Were you out at work or with your family first? Would also love to hear if it was your gender or your sexuality (or both) too.
Anyone in LA and have any tips/insights on how to get connected here? I moved here last year so still pretty new and have had limited opportunities to connect with others due to covid. It seems in both my dating life (F dating M) and trying to make friends (any gender!) people are very flaky. I’m wondering if there are places, groups, or just general tips I might not know of where people are more open and interested in making real connections. Any advice is welcome!
Our black inclusion network shared bios of the newly admitted black partners at the firm. 5 are black women, and none wear their natural hair. Totally respect everyone's right to wear their hair as they choose, but feel discouraged that natural hair still doesn't seem accepted. Has anyone else noticed little/no natural hair at the PPMD level? Do you plan on flouting the status quo as your career progresses?

I’m a partner at a small firm looking to lateral. Many firms that were beyond my reach a year ago are now eager to pick me up. Firms that I should be selling myself to are instead selling their firm to me. (And I am a very confident person; no imposter syndrome here.) Is there some larger diversity push going on? Is it hard for bigger firms to retain female partners? Curious what the market is.

I can't wait to hear the feedback on this one: Deloitte is nixing employee affinity groups for women and minorities—fixtures at many large companies—and replacing them with inclusion councils that have white men. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-07-19/deloitte-thinks-diversity-groups-are-pass
I’m officially sick of being burdened with solving diversity just because I am diverse, when leadership are only interested in paying lip service to it. Do your job. Set some targets.

Anyone here plans to retire on real estate? I’m torn between continuing investing or fully starting to save cash to invest in second property and so on.
