From my experience, the CEO/Global lead of an organization can talk about vision, and all the right messages needed, to make good copy and appease Wall Street and Twitter. But, it is the executives at the regional/practice/city level, who are supposed to implement those things. If they are not held accountable and support those goals nothing much changes. Look at what an organization announced 3-5 years ago about I&D, women in the workplace, pay equity, etc. then compare that to today. Did they achieve those goals or are they just “strongly supportive of XYZ”? That’s the corporate equivalent of “thoughts and prayers”.

Met Rich once when I was interviewing for a job at BCG. I obviously knew who he was but he came up to 3 of us who were waiting to start the interview, and he was the nicest person. He made a huge impression on me and probably was one of the main reasons why I wanted a job at BCG so much. Unfortunately, I didn't get the job but I'm still trying 🤣

Have met Rich in person multiple times. He’s a great guy, have immense respect for him. He joined our new hire training just to say hi and answer any questions. I visited his office multiple times, he welcomes people to come say hi. Sadly it doesn’t really impact your day to day experience much at the firm, but definitely respect the guy

I’m usually very cynical about most corporate things, especially promises on diversity. But have to say that Rich is very much genuine, and he means what he says. I haven’t had much interaction with him, but have talked to him a few times, and know others who know him very well.

Currently talking to recruiters for a new job and it is honestly such a turnoff when they talk too much about having a strong company culture and/or talking about making sure I'm a good fit culturally. For me that borders on culty and is a red flag. I would much rather hear from a recruiter that a workplace's "culture" is that they are accepting of all cultures, diversity, and personality types.
