IMO all the lip service to D&I was to make D&I consulting a new service offering for clients.

Wait. Which firm does that? This is hideous.

It takes time. Honestly, many people are just saying things without meaning it, but there are those that are genuinely trying to make things better. It will take a while and lots of effort to bring about change in such a large organization.

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 think you should teach your kid to actively manage their time by giving them access to the Xbox all week, then as punishment for not getting their school work or chores done (not properly managing their time), then you take the xbox away for a little bit as punishment. Your child will learn to use the Xbox as a reward for getting all their other work done. Taking away the Xbox during a set time as a rule doesn't teach your kid anything.

Am I overreacting in this scenario? My aunt passed away this week. The entire extended family is vaccinated and coming together this weekend for her memorial gathering & funeral. My older sister flew in from NYC and didn’t tell anyone that she had a fever the past few days. She has not been tested for Covid, and exposed my father who picked her up from the airport. He is making her get a Covid test today. I don’t think she should attend any event & potentially expose older family members. AITA?
