I will say ugly. I have been with a M of opp gender for a very long time. I'll say it is always a big disadvantage. An ex - I got the best rating from a M and that M left. The M who replaced him/her reduced my rating to avg in a span of 2 months. I observed same partiality on the awards front also. I was not given any award because I never use to indulge in the nonsense which the new M started, but those who bootlicked and agreed to everything received awards and very good ratings.This is just 1 ex. I have seen others face this situation too.

Over 10 yrs of work across 4 firms, I had 2 female managers. Both the female managers were among the best ppl I have worked with and learnt a lot from them.
I had the opportunity to work with some of the best male managers as well.
I strongly believe that it boils down to ppl and gender hardly plays a role

How to handle boss who discriminates. Recently got into a new role, I have faced blatant gender discrimination in the past and realize it is a bank wide issue. Details: I work with a male who has been here longer and trained me, he has one project all 8-5 hours- admits it’s not a full day of work, makes more than me and is higher rank. I have two projects, been here 2 months- apac emea and na hours so I’m working long days. Paid less, when i ask for help i don’t get responses- more below.

There's been multiple remarks in my office saying that they wanted me on their engagement team because I'm female. I question why my gender is being considered as a factor? Thoughts? Is this sexism?

Has anyone seen significant improvements in gender equality or racial diversity in their agencies? Wondering if this is just a thing that’s cool to discuss but nothing really happens.

Love watching my old agency struggle to retain their BIPOC talent and seeing on LinkedIn that all their new hires lately have been white men. Their diversity stats were already abysmal (even compared to the rest of the industry,) but it makes me laugh knowing that it's just getting worse for them.
