Happy Friday Everyone! I am working with a team to better understand how professional services organizations can better retain female talent in order to make real progress toward achieving gender equity in the workplace. In order to inform our strategy, we need your help! If you wouldn't mind taking a few minutes to fill out this brief anonymous survey it would be greatly appreciated. Link to the survey here >> (google.com) Thanks!
Hello, I work for West Monroe. We’re trying to put together a Gender curriculum for an employee listening session. Unfortunately, no one within our Pride ERG has been openly out as gender queer. I don’t want to be misinformed and speak from a Cis point of view about gender queerness. If anyone’s willing to either present, faciliate, or have a 1-on-1 about pronoun usage, gender fluidity, and/or nonbinary identities and resources, it’d really help. Message me 🏳️🌈
London 🐠, have you faced bias due to ethnicity / national origin / your accent…seems like cultural diversity is at the face of the city but firm cultures beneath it all seem to be quite murky.
I am noticing that McKinsey is increasingly recruiting at non-elite schools (very roughly speaking not top 15 schools). At my old undergrad, 5 years ago the most competitive firm to show up was EY. This year McKinsey took 4 non-internship full hires. Why is McKinsey going “down market” for recruiting? Are elite school kids losing interest in consulting so McK has to cast a wider net? Or is McK seeking a wider pool for other reasons? I advise undergrads on consulting so want to be best informed.
Any recommendations for less gender-conforming suits? I want something that fits well (not baggy) but women’s suits seem to be so overly feminine. I don’t like standing out so much.
I currently work in the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion field (a lot of ERG management). Any certifications or graduate programs so you think would help me grow my knowledge and skills? Currently getting my CDP
Question for the MAGA Republicans: Why is your faction so lacking in diversity? Are you okay with that?
Promoted to Director!!! Promo class is really small this year, and I can’t help but think that while I really Fucking deserved this, I was also the only female in the class. I wouldn’t call it imposter syndrome. I worry my peers will thinks it’s a diversity promo, not a deserved one (although my team members have all been saying I deserve to be promoted).
Today I went to work because I have shit to do and using my gender to take a day off hurts me the most as I'd have twice as much shit to do tomorrow.

Hey ladies, I’m in the middle of a career dilemma. I switched to industry from federal consulting 6 months ago. The company I joined hasn’t been the best. I did get a large pay bump (75 -> 105). There isn’t a ton of diversity (I’m a POC woman), and have felt belittled at times from male colleagues. The working hours have been rough too. When I joined my current job, I had severe anxiety and started Zoloft. That with therapy helped tons in managing my day to day. However, I have an offer cont...
