Just finished a product strategy interview. It was difficult. The interviewer's countenance did not help either ... Seemed like he was confused on what to ask me towards the end.

I really want to protest the interview but I don't think it'll fly .

New to Project Management. Today my company asked me to PM a new customer Project. The Project is assigned a team with a technical lead. My career so far has been in development, but I have already been a lead on projects where managers had little presence and I had to do a lot of customer interactions. However, I have never been present in a project kick-off and high level decision making processes. What do I need to find out on early stages of the discussion, and what to ask in onboarding?

Been hell of a year so far. Sort of bittersweet. Lost my job a few months back. Laid off the first time. But my net worth is all time high.

Guess will go with happy for now.

While my boss is very sensitive to sexism, he often reminds me that I am only a 2nd year, and that sometimes people (attorneys in our firm, outside co-counsel, opposing counsel) treat me differently in accordance with my experience level, rather than because of my gender. I, however, believe that I’d be given a lot more respect as a male 2nd year. Small firm so we don’t have any male associates. How do I show him it’s my gender and not my experience level?

Has anyone ever gone from consulting to a university? And not teaching - more of like a staff ops role (accounting, IT, etc).

Also, don't make it the women's responsibility to navigate the gender politics, agression and harassment on their own. The company needs to take a stand and show everyone in a public way how much they value female points of view and the women that work there. When they leave it up to us to filter through all the garbage, we end up spending too much time worrying about that and too little time doing the work.
