How do you list your consulting extracurricular activities on your resume? Like being a part of a diversity council, accomplishments for internal initiatives, etc. Been out of college for 1.5 years and my resume needs an update.
"At Accenture we have an unwavering commitment to equality, inclusion and diversity. We have zero tolerance for hatred, bigotry and racism of any kind." -Julie Sweet
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?
Team starting a “diversity group” and looking for inspiration on how to engage/ collaborate a more inclusive work environment.
Curious to hear real examples. Have you/ coworkers faced discrimination in subtle OR outward manners based on gender, being LGBT? How does this affect your voice/ ability to perform to your fullest?
Just got a new job and feeling like the “diversity hire.” Everyone else is white or Indian and in the town halls they keep talking about upping Diversity and Inclusion targets to include more Female and Black/Latino individuals.
Did you know? “Women receive ‘negative personality criticism’, such as being called bossy or told to ‘watch their tone’ in around 75% of performance reviews. Men, on the other hand, rarely do.” From https://cultureplusconsulting.com/2018/03/10/gender-bias-work-assertiveness-double-bind/
On a call with the CEO talking about diversity and they compare a person with tattoos experiencing prejudice in the office to Black people colleague experiences... Meanwhile last I checked, a tattoo was a choice and removable. Also depending on placement, you can’t see it.
Have about $50K to invest. Mostly sitting in checking/ online savings accounts. Where to put the money? Would like to diversity. Average risk tolerance.
How’s the level of pay gap caused by gender in professional services such as consulting?
Have you been seeing any creativity lately around gender inequity, child abuse, LGBTQ, PETA, guns rights, or other cause related marketing? Why not? Because none of them are trending at the moment?

Looking to connect with Schwarzman Scholars working at MBBOW or in PE. My background: Graduated a few years back, working in BCG back office. Have a significant amount of development sector experience, with a focus on financial inclusion and social inclusion. TIA!
Our industry needs to change the way it does recruiting. We make it impossible for people to apply directly to agencies. Relying on employee referrals gets good "culture fits" at the cost of diversity
For any POC creatives, have you ever had to explain to a recruiter why you're considered a diversity candidate? This was the first time I felt like I had to prove my diversity/minority background.
I’m still trying to process seeing an agency exec well known for dismissing and ignoring POC held up as an exemplary diversity champion for women at the 3% Conference.
I have an outlook folder named 'crap’ to auto route useless communications from certain people/ groups. That list is now 20+. I guess it’s time to create ‘crap 2’ for diversity
I am fed up of my male cw partner who'd only write scripts involving male characters even though I am constantly telling him that we need to be mindful of diversity and inclusion. What should I do??
I was having IT issues when my firm migrated to Microsoft teams. I was getting help and they took control to do their trouble shooting. After fixing the issue, he suddenly video called himself to test it all works. I was laying in bed naked when the cam turned on 💀
Is anyone a virtual consultant? I’m looking for a 100% remote gig. Not sure how well these opportunities exist currently
When asked for what salary I’m expecting for an AAE or Junior Strategist position, what is a reasonable number in NY?
For those in senior positions- how are you not constantly worried about the success of your work? There’s so many things that can affect P&L that are out of your control, how do you stay calm and not feel like you’re going to get fired as soon as growth slows?
How cautious are people actually being during coronavirus? I’ll make a poll in the comments, but is there any data on stay at home compliance?
CSR: am I the only one planning on getting the 100k bonus then downgrading to CSP to redeem the remainder of the pro-rated $450 fee?
Life of non-immigrants depend on the Visa they hold and it’s so sad these companies don’t have a team where we can speak to someone immediately in case of a visa emergency situation . In EY you need to submit a form and wait for days together to get a reply from a human. Mean time you would have gone through 5 anxiety attacks.
Currently a first year big 4 audit associate who does not want to stay in public accounting and wants to be able to teach part-time at a community college/university. I have a Bachelor’s Degree and will have my CPA license soon. Since these schools typically require a Master’s to teach, is it dumb to get a Master’s in Accounting? I don’t have much interest in other subjects for graduate school.
With so many new faces as Community Leaders, how do people feel about doing a zoom Happy Hour next Thursday? This will give everyone a chance to get to know each other, ask me or our CEO whatever is on your mind, and generally connect. Thinking like 730 or 8 eastern for our west coasters?
Do you think an MBA is worth it?
Anyone able to share any info on Strategy & Planning jobs at Uber (e.g. hours, comp, culture)?
Where do y’all see the future of M7 going? In the next 20-30 years. Will there still be an M7 or will MBAs be obsolete as more and more elite companies do direct promotion? Will HSW still exist or will the value prop of a brand name be diminished a ton with the continuous rise of tech/AI, etc?
I’ve been creating my pre-recorded video lectures using Screencastify since the beginning of the school year without any issues. However, right before the holiday break my students started experiencing issues where the screen would go completely black in the middle of a video. Has anyone experienced this before? I’m wondering if it might have to do with the program becoming overburdened by the volume of videos being created on the platform.
Me as a new hire : *panicked I was going to be fired at any moment.* Me 4 years into this : Maybe if they fired me, it wouldn’t be that bad of a thing for my life 🤣😂.
Curious about how many hours plaintiffs litigation attorneys work on average per week. I’m a defense attorney and billable hours don’t make for the best work life balance. Thanks in advance.
Why does everyone put Tech / FAANG on such a pedestal, claiming it’s better than MBB. Sure, the comp and WLB may be better, but you won’t be doing as meaningful and impactful work e.g. Govt Covid response, Gates foundation projects, industry defining projects in the space of a few months etc
