People of color are treated differently everywhere. We just need to be aware of our own subconscious biases and try our best to correct them and treat everyone equally.

Concur with OP. I feel diversity is "embraced" at my firm... that being said there are currently 0 black people on my team of 40+ and at my old group at a MM firm my black VP was most definitely treated differently (both overly cautious so to not offend to the point where it was painfully obvious and indirect discrimination) .

I'm Asian and I get along with everyone... or so I though... 😭

Partners, hoping you can shed some light on how diversity decisions are made during annual performance reviews ? For example, at PwC performance evaluation results in recs for who gets promoted. But if the combined firm-wide recommendations do not meet expected minimum diversity goals then what happens? Are partners asked to revise recommendations such that diversity goals are met, or are diversity goals ignored in favor of eval recommendations? Facts only, please 🙏

Hello! I am looking for some perspective. Those who have been in an arranged marriage - 1. What qualities did you seek in a partner? 2. How long did it take for you to decide that your partner was the right one when you first started talking to them (how frequently did you meet them)? 3. How important was your family's opinion? 4. Are you happy with your decision right now? Please provide your gender and experience. FYI - I am a little skeptical about arranged marriages, but I have seen it work

You CAN be that leader that people want to work with. 1st, self assessment is required. Be honest: As a leader,have you engaged in/accepted Attribution Bias with a dash of gender &/or race bias? (See the pic) This is something we all need to be aware of as we lead our teams, provide performance feedback, & model the behaviors we'd like to see more of on our teams. Be on the lookout for Attribution Bias in yourself & on your team. It's a hindrance to creating a high-performing, inclusive culture.

We always talk about diversity as being important, which it is, but if you don’t have diversity of thought what’s the point. We’re selling products to the masses not our very small advertising bubble.
