So. Much. Diversity.
I’m interested in switching to diversity consulting or something tied to inclusion work. Any insight into what companies/types of roles I should be researching?
Is there a woman out there who is bothered by someone addressing a group as “”you guys.” Your opinion is the one that matters.
My company did an analysis of the diversity of our outside counsel based on hours billed and spend. Women billed more than half the hours but were far less than half the spend 😒
How are your “support functions” (HR, marketing, finance, etc) treated? We are second class citizens, with less: training, growth opportunities, inclusion in firm leadership calls/gatherings, etc.
Best consulting firms for real inclusion?
Tired/disgusted about all the gender discrimination and sexual harassment we face at work ? Me too. Post about your experiences on www.hesaidwhaaat.com
Thought: When you see diversity of skin color as the most critical factor you miss out of diversity of experience and ideas. Quite often these overlap, but there are a lot of people out there like JD Vance who come from poor white roots, but because of their skin color they’re assumed to have some magical privilege bestowed upon them by society. Likewise, wealthy people of color are lumped in with their less affluent counterparts. We’re so quick to look at skin color and see the sum (cont’d)
What's the worst case of marital infidelity you've witnessed at your firm? Offender's gender and level within the firm, + how you/others who knew reacted and handled it?
￼I am currently unemployed but I am very curious about everyone’s company signature having she/her or he/him or they displayed. Are companies forcing people to write the pronouns you need to choose? I honestly never understood why somebody that wasn’t in the LGBTQ community would ￼specify￼￼, and I know people are doing it to show support but if I started working again I don’t think I would want to put that in my signature. It seems political. What are your thoughts? ￼

Hello all! Can a New York registered attorney file a diversity jurisdiction lawsuit in MA federal court while residing outside the US, and not running an office in NY? Any thoughts? Thanks.
Why does everyone preach DEI but fail to recognize that people also grow up in different backgrounds and socioeconomic classes? Increasing diversity in these elite firms also means that you will be at team dinners with people who didn’t grow up with well off parents and experiences living in the finer things in life or enjoying the same things outside of work - but not all teams are cognizant of that in their social conversations and can unintentionally make those ppl feel different. End rant.
PwC diversity training for managers+ focused on staffing teams by picking diverse gender,race,etc. Equality of outcome vs equality of opportunity is not discussed. Equity, not equality, is the mandate
Accenture, BCG, Deloitte & E&Y all signed up to be in the consortium for eliminating the gender pay gap. All the sudden I'm feeling the urge to switch firms!
After reading many annual reports, I am really getting tired of the fact that female management board members are always HR. Often that’s the only female member. Gender equality has long way to go

My ultimate future goal is to work in vulnerability management or penetration testing. Is it possible to switch to one of these roles coming from a cyber strategy background if I learn the scanning tools, linux, networking, etc in my own time? Or will nobody take a chance on me once I’m 5 years into my career? Or will they but my salary will go down significantly as I’ll kind of be a newbie again?
Just wanted to say I’m in your beautiful city on vacation right now and have met the nicest people! Everyone has been so friendly and helpful with recommendations on where to go. That’s not always the case with places I have been to before. Anyways, loving it here and all the great people that live here! Shout out to y’all!!!
Someone want to explain how everyone in consulting can be this duped... we accept promotions for more responsibilities without knowledge of compensation... that literally doesn’t happen anywhere else. How dumb are we? Ps. I don’t count myself, I’ve never taken a promotion without jumping firms :) though plan on doing it next year - as SM

ACN 🐟 Is there a reason why the benefits package is hush hush? I'd like to compare my current package to the one ACN offers and I was told by the recruiter that they can't give it to me. I'm not asking for cost, just what's covered. Which honestly, not even saying how much it'll cost you is weird, too.
