Queer Gals & Non-Binary Pals (And More!)

I love the name of this group but also wish it was “out and about”. But also I know that a lot of us aren’t out to the world yet (including myself)

It’s a journey! Even once you’re out! Presentation, pronouns, showing up for your community. I’ve been out for years and my team loves my girlfriend, and just last night we had a whole conversation about if my pants + chelsea boots outfit was too queer for a client meeting 🤷🏽‍♀️ you’ve got this and don’t be afraid to reach out to friends/mentors!

Yup, same. I’m still figuring out what non-binary means for me and how I want to express myself

Agreed. Coming out at work is going to be an adventure and a half...

Good point! Always an ever-evolving journey to find what ways you would like to express yourself. 😊

Any good samples on how to represent project experience on your resume? Also, how much information did you divulge i.e. if I say my client was a $260B technology company, is that fine?

Starting the process for my medical leave. The application asked for “cause of illness/injury” and has a character limit. Does “toxic work environment” suffice? I honestly don’t know what’s the best

Anyone ever switch from B4 Advisory to a midsize or local CPA firm to work in external audit? What was your experience? Looking for a better work-life balance, but concerned about taking a pay cut.

Thoughts on Dentsu Aegis? I've received an offer for a role (promotion) and thinking about whether it is a sound move - especially in this environment. They went through furloughs and pay cuts in April due to COVID. I'd be making the move from EY which is a great company to work with - but there is such a long line up to get a promotion, and for roles I've interviewed for internally I get the good ole - you were awesome and it was rly close, but someone was just a better fit.

I recently got laid off and my previous firm just reached out to me to inform me about a client whose rate was too late on a commercial level but they might be interested in me to work as a contractor

Anyone ever experienced gaslighting at their workplace? I feel like it happens a fair bit in consulting (dangling carrots for promotion and raises, inconsistent feedback, etc.) but not sure if it’s talked about - could just be my negative experiences but curious to hear others thoughts.

I was so hoping the week leading up to my maternity leave would be filled with tying up loose ends, administrative stuff, etc. Instead, it has morphed into a complete dumpster fire due to COVID.
