VERY little diversity across the new leadership slate.

like

My same thought as they went through each of those leadership slides. The fact that the DEI role was still TBD speaks volumes about that priority.

Fair point. I think the fact that there was a considerable lack of diversity in both the leadership that presented as well in the slides with the new leadership struck me. With such an emphasis this whole year on addressing biases and increasing diversity at all levels, it feels like there wasn’t much of a follow through. I get they want the right person, but there is tons of talent out there.

Hi ladies. I need some advice. I'm currently out on maternity leave, to return in about a month. I was just informed my male counterpart in my department will be getting a promotion by our new boss. This is really a slap in the face considering I've been trying to fight for equal pay since last year when I found out another (former) male counterpart of mine was making 40k more than me. What would you do in my situation? Demand to know why I wasn't considered? Leave?

Hi all - I’m working as a Jr AE at a remote agency. Before full-time at this agency, I interned there for 2 years and often did pro-bono work. I love my company so much, but I often feel stuck when it comes to salary and growth. The salary is minimum wage and every time I ask about a raise they agree I need one but never get around to it. Today, I was offered a position at another agency as a remote AE with more than double my current salary. I didn’t seek this job out but don’t know what to do.

I have been working in HR since 2004. I have a bachelor's degree but it is not in HR, it's in a medical/technical field.

What extra skills do you think your HR degree gives you that you wouldn't have without the degree?

I have a final round interview for a non-investment role at a hedge fund in the NYC area. I was told I would be discussing comp with the founder of the fund. What kind of compensation can I expect going into the conversation? The firm has about 35 employees and $15bn AUM. Role is business development/client service associate and this would be my first full time role. I just want to have a general idea of what comp could/should be so I feel prepared to discuss
