Just got an invitation for a female network at my company. Am I the only one who does not fully agree with professional networks at work only based on gender? And if you like these kind of networks can you maybe explain why? I am trying to get a more nuanced view on this
Ladies, what are some of the best diversity and inclusion events you’ve attended/organized at your workplace?
Currently in a play on ATOS that might be interesting for some. It’s a biotech with its primary drug being endoxifen aimed at treatment for breast cancer. Company has no debt and $138M in cash. It’s been announced to be included in the Russell 2K so there will be a predictable movement of ETF inclusion close to June 25. It also still has a high short interest so potentially for shorts to be blown out. I’m currently in 25k shares @ 3.35 holding into the 25th. My price target is $20.

Which firms have the best Asian diversity employee groups and partner representation? Eg BCG Asian diversity network
How is the diversity in leadership, employees, etc… at the other consulting firms? I am at Deloitte (USDC) in FL and it’s primarily Indians.
This is not to start a gender war but : She literally said “George would want us to forgive”.
I have social anxiety and I feel like I am being punished because of that. I am not being promoted and was told to work on confidence even though my technical performance was outstanding. I wished I can just "work on my confidence" and boom. But it's not gonna happen like that. Diversity has been the hot topic these days. Why do we view shy people, introverts, socially anxious people as less capable? Should I accept that PA is not for me or can I do something to contribute?
The recent uproar on not enough diversity in Cannes jury is a similar outcry to the movie Dunkirk not featuring the Indian soldiers. Give it a break! We need “world class juries” not “world juries”.
When it comes to recruiting, is it good for the industry when the first word out of HR is "diversity" and not "talent?"
Thoughts on ad agency diversity data, now that it’s being released? “Across the entire (Havas) organization in the U.S., 6.11% of employees are Black, 10.8% are Hispanic or Latino and 9.66% are Asian.”
Since the last post focused more on the source then the content here is a more neutral source. It also highlights the fact the mayor lies in her statements about the diversity of the press corps.
What are the drawbacks of filing a second I485? For context I’m ROW and filed an EB I485 in May last year (Texas service center so still waiting). I am now eligible to file I485 under the diversity lottery program, that would be faster and no need to stay with my employer after GC
I just watched the KPMG boss video and honestly I feel it can be interpreted in different ways. You can tell when a person says something to intentionally hurt you and when they can’t just fathom the implications based on how people interpret it. As we learn to work in an increasingly diversity focused environment I pray there’s room for forgiveness. Mind you I am a person of color. I believe in second chances and I don’t think he should have lost his job. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9253165/KPMG-boss-QUITS-video-showed-telling-paid-staff-lucky.html
I recently got married and started talking to my sister in law more often. She addresses me as “Bro” EVERY SINGLE TIME. She knows I identify as female. I absolutely hate because it’s a sign of deeply ingrained patriarchy and I also find it disrespectful. I never address anyone as bro, dude, man etc because I honestly find it very disrespectful. I would rather be addressed by my name. How can I handle this situation? We are still forming a reltnship & don’t want to hurt that process. I’m Indian.
Wow... so diverse. Really shows their commitment to diversity and inclusion... https://www.adweek.com/agencies/publicis-groupe-reorganizes-media-leadership-team/

Thinking about getting into the market but it’s too risky since the premium is high and the fundamentals are murky. A lesson that I learned is that patience is needed in this environment.
Finally on a local project! ...but have to pay for parking. Definitely thought that was something we could expense at all client sites regardless of location 🤦♀️
Maybe it’s burnout from a job where all the cool work benefits you could brag to your friends about are gone bc you wfh now and don’t have access to your cool office and now you work around the clock because there’s no separation between home and work and your agency has done next to nothing to help with that balance and you’ve billed more hours per week than you ever had and now your friends and family are starting to comment on your workload, health, and demeanor. Maybe it’s Maybelline ✨
Received an offer in industry at the top of the range I mentioned during phone screen. (I know…1st rule: never say a number first.) My first time being in salary negotiations. Is it okay to negotiate for more base? I will be relocating to a higher cost of living city so thinking of asking for increase in base/relo bonus based on that. Thoughts?
What’s better being at a small consulting firm working with people you like and solid culture but lower pay. Or going to a bigger firm (Accenture, Big Four, etc.) with more competitive higher pay?

Strategy I’ve been running courtesy of BC: long put on Tesla 5/15, long call weeklies at lows to delta hedge, sell at high and simultaneously avg down long puts cuz it’s about to blow anytime
Art director presents idea we were both tasked to do. The entire concept is mostly my idea, and has a key element that she did not like and almost refused to add. I basically pushed her to add it. It’s that part that the client actually loved, and when the meeting ended, everyone thanked her and congratulated her, and she said “thanks”without giving me a mention. Even our cd and account folks. Should i let it go?
When I was interviewed I was told I would need to make a choice between doing this job right or having a life. Were any of the tips/warning signs you were given accurate?
Someone created this site to share salary information. Would be cool to see some more forensic postings: http://www.big4transparency.com

My base location is in one state and I am staying in a different state because of my family. Does this create a problem during H1B extensions or during tax filings?
Any examples of a variable compensation model for VP Corp Dev (head of corp dev, a sweating to only CEO) of 1B rev company? Like what percentage of the deal should I ask for in addition to 250K salary and undetermined amt of equity? i.e., 3% on deals up to $1M, 1% on deals up to $10M etc.
