Omg!! Just found out that that diversity episode from “The Office” was wrote by Ryan!! That’s one of my fav episode! (Week 3 of quarantine )
Gender reveal parties are a dumb recent invention - call both sets of your parents and leave the rest of us out of it. Literally none of your friends care.
How does this group feel about whether we still need feminism in the workplace today Vs diversity?
How is it at the BDO Boston office? Is there diversity in people and what is usually the number one complaint?
I’m socially liberal AF but I have to admit I don’t get/understand/buy the gender identity concept (i.e. there are 50+ genders). Okay, let the PC police and troll-mania commence. 😔
The PwC Transparency report on diversity was co-signed by 3 white people and included multiple stock BIPOC photos. One important group was omitted: retired partners on pensions... 99% white?? 100%?? For this inaugural report the bar has been set very low.
There is a lot of discussion about gender discrimination and providing extra support to women, which I agree is a good thing. But it’s a reality that there are many women who have had much more ...
Honest question here: if your team is hiring, and after interviewing many different candidates, you get to two finalists: 1) very confident, great chemistry, very well put together, some experience with the industry, and well arriculated; 2) less confident, but great experience, excelent background, skills that can be a great fit to the team. => Which one would you choose? What if I say number 1 is a man and number 2 is a woman? Does that change your choice? Curious to know your thoughts.
Do you feel like Latinos are being left out of the discussion or overlooked as more companies commit to anti-racism and inclusion efforts?
I have social anxiety and I feel like I am being punished because of that. I am not being promoted and was told to work on confidence even though my technical performance was outstanding. I wished I can just "work on my confidence" and boom. But it's not gonna happen like that. Diversity has been the hot topic these days. Why do we view shy people, introverts, socially anxious people as less capable? Should I accept that PA is not for me or can I do something to contribute?
Sometimes I want to test the boundaries of the firms diversity tolerance by wearing suits in the style of Deion Sanders, Shannon Sharpe, and Steve Harvey in the workplace.
Dear Advertising Week. Do better. An all white Diversity & Inclusion panel? Really? 🤦🏾♀️ https://www.blackenterprise.com/white-panel-awnewyork-diversity/
I’m leading an initiative to promote Diversity + Inclusion. I have one practice telling me one thing, another practice lead telling me they want another thing (and to keep it within our group), and the organization lead telling me they just want to be involved! And then a set of HR regulations I must follow that none of them are pleased with. I feel like I have pressure from all angles and am just trying to do something good 😞😞😞
On my way to DU today for the Inclusion Summit but feeling really down. Got a meeting with my practice lead mid day and pretty sure its a layoff meeting - I honestly don’t know what to do...
Are you actually a recruiter if you’re not a very attractive white female? But seriously only recruiters I ever see fit that stereotype, where’s the diversity?
Let's have a productive conversation about the Google employee who was just fired for his controversial diversity memo

People familiar with DFW airport: if I have a boarding pass for a non-American flight out of Terminal E, can I still go through security via Terminal D? Thanks.
Been on the bench for some weeks. Sure I'm helping with proposals, but I'm also able to work on my NPO, study for my GRE for B-School in 2018 and hang with the wife. Being anxious = waste of time.

Any parents of school-age kids find it amusing that some school districts are doing 100% remote learning, but are re-opening schools for "supervised" e-learning for a "mere" $50/day per kid? Whoever came up with this idea....wow! That is what I call "creative combustion".

Does anyone use a “career coach” not necessarily a head hunter but someone who helps you get thinking. This is potential end goals, these are steps to take in your career, these are where your interests lie, this would be a good fit you see the idea. The other side of helping find the job, negotiating salary and other services would be the nice to have but I’m looking more for the coach. If you have used them what’s your experience? Worth the cost?
