the past (I also didn’t own much for most of that time).
My wife is pregnant. Do the general courtesies of telling your manager/work beginning of 3rd trimester still apply during covid/work from home? Her industry has been hit hard and her job has been doing furloughs and layoffs. We can get pretty far without telling due to WFH but don’t want to put her boss in a bad position either.
I was offered a CDP position at Accenture in the Chicago office and an Advisory Associate, Enterprise Solutions role at KPMG in New York. Any insight or opinions between the two companies and roles?

Do any of you lot worry about agism in the industry? I'm about 5yrs in and thinking about this more and more. Noticed thay most my colleagues, in mutliple agencies, were about my age with 5yrs give or take each way. Its obviously not a new industry, so either people were getting out of it by 35 or not many of them were getting hired past then. Been tellling myself ill learn to code one day to future proof but I've done fuck all so far. Anyone else planning for the future or am I being paranoid?
What are the best type of points to include when updating your resume from an account perspective?
I have been investing so far using my Fidelity account, and all my index funds are also by Fidelity. See most people on this bowl recommending Vanguard ETFs and Mutual Funds. Is there really much difference between Vanguard offerings vs. equivalent by Fidelity? Also asking because I have a significant amount of cash (<$100k) in my savings account that I want to invest over the next few months(some DCA) and am wondering if I need to open an account with Vanguard to avoid transaction fees. TIA!!
