Major crush. She is brilliant: intelligent, insightful, confident, kind, a champion of diversity, funny. But, id never overstep our workplace boundaries by extending an invite to drinks. Sighhh.
It blew my mind to learn about compulsory heterosexuality and gender performativity. It’s weird because even years later of being aware of these concepts, I find myself having to unlearn things that were buried deep inside me without even realizing. It’s hard but it’s worth it.
Curious what everyone’s caseloads look like in their district if you are a resource room teacher. Do you have 504’s and IEP’s on your caseload?
Parents are deciding between moving to WVirginia vs Virginia for retirement to be closer to us based in fairfax, va(ideally be at 1 hour driving distance). They currently in the mid west but WVirginia appeals to them because of low taxes, low cost of living. We are also poc so appreciate some diversity. What are some areas you would recommend both in Va and WV? What else should they consider prior to house hunting? Dad likes to garden/farm as well so looking for homes with large backyards. Tia!
My work is highly focused on inclusion and today, while driving through the park, I felt bad for laughing at a group of larpers. They have nerf combat gear, too. I tried hard not to be insensitive to them being their true selves but i laughed … hard! And now I feel bad for laughing at them.
Given how abysmal diversity is in senior leadership, what happened to the generation of black professionals who should be old enough/at the stage of being senior partners at our firms? Where are they professionally and what work did they do instead?
Do you think there is still a huge gap in skills for women in Tech despite all the pushing to reduce the gender gap? why is that?
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.
Were you out at work or with your family first? Would also love to hear if it was your gender or your sexuality (or both) too.
President Trump recently signed an executive order banning US service members and federal contractors teaching certain components of diversity training. I’m wondering from those that manage in organizations affected what sort of ripple is this having. Do people anticipate a ripple effect on private businesses? With so many focusing on DE&I as of late, this seems like a big shock to the system.
DMA: Do they even acknowledge your messages? If so, what’s your gender/ethnicity? I’m a fan, but wonder if they’re selective bc of sheer volume, or I’ve been ignored bc I’m not their peeps (white/M)😔
I don't have a very technical background (or cloud background at all tbh) but was given an offer as a Customer Engineer for google cloud. I'm not sure if this is due to diversity hiring (woman and a minority here), I've heard google cloud is trying to up diversity hiring a lot. I want to take the offer but not sure if I'm setting myself up for failure due to not having a strong tech background. Any advice?
🐳🐬🐡🐟🐠 I love diversity😊
Can anyone speak on the diversity at Alverez & Marsal? Thinking about joining but it seems very homogeneous which I guess isn't too different from other consulting firms.
Just got a new job and feeling like the “diversity hire.” Everyone else is white or Indian and in the town halls they keep talking about upping Diversity and Inclusion targets to include more Female and Black/Latino individuals.
Thoughts on ad agency diversity data, now that it’s being released? “Across the entire (Havas) organization in the U.S., 6.11% of employees are Black, 10.8% are Hispanic or Latino and 9.66% are Asian.”
Does anyone feel like the 'token' diversity person in a room/meeting and how do you deal with it?

If somebody were to put in their 2 week notice prior to the Holiday shutdown, would you get paid for the holidays or would they terminate your employment once you log off for break?
When is the earliest you’d suggest taking a pregnancy test? Took one and got a negative result 9 days post ovulation but have read you should wait at least 10-12 days post ovulation? If so - why do tests claim “6 days before missed period?” Tryna have a pre-busy season baby problems 😂! Thanks in advance!

Apparently joining the mile high club means you get met by police when you land... https://www.dallasnews.com/business/southwest-airlines/2017/08/20/couple-accused-sex-southwest-plane-control-las-vegas-airport-spokesman-says
I studied SCM in college but I’ve been working through tech implementations on the ptp side for about 4 years now - it’s been all indirect client work though and no supply chain. How tough is it to pivot to more process and supply chain based strategy projects - do I need to get my mba. At a smaller firm now and feel like I’d have to jump to an Accenture to actually have the ability to do that kind of work (logistics and trade optimization, planning, manufacturing)

Looking for advice: does part time MBA opens the same doors as full time? I work in DC area and on a visa. Don't think I can work full time and study full time as well. Thinking of applying next year, but let's see.
Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
So i was seeing the post around Deloitte USI work life balance, culture, hikes and bonuses were comparing to others.
