I'm moving to Austin from NYC, with the Mrs. and 2 young kids. We are pretty set on Lake Travis ISD, but I'm curious about neighborhoods. Ideally, we are looking for areas made up of young families (preferably with cultural diversity), and things to do. We are looking around Lakeway & Bee Cave, but are certainly open to any reccos.
I hate that “this needs more diversity” is code for add more black people...🤦🏾♀️ 😥when will people realize that diversity is not just black and white!
Which firm takes inclusion the most serious?
New York. All talk and no action here when it comes to actual inclusion and not cosmetic efforts.

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!
Hey! I’m a self-contained teacher for grades K-2. This is my first year at the school I’m currently in, and apparently in the yearbook every year they have a class page solely for the handful of students in my classroom. They do this instead of putting my students in the yearbook page of the class they participate in for inclusion services. I feel like this is extremely wrong and violates some privacy laws. Do y’all have suggestions on how to bring this up with admin and the yearbook director?
Tryin to see which companies are gay-friendly. How’s your company giving importance to diversity and inclusion nowadays?

Any Chicago 🐠 happen to be looking for a new roommate in June? My lease is up this May and I’m looking to find a private bed/bath downtown for under $1200/mo. I’m 23F, don’t care abt gender of roomie!
My agency leadership is a Boys’ Club (...nothing new). Female leaders are not appreciated nor given any opportunity for advancement. Any agencies out there with a “no gender bias” leadership? 🤞🏻
Does anyone have a diversity focused recruiter that they like? I’m tired of the lip service that my current employer pays to diversity and inclusion but don’t want to jump right over to somewhere worse. Thoughts?

Hi! Welcome! What are your positions in an inclusion classroom? How’s it been going so far this year?
My best friend & I got pregnant around the same time. We didn’t know the other was even trying - just a happy surprise. But now I am going through a miscarriage and I don’t know how to feel. Lots of jealousy, but I’m still so happy for them. I knew it was a possibility (1/4 pregnancies end in miscarriage) but why did it have to be me? I don’t want to go to her gender reveal next week, it’s still just so painful but I feel like a horrible person for harboring these negative feelings towards her.
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
I absolutely hate that HR essentially forces me to attend diversity workshops on how to be a successful Hispanic. Efforts should be focused not on race but economic background... am I the only one?
My full time job (not SMU) is literally making me sick-spent time at the ER. One associate quit and another is out of full paid parental leave (must be nice, I’m not paid for doing double the work)…so I’m now expected to do the work of 3 associates. My supervisor isn’t exactly understanding, and I don’t know what to do. I’ve been searching for jobs, but it’s difficult since my background is diverse and not focused on one area of law. If I quit, how hard is it to find a new job?
I’ve been focused on my health and working out daily. I have been using old cheap leggings to run in and honestly they are losing their shape quickly. I’ve been looking to buy something else than old navy but hitting sticker shock. Here’s what I am looking for - high waste with side pocket leggings both in capri and 7/8. Also looking for a pair as we go into the winter months. Any recommendations would be welcomed.
If you were counseled out & unable to start new employment due to COVID-19 hiring freezes, would you qualify for unemployment? Received verbal offer initially for April, but keeps getting postponed
As an incoming BTA at Deloitte with an assigned home office as Atlanta. Would it be out of line for me to ask to switch offices before my start date (July)? Thinking of asking to move to Chicago.
I have strong political opinions, but keep those private at work with the exception of a few coworkers who I’ve known for years. I was offered a job at another local firm with a 25% raise and good benefits. I was doing my due diligence and researching this company and saw on their Facebook page that they sponsor multiple “Trump Won” and “Health and Freedom” rallies with the myPillow guy. Calling on Monday to turn it down. Why would a firm publicly support something so crazy?? On to the next one!
Had a serious post partum emotions discussion with my husband yesterday and cried a ton, being honest with how I was feeling. Wasn't sure if being honest and vulnerable was going to make a big change, but this morning he was the sweetest and I'm so glad I did 😊 he changed the baby's diaper and was super positive and helpful with our 3 year old! Having coffee now and so grateful

My manager is incapable of admitting when he’s wrong, to the point where he’s let me use the wrong formulas on client work because he couldn’t bring himself to admit he’d given me the wrong formula.
I’m frustrated as EY didn’t give me promotion as promised during hiring last year. Now I’ve an offer from non-big4 & about to put papers. Will EY negotiate either on salary or promotion?

Am I going crazy or does it make sense to lower your tax withholdings to have more cash at hand and pay off high interest credit card debt faster - with caveat of paying the extra taxes at tax time?
Since I'm an intern, I stay to myself and keep quiet. I've seen a lot of interns say whatever they're thinking even if it's not appropriate but others seem to be okay with it. Is my playing safe ok?

Anyone here work for any of the LBMC offices in Tennessee and willing to share their experience? I’ve been working for Deloitte for 5 years and considering applying to a regional firm in hopes of a lighter work load. But I know moving to a smaller firm doesn’t always mean less work. I am in tax so any insight into that specifically would be much appreciated!
Progesterone shots … I didn’t realize there were different oils to pick from. Anyone get good intel here? My insurance covers regular ones (sesame oil) but my Nurse said paying out of pocket for compounded ones is worth it (less pain in her opinion). 🤷🏻♀️
