I feel, as one of 6 black copywriters in advertising, I should be excluded from all mandatory diversity training. Am I wrong?
Having a kid. Is it still ok to bring them up with gender stereotypes? I mean, clearly I want them to do any job they aspire to, but will I be a bad parent if I dress the girl up in pink and boy blue?
I’m getting a bit tired of rotating between “hey all/folks/team”, what are some other gender neutral replacements for “hey guys”?
Is there a gender pay gap in accounting? At least in public I feel like that'd be hard to see, with salaries pretty standardized for LoS and location.
🐠 who live or have lived in Chicago - how was your experience when it came to friendliness, diversity/racism, and access to Asian foods and grocery stores? I’m considering relocating to the South loop neighborhood - single person in their 30s, not interested in suburbia life
Really frustrated with the housing situation in and near Seattle area (with good schools) - thinking of moving , which city to move to - good schools, good outdoors, diversity?
Preaching diversity is lip service until it's reflected in equal pay. Sad to hear they're no longer appearing in the Bon Appetit videos. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.today.com/today/amp/tdna188750
“The irony, says one diversity and inclusion chief within a holding company agency, is that the goal of both organizations was to make the ad industry a more inclusive place, but they were actually not inclusive of all points of view.”
I’m annoyed that a white woman was selected as the leader of the newly created Black Action Council. I have no doubt that her credentials qualify her, but in an age when firms are saying they can’t get their diversity numbers up, they feel a white woman is best suited to lead a Black Action Council?
Has anyone else's firms essentially dropped their DEI programming? After last summer, we had a lot of virtual meetings with speakers and awareness weeks for various affinity groups. The diversity committee also had meetings planned. The awareness weeks scheduled for 2021 summer, fall, and winter never happened, and the diversity committee meetings keep getting canceled and never rescheduled.
Hello! I am looking for some perspective. Those who have been in an arranged marriage - 1. What qualities did you seek in a partner? 2. How long did it take for you to decide that your partner was the right one when you first started talking to them (how frequently did you meet them)? 3. How important was your family's opinion? 4. Are you happy with your decision right now? Please provide your gender and experience. FYI - I am a little skeptical about arranged marriages, but I have seen it work
Hi fishes,Can Employer PF is part of CTC ?I guess no where I have seen the employer PF inclusion in ctc breakup like below. Also why they are deducting Employee PF contribution from the ctc and calculating net salary? Is this correct approach?
A senior leader at my company has his company picture as one of him with his son. I’m curious… do you think moms who might use a similar photo would be judged more negatively (ie perceived to be more family oriented / less invested in her work) or do you think this perception is impacted by seniority (a senior leader posting something like this —> positive impression vs a more junior person —> negative impression regardless of gender)… or both? Or is this just not a thing at all?
All this stuff with Kapernick and taking a knee and all that has got me wondering if we could participate in "corporate disobedience" to protest our agencies' lack of diversity.
Thoughts on showing (I) cleavage and (II) shoulders at work? For ladies although everyone please weigh in. On that note isn’t it curious how different the standards are based on one’s gender identity?
Diversity & Inclusiveness is hollow talk. If you are an Indian, Chinese or Black your chances of being a PP are pretty limited- ED is more feasible. Agree?
My manager bullied me to the point that I had to start a workplace violence case with the ethics department and HR. Yesterday I received an invitation from her to the Women’s Diversity event. Lol.
I got a job offer at Apple and I’m so conflicted. I nor my boyfriend are just thrilled to live in California, but this opportunity is incredible. He is not willing to move with me or be long distance so I’d be in a position to where this could not only impact my relationship but I could also miss out on a job opportunity of a lifetime. Any advice? I am feeling like I’m picking between my career and relationship. It sucks. For context, we’ve been together 2 years and live together.
Going to b school not sponsored by Deloitte. Does that mean no bonus because I need to leave by August? :-(
Do people get held back for promotion if their AOS is pending in the middle of promotion time?
Every other post on this bowl: “Should I Roth my 401k or would it be better to backdoor into an FSA retirement fund? I have a net worth of $1M btw. None inherited it’s all from two years working Door Dash in Wichita Falls.”
KPMG ups 401(k) match to 8%, from 6%, the WSJ reports. (This news is a few months old.) Article also slips in this…that the bump occurred beginning Jan. 1, “after the firm froze its pension plan on Dec 31”. Was that an employee pension freeze, or a partner pension freeze, or both?
I am looking for a part time wfh job for Mon Tue and Wed. kindly give ur suggestions !!!
Amex platinum with 150k welcome vs Hilton aspire with 200k welcome? Plat is 695+175 and aspire is 450+0 for second card. The fine hotels and resorts is sort of a difference for the platinum. Is it worth it?
Why is my status doesn't apply for my kid if he/she travels without me all by himself? 😤😡 this is stupid.
Who in HR do I contact to complain about a hostile work environment after hearing my husband and teenager shouting at each other? WFH not always the best
Well that was uneventful Holding UVXY strong, if it gets crushed I’m holding it as a covid play and doubling down on linger expiries
Manager told me to look/dress “more like a creative” in front of the client (i.e. more wacky, I’m a simple gal).... A. Is this even appropriate? B. Is appearing eclectic even necessary?
Suggestions for a birthday gift for myself? My boyfriend has been asking for weeks & I keep saying nothing but he is not having it. I have a comfortable life & can’t think of anything other than a nice night out, which is already common in our relationship. I suggested a nice set of cookware because I enjoy cooking on our nights in but he jokes it’s a little too domestic. An engagement is already in the works so jewelry seems silly & I WFH so even high end shoes/bags can wait. Thoughts?
I have a $60k sign on bonus coming in, after tax around $42k. I’ve never had this amount of money before and want to spend it wisely and maybe invest… what would you recommend? I was thinking of buying a home but the buying market is so bad right now in my city (Dallas, TX)… any and all recommendations welcome!
Has anyone encountered extra person charges ($80-100) to put 3 people in a double room at a Marriott? Any way to avoid these?

In case you never got to see the New York Times article about air quality in classrooms, I’m posting it here for you. It makes some very important points about creating the safest possible environment for students and teachers. 1. Open windows if it all possible 2. Place air purifier centrally 3. Don’t place fans in a way where the air is pointed at people Have a great year and keep yourself and your students safe! https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/02/26/science/reopen-schools-safety-ventilation.html ￼￼￼￼￼
