So you think your firm actually does a good job of fostering Diversity & Inclusivity or are we all just playing ourselves ?
Have been getting hit up by places about great jobs I’m excited about, but they happen to be at places with known diversity problems. I can’t shake that feeling that they’re talking to me because I’m a POC and they need to diversify, not necessarily because of my experience and skill set. Anyone have advice of how to fight that feeling? Other advice?
You want to talk about diversity and inclusion, Tim? Can we please have tampons and pads available in the ladies room?

Should diversity really out-weight experience and education in the hiring process? Thoughts?
Has anyone here seen the latest Covergirl campaign? Love the empowerment and diversity. Def a step up in beauty campaigns after that Dove fiasco I’d say… http://bit.ly/2xFAeGX
At your firm, how would you say internal initiatives/ ENGs are split by gender? Flipping through some of ours, I’m seeing the majority are women. How can we get men more involved?

I heard Accenture just created an all gender bathroom in their NYC office. That could make work/life balance more interesting 😬
I’ve been feeling incredibly frustrated at the lack of follow through and systemic change that our industry promises over and over. Remember the black squares? Remember the Commit to Change initiative? Remember all your favorite agencies talking loud about racial and gender equality?
So instead of punching the wall I’ve been stepping up my random acts of kindness.
I saw an old man with only one functional leg and arm, struggling with groceries. I carried them to his apartment 2 blocks away...
As a gender-conforming hetero-normative neuro-typical cis-gender woman of a certain age, I feel completely superfluous.
For those of you who work at agencies with a dedicated D&I specialist/chief diversity officer/HR rep, do you feel that their efforts make a difference in the workplace?
Thoughts on casting— diversity matters. Representing the population who is your target audience matters. Getting your core message across matters. What are the conversations happening around casting a family and how to be respectful, smart and anti-racist during this process?

Any ideas/suggestions on how to go about forming a diversity committee at a mid size regional law firm? I expect it would be met with some amount of resistance. Thanks!
Help! I'm a Sped teacher (ELA inclusion) that comes home to a High Functioning Autistic 9 yr old with ADHD and a slew of sensory issues that has sworn off soap 🤢. I've made visual check list for bathroom processes, bought timers, tried different bars and body washeds with net sponges, towels and even invested in a pricey showerhead with multiple settings. His set of needs are out of my wheel house. I need suggestions before I just pack up and move out *sarcasm but at the end of my rope*.
Salary renegotiation question:
I left my previous company for an associate level position at Booz, but shortly after orientation, I found out that position wasn’t as described and is unfortunately not a good fit for me. I’ve been on standby for a week and a senior version of the same position I was hired for popped up that they would like me to fill. Since my offer letter that I accepted had a specific position named along with the salary, would I be out of line for asking for more money?
Out of the blue, a manager at my company sends out an email to the entire team saying that he needs access to the full details of our calendars so that he can hijack our meetings. Is this normal behavior?
