I just landed my dream job at a big tech company but I think I might have benefited from affirmative action. The recruiter mentioned how I would add diversity to the leadership team of the product...
Quick vent: I really hate when people aren’t inclusive! I invite my roommate out all the time with my friends and we have a great time. I haven’t received a single invite back. She definitely has more friends than I do in the area so it would help me out a lot to be invited & included to form a friend group. I even tried to invite myself and still no inclusion. Ugh.
My company did an analysis of the diversity of our outside counsel based on hours billed and spend. Women billed more than half the hours but were far less than half the spend 😒
I’m interested in switching to diversity consulting or something tied to inclusion work. Any insight into what companies/types of roles I should be researching?
Getting ready to attend a few diversity/tech/women’s conference at target schools. Any advice from previous attendees on attire, general questions, advice, etc.?
Thinking about moving to a big city with the following preferences. I am thinking about Dallas, philly, or Chicago. What’s your experience living in those cities? Is there any other city I am missing? Appreciate any input! 1. Growing economy and population 2. Great food scene and things to do as a young professional 3. Relative LCOL can’t afford housing in NY, SoCal, etc. 4. Diversity of culture especially Chinese culture presence
Am I wrong in thinking it’s inappropriate to talk negatively about members of a specific gender or race at work? I’ve been hearing more of it recently.
Accenture, BCG, Deloitte & E&Y all signed up to be in the consortium for eliminating the gender pay gap. All the sudden I'm feeling the urge to switch firms!
After reading many annual reports, I am really getting tired of the fact that female management board members are always HR. Often that’s the only female member. Gender equality has long way to go

Hello all! Can a New York registered attorney file a diversity jurisdiction lawsuit in MA federal court while residing outside the US, and not running an office in NY? Any thoughts? Thanks.
What's the worst case of marital infidelity you've witnessed at your firm? Offender's gender and level within the firm, + how you/others who knew reacted and handled it?
So. Much. Diversity.
Is having an all-female event in a company setting inherently sexist? Isn’t defining who is allowed to attend an event based on gender the definition of sexism and should not be allowed?
Seriously hoping these numbers will get better https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-08-09/dimon-calls-jpmorgan-a-black-diversity-leader-numbers-disagree
Once, a M friend said "men are stronger than women, I could dominate you right now" and at the moment I didn't know what to say cause he was in fact bigger and stronger than me. But this is something that bothers me still... I think people in general, regardless of gender, have different abilities and it is not a matter of comparing but rather understanding how best to use them, for yourself and for the society. It pisses me off to know ppl can think like this, and he is actually a good friend
Recently had my opinion shut down because “as a white male, I was coming from a position of privilege and could not possibly understand”. Excuse me? My skin pigmentation has more bearing than any life experience, education and past hardships and condemns me to being inherently incapable of ever being able to grasp certain concepts?
What are other people doing to drive diversity in leadership? I am hiring below me but want to hire at my level. Where do you source outside your network?
Any Latinos feeling left out of all this diversity buzz? Seems we are always invisible :/
Hard money loan for a buy, rehab rent project: 168k principal, 8% interest, 2.9% loan cost (4.8k) and 4 points (6.7k) The upfront cost seems a bit excessive to me or is this normal today?
I have a return offer following my internship for an MBB in my home country in SE Asia. However, I want to stay in the US after my MBA (salary, relationship, network etc.). Would it make sense to get offers from T2s to put pressure on my company to enable a transfer? If so, how would I best play this card? I would likely pick any US firm over any MBB at home, given the financial considerations.
Have an in-person interview with Slalom next week for a consultant position, I’ll be interviewed by 2 different consultants for 45 minutes each. Any tips from Slalom folks? Are these behavioral?

Desi ppl , struggling a bit with verbal communication since I moved to US. Sometimes can’t find words during client meeting so do a lot of ‘aaa’s , ‘Kind of’s and ‘sort of’. How can I improve it? I do watch English series a lot and read books but looking for other ideas that may have helped you all . Are there are classes which helps with fluency ?
Folks who’ve left ClearView, how is life on the other side, and how long did you stay before you jumped ship? It’s a week where I’m burning, and the fact that I feel so isolated during it makes me want to quit consulting altogether. Would also like to talk to some of you if possible. Never thought I’d say this but I honestly feel unhappy in my job, and I wonder if it is just WFH related - and whether it might get better once the office opens up.
A firm said they’d like to receive applications from and interview more candidates before making a final decision on my interviews. Does this mean they are unlikely to offer as they want to see other candidates who may be better?

What percentage increase would you need to leave public accounting for a position at the same level (example: Manager to Manager) in industry? And as follow-up, if your public accounting firm then came back and matched the offer, would you stay or would you go? Looking for some other perspectives and consideration as a decision could be looking myself.
