Are people literally that stupid or they just act stupid. (Had a BOGO coupon for up to $50. Manager started arguing that she cannot give me my free item since it was for $49.50 not $50.)
How bad would it be to tell my manager that I want to roll off because of personal reasons, but that I have a replacement? I’ve on the project for one week.
Remember back in the day when we had actual holiday parties? I mean ones that weren't paid for by employee's? Anyone's office doing that this year? Is it just me?

You all think rent will go down in light of the CDC updates and delta variant spread? Was about to sign a lease for September but thinking prices might fall if I wait
Hi! I’m a first-year associate working at a large regional firm. I attended a well-ranked, but regional law school and my grades weren’t stellar. School was never very motivating for me, and I put way more effort into internships and networking than my studies during law school. Luckily, I love to network and landed an awesome job at a big firm. Eventually, I’m hoping to work in-house. My question is this, will my grades always follow me? I’ve heard that with time and experience, not so much.
What do you guys feel about the Supreme Court’s decision in overturning Roe vs. Wade? It is still a hot topic in our office.

Any recs for new or under-the-radar finance blogs, books, programs, etc. to read/watch while isolating at home? I think I've read everything on my usuals list. Nothing to do but work more...
My assistant of 2 years is making mistakes and I have no hiring/firing power (partner does). But having to babysit her and also the partner and spend time to clean up these mistakes while also getting my job done has become unsustainable. I can’t have a firm talk with her because it’s an empty firmness. If I mention it to the partner - he tells me to have a firm talk with her, he doesn’t want to be the bad guy and he doesn’t get how bad it has been for me.
Can most military families really handle just picking up and moving to a different country, or is there a higher rate of divorce in the military?

I am the only immigrant with an accent in my office and it’s almost a daily thing now that my bosses/coworkers would explain terms to me that I already know. I’d often freeze when they do that because my first reaction is always confused. How do you talk about it with them after the fact especially when it seems like it’s not a big deal to them?

“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. But I am grateful to God that some are left.” This quote is from MLK in 1968 about how he sensed the movement was losing the battle for the soul of the nation.
I'm dealing with some toxic masculinity at work from someone that works on my team. Does anyone have advice on constructive ways to address this type of behavior?
Shortly after George Floyd's death, this video commentary by Kimberly Jones went viral. As a white person, it's hard for me to watch because of its powerful raw truthfulness. But I think every white person should sit down and watch this video because it clearly explains the frustrations and fears of Black people as well as the BLM movement and the difference between protesting, rioting, and looting.
Just thought this to be very thought provoking, challenging some unconscious bias and stereotypes.
I’m trying to cultivate discussion oriented DEI spaces, any topical themes that would make fun and engaging discussions?
Does anyone have experience with starting a Business/Employee Resource Group? I would really like to start one for Middle Eastern and North Africans as my company does not have one. There are many discussions that could benefit others and opportunities for intersectionality here. TIA!
My company has ERGs and one of them is pretty large and includes a lot of demographics. Within it, people are starting to kind of form their own subgroups (like based on office location or country-specific ethnicity). Does anyone have any thoughts around what would be appropriate for DEI practitioners to be aware of when serving these populations?
In honor of National Voter Registration Day, The New Yorker released the transcript of a previously unpublished interview with James Baldwin, who gave a first-hand account of "Freedom Day 1963," a Black voter-registration drive in Selma, Alabama. Baldwin's descriptions from that day are so vivid and detailed that you can feel the fear and anger of the event. If you have a couple of minutes, I highly recommend you read it.
How do you deal with your “mentor” being threatened by your performance and gatekeeping information from you? Then turning around and giving you shit for not knowing things… but they don’t tell you anything and there is no way for you to know. My learning and development is being hindered and I’ve felt this for a long time, but coworker just confirmed this is the case. Now that I know I’m not “crazy” for thinking this, how should I approach this?
Hey! I created a bowl for DEIB practitioners and employers/hiring managers who need contractors or candidates .
God imagine working DEI at Twitter 😂😅
hi! I work for an early-stage Fintech startup called Fennel; (www.fennel.com) focused on impact investing as well as shareholder activism and giving every day investors the tools they need to make informed and aligned decisions. I'm wondering what people think of this space and about ESG, given that there has been a lot of relevant media attention recently & would love to know if people make investment decisions based on factors like workforce equity, ceo pay, etc?
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?
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.
How do I transition from a Senior Executive Assistant role to Project Management? Ideally I would like to work in tech. How should I go about this? I currently work in the Real estate industry so it would be a totally new career path. The reason I want to move into tech is I feel like many of the companies I see have the same values as me (diversity & inclusion) and a good culture is so important to me.
Let’s just admit that Linked In is a terrible platform for WOC. It’s just another tool ppl use to discriminate. I had to delete my profile picture and lock all of my social media accounts just to get interviews.LinkedIn

It's all performative are you kidding. My entire job is a performance. I know I was hired as a token and a PR move and there isn't really anything I can do about it except for try to do real work anyway. Most of these companies are performing to maximize their bottom line, that's all.
You may want to find a new career or job.
None of the work I currently do is performative. Not to say I get full backing from the CEO but we can disagree peacefully. At the end of the day his lawyer tends to side with me and he ends up apologizing and approving my projects. Doing good work is hard work and I’m lucky to come in without a lot of red tape to build a good foundation for an equitable, diverse, inclusive, accessible, and belonging future.
The work being performative and the work having an impact are not mutually exclusive. I think getting past that false binary is one of the most important things to do to prevent burnout for DEI practitioners. That being said, we all need to do a better job of measuring our outcomes and holding ourselves (and our organizations) accountable to creating measurable change.
