I'm always on the naughty list and get those increasingly panicked emails each day the week it's due. It's obnoxious. I'm like, "it's due Friday. Is today Friday? No? Then calm down, I'll get to it."

Sorry EY, I'll try to keep it family friendly next time

Someone who tends to make sexist remarks (without realizing that they are sexist) used an analogy in a client meeting - statistics are like a mini skirt.

I want to come from a place of building awareness. Any tips?
