Haven’t taken a nice vacation in a while. What’s a good place (domestic or international) to plan a 7-10 day trip? Like hiking, scenic views, diversity in food options, etc. Was thinking Torres Del Paine national park
Hi! Welcome! What are your positions in an inclusion classroom? How’s it been going so far this year?
What’s the advantage of investing in precious metals ? What precious metals have you invested on and why ? Trying to diversity my portfolio
I’m a woman in my mid 20s and constantly face situations where people outside of cyber (still within the company) that I’m dealing with (older men in particular) who always push back against my cyber/technical recommendations even with managers cc’d. I studied, earned certs, and worked hard to get to where I am. Is it bc of my gender and age? In all honesty, I’ve written recommendations that male counterparts voiced in the past that had ZERO pushbacks.
Have you ever had a wonderful mentor (either male/ female /gender fluid) how do(did) you show your appreciation for them taking the time to guide you?
It’s 2020, are men still expected to pay on the first date or is it acceptable to split 50-50? Not trying to start a whole debate on modern gender dynamics, I just need practical advice.
Have there been discussions about racial bias and ways improve diversity and inclusion at work? Would hope there have been at least a few initiatives
I’m Team TERF
Of course Bezos tapped another cis-gender White male as his successor...why would we expect otherwise?
We spout gender equality, but often ask women to do things men don't get asked to do. From organizing lunches/events at work (pre-Rona), to babysitting our siblings because we are girls with motherly insticts. It is generally expected that women do certain things that are "for the good of the community" which is just unpaid work for no praise. Let's change this. Let's start the change at home and it will translate elsewhere If you won't ask your son to do it, don't ask your daughter to do it.
WARNING: Several firms have announced that diversity numbers are now part of executive performance metrics. If this app is a gauge, White people and Asians are ANGRY about this. This could translate into more workplace hostility and acts of sabotage from worker bees and middle management for Black people.
I am trying flexible seating for the 1st time this year, and I feel like kids are just sitting with their friends and segregating themselves by gender. For those who do flexible seating, how do you
Say you want to use real patients in your creative, but there’s not a lot of diversity among them. What would you do?
"Ah, a question about gender equality. I'll refer that to the only woman at this table, an aggressively smiley thin blond white lady of no discernable age, to tell you how great we're doing"
How do you deal with non-accepting family members? I don’t make it a thing, but I’ve been advised to take off my tie and change into more feminine clothing around them. I am okay with not discussing my personal life, but I don’t feel comfortable changing my dress. So I just don’t keep in contact with those relatives. A therapist told me that I am not secure in my gender identity if I am not willing to take off a tie and show compassion to a family member who would be upset by it? Am I selfish?
At your firm, how would you say internal initiatives/ ENGs are split by gender? Flipping through some of ours, I’m seeing the majority are women. How can we get men more involved?
New York. All talk and no action here when it comes to actual inclusion and not cosmetic efforts.
Does your gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, or other defining (lack of a better word) class impact your experience in practice? (Curious about good and bad experiences we can all learn from)
Does anyone have a diversity focused recruiter that they like? I’m tired of the lip service that my current employer pays to diversity and inclusion but don’t want to jump right over to somewhere worse. Thoughts?
I have my first interview with McKinsey coming up, from the practice cases on the website it seems like their case structure is quite standardized. I am particularly struggling with the initial case structure, the solutions are always very targeted and specific. I guess Victor Cheng‘s LOMS ruined me, because I feel like “product“ “company” “competitors” is just not going to cut it... any advice how to become better at MECE and structuring frameworks?
Coach just told me I'm getting promoted to senior this year 😊 I'm looking for an exit with my senior title now. Where do I start
Has anyone transitioned from Deloitte to McKinsey as a non-MBA masters? How did you make the transition? How is the culture different? What are the pros/cons?
Can you cash your vacation before you quit?
Does anyone at PwC know when we get our shit bonus payout? Sept 29 or Oct 13? Trying to plan my departure.
People who have their CPA’s and signed up in Alaska, please help me. For the verification of license for cpa supervisor form, do I have to send the form to my supervising CPA’s state board, and then send it to the main CPA exam services location? I swear they intentionally make this shit more complicated than it needs to be
To the people investing in Shiba and Doge and a number of other shitty Alts. Find a project with true application. $LINK is the most undervalued coin under $15B market cap. They’re changing the game. https://www.ap.org/press-releases/2021/ap-chainlink-to-bring-trusted-data-onto-leading-blockchains
Haven't been sleeping well. It's 3am & I'm wide awake. I know it's anxiety. Any advise? Been worried about work, interviewing for jobs, and trying to focus on family. Things actually seem good, but...
Anybody else sometimes feel like they're the only imperfect one at work in a sea of perfection? Thoughts on how to combat that?
Is it worth staying at aloft for double points? Or does double aloft points = normal Westin or W points?
What are your thoughts on Adcolor Futures? Have you heard of it? Is it worth applying to?
I am a beginner DA user and trying to gain experience. I am trying to do a project on ESG for fun, and having some difficulty coming up with a hypothesis. Want to pick your brains and see if I can get started. I have data about CO2 emisiones, electricity usage, air quality, and that’s pretty much it. Using alteryx and powerbi (to visualize results) as I don’t have any other programs. Thanks so much!
I have to leave tomorrow morning for a biz trip and my 3 year old just asked, “Daddy can I go to San Francisco with you?” 💔 How do you work/life balance THAT?
On a project doing a lot of the communication, PowerPoints and helping out with the deliverables. But how do I get the technical experience is it just through experience and osmosis?
