PMDs: “I know every is tired of zoom, let’s try to limit meetings where possible Also PMDs: “We need a zoom pre meeting to prep for the main meeting, which is also on zoom, and a debrief meeting on zoom immediately after the main meeting.

Any advice on managing crossfire between partner and project manager? Prepared a deck based on flow & structure discussed with PM, then partner reached out individually asking for a different flow.

I currently am a senior in a specialized healthcare consulting function. I received a job offer which is less glamorous as a project manager @ a hospital organization.

Is Evanston good college town? I haven’t been able to visit due to covid so curious if it has decent restaurants, bars, and shopping
Opinions needed: I’m involved in BPN (black professionals network) at work. We try to have events and touch points each quarter, but obviously because of COVID we haven’t been able to do so. I am trying to brainstorm ideas for connecting virtually (email newsletters, zoom calls, etc) and possible topics to be included and discussed so that it won’t end up in just a negative venting session. I would like to keep it positive and upbeat. Ideas/suggestions welcome!
Do any moms work from home and have their baby at home with them? If so, how do you do it??? I have a 3 month old at home and my husband has her while I work upstairs but he goes back to work from his leave in a couple of weeks and I’ll be home to be with her and work. I’m nervous about it and just want to see what options I have - external childcare is not one of them at the moment.

This dude who is poly said he loves cooking and his love language is acts of service. He’s a mutual acquaintance I just met. I’m the opposite of poly and it’s not a secret. He cooked a meal and left it on my doorstep because I’ve been sick. I didn’t know he was gonna do that. As a friend gesture it was kind if him. But IS IT a friend gesture, knowing what I know of him? I wanna be courteous. But I’m not sure how to read this or how to clarify it without risking embarrassment either way???
