I understand why … but I don’t understand why teaching all sides of history is such an issue. Don’t we want to stay away from the mistakes of the past…

This is not critical race theory. I understand the point of the cartoon but it’s stupid to use labels like CRT in this way.

This is just history. Why is merely talking about black people now considered “critical race theory”?

Is anybody objecting to teaching objective, historical fact? Sidenote, the statistic in the cartoon looks misleading. No idea what the right number is, but that's a fairly meaningless metric. Some suburbs may be 99% white. I'm sure it's hard to track approval rate by "race," but that would be more helpful. Sorry, the consultant in me just couldn't ignore that.

That's the hope. My kids are so much more aware than I was. They have absorbed a ton from TikTok. For better or worse, the world is smaller with fewer boundaries, and hopefully that trend continues. We will have to combat nationalism and xenophobia to continue to make progress. Sadly, I'm not optimistic about all geographies in the US. State governments habe too much power to maintain the status quo. The fact that it's socially acceptable to talk about immigrants as if they're some kind of disease makes me sick. Somehow we need to find a way to combat the myths of individualism and self-reliance. Whether we like it or not, we are a community and we will increasingly interact as the world continues to shrink.

I’m starting to think more and more people are just getting confused and I blame the media - both right and left media. CRT is not talking about historical wrongs done to black people. I won’t even go into what CRT is but what people have issue with is any ideology that would say you are X because your skin color is Y.

TL did you read the fact check? It says they weren’t part of required training but that it couldn’t be corroborated one way or the other. It also said these were authentic slides from a DEI training, which is bad enough whether Coca Cola used them or not.

Any tips how to join MBB as experienced hire?

Damn. Was lucky enough to land an interview. The interview went numerous rounds, it was super positive, so then I decided I would be 100% honest about something I wasn’t good at, in hopes of being clear that I was ready to grow. Then I got ghosted, and I think it’s because of the said honesty. Feeling low and stupid for ever admitting a “fault” in an interview instead of just telling them that I’m perfect.

Noticed a small stylistic mistake on my resume after applying to MBB. If I update the resume immediately after on my profile, will my previous applications be updated when viewed by the hiring team? Ty McKinsey BCG Bain

I needed some advise. This is my last attempt on H1-B lottery. I was planning on initiating my H1b lottery from an outside consultancy as well along with my current employer so that I have better chances. I wanted to check if that is legal and I can have multiple H1b filings from different employers? Thanks.

If given the option to transfer to TAS internally from Audit (as S2 with CPA) would you all take it or recommend going external with RSM?

US fish here. Considering applying for an MBA internationally (INSEAD, LBS, HEC) as a way to pivot to working in the EU. I don’t have a visa so would need sponsorship, does this seem like it would be a possible gateway to getting to work in Europe? Or should I just try to apply for jobs instead. 2 YOE in strategy consulting
