One of my favorite things about consulting is county of origin diversity. Can we do a quick poll here of various CoO represented. Put your flag and have the fellow nationals upvote!
Was up for a stretch role of a manager role as a senior analyst (almost cl9 promotion) but delivery lead says he doesn’t want to put me in the role as the client counterpart is male and I am female and he said due to the travel requirements it wouldn’t work…. Kinda mad if gender is the only thing holding me back from this role. Should I say something
🐠, what’re your thoughts on diversity versus inclusion. What initiatives have made a material impact to improving how your sense of belonging to your team, practice, or firm?
Have you been given any diversity and inclusive feedback by your boss / leader or have given such feedback to your team members? What do you think can be done effectively as a senior to help drive D&I.
Hello 🐠 Trying to understand the diversity and inclusion agenda of various firms/ offices. What are some trainings/ programs that your firm have? Would be great to hear about the ones that made an impact to you :) Bain & Company Boston Consulting Group McKinsey & Company
Hello, I am a 20 year DEI professional looking to get my foot in the door to a global company. Precious director of a 2-6 billion dollar Supplier Diversity program at a university and Healthcare system. Current DEI director for people and procurement at an Architecture and Engineering firm. I would appreciate any help I can get.
My favorite thing about the confessions bowl is watching respondents assume the gender of the OP in the relationship themed posts.
On a call with the CEO talking about diversity and they compare a person with tattoos experiencing prejudice in the office to Black people colleague experiences...
Meanwhile last I checked, a tattoo was a choice and removable. Also depending on placement, you can’t see it.
Anyone care to share some views, re: practical ways to look at inflation to get us out of this sh*tshow?
A) Is the current metric (core inflation) correct/ adequate as a leading indicator?
B) If not, what is the correct model? Excluding indirect tax and inclusion of supply/ demand factors to assign weighting?
So I have just hit around 110k net worth but not very diversified. About 80k is tied up in Rolex watches. These have appreciated in value a lot but I can’t bring myself to sell them. Any tips to overcome this and diversity?
"Ah, a question about gender equality. I'll refer that to the only woman at this table, an aggressively smiley thin blond white lady of no discernable age, to tell you how great we're doing"
Were you out at work or with your family first? Would also love to hear if it was your gender or your sexuality (or both) too.
What are the gender ratios at other companies? I’m currently the only woman on a dev team of 21 software engineers... yikes that’s <5%
I got pulled into a meeting today with a bunch of white, male Partners/Directors across a few different line of services. I’m the only Latina Sr Manager in the room. Where’s the diversity? 😟 I felt like I didn’t even have the chance to speak much being a lower level and the only female in the room. For the first time in consulting I actually felt very intimidated by this. How do you all overcome this?
Just came across the term Latinx, apparently a gender-neutral way of saying latino/latina. I have mixed feelings about the term. Thoughts on this?
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?
Sunday random musings (in bed 😉) - How long does a typical sex session last for you - solo and with a partner? Please include gender for context

Lots of Republican silence in this bowl over Trump's racism. Just a reminder that silently going along with it is not better than loudly enjoying it.
Pick a side. Either you're okay with it or not.

Have y’all ever had a painless period but for a longer duration? Like 7 days? I didn’t get my period for 3 months but now I got it and it’s like day 6 or something. I mean I am not bleeding like crazy but it’s not light either. Also, no pain which I am very thankful for.
Does anyone know if there is a California JCCP equivalent in Washington State? Thanks in advance!
For those of you managing others - What have been some ways that you have encouraged people to take responsibility and ownership over the work they are assigned? I work with a few people who, even when expectations are clearly outlined, still need me to follow-up several times in order to complete the task(s). Reiterating myself and explicitly stating my expectations both verbally and in writing seem to be getting me nowhere, so I’m really hoping to hear what has worked for you
