Just got off a Psychiatry call with the VA discussing my long running PTSD, anxiety and medication options; both over the counter and other.

A senior partner wrote off a significant amount of my time - due to his write-offs as well as those of another partner, approximately 40% of my 2021 billable hours have been erased. As a result, I will most likely not be eligible for a bonus in 2022. Do I address this with the managing partner of my office? With the partner who wrote off most of my time? Or do I stay silent to preserve what is, on the surface, a good working relationship, as this person could one day serve as a reference for me?

“I must honestly confess that I go through moments of disappointment when I have to recognize that there aren’t enough white persons in our country who are willing to cherish democratic principles over privilege.

Hi - I am a career pivot from higher education into tech and have final round interviews for a DEI Coordinator role (which I'm super excited for).

Does anyone have any resources to help me prepare for this? Anything is greatly appreciated!

Definitely took the wrong job. I was offered a seriously competitive salary and great benefits to work at a well funded startup, which is great! Turns out the salary and benefits were meant as lowkey bribes to insure I worked at the company without actually doing any work. Every single suggestion I've made has been shut down and I've been ghosted for several meetings with the CEO. What should I do? Just leave?

I'm in desperate need of tips to get genuine buy in from our predominantly white, male senior leadership to create a more inclusive environment.

Hi all,

My boss makes jokes about me being from a different country whenever there is a work meeting or a gathering with coworkers, even though he knows where I am from. This usually occurs when I meet new work-related people or for example if I am in a situation that involves ethnic related subjects.

What is this? This is normal?

Stereotyping?
Racism?

The first time I ignored that, but now it has become a pattern and is bothering me now. I am south-American working in the UK.
