Do NOT claim you are "colorblind" in the workplace. 1. DE&I knowledge is now a core leadership competency. Colorblind claims will earn you the reputation of being DEI-ignorant at best & racist at worst. 2. Colorblindness within the context of workplace diversity is an obvious lie. You do NOT want to be painted as an intellectually dishonest leader. 3. Colorblind claims signal that you lack the leadership skills & vocabulary to have key conversations. Ask questions here, in this safe space.

Why do folks move or stay in Cali when the tax burden is pretty significant compared to another vibrant city like Atlanta or Dallas or Charlotte? I did some calcs and for a 250k salary the diff is 1800 a month in net pay between a no tax city/State such as Dallas, TX and about 1000 between Atlanta/Charlotte and CA. Those are significant numbers unless someone is making 2-4 times where a 1000-1800 may not matter to some.
