Had an interesting conversation with my partner yesterday. He told mr the way I think analytically surpasses top leadership level but my recommendations can come off aggressive and too assertive

Continued I believe that if I were a white male it would be a different conversation and I probably would have been promoted already. I hate how the way I look determines how my cmmunication is recieved. Its like when people deal with me over the phone and virtually everything is great and then in person totally different reaction. I've been told that I have a very powerful presence but I'm tired of it working against me. I dont want to pretend to be someone that I'm not and dim my light for acceptance.

Does anyone ever wonder what makes it ok to say (without saying) if your appearance were different, you’d fare better? Do people recognize what’s actually being communicated? And that it’s a clear opportunity to demonstrate being an ally/advocate? All that to say, that situation is shit. Respect on the thought leadership! Keep it up.

Did he give a specific example? Does he give you immediate feedback typically? What was his suggestion? Do you trust your counselor to further this discussion? Part of me is curious, the other part of me is speaking from experience. I knew I realized my feedback was bs for a while bc of the way it was structured. Eventually I got a new boss and he validated my feelings because he was impressed with me and the way I would take control of conversations, he gave me constructivefeedback which I worked on. He eventually gave me more responsibilities and trusted I could lead meetings on my own. Unfortunately, the way promotion work some of the leadership that was giving me bs feedback still had a say in my promotion or lateral move. So eventually I left the company. Now my boss is a kick ass female partner who is well respected and advocates for me from the first day I started.

So evidently it's the delivery that is a bit much in his opinion...

Feel kind of silly saying this, but getting more concerned about covid-19. I’m 28 y/o, generally healthy but think I may have high blood pressure, which I’ve read raises risk. Anyone else feel similar

I don’t get why the entire world is freaking out about Covid19. (1) be cautious, (2) don’t visit elderly relatives, but the way I see it- everyone’s going to come into contact with it- it’s inevitable

One of my biggest takeaways from this whole situation is that the Wall Street Journal is a top, top source of daily news. Content, speed, minimal bias.

Anyone else still have the pinned post about the A wanting to WFH? Super irrelevant now (and tbh I find all pinned posts annoying and wish we could opt out...)?
