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?
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 show your human side at work? Also share your gender if you’re comfortable. I’m F and I generally do, but wondering if this is not perceived well. For example, sometimes I talk to my peers about my weekend plans, sometimes about how tired I am because of work, I recently had surgery and shared with them details about it.
I secretly resent my colleagues who are women and underrepresented minorities for getting extra coaching/advancement opportunities to make our diversity numbers look better.
Any fun ideas for a gender reveal? (Not mine but for a friend). Only 6 of us will be there
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!
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.)
How do people find out if there is a gender pay gap at their agency? Is HR required to share this info if asked?
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.
Some men aren’t sexist, they’re assholes and gender is irrelevant to them - it’s not always about you
Everyone: We asked for diversity and visible minorities in this video. This edit shows 90% whites dudes... The producer: The guy in the first shot is latino and there’s also an Irishman and an Australian bro at the end 😑
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.
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?

Partners better watch out. If you commit blatant sexual assault on a junior colleague, your firm might force you to attend diversity training! 🤔
There’s been a rise in Diversity equity and inclusion trainings. My experience with these has always been terrible. How has your experience been? Anyone have good experiences? If yours has been terrible too, what should they have done differently?
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!
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?
Anyone have any good recommendations for Financial Advisors / Wealth Mgmt? TC: 105k, I max out my 401k but feel lost with what to do after that - still paying student loans, but should have those done within the year. Didn’t come from any money so a lot of this is foreign to me - thanks!
Looking for investment advice. Sitting on 100k+ cash and need investment suggestions. Just switched jobs, NW 535k, total comp 173k and I max out 401k/HSA. My only debt is related to a mortgage purchased last year. Appreciate any and all advice.
I had a mediocre background. I am not mediocre. I’ve never gotten past the background rounds. I’ve never gotten to solve a case in an interview setting. I know I would impress. How do I get there?
How is the risk practice at MBB? Do you work on the same work as big 4 risk? Where do most people come from.. ie ex big 4, internally trained, ex bankers etc. What would help a candidate from a big 4 risk transition to a position in risk at mbb? I'm going to be entering a big 4 in risk, but would like to switch to mbb at some point in my life.
How is hexaware second round of interview? What to expect ? And how many more rounds does it have.
Hey fish fam, thinking of a side hustle for post covid and was wondering if anyone knows where I can find a good business plan and financial plan template? Specifically for a restaurant. Appreciate any links you can share!
Sales Managers: would you consider a candidate without a history of quota achievement? I’m interested in AE roles and believe I posses the skills to be successful in sales, but my experience to date has been in client-services, customer success, and pre-sales consulting delivering product demos.
Anyone on an “agile SAP” project? Are folks really using the agile SAP piece or is that just a way to use the word sprint in front of the client?skeptical and would like some add’l unscientific data.
Wfh is more tiring than wfw
My client hasn’t paid their invoices since the project started 8 weeks ago and now my boss is really concerned. What am I missing? What’s the big issue? Is it not just a standard legal process to remedy payment by now? Is he more concerned with the extra work? Reputation issues? “Free work” financials? I’m fairly new to the industry and haven’t been exposed to that side of the business yet
With 16 weeks parental leave at EY, 1yr no travel after after maternity for ACN, and all the distractions of workers with children, firms should show some love to the yeoman single or childless people
How do you guys construct your cover letters? I’ve been applying to a bunch of places with no response, so I really don’t know what works. Been trying to find ways to make it stand out. Go into how I love their work (even when I think it’s meh) and speak to more than what’s on my resume. In your opinion, is this more of the time to just talk business - my accomplishments, experience, and why that helps?
Lol at the people who work extra to finish meaningless deliverables that the client will never look at (Federal).
Hey guys! Im currently an incoming associate consultant at Bain & Company and my goal is join private equity down the line. Would you guys recommend that I get an MBA (hopefully sponsored) or try to jump straight into industry?
Realized my former manager asked everyone on my team but me to review her. Pretty sure she knew I’d be honest about when she done f*cked up with me. I’ll get you, my pretty, and your little dog too... during my exit interview!
