Curious your thoughts on teaching gender at a 2nd grade level. 😬🤷🏻♀️ Personally, not okay with this. It’s hitting NJ in the fall of 2022, California typically follows then WA/OR.
Couple great women in our industry right there. Ladies, have you ever been told/made to feel you’re “not as funny” as the guys? https://musebycl.io/musings/its-2019-are-we-falling-back-gender-cliches
I have a coworker who constantly misgenders me. Sometimes they apologize and say my proper gender if we're with others, but in private they call me "dude". Should I complain to HR?
I know most companies are focusing on diversity & I see improving numbers in my company, but I'm still the only minority on my team. A team of 7. So I still feel isolate. Anyone else in the same boat?
How gender diverse is your recruitment pipeline? Have been observing a year-on-year decline in female candidates as a % of total candidates. Recent few years have been in the low to mid 30s. Interested to see how other firms are going.
I’ve been asked to assist on a few very visible and very high stakes account meetings. The thing is, I’m no where near the most senior, but I am one of the only women. I’m in my head that I’ve only been asked as a ‘token’ so the project doesn’t look bad for being so male-heavy.
How have other people 1) assessed if they were being tokenized, 2) gotten out of their own heads about it, &/or 3) found meaningful resolutions that promotes gender equity?
A tip on how to be a better people person and inclusive leader in your team. Self-awareness is key. Each day ask yourself, did I treat someone differently from others? Did I give preferential treatment to someone because I felt more comfortable with them? Did I feel more comfortable with them because we shared some similar characteristics like race, gender, sexual orientation, socio-cultural background, political leaning, etc? At the time I acted that way what was I thinking? Our biases often...
How does Bain & Company do with diversity?
Is there a better city than the A in terms of diversity, cost of living, weather, airport, and overall stuff to do (nightlife, outdoors)?
Some contenders (although doesn’t fit every category) include Dallas, Houston, Austin, Philly, Chicago, NOLA, some FL cities, Seattle, Denver, & Phoenix in my opinion
Fellow male consultants, do you ever feel like female bosses treat you differently? I understand my female colleagues have a unique set of challenges but it feels like sometimes they displace that frustration/anger on me simply for being a man. I welcome any insight on this!
Got some dress shirts for Xmas that are not standard white or blue. Not a fan of diversity in my shirt color. Does anyone rock dress shirtst that aren't white or blue regularly?
Something I’m struggling with as it relates to the rise of the “Karens”. I get it, Karens suck and are very real but why is it that women always have to deal with this kind of stereotype? Men, especially Trumpian white men, are just as bad about their own privilege. Maybe they handle it differently or maybe people are less inclined to record them? I don’t know. But somehow it feels like yet another divide between women. Just wish we could make it less about gender and more about privilege.
DeSean Jackson, embarrassed by his unfortunate misquote, has vowed to visit the Third Reich Museum and Gift Shop to increase his knowledge of the actual words of the Fuhrer. Celebrity Holocaust denier Mel Gibson has offered to send DeSean a personally autographed copy of Mein Kampf to foster diversity and inclusion. According to Gibson, “It is the responsibility of every athlete to accurately advocate the policy positions of the Furher and DeSean needs to be accountable for his mistakes”.
Serious sexuality/gender question: can someone be considered straight AND queer? Love to hear from some LGBTQ folk on this. Thanks!
Agency said they've officially abolished the gender pay gap. The following week I ask my male copywriter what he earns. Turns out he earns a significant amount more than I do. Nice!
Hi everyone! AS2 here—
I need some advice about diversity and inclusion here at Deloitte. I’m having a hard time adjusting to my current team being that I work with all men and I am the only minority on the team. I’ve tried to connect more with my senior, but he talks to me like I’m stupid or something and I cannot stand it. Every time I ask them a question or for more guidance, the senior acts like they don’t understand. However, he doesn’t have an issue assisting the AS1 on the team. Cont ..
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.
If a memo like the Google diversity memo leaked by one of our company's (written by one of our employees about our firms), do you think that we would have fired them? I have a feeling that we wouldn't
