What are some racial/gender/age based micro aggressions you’ve experienced in the workplace?
Hi all, I’m one of the two BIPOC at an ad agency and I’m one of the first WOC ever hired at the agency. We’ve recently started to have diversity and inclusion trainings, and some of those trainings have been emotionally draining for me. Wondering if somebody has ever been in a similar situation and how you’ve mentally prepared for it?
Is there a diversity and inclusion board? Interested in doing some market intelligence to understand how other companies are retaining diverse talent at all levels. Or if there are external@forums let me know, many thanks!
Has anyone bought/ done the HRCI Certificate in Diversity and Inclusion in HR Management? I already have my PHR, but I’m looking to gain more knowledge/skills and beef up my resume. Is it worth doing? The course is $239 and you get 12 Recert credits with it.

McKinsey & Company As a leader in cyber, one of my aspirations is to increase the diversity of any organization that I am a part of.
For example…When I was in Big4, I referred several diverse candidates who are thriving & now, at McKinsey & Company, I set a personal goal to refer 1 diverse candidate, especially in (but not necessarily exclusive to) cyber/tech/IT, for every month of my tenure.

Has anyone ever been in a mostly platonic relationship? I don’t like to label myself much, but I don’t really like intimacy and don’t really like romance. Some people would say I’m asexual/aromantic, but unless that too is a spectrum, I don’t think I fit squarely into that group. As I get older, I’m realizing I’m feeling very lonely. It would be nice to find someone, but have it be platonic (any gender/sex). It’s weird, I know. It’s hard to articulate as well. Can anyone relate? 😭😭
Help! I’m hiring, and it’s down to 2 candidates. One is not as qualified, would require a lot of training, a great fit culturally and brings diversity to the agency. The other is more qualified, still a great fit culturally and wouldn’t require as much training, they were more prepared and I could put them in front of the client tomorrow, but they are non-BIPOC. Both are in the same range salary wise, and my team is SUPER small. Both are great fits, and I am torn. Advice? Please?
Anyone ever pivoted from Sales to working in D&I? I’m 3 years out of college and realized I’m not super passionate about Sales. The last time I was really happy doing “work” was in college when I took an active role in Equity, Diversity and Inclusion related events/issues. What roles are there for entry level but some prior experience?
What I see is people hiring people they get along with. I think they all “want diversity” but when they gel with their homeboy that’s been recommended by another homeboy in an interview, it’s (cont)
i recently accepted a job at an agency that is very white. prior to 2020, in typical industry fashion, they were talking the diversity talk, had DEI committees, etc, but all white leadership and a huge turnover of POC talent.
2020–>now, it seems like they’re ready to walk the walk. they publicly published their numbers, are actively recruiting POCs, etc. but leadership is still white, as is the majority of the agency. sure, change doesn’t happen overnight... but should i stick it out or run?

An executive contact of mine has agreed to provide a letter of recommendation to support an application I’m about to hand in. How do I go about: do I draft the letter and provide it to him as a suggestion - or do I leave it up to him to create the letter? I see pros and cons for both options, so would be curious about your best practice experience.

Is the generalist track the core consulting track for McKinsey? As I am looking at roles, I want to make sure I am staying on the traditional track.
To generalist consultants who don't really have an area they are passionate about, do you fake interest in a particular area just to not be known as jack of all trades?
It seems that everytime I (4 YOE) try to connect to a partner/senior leader, they tend to drill down into which area I am interested in, when the truth is I am interested in just about anything as long as it pays well and looks good on my CV.
Constructive advice only please
