am i a token minority?

I put in my two weeks at my job b/c i’m tired of the lack of teaming and development.

My direct team was like “ok” (no surprise, i don’t think they like me either), but the rest of the department was like “what no, you’re a rockstar with a big future here. don’t leave”

i’m good at my job but i’m not irreplaceable so i think this has to be because i’m a minority woman that they want to make a token.

anyone else feel like this has happened to them?

HR is always going to ask you to stay unless you are terrible. I doubt it has anything to do with race or gender… just everyone is short staffed.

Sure it’s possible, but not the likely scenario. I threatened to leave for another job offer a few months ago and it was the same. Team didn’t care because I am replaceable but HR offered me more money and begged me to stay. That’s just how it goes. It affects the company as a whole more. I’ve worked with many people of different races and ethnicities and have never seen someone disliked because of their race or ethnicity.

Something similar? I received more praise when I put in my two weeks then I had since my last promotion. I definitely feel like the token minority when I look at my direct team. And skill development wasn’t in the books for me until next year, so I left.

Went for a hair cut with a new person because my usual stylist no longer does hair. This was the first time with the new girl, but I've been going to the same place for years. It's been a while and I had tons of split ends & asked for a 4 inch trim to get it back to healthy. My hair is long, to my waist and usually I stand during cuts. She said no need.
When she was done, I should have known something was weird because I had to ask for the mirror to see the back. She cut 18 inches off.

Just moved to NYC - how to meet new people / make friends?

I’ve been dating a guy for 3 years and we are living together. He is accountable, funny and supporting and treats me well. He takes our relationship seriously. But there are some things that I can’t get over. While we can have fun together, I’ve been feeling that we don’t connect on a deeper level. A lot of times, we care about different things and aren’t in sync with each other on a lot of topics, which pulled triggers to a lot of our fights...

I assured them that it’s a casual meet and greet and that I would do my best to translate but they still seem very dodgy on this. Any advice on how I can help them ease into this?
