Kind of a quick rant. I did a quick search through some firms websites because I am thinking of switching jobs. It is definitely clear most firms still do not embrace diversity. I know diverse applicants must be just as qualified! So what is keeping attorneys of color out?? It’s so discouraging.
What are ways you focus on diversity and inclusion in your company for the current employees that you support?
Contriversal topic but here it goes: I’m in-house a F100 and happen to be a white male (although I do have a fairly severe “invisible” disability). Progression to a management level attorney is quite difficult despite the relatively large. Recently the company announced DEI initiative that includes targets and goals for women and people of color (not applicable to other minorities). I absolutely want more diversity in our law department - I’ve taken steps to help ensure that there is - but…
How are your firms responding and messaging to employees about the legislative attacks against LGBTQ+ folks in Texas, Utah, Florida, etc?

These multiple gender emojis are too much... really? We need three emojis for a doctor? 👨⚕️🧑⚕️👩⚕️... why?
Accountability correlates with Responsibility in this way: When a person accepts personal responsibility for how his/her actions and decisions impact and influence the lives of others, said person holds him-/herself accountable and accepts being accountable to others for the equity and inclusion (or lack thereof) in their spheres of influence.
I would love to hear views on should you make Diversity & Inclusion training mandatory? Why or why not? Thanks for any feedback.
I think I speak on behalf of quite a few people when I say to every parent-to-be that I could honestly give two shits about the gender of your impending abomination. No one asked. No one cares.
I’m having feminist guilt over even thinking this, but has anyone found that working for a male supervisor is SO much easier than working for a female supervisor? And it’s not because I’m super hot, trust me.
Tired/disgusted about all the gender discrimination and sexual harassment we face at work ? Me too. Post about your experiences on www.hesaidwhaaat.com
New York. All talk and no action here when it comes to actual inclusion and not cosmetic efforts.
Two-thirds of women say they’ve been bullied by another woman at work. What’s your take on it? I’m pretty sure that we’re equal with men on that one. Should bullying be assigned a gender?
I have rollover IRA 180K all invested into FXAIX. Any suggestion on different diversity options and percentage I should invest in different options?
How do you deal with microaggressions in the office around race, gender, socioeconomic upbringing/class, where you went to school, etc?
How do couples share dining out expenses ? Before my current relationship I was happy to go 50:50. My current boyfriend easily has 4 drinks with a meal (I have one) and, being a big guy, eats at least twice of what I eat. For me an entree is enough. He likes to order multiple appetizers and desserts and eat them all. I want to say I will just pay for mine but I feel unsure how this looks.
How great would office emojis be in this app?

How does this sound?
More Serious. How many have friends struggling to find a job? I still have a few from college out for ~2 years. I keep hearing the economy is improving, unemp is down. I consider myself fortunate.
I sometimes envy shorter people for having a lot more room to work with their laptop mid flight.
The word "politics" seems to be used any time a business decision is a made that doesn't really make any business sense. What are the times you've heard the word used?
When you just friended your SM on Xbox and you can't decide if that's a good or bad thing for your work-life; but all you can think about is how you're going to kick his ass in Call of Duty.
