Where do you draw the line between sexism and being old-fashioned? I’m a young female on a mostly male defense project and one of the older men always opens car doors for me, refuses to let me hold a door or drive anywhere, and seems to strongly believe in traditional gender roles in his own family. I believe he thinks this is being respectful, but it rubs me the wrong way.
Any Latinos feeling left out of all this diversity buzz? Seems we are always invisible :/
I don’t get these gender reveal parties. If it’s a boy they are happy, if it’s a girl they are happy. Just get a party and be happy ... lol
Lol. Glad to see DE&I leadership at Disney is so diverse. https://www.cbr.com/disney-diversity-councils-bob-chapek-bob-iger/
Is it just me or does anyone else find the Microsoft spot with Katie (who by all means deserves it) hypocritical, after the way the 49er’s really showed what they think of diversity w/ Kaepernick?
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
Quite disappointed that Bain ignored “LGBT” term and instead referred it as “special group” during a Greater China pre-MBA info session, when asked whether Bain has LGBT diversity program. Bain changed its logo into Pride on LinkedIn but can’t recognize LGBT? I know it’s China, but expect Bain to be more supportive across the firm globally.

When it comes to recruiting, is it good for the industry when the first word out of HR is "diversity" and not "talent?"
Can anyone speak on the work culture at 160over90 (NYC) in recent times? Diversity? Work that junior creatives get to do? & Working with the team for briefs in general? Long winded but anything helps! 160over90
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 😒
I just landed my dream job at a big tech company but I think I might have benefited from affirmative action. The recruiter mentioned how I would add diversity to the leadership team of the product...

@ legacy strategy PPEDs - in light of our supposed commitment to diversity and inclusion, what is the plan for the ED who is widely known for making openly racist and misogynistic comments in the office and on social media?
￼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? ￼

Had a great conversation with the hiring manager for a job I would love … or so at least I thought. No word in 4 weeks. FML.
Hey everyone! I have been working at a small firm for 10 years. Specifically, work comp, PI, and social security. I often feel like I don't get enough money for everything I do. Anyone else feel this way? I do paralegal work, legal assistant work, legal billing, accounts receivable, etc. for three Attorney's. We do Claimant work and Defense.
Has anyone ever slept in their home office/ their firm's office in another city? (for the entire night not just 10 minutes)
If you say something bad about someone applying for a job, that’s wrong. Unless they were blatantly insane or harmful. Let people try to find happiness. Happened to my friend and it’s sad.
At a former company, they let you expense $20 for working 10+ hours in a day, but you could never use it because it would always be rejected. Recently started at a new firm, and I had a rough week last week (two 14+ hour days). New firm has a similar policy, so I asked. Was told not to submit the $20 reimbursements. Just as I was about to get frustrated, he told me I should get dinner for my wife and me. Only rule was to keep it under $100. Don't like working 14 hour days, but this was nice.

Per diem dinner allowance for Orlando at KPMG seems low at $33. That city has become much more expensive especially since it’s essentially a resort town. What do other firms allow?

Veteran | MBA candidate looking to pivot into D&I strategy. Thoughts on general HR vs diversity recruiting?
In a meeting I said, “creatives can be savages sometime.” because of their unruly behavior towards internal teams, pushing deadlines, or throwing tantrums. I was called out and chastised by a junior creative for using the word “savages” in an unacceptable manner because the word is slur to non-whites in a zoom meeting. I am a BIPOC creative. Am I the asshole?
