I am switching jobs and my wife is pregnant. We will have health insurance with my new employer but my wife found some article suggesting we may not get pregnancy coverage under new insurance because they will recognize it as a preexisting condition. Can anyone assuage my concern and let me know if there’s any validity to this? Are we screwed..
The pressure at work has increasingly led to a strain on my mental health. I have allowed myself one too many times to prioritize the needs of others (clients, PPMDs, etc.) before my own and the price is showing in my inability to highly perform like once before. I’m at the point of not caring about anything any longer, even if that means risking my job. I’m not sure the reason I’m posting this—perhaps I’m seeking guidance or maybe I just needed to vent. Sigh…
I just started at a new job and noticed that whenever I go to start work, my blood pressure spikes (from 120/80 to 150/110) along with my pulse (from 80 to 110). I like what I do but it’s hard to ignore the affect on my health. What should I do, aside from meditation and deep breathing (which I’m doing)?
Happy new year to all you lovely, smart, successful, strong women 💪🏽 wishing you all good health and happiness in 2021❤️
Hey, researching & would love to know: any experiences of isolation you’ve felt; personal examples of belonging (or lack thereof); & how this has affected your mental health. Thanks!
I graduated in May 2020 and found myself excepting a Junior Art Director position in Healthcare. I never saw myself in health but with many agencies having hiring freezes I decided to get some experience and save up some money in the meantime￼. Fast forward one year; I’ve added a new campaign to my website and I’m starting to apply to consumer agencies again￼￼￼￼. ￼ Any tips to help me make the transition?￼￼ Any place to avoid? Who have you noticed is hiring again? Thanks in advance :)

Philosophical question (not trying to be political, just a genuine question I’ve been grappling with): do you think being pro-choice and pro-vax mandate are logically inconsistent? Both are sincere views of mine, but upon further reflection I haven’t been able to think of a way one position could be completely defended without undermining the other. Goes the other way for pro life/against vax mandates as well. The fact is, they just feel different to me, but I’m not sure why. Thoughts?

Has anyone seen or discussed this Petition for SHRM must support Black Lives Matter & the LGBTQ community? I’ve grown increasingly concerned and disappointed in SHRM’s lack of vocal support for employment protections for LGBTQ+ and black and brown workers, especially as a black woman in HR. It seems like SHRM is overly focused on what is absolutely “legal” and not what is right. I’m of the opinion HR professionals must not only be “legal” but have a relevant and compassionate stance
Apparently my default behavior to improve and increase efficiency doesn't work quite as well when it's telling other family members what to do in the kitchen. Lesson learned. Mom knows best.
