If we didn’t have Trump in the oval office, would we be having conversations about diversity and inclusion on a National level? 🤔
Kind of aggravated with the example male leadership is setting right now with regard to parenting at CV. At least 5 men in leadership have had new babies in the last month and it seems like some have taken no time off or only the bare minimum. We have 12 weeks and should be encouraged to use it! If leadership isn’t taking advantage of their own policy, what does that say to the rest of the staff? In my perspective, this is likely further contributing to the gender disparity in CV leadership
Any advice in how to take advantage of a broader market short squeeze? Retail investor here but looking at Tesla with record $20B+ shorted whilst CEO hates shorters and everyone is holding in anticipation for earnings, potential S&P500 inclusion/ETF buyin and big announcements this year/amazing future
Hi all - Looking for recommendations on where to live in NYC. Few things Im looking for: - looking for diversity in general; lived in Boston suburbs and felt like it was way too homogeneous - we’re a korean family with young kids; really enjoy/appreciate korean culture/food/etc - looking for great public school district (perhaps most important) as kids are kindergarten age - SO works in Queens; I’ll likely work in Manhattan (to the extent commute matters) Thanks in advance for any thoughts!!
We have a team to promote diversity in our department...everyone on the team is straight and white. This really blows my mind.
Does anyone have book recommendations on gender bias/microagressions? For context: got into an argument with my dad bc he is moving and he said he doesn’t know about the mattress sizes “because that’s something a female who is into design and decoration would know” 🥴🤮 smh idk wtf a mattress has to do with design/decoration or women and this man needs education. thanks in advance
Is EY diversity a scam? Women promoted to partner but overall all white. In my office out West, many of us staff/seniors are Asian but despite there being Asian SMs, only white M/F get partner promote
Have you felt the need to come out to show advocacy and diversity in your classroom? Even if you’re totally comfortable in your personal life, do you feel this need to be out and be an ally?
My job let’s me choose between NYC and SF. I’m a young guy - from a dating perspective is one better than the other? I know people talk about the gender inequity in SF but my sense is during the pandemic a lot of guys have moved out of the Bay Area to cities like NYC, LA etc.

Inclusiveness vs diversity: I think internally, inclusiveness is extremely important, and advantageous to a firm. Recruiting efforts however, should be race/creed/color/protected party agnostic.

Thoughts on extra curricular - does being part of the diversity and inclusion group at my company help at all? I only have 1 extracurricular that I recently started at my church.
Hi! First time working with a larger company - suggestions on handling pronouns at work? I’ve worked with smaller agencies where it was easier to bring up. Now I’m on a larger team, talking to/referencing people I’ve never met. I’m less concerned about my own pronouns and more concerned about how to make sure I’m using the correct pronouns for the people I work with. I’ve been structuring sentences to avoid gender specific pronouns but would love to hear suggestions. Thanks!
When agencies post pics of their white staff, and boasts that they’re all about diversity, I call BS. A diverse house doesn’t mean the IT person or the receptionist- unless they’re also creatives!:)
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!

How soon is too soon to leave? I started my first real gig in advertising as a junior at a small agency about six months ago. However, after settling in, I’m realizing the account they have me primarily working is not interested in making good work, and prob not anytime in the near future. I’m being interviewed for a mid-level position at a bigger, better agency, but don’t want to cut bait unless it’s the right move. What should I do??
Folks that file H1B COE with EY recently, how long did it take from submitting to USCIS until the receipt notice got updated to the portal? And how long until you got the online approval notice? I know there have been a few questions like this but trying to see what the process has been like most recently. Thanks EY

Does anyone here have experience with orthodontist insurance? Thinking of getting the old smile fixed up before I get married in April 2022 via invisaline but I don’t have ortho covered w my dental. Just had the consultation and they’re telling me it will be $5,900 out of pocket. I can afford to do it, but with the wedding coming up I’m really trying to be smart about $$$. Wondering if anyone knows if there’s a way to save on this/obtain insurance some other way?
