What are some racial/gender/age based micro aggressions you’ve experienced in the workplace?
As a leader in cyber, one of my aspirations is to increase the diversity of any organization that I am a part of.
For example…When I was in Big4, I referred several diverse candidates who are thriving & now, at McKinsey & Company, I set a personal goal to refer 1 diverse candidate, especially in (but not necessarily exclusive to) cyber/tech/IT, for every month of my tenure.

Curious how recruiters are approaching dos and donts of diversity hiring communication to the hiring manager from a best practices perspective.
Have efforts to increase diversity in real estate careers been successful, or do you think there is still a long way to go?
I had an interview and the recruiter (White F) could not stop talking about DEI and POC % hires. It’s great yes but I didn’t even mention or ask about it yet. Barely had time to talk about myself. I was slightly uncomfortable. She made me feel like a diversity hire.

What’s your favorite or must do course for Diversity & Inclusion?
Could be on LinkedIn learning or other platforms.
My heart really goes out for the women in Pakistan, the amount of harassment they face on daily basis. I wonder why that is, is the root cause the extreme level of gender segregation.

I am frustrated as a Gay Woman who has given her all for 30+ years grinding to be the best. I have been in closet, out of closet, in-between and am tired of it. I want to be VALUED as a human being. I have gone from Rock Star to problem when people "found out". I have trained and promoted hundreds of people and been passed over for promotions because of not being a man. I have trained men with less experience, worse results only for them to move forward. If Diversity is important...prove it!

Hello! It seems this bowl is not very active but I'd like it to be. So here's my story: Born & raised in PR, moved to CA for undergrad & have been here since then. I graduated from law school in 2019, followed by a 2 yr bk clerkship. I did the evening program. I really enjoyed law school, in spite of the microaggressions, the late nights, & crazy competition. Love all things diversity in the law. Anyway, currently looking for a position in NYC/DC area. 🤗

How do I transition from a Senior Executive Assistant role to Project Management? Ideally I would like to work in tech. How should I go about this? I currently work in the Real estate industry so it would be a totally new career path. The reason I want to move into tech is I feel like many of the companies I see have the same values as me (diversity & inclusion) and a good culture is so important to me.
I’ve recently started work at a very young tech startup. Coming from a big law background, this was a huge change of pace/environment. I’m having a lot of trouble getting used to how unstructured the startup is. It feels like hire ups give a set of instructions then talk as if they don’t remember, or then decided rules A, B, C and D applies without being clear this was the case. Is this just the general startup environment? If you experienced this before, how did you deal with It?
Please let me know if there are any openings in consulting, advisory and finance roles.
Qualification: CA, BCom
1. 3 years CA internship at Big4
2. 6 months management trainee at a unicorn startup
3. 2 years AM Financial Advisory at Big4

Have a coworker who volunteers for work but never ends up doing it. At what point does it make sense to go to the partner to address this? We’re both midlevels, and I’m tired of having to put in even more time every weekend to pick up his slack. If this were a junior, I’d address it with them first, but this is unacceptable from a fifth/sixth year.

Larger, sophisticated firm with amazing family law practice group making big overtures at me. Having coffee meeting with managing partner-elect, what are some topics I should focus on?
New firm has wide range of practice areas and would be 60-70 attorneys. Really like attorneys in their family group and have arguably “better” clients. Have practiced 10 years at same small office (crim/PI/fam) and feel capped out. Won’t be a partner/owner at current firm until boss retires (3-5yrs).
I’m looking to leave technology risk (IT audit), and get into an industry M&A accountant role. Any advice on how to spin my current experience on my resume for this type of role?
I’ve run budget on my teams but that’s about as close as I can get to any ‘relevant experience’.

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
So, a recruiter gave me feedback that my lack SPHR or SHRM-SCP is causing my resume to be knock out by AI and human recruiters despite my position and work history in Multinationals and being in Technology. They suggested that we put SPHR ( Lapsed). I let it lapse in 2017. What is your opinion? Plus if I were to take another certification - should I take SPHR or SHRM-SCP?

SPHR exam- has anyone ever been “randomly selected” for an application audit? This just happened to me and the sheer amount of effort that is going to go into collecting all the documents almost makes me not want to follow through. Since I didn’t finish undergrad, they’re asking for a copy of my high school diploma or transcript and that itself is going to be an absolute nightmare to get hold of. Guess I’m not really looking for a solution here, just venting.

This is a great idea! Do you have contacts within the company that you could ask if they would be interested in participating in the committee prior to pitching it to the higher ups? I only ask because it is a great idea and they will go for it, but you don't want to be the only committee member who ends up planning everything.
One idea to present would be to come up with a loose calendar for the next couple of months with some events and a possible budget for them. It can get expensive but with good planning, you can do events for a decent price.
Some ideas would be an ugly sweater contest in December, a wellness challenge in January - can group by departments for step challenge or individuals, and so on. At my last company we put out a survey to employees to see what they were most interested in and ended up doing karaoke (an employee had a machine and brought it), RC car racing and a couple of volunteer events where we packed food boxes on site, did a school supply drive where we competed by floor and some other contests.
This is a great initiative! I'd suggest doing a little research and putting together some statistics that demonstrate the value of such a committee in terms of employee engagement, morale, and ultimately retention. That way you'll have something concrete to back up your request.
Provide a business case with a white paper lending evidence that a great company culture or engagement committee helps with retention and productivity!
This is great! In my company I am the one that suggest everything and then they let me run with it. The one downside is that you really have to have the peoples buy-in otherwise you end up doing everything, and it is really hard to motivate people to do more work when they already have a full time job. It is great! And if you have a team that is committed you will go far!
Great initiative 👏🏼wellness challenges are fun, share self-care tips, promote EAP, mental wellness workshops, DEI inclusive language, training, pronouns information… create an internal library with resources accessible to all employees and newsletters with committee updates and such. That’s what I did at my last company build a framework on DEI and mental
What a great idea, OP! I like the fact that you took the initiative. With enough documentation to convince the higher ups, I think you'll get an approval!
