Black Consultants; I’m trying to assess how much “diversity” has actually been respected: How visible have your roles/work been? Have you been promoted? What service line are you in? Have you had AERT/Performance Reviews statused in retaliation? Have you been pressured to participate in after work activities that compromise your religion, personal, mental health,etc. ?

I'm not sure if you're talking about company diversity programs (affinity groups) or development of diverse pipelines. In relation to the affinity group piece, my diversity support worked against me when discussing promotion. I was basically given a pat on the back and a simple "that's great." At the end of the day, it didn't hold any weight. They didn't see a direct correlation to the bottom line. In fact, they seemed to question how I had time to do my regular job and support diversity efforts.

^ this right here. I’ve carried the diversity torch for years and honestly got tired of carrying it for little ZERO return. Project leadership knew of me but weren’t picking me for promotion, bonuses, or any kind of recognition. I wonder if people will get more recognition for diversity work this year since it’s the “in thing” to do. In my career, I’ve always been slotted in roles where the work was repetitive and didn’t offer many opportunities to lead or strategize. I stay away from PMO roles and PRDs where you are “owning a deck” in which you just make updates on the fly. If I don’t hear a dollar amount attached to the work, it’s not worth my time.

Hi all, I realize this isn’t a medical community but would still appreciate insights. I started Trintillix for anxiety / depression but ultimately insurance wouldn’t cover it.

I have a history of eating disorders so really won’t take anything that might make you gain weight. Realize this is a tall order, but TIA.

Okay for the last time - the fact that Cities tend to have higher crime (which has been declining over the years ) is a function of what cities are and what they attract - big populations (people moving here for opportunities), social/economic variations resulting in higher possibilities of crime.
