NYC vs Chicago - considering moving out of NYC (obvious reasons :-)), though we love the city and like diversity and energy for our kids to grow up (no suburbs). Any thoughts/experience on Chicago?
I’m bored. Let’s matchmake. Age + gender: Your Profession: Profession you want to date: What are you offering:
"I have no idea what it's like to have my life circumstances affected by my race or gender but listen up because I've got a really important take about discrimination"
I know I want a job change but not sure to what. I actually enjoy strategy and consulting and want to make good money. I can learn and get interested in just about anything and I like diversity in my work. That’s all I’ve got so far. What else do you all consider in a job move?
Does working for Partners (particularly Boomers) of your respective ethnicity or diversity demographic feel like the ultimate haze? Do you feel like they haze you worse than your non-diverse peers?
I've gotten at least 3 'final reminders' from HR to complete the Self ID survey. Can't help but feel it's because of my last name...sorry, not gonna be a diversity box for you to check.
I love this (queer-positive comic creators really bring so much joy to the world) ☺️ The same goes for gender!
McKinsey has 42 new "affinity" APs... Of which only 3.5 are east Asian... Of which 1 is female. Ughh. McK won't include Asians in affinity week (recruiting events) and we're not included as an an option on the application... But they want to celebrate the 9 south Asian and 3.5 East Asian APs to get credit for dIvErSiTy eFfOrTs 🙄
Anyone can share insights about the Diversity Rotational Program at FTI consulting? Recruiter reached out and I’m curious to see what are the type of projects, culture and growth opportunities. Thanks so much 🙏
Buy the rumor, sell the news. This age old saying sticks in my mind with Tesla and upcoming earnings. Do I hold though (S&P inclusion could hold price steady/up) or try to play/buy back in if any major 5%+ dips (as institutions sell to lock in profits). Holding until at least Earnings July 22nd atm
What is the legal ratio of adults:students in an ECSE inclusion setting? In a reverse mainstream setting? Are Title I PreK classrooms required to have a para and teacher? What is the ratio for that? What is the legal ratio of adults:students in a mixed 4 y/o PreK setting? (#___ SPED+ #___regular=1 teacher and ____paras) Specifically in Louisiana, but curious about other states, as well!
Your thoughts on Inclusion champion?
Might be a paranoid mom question - my 16 month old is starting daycare next week. So far, I’ve had virtual interviews/meet and greet sessions with the daycare staff. Today we went in for our in-person orientation and I noticed that my child is the only non-white kid in his class of 8. Not entirely shocking, but in my head (and having seen pictures in their catalog) I was hoping there would be a little more diversity. Should I be worried about my kid feeling left out because he looks different?
Just want to put it out there: if you are a POC interviewing at a low-POC firm (esp in smaller markets), don’t be discouraged or judge on that alone. We are making huge efforts to increase diversity.
Anyone familiar with The AES Corporation? How is the culture there? Specifically around diversity. Have an upcoming interview- some red flags doing some internet research. Appreciate any insight.
How would you suggest combating the “diversity hire” stereotype in your firm? A lot of managers at my firm don’t want to work with “diversity hires” because they think those people got a large advantage in the application process and aren’t as likely to be qualified as a result.
Funny how now that “diversity” includes “white women,” agencies and companies can’t hire them fast enough. Where was the diversity when it included African Americans and Latinos?
How does Bain & Company do with diversity?
Is it reasonable to be expected to spend 20-30 non-billable hours a month checking your paralegal’s work? (i.e. summarizing hundreds of records and bills). The partner said he “didn’t use paralegals” at his previous firm and eating the time is an “investment in yourself.” Is this common?
Any advice for someone looking to transition into a full HR Generalist role from Recruiting. I’m currently a Campus Recruiter with about 5 years of HR experience (Coordinator- Higher Ed). I received my PHR certification in September 2020 and sitting for my SHRM-CP in two weeks. I’m having a hard time transitioning into a full Generalist position.
I just left the ad world and living a more peaceful life. With that said I’m bored. Any agency gossip? Who’s sleeping with whom? What client did you lose? Etc.
