I’m currently in the wealth management field and has been there for the last three years. I always wanted to try different industry like tech, automotive or renewable energy but I am bit scared to start from the scratch again. I am currently at slightly above 100k per year and switching to other industry would most likely mean lower pay entry level job. Any advice on that matter ?

A VP in my team always reminds me that “I’m LUCKY to be 1. a woman 2. Black and 3. Young” every time we go out for team drinks (In comparison to white men who don’t ticket the diversity box).......🙃

I’ll go first. My first memory of the police was of having my rights violated and being denied medical care after a traumatic brain injury. I was 12.
My husband’s was the police putting a gun in his mom’s face.
Details in first comment.
What are practical ways we can navigate Black tax? …Without going to extremes of completely cutting off folks and not giving away the house.

On a call with my new team and thought I was on mute. Out loud I set a reminder on my phone “remind me of the Erykah Badu Jill Scott battle on Instagram on blah blah”. Dead silence on the phone. TGIF!
Something completely out of the blue has happened to me. I just onboarded with a company on Monday. I accepted the role three weeks ago after interviewing with and considering three other companies—- one of which was FAANG. I never heard back from FAANG and assumed I didn’t get it, until today. They called me and made me an offer. I really, really want to take the job, but I just started with my new company four days ago and on top of it negotiated a higher salary.

McKinsey hires black people? Honestly though they only cared about Asian and (White) non-American "diversity." Progress? 🤔
It just came to my attention that the AA lady on my team is trying to sabotage my position by trying to portray me as incompetent to our white co workers. We are only 2 black people on the team and the only reason am still on is because the white believe in me more than the other black person on the team.
Anyone feel awkward about the money they make? I don’t boast and most of my friends don’t even know what I do. Just bought a new house and the reaction is really uncomfortable when ppl come over...
If you live in the north side of Chicago it can be hard to find a solid black barber shop. Just wanted to do a quick shout out to a spot called Urbane Blades, right in River North/Old Town.
People are using deepfake technology to pose as someone else in job interviews, the FBI said.
They seem to focus on IT roles that would grant them access to sensitive data, the agency said.
What's new in the FBI's Tuesday announcement is the use of AI-powered deepfake technology to help people get hired. The FBI did not say how many incidents it has recorded.

Best consulting firms for real inclusion?
This may not be the right time but can the leader of this bowl set up a zoom meeting where the African immigrant and African American can have an open and honest panel discussion in a respectful way?
Apparently there is a lot of differences and misunderstanding between us and this could be a step forward.
We are all black and have to come together and have one voice. Let's fix each other instead of fighting each other.
Let me know your thoughts.
Tired of hearing this from black prople AND white people. Blackness can take many forms, we are not a monolith
Tomorrow is my last day and I am mentally checked out. My team is trying to bombard me with last minute work and questions that they know will be very hard to get done without me.
I gave two weeks notice already and did a knowledge transfer. This ask would be starting something completely new. Realistically it would take probably til 2am or 3am in the morning to complete. I have already made up in my mind that I am going to respectfully decline, but what would y’all do?
