Quick poll to settle a bet: least favorite product group to work with? LevFin? ECM? DCM? M&A? All of the above?
Anyone ever feel they were the diversity hire or were promoted because of an inclusion quota/goal? I am really glad of the firm’s commitment to advancing and supporting women. I just can’t help but feel this sometimes and question my abilities and accomplishments... 😔
Any suggested baby playlists that have worked for you? My four month old loves this one - instantly calms him down.
Side hustle to make extra money to help with the cost of living increase

Ladies - recommendations where to get over the knee boots for ladies with thick thighs? And wide feet as well.

Billing almost 70 hours a week with no end in sight and poor leadership. Struggling hard to hit meetings but still trying to check in w support. Any advice?

Throw what you know ✌️✌️✌️
My SO wants to move to NY and I’m concerned about moving there - Asian female (really short lol). I got people following me before in Philly so just wanted to understand if it’s safe (what parts of NY) thanks!
Deloitte just published its DEI report and the data confirms that the bamboo ceiling is very real. Asian representation is pretty good until manager level and then plummets at the SM and PPMD level
Any 🐠 have an idea of how hard it is to apply/work/succeed in a Greater China office without extensive knowledge of mandarin (no problem speaking but slow at reading and writing and basic business proficiency)
Background: 1.75 generation Chinese Canadian thinking about rekindling with the Chinese culture
Are there any networks/programs to help out non-LGBT Asian guys in the professional world? There appears to be programs with significant impact and financial backing for women and LGBT groups, but is there anything similar for Asian guys? Just looking for a way to help my own professional development since not a lot of support for Asian guys (or anyone for that matter) is given at my firm.
Best Korean (or Asian okay too) hair salon in Manhattan? I have a digital perm and just need a cut with some layers - too much weight in my hair after quarantine!
Good places to meet other Asians in Boston?
Saw this post. Confused though. I thought ppl were dinged for saying “all lives matter” in hopes of bringing up racism issues for other minorities,bc rn we only care about black lives? Lol. Which makes me question, for my asian 🐠, if police becomes defunded, are you guys concerned about your safety? (Trying to play news catchup). Criminal acts against Asians (esp older generations) are more prevalent in certain states, and I wouldn’t feel safe. And factually, a lot is perpetrated by blacks.
Relatives on dad’s side are super toxic. My dad consistently asks me to visit them and his mom on that side but I haven’t for a year now since the pandemic. I keep making excuses to not attend their family events (where if I do attend I’m just ignored)…what should I do? My dad gets so hurt and angry when I tell him I don’t want to visit. He forces my mom to visit even though theyve been incredibly rude to her
I felt confused when I saw Buttigieg’s name on the speaker list at DNC convention and no name of Yang anywhere. (Pointing PB out because he was mayor of South Bend, elected with very few votes). The speaker list was long.. so many people yet not a single Asian American was there. I was so confused. And some people said Asians are not in their head because Asians do not fit their box. I am glad he said something about it and got added but feel not so great he was omitted initially.. meh 🙄
I need advice. Please see comment for full post.
Visiting NYC for the first time! Any recommendations? I have a list of pizza places but looking for some asian spots!
I feel like many of you will disagree with this, but wanted to share what others are saying
