Yes. Almost every single project I’ve been on.

Yes. But mostly outside Deloitte. While there are micro examples within the firm, I’ve found that Deloitte is largely very supportive and open minded. My strongest table pounders have been men. I’ve found that men from other firms tend to be a lot worse. I hate getting called sweetie and it’s insulting when they look to me to ask if I’ll be taking notes when the male analyst is standing right beside me. When that happened, my male analyst was appalled and upset - probably more than I was. That meant a lot that he noticed and cared, and I think that’s largely representative of the men at my firm.

I had a friend who was working at Deloitte, she got sexually harassed. Went to hr, basically gone to the top of the country, and got served a whole bunch of lip service. They promised actions were taken, but he still kept his job. Then the work environment became so horrible and toxic she had to quit. She was being singled out, not given any opportunity to progress, treated like a secretary. Whereas she was someone that's extremely smart, ambitious and capable.

Alright so fine there were not many diversity initiatives in the past and not a huge push to create more diversity in organizations. But now is the time you can change that. Moving forward you can put these these initiatives in place.

A CRO offerred me an internal consulting/biz dev role. They offered 145k TC (20% bump) and slightly better benefits. They also offered accelerated path (6mo to 1yr) to MC. While promotion to MC at my current company is at least 1 year away. The job is interesting to me and fits my careery goal. But my big concern is that I've only been with my current company for a year (this is my first job, post PhD). Would this affect my resume in the future in terms of being viewed as "job hopping"?

Interested to hear how people learn project management. I have done PRINCE2 exam and read PMP materials, but I find these are too textbook theory based. Real life projects seem to be very different and a lot more complicated. I often do not know what needs to be done unless someone tells me. I believe you can learn these things on the job, but I am keen to expedite this with some books or courses. Are there any resources that are particularly helpful?
