Leverage chat (Teams, Slack, etc) to ping people to intro yourself briefly and learn what projects they’re on, etc. These short convos can help accelerate you getting to know your coworkers and is a more relaxed and less formal way than through email or setting up a formal meeting.

smart

I switched jobs, I’d recommend setting up like 20 mins on like a Friday where you know most work related meetings probably aren’t scheduled for a quick intro

Sounds like a good way to frustrate people. Additional zoom/calls just prior to the weekend.

It depends on the culture at your new place. I transitioned into industry and found people like non-content, coffee chat Zooms at my new company

I know we all love the work from home (or do we?) but does anyone actually miss traveling for their consulting engagements and all the fun that goes along with it? The late nights at the office then the bar and random hookups and excitement and all that? Sure it’s a grind but I think I actually miss it too. Maybe I just miss seeing people at work or seeing people at all. I wonder if we’ll ever get back to that.

I confess that this interaction I had @ a recent camping trip w/ my husband, son, two dogs was VERY confusing: I was doing a training session w/my dogs when an older white man stopped what he was doing to watch us. We trained for ~15 minutes. At the end of the training session, the man asks loudly “WHO trained your dogs?” At first I couldn’t process what he asked. I froze. He repeated the question. I curtsied dramatically & smiled. Unconscious race/gender bias? How would you respond?
