Has anyone made the jump from a traditional role (producer, strategy,etc) to an internal diversity role? Specifically interested in carving this out for production department
Ever lied about your race on an job application to try and get an interview? Not a wild lie but saying you’re of mixed races or anything
Hello Everyone, I am looking to hire a couple of technical sources who have a keen interest in diversity. I am building out a diversity sourcing team to support AWS AI/ML practice. Great opportunity with lots of visibility. Let me know if you are interested in learning more.
This girl is the same age as me, makes over double what I do and went to a state school and majored in gender studies. So much for working hard in school and getting an in demand STEM degree 😅 FAANG or bust. https://youtu.be/KrB9iSd38LA
After reading many annual reports, I am really getting tired of the fact that female management board members are always HR. Often that’s the only female member. Gender equality has long way to go
So here’s that NYT article about the lack of diversity at Adidas... which is also true about their agencies. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/19/business/adidas-diversity-employees.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share
Hi. I have an interview with NTT Data Services for their business ops consulting practice. Does anyone have any insight on their culture and diversity?
Out of curiosity, is it better to work at a firm with diversity issues but more resources & perks than a diverse firm with limited resources?
How many of you have faced low balling in compensation after interviews? When they make you an offer, did you feel like your comp was driven by gender? Just respond yes or no
What is the general perception of diversity initiatives at your firm? Do you think they make any difference in associate retention or promotion? Perspectives from all, including straight, white, wealthy men are welcome. As a female, senior associate that is a queer POC, I couldn’t care less, and my sponsors look nothing like me.
Why do folks move or stay in Cali when the tax burden is pretty significant compared to another vibrant city like Atlanta or Dallas or Charlotte? I did some calcs and for a 250k salary the diff is 1800 a month in net pay between a no tax city/State such as Dallas, TX and about 1000 between Atlanta/Charlotte and CA. Those are significant numbers unless someone is making 2-4 times where a 1000-1800 may not matter to some.
I’m a woman in my mid 20s and constantly face situations where people outside of cyber (still within the company) that I’m dealing with (older men in particular) who always push back against my cyber/technical recommendations even with managers cc’d. I studied, earned certs, and worked hard to get to where I am. Is it bc of my gender and age? In all honesty, I’ve written recommendations that male counterparts voiced in the past that had ZERO pushbacks.
I’ve found there’s nothing better than some good music to improve my mood. I’m sure we have some audio diversity here: What’s your current favorites? 🎧 🎵
I’ve noticed companies are starting to ask if you wish to identify if you’re LGBTQ+ when applying for jobs. When I’ve gone along with this I notice recruiters focus more on diversity and employee groups, and it’s making me feel like I’m being interviewed as a potential diversity hire, especially when I’ve received interviews from companies that are prone to boy’s club culture. I’m not really sure how I feel about this. Anyone else experience it or have thoughts?
Cory Booker: "We're spiraling towards a debate stage that potentially- we're still fighting to get on it, but could have six people with no diversity whatsoever” https://www.foxnews.com/media/harris-2020-exit-leaves-potentially-all-white-debate-causing-consternation-among-dems
Private school worth it? I think of it as insurance. Less chance your kid is a screw up, sets the baseline of what school he/she gets into higher. makes sure they don’t get lost in the weeds with low student teacher ratio. Anyone else done extensive research or has practical life experiences with this?
Are they hiring more women in top positions because of their skills or to win points in this gender equality hype we all part of creating?

So facebook has a written rule to protect certain groups from hate speech but not others? Prioritize white men over black children they say. WTF?!
Two weeks of emailing and contacting the client to no success of a reply. Yep...you know what happens next. Fire Drill Wednesday...
We're going to make America great again! Can't wait!
Just contemplated ordering a whole bottle of wine from room service as I stare at this excel sheet.
Can't make a decision between Chase Sapphire Preferred and AMEX Gold. Offer expires today. Help! P.S. Please don't tell me to get CSR instead.
Was your wife supportive of your travel schedule once you had kids? My wife doesn’t want me to work in consulting once we start having kids in a few years.

How many people are dating other consultants? It's just so much easier not having to explain all the baggage that comes along. No pun intended.
