What's with these long intense discussions on race and gender? I come here to complain about how my SPG welcome chocolates were melted and to collectively shit on KPMG... not for this! 😁
Poll - how many of you are in an interracial relationship/marriage? Age, gender, ethnicity? Again this is not to offend, I am just curious :). Happy to delete the post if anyone feels offended
My Facebook marketer is telling me we can’t use “you, your, you’re Bc thats targeting people based on their attributes, meaning race or gender. Anyone else heard this?!? It means major rewrites if so
Congratulations to new Deloitte US SAP PPMD promotions. Let’s do D&I review: 15 in total, out of which 3 principals (3 males), 12 MDs (10 males, only 1 AA). Let’s not talk about diversity, let’s do something about diversity. Enough of rhetoric.
Has anyone seen firms hold successful, well-received diversity/cultural events? Especially firms with low diversity numbers but an interest in increasing awareness and education without patronizing.
Boston fish, relatively new to to the area, what’s a good town to raise a family ? Currently renting a 2BR townhouse in Charlestown that is bursting at the seams with 2 kids and WFH . Looking for good school district, some diversity and culture, and enough backyard space to put up a swing set, grill etc. Have been looking at Newton and Lexington but it’s hard to find anything decent there without feeling robbed.
What matters to you the most?
I will appreciate if you include your age and gender in the reply.
What are some topics to discuss until others join the call to kill the silence? Weather is boring; anything that is gender neutral would help
How do we let women get fair opportunities to the top when women bosses themselves allow junior female coworkers to be exploited for their gender to please clients?
I’ve been hanging with a coworker and their significant other a lot lately and I’m starting to get a crush on my coworker’s partner...and I think it might be mutual bc there’s a slight sensual tension whenever it’s just the two of us talking
I left out gender on purpose just in case my coworker is on here lmao
SF vs NYC? Haven’t been to SF but have been to NYC a lot and love the diversity. Have friends in NYC but none in SF. New job has both locations as a possibility, but national travel required.
My white, male ECD asking my all white, all male, highly privileged department to try and think of proactive ideas about diversity for the next award season 🤮
Grim that they see diversity as not much more than a hot trend to jump on to win metal.
If you feel the need to name a woman's gender in your complaint about her, ask yourself how many times you've explicitly complained about bad "male managers." If you haven't, maybe think about why?
Agency has a Moms club. Cool - seems like a great support group. Have a bunch of new dads, so we start a Dad's club. Today HR shut us down for not being "gender inclusive". Moms-only club still on. 😐
The diversity in our production/motion graphics studio short list is looking pretty pathetic. Any resources/reccos of BIPOC-owned/led studios I can add to the list? Would love to start casting a wider net when searching for talent. Thanks!
I have been realizing diversity in industry is problematic in unexpected and unexpected ways as I am being recruiting. It has forced me to actually talk about diversity in interviews and if they don’t have it, I move on. For example:
- an internal strategy team that was 70% males that were 40+
- a corp development team that was 8/10 female
- a US company strategy team that had no US born and educated team members
- a 90% Asian male tech start up
- a marketing management team with no one of color
EY Intern Poll Results says very few incoming folks care about Salary and Diversity when choosing a company. Is this really true? https://qz.com/1077907/only-2-of-the-interns-at-ey-say-diversity-is-a-key-factor-in-choosing-an-employer/
thoughts on a white person saying they support diversity, but thinks a room still needs white people to be diverse? *imagine this was said in a very condescending tone*
Ladies I’m trying to put together a list of things/experiences to get myself when I get the manager milestone bonus in April. Can you help me out with few items?
My AP goin’ psycho, my Rollie goin’ brazy...
Have you tried flexible seating? What are your favorite pieces? What are your least favorite?
Live in a 3 story walk up and the downstairs neighbors are an upper 20s couple who are renting. My gf and I can hear them fighting decently often and this morning was really loud. Screaming match at like 8:30am and could hear her crying after. Doesn’t sound like anything physical from what we can make out
Anything we should do or say? Or just leave it be?
My mother in law insisted that I call her mom...not quite conformable with that. How do you guys call your MIL?
Okay who else has ke$ha's Woman on repeat 😍💯
Perhaps I’ve drank the koolaid for too long but I truly think consulting teaches the fundamentals of learning how to work with people and how to improve (via feedback loops and constant discussions).
Industry friends complain that there’s no progress for them but they’ve never once asked their team how they can improve nor provided constructive feedback.
Looking for +ve feedback. I'm not able to clear 2nd or 3rd round of interviews. I think my interview resp more towards what I want (bit Sr) than what they are looking for (1or2 level Jr).Suggestions?
What’s the apartment renting situation look like between November-December? Low/average/high prices? What about availability?

Anyone else noticed that some professionals are so busy with their work that they begin to lack self-awareness or mindfulness?
Anyone know anything about the CGP group at EY?
What are the best things you like about the Apple Watch. Wondering if it’s worth the price.
Bose QC20s are on sale. Should I go for it if I'm looking for noise canceling headphones that don't go over the ear? Or are there better out there?
Anyone have any recommendations on cities to temporarily move to while working remote? Living at home and over it and would like to switch up my environment for a month or two.
Yesterday, I submitted an application for a position with Lewis Brisbois. Just received an email from a partner wanting "a 5 minute chat over the phone." Wth is this? Should I take this seriously? Is this a prelim interview? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
