From the moderator, for discussion. Should white males be concerned that current focus on diversity will lead to negative results If Yes, why and under what conditions If No, why not?
I secretly resent my colleagues who are women and underrepresented minorities for getting extra coaching/advancement opportunities to make our diversity numbers look better.
GF just got a job in Fort Worth and for anyone who lives in the DFW area... are there any POC that live in Fort Worth? lol we’re visiting and see mostly white people and not a whole lot of diversity?
Why is it diversity in the workplace for women is a recognized problem firms are trying to solve but diversity for underrepresented minorities isn't viewed as an equal priority?
President Trump recently signed an executive order banning US service members and federal contractors teaching certain components of diversity training. I’m wondering from those that manage in organizations affected what sort of ripple is this having. Do people anticipate a ripple effect on private businesses? With so many focusing on DE&I as of late, this seems like a big shock to the system.
Holy crap, is it common in professional services to openly refer to people as "diversity hires"? I mean I went to the same top 20 b school, paid the same $120k, got the same 650+ gmat.
Diversity in advertising is great, however I think it should also include diversity in opinion/political views. Anyone agree/disagree?
Thoughts on ad agency diversity data, now that it’s being released? “Across the entire (Havas) organization in the U.S., 6.11% of employees are Black, 10.8% are Hispanic or Latino and 9.66% are Asian.”
It’s absolutely contrarian that this show up on a job application. If we are trying to get away from labeling people, then let’s get away from labeling people. Especially when it goes into very personal specifics. What’s next: Out of 50 shades of gray, which number are you? Or: If gay, please specify bottom or top. (Let’s say I’m versatile, which do I choose!?) Oh, methinks I’ll just stay unemployed then.
Okay for the last time - the fact that Cities tend to have higher crime (which has been declining over the years ) is a function of what cities are and what they attract - big populations (people moving here for opportunities), social/economic variations resulting in higher possibilities of crime. Cities also tend to have a more diverse demographic than smaller towns, suburbs which tend to have less economic and social diversity. If you have to use crime as a metric for comparison....(contd.)
Some men aren’t sexist, they’re assholes and gender is irrelevant to them - it’s not always about you
How do people find out if there is a gender pay gap at their agency? Is HR required to share this info if asked?
I'm gonna be real: People of color are 100% treated differently in my group. Diversity and inclusion are merely rhetoric and marketing collateral.
Any women on here make significantly more than their (male) SO? I’m trying to be a good millennial and not tie my happiness to gender norms but every few months I get upset (cont)..
Hello London folk. There’s a lot of great chat about diversity in adland on fishbowl, but it’s all very US based. So I’ve just started a bowl on diversity in London specifically - 9qo8f
Do you think there is still a huge gap in skills for women in Tech despite all the pushing to reduce the gender gap? why is that?
I live in and absolutely love California. No other state compares in my mind (industry, career opportunities, salary, culture, diversity, food, weather, landscape, political inclination, etc). If I were to consider temporarily (2-3 years) moving to another state to accumulate more wealth on the way to FI, what states (specifically cities) would make me least miserable?
How much do Diversity and Inclusion Directors make in big law? What about other management positions in "big law"? Thoughts on switching to something in management from associate/partner? Has anyone made this move? Any insight appreciated!
Parents are deciding between moving to WVirginia vs Virginia for retirement to be closer to us based in fairfax, va(ideally be at 1 hour driving distance). They currently in the mid west but WVirginia appeals to them because of low taxes, low cost of living. We are also poc so appreciate some diversity. What are some areas you would recommend both in Va and WV? What else should they consider prior to house hunting? Dad likes to garden/farm as well so looking for homes with large backyards. Tia!
Lady 🐠 - What's S&'s maternity leave policy? Do you get the option to skip CRT? Does it play against you on any way?
Got an interview for a non-Tech role at Amazon Prime Video (data and insight). Anyone have any experience with the interviews for these roles at FAANG?
Chief Talent Officers. Creative Recruiters. Talent Acquisition Manager. Etc. Can anyone help me understand what these people do? Do they all have the same role?
I’m 26 and have ~40k sitting in my savings account. Annual income 140k. Maxing out 401k. No debt. Planning to invest 25k but don’t know where to start. Should I get a wealth manager? What is the best way to approach this?
First time spending the holiday season alone. Please recommend activities to do. Currently, tired of seeing friends Instagram reels.
Hi I’m pregnant and due in august. I’m scheduled for the vaccine in two days and reading about (1) the side effects with the second dose and (2) lack of testing for those who are pregnant has me nervous about potential effects to my baby. Any thoughts on whether to get/not get the vaccine? Already consulting my doctor on this but figured y’all might be good to ask, as well.
What is the next logical step for a former Executive Assistant? One seeking to take on a higher role (non-admin).
Have some college friends asking me what hard skills they should learn or educate themselves on if they want to join a consulting firm. Ideas? (Project, excel, etc) think of entry level useful skills
I only plan on staying in consulting for about 2 more years then off for an MBA. Would it be more worth it to take a level and pay raise at a different big4 moving to senior level rather than going to associate/analyst level at MBB? These are my two choices at the moment. I want to position myself best for post MBA jobs in industry. Salary will def be lower at MBB compared to the senior level at big4 so not sure if it’s worth the trade off in experience.
When being considered for a project (long term), would you tell the engagement leader about your upcoming maternity leave? Has anyone here been rejected for a role after they communicated about parental leave? What is the right thing to do?
How are these 21 year old girls affording a private jet to go to Miami for a weekend of clubbing/ partying. Who are these people. How can I be friends with them? How can I join these groups? Adopt me? Date me? Give me a cheat code to tag along? There’s no way as a SM at PwC I am any close to being on a private jet than I was at 22 when I started.
Anyone work on a commercial due diligence project versus operational DD? How would you describe the difference?
Google is providing all US-based employees weekly COVID tests by mail using bioiQ. Any consulting firms out there doing the same? Seems like a great perk.
Thoughts on REITs? Their values are still deflated compared to pre COVID levels, and interest levels are still at zero... if a REIT in question has a good balance sheet, what do you 🐟 think?
Spouse thinks we should wear a face mask (like the serious N95 variety) when we leave the house to get essential groceries. Is it ethical to buy one when health care workers need them?
