Got some dress shirts for Xmas that are not standard white or blue. Not a fan of diversity in my shirt color. Does anyone rock dress shirtst that aren't white or blue regularly?
What do you do to actively reinforce diversity if you are not a manager? POC do you feel frustrated by things that white people do in this effort?
How do you practice inclusion in your personal/professional lives? I can start if it helps, when trying to gather other perspectives I start with what I believe then go to someone the exact opposite.
Do partners of color actually give you work? There’s only a handful in my office and they are nice to me, even are candid about how white upper management is. But they’ve never thrown any work my way or even gotten to know me on a real professional level which is frustrating because they purport to support diversity initiatives, etc. and I’ve definitely tried to open a line of communication with each of them.
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?
Am I wrong in thinking it’s inappropriate to talk negatively about members of a specific gender or race at work? I’ve been hearing more of it recently.
Your thoughts on Inclusion champion?
Does working for Partners (particularly Boomers) of your respective ethnicity or diversity demographic feel like the ultimate haze? Do you feel like they haze you worse than your non-diverse peers?
Another win for diversity!
I have Moderna calls that expire on October 15 with a strike price of $300. Should I sell before S&P 500 inclusion and buy back in?
thoughts on this inclusion thing? As a minority it seems to be a publicity stunt... for the pictures and social media posts... Just confused about why we are still talking about what needs to get done
Someone last week asked about the authenticity of Diversity initiatives at work. Interesting piece from NY Times http://mobile.nytimes.com/2016/12/17/public-editor/new-york-times-diversity-liz-spayd-public-editor.html?referer=https://t.co/7Xo5N2j97t
Everyone: We asked for diversity and visible minorities in this video. This edit shows 90% whites dudes... The producer: The guy in the first shot is latino and there’s also an Irishman and an Australian bro at the end 😑
Fam— would anyone be interested in a Glassdoor for black people? i.e anonymized reviews of companies from POCs. I think it would be massively helpful in gauging the diversity and inclusivity of a company outside polished recruitment processes and would publicly hold companies accountable. Thoughts?
I am a POC and have enjoyed the diversity of colleagues that I have met in consulting so far. When I look at websites of PE firms, I see primarily white men from Associate all the way to Managing Director level. Why do you think there are these structural differences? Do PE firms not believe as much in diversity of thoughts/lived experiences? Do you think that consulting would provide more advancement opportunities than PE does for a POC, given the structural differences?
Hi everyone! I'm looking to leave the consulting world but don't know where to start. I live in the DMV so everything is government and/government consulting. I'm looking for a place that has an international presence that will help me expand my world view. Also looking for a place where I feel that the intersection of my race and gender is a welcoming attribute....done with the microaggressive attitudes that leads to psychological torture the consulting world has to offer.
Anyone a black inclusion network lead for D&I?
Anyone feel like it’s gender wars in the consulting bowl right now? I know we’ve linked to a couple of them but they just keep coming and the loudness of it is frightening

PwC Director comp/Advisory/Technology Consulting/High cost city - What is the range of director compensation for external hires?
I think I'm mentally checking out of work. All the pursuits I was leading (and which were building my case for promotion to manager) are falling through either because of clients having put everything on hold or because the requirements necessitating the work are being waived... my jaw has been locked now for 2 days 😬
Is 401k matching immediately vested at Accenture? Just got matching this July 1 and can't find that detail anywhere.
A friend was told their firm will cut ties EOY if certain things don’t improve. Friend had planned to quit in the next year anyway (to start their own business), so there is no real incentive to bend over backwards. Friend’s goal is to keep the income for a little longer, but to minimize conflict / headaches. What’s the best move here? Wait until EOY and take the severance? Give 6 / 9 / 12 months’ notice now? Is there such a thing as too much notice? Could too much notice backfire?
Koi bhi company, koi bhi role chalega.....bas kuch mahine Notice Period ka sukh lena hai 😆🤣
I’ve been getting a lot of emails and now LinkedIn messages from M7 schools about applying to their programs. That doesn’t mean I actually have a good chance of getting in right? Need to check my ego lol
Growing tired of Delta. Good chance to make Diamond for next year, contemplating switching to United. Can't decide if I want to just yet. Maybe next year. Anyone done this before?
Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.

🐟... how do you help change team culture from HIERARCHY to team collaboration? Especially when the “leadership” on the team thinks the answer is to dictate improvement to non leadership
Two strangers are bickering on my 6 am flight. "I saw you cut!" and "You were zone 2, I was zone 1!" were fired. All right, fellow plane prisoners 🍿
What’re good ways to make more gay friends in the ATL area? Anyone a part of any good organizations, clubs, etc? Seems like everyone on apps just wants to hookup 🤷🏼♂️
Google Classroom and Zoom was on the fritz all morning. Lord, I have never worked so fast at multitasking of talking to a few students on Zoom, the rest of the students through Go Guardian, texting parents through ClassDojo, and calling parents. I was only able to teach math and science 🤣
How many of you in SpEd are Multiple Disability teachers with the lowest functioning population on Virtual teaching using the Canvas platform and the Enhanced Learning Program that is within the Canvas Platform? I have started putting things in place today and am finding it to be easier to get into it and follow the process with suggestions for improvements and leveled activities for the individual students. I have a lot to learn in a small increment of time. Would love to team up 🎓
