My second job prospect in 6 months that fizzled bc they’re suddenly looking for women only. I’m all for more diversity and inclusion in adland, but isn’t that also gender discrimination and illegal?

Anyone know how many black people were on Cannes juries this year? I took a quick scan and was pretty appalled. Would love a diversity breakdown of the juries tbh.
Less than 2% of carpenters, plumbers, and electricians are women. Do you think there is a social justice component to increasing this, as it will likely reduce the total gender earning gap?
Has anyone seen firms hold successful, well-received diversity/cultural events? Especially firms with low diversity numbers but an interest in increasing awareness and education without patronizing.
Does anyone have book recommendations on gender bias/microagressions? For context: got into an argument with my dad bc he is moving and he said he doesn’t know about the mattress sizes “because that’s something a female who is into design and decoration would know” 🥴🤮 smh idk wtf a mattress has to do with design/decoration or women and this man needs education. thanks in advance

Anyone interested in someone's profile DM them directly.

My manager bullied me to the point that I had to start a workplace violence case with the ethics department and HR. Yesterday I received an invitation from her to the Women’s Diversity event. Lol.

Most important things to do in London? Traveling there for a quick vacation (5-6 days) and don’t want to overwhelm myself or try to do too much. Would be good to have the must see or must do from you brainy consultants. 🧐
Do people at your funds take Pat/Mat leave? Work at a UMM now and doesn't appear to be a thing which feels very different from mbb where people take 3+ months fully off.
What would you do ? 26 years old, work 9 to 9, work weekends, take an extra load because you can to get to the next promotion. Or work normal hours, workout, enjoy time with family, advance normally.
Opinions on Oliver Wyman and how they compare to MBB, B4, and other T2s? Have the potential to start the recruitment process there relatively easily but curious to hear thoughts of those actually in the industry. Thanks!
I’ve basically googled every “fun activities during COVID” article I can find and we’ve done almost every activity we can think of. My bf and I just need some ideas so we don’t get complacent and the weekend feels like a weekend. What have you guys been doing for fun with SOs/people you’re quarantined with?

My grandmother is in the hospital dying of COVID complications. My nanny came to work today and then I had to send her home (and to testing) at lunch today due to a fever. I’m really not feeling 2021.
United Platinum here - got an offer to pay ~$6k for upgrade to 1K. Thoughts on if it’s worth it? Already belong to Club (United Infinite) and have CLEAR credit through Amex Platinum. Still have 40 plus points from hitting Platinum last year. Unlikely to travel for business until late 2Q at earliest but have 2-3 transcontinental flights planned for summer and 1 transatlantic for fall. Maybe another 1-2 shorter trips this year as well. I imagine I’d use my extra plus points on all these.

What are the chances coronavirus relaxes audit deadlines? It’s hard to imagine taking the audit to completion given that all parties involved are working from home indefinitely.
Most companies offer 2 or 3 weeks vacation for new employees. Is it a big turn-off to hiring managers for a request of 4 weeks?

I think the standard 5 isn’t enough now that everyone has the chance of getting the flu and COVID.

Ladies, how would you have responded? I was hanging out with a friend and her boyfriend when he suddenly goes “Now that all companies practice gender equality what is the need for women specific conventions like Grace Hopper. What if there were male specific conventions/conferences like that? How would that make you feel? “ I was very drunk and not proud of how I responded. I basically told him off and recounted all the instances where I have been at a disadvantage because of my gender.

Any recs for most convenient Marriott/SPG hotel in SF? Spending 2 night there to be a typical tourist!
In case you never got to see the New York Times article about air quality in classrooms, I’m posting it here for you. It makes some very important points about creating the safest possible environment for students and teachers. 1. Open windows if it all possible 2. Place air purifier centrally 3. Don’t place fans in a way where the air is pointed at people Have a great year and keep yourself and your students safe! https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/02/26/science/reopen-schools-safety-ventilation.html ￼￼￼￼￼
