How do I reach more BIPOC designers? Let me start off by saying I identify as Latinx and I am not trying to tokenize anyone or to discriminate against white candidates. I’m looking to add to our design team and I’ve been really trying to add diversity to our company. Anytime we put out the word we’re looking for more senior design roles the majority of candidates are white males. I don’t want to shut talent out, I just want to make sure our opportunities are seen.
￼I am currently unemployed but I am very curious about everyone’s company signature having she/her or he/him or they displayed. Are companies forcing people to write the pronouns you need to choose? I honestly never understood why somebody that wasn’t in the LGBTQ community would ￼specify￼￼, and I know people are doing it to show support but if I started working again I don’t think I would want to put that in my signature. It seems political. What are your thoughts? ￼
Once, a M friend said "men are stronger than women, I could dominate you right now" and at the moment I didn't know what to say cause he was in fact bigger and stronger than me. But this is something that bothers me still... I think people in general, regardless of gender, have different abilities and it is not a matter of comparing but rather understanding how best to use them, for yourself and for the society. It pisses me off to know ppl can think like this, and he is actually a good friend
How would you make the business case for adding more diversity to the workforce. I think we take it as a given that people will support this, but some people need to see $$ and #s to be moved.
I confess that this interaction I had @ a recent camping trip w/ my husband, son, two dogs was VERY confusing: I was doing a training session w/my dogs when an older white man stopped what he was doing to watch us. We trained for ~15 minutes. At the end of the training session, the man asks loudly “WHO trained your dogs?” At first I couldn’t process what he asked. I froze. He repeated the question. I curtsied dramatically & smiled. Unconscious race/gender bias? How would you respond?
Debating between purchasing a house in Powder Springs vs Woodstock area. We are very much inclined towards diversity which includes some desi crowd as well. Opinions about these two areas will be greatly appreciated. TIA!
A lot of companies put out ads or talked about policy or internal changes in response to the BLM movement. I’m wondering if, beyond the immediate ads and statements that were released this actually continued. What are some things your agency has done… or could do to make a real impact in the realm of Diversity, equity and inclusions (DEI).
Thought: When you see diversity of skin color as the most critical factor you miss out of diversity of experience and ideas. Quite often these overlap, but there are a lot of people out there like JD Vance who come from poor white roots, but because of their skin color they’re assumed to have some magical privilege bestowed upon them by society. Likewise, wealthy people of color are lumped in with their less affluent counterparts. We’re so quick to look at skin color and see the sum (cont’d)
PwC diversity training for managers+ focused on staffing teams by picking diverse gender,race,etc. Equality of outcome vs equality of opportunity is not discussed. Equity, not equality, is the mandate
Call it “diversity theater”: the many PR rituals and bureaucracies obscuring the line between the value of diversity and how companies actually treat their marginalized employees trying to make a change.
I don’t get these gender reveal parties. If it’s a boy they are happy, if it’s a girl they are happy. Just get a party and be happy ... lol
How are your “support functions” (HR, marketing, finance, etc) treated? We are second class citizens, with less: training, growth opportunities, inclusion in firm leadership calls/gatherings, etc.
Was at an event recently. Seems like advertising really only cares about diversity as it applies to white women. I think this industry wants to stay white.
Minority friends (e.g. Ethnicity, gender, sexuality,etc) Microaggressions you experience weekly?
Anyone in Deloitte Strategy and Analytics that could give me a referral? Top performer in my current practice but want to leave due to the lack of diversity at the management level.
For anyone buying for one - how much do you spend on groceries each week (on average)? Pls age and gender too
Is there a woman out there who is bothered by someone addressing a group as “”you guys.” Your opinion is the one that matters.
Accenture, BCG, Deloitte & E&Y all signed up to be in the consortium for eliminating the gender pay gap. All the sudden I'm feeling the urge to switch firms!
Hi all! For an experienced hire as a Human Capital Consultant at Deloitte, what should I expect the salary/sign-on bonus to be at a MCOL city? I have approx. 3.5 YOE (non-consulting), MBA and MS degree (non target school) and also SHRM certified (which is probably irrelevant for the role but thought I’d share anyways). Already did my research but the range is kind of all over the place for experienced hires so just want to have a ballpark. Thanks!
Does anyone have any tricks to make themselves look older? When I'm clean shaven I'm a baby face 👶🏼
Hi folks - Any recommendations for a good immigration lawyer? Looking for some guidance on my wife’s OPT/H4/EAD
New employer just filed H1B transfer (Change of Employer). Immigration says I can start immediately and not have to wait for receipt notice or approval. I honestly don't foresee any reason for a denial and plan to give notice today to start in 3weeks. Any thoughts? Risky to start before receipt notice / approval? Thanks!
I'm an analytics consultant looking to get more into data science work. I'm interested in applying to BCG since I heard good things about the work they are doing.
Had been working with an American client for last 2 years.. great rapport and work life balance. Just moved to a new project with a desi client and can immediately tell the difference.. my American client hardly ever had post 6 pm requests.. my desi client texts/calls after 6 regularly and doesn't even think its an intrusion.. anyone else experience this?
The more pedestrian your intellect, the better fit you are at D Heard of a colleague with an FRM charter being laid off today. Overall excellent person. And you won't believe who they promote year after year.. the character, curiosity and quality of the lifers Don't join this firm if you for a love of learning and to be inspired. Join if you are a middling who wants a good brand to hack ahead in life and rise above your station

Anyone have any insight into the singles scene in FLL? Especially compared to NYC (love here). Never been thrilled with MIA based on my visits, and hoping FLL may be a bit more down to earth. 30s/M
Anyone here work at fundrise? Been working at a REIT and looking to pivot. Lots of job openings at fundrise have caught my attention but not sure which group I’d be the best fit.
Presenting gives me panic attacks, blood pressure through the roof and intense nausea. Is this normal? I sound just fine when presenting, but need a script for the most part lest I forget half the important points. Otherwise I'm an extrovert and well spoken when chatting with people in a social environment.
What’re the chances of your current company finding out your applying? I’m still relatively new but wanna just test the waters a bit
What would you consider to be fair / compelling comp if you’re leaving consulting 5 years post b-school? Obviously it depends on a million things (firm, industry, wlb, geography, etc.), but just interested to hear a range of responses from this group!
Trump suspended immigration temporarily to US!
These are the threads we should frame and hang in all agency lobbies instead! "Just got laid off. Just found out I’m pregnant. Someone say it’s going to be okay, because that seem..." See full post https://joinfishbowl.com/post_2r395j
