Is it culturally racist to be against cultural artifacts that are counter to your values? For example glorification of murder in outlaw southern rock, heavy metal, or some hip hop.

Do junior lit associate laterals (one to two years experience at a firm plus a clerkship or two) ever not clear conflicts? Is that something to be concerned about? I can see a partner with dozens or hundreds of matters to their name presenting conflict problems, but what of the lowly junior associate/law clerk?


Hi everyone! I am currently transitioning into a new EA role for a startup. My current position is very simple and not complicated. I am intimidated because I am not super savvy with some softwares.

Can someone please screen shot the way they organize their CEOs calendar/gmail. I need a system. Thanks!


What do you call it when you buy a bunch of self-help books and are slow to read them (feel like I don’t have time, don’t know where to start because I have so much to fix), have a thousand self-help to-dos like meditating, exercising, stretching, pursuing various hobbies and struggle to stay consistent, and then shame yourself for not doing all of the above…what do you call that. Asking for me.


I wish my agency would’ve just fired me. I would’ve made more money through unemployment than my actual job, without having to work 12 hours per day on projects that I have no passion for.

I’m an FA within the bank channel and have made the mistake of leaving my first firm to go to another. bank program that ended up failing and sold our books to another firm. It’s become harder and harder to grow a book now within the bank channel because of Reg BI and it’s going to take me a decade to grow my book to where I want to be. I’m a CFP and finishing up my MBA. I’m thinking of going to another area of Finance all together like PE. Any suggestions for me? NOT looking to go Independent.

I’m convinced that the reason some of these firms are so prestigious is because they have intentionally exclusionary recruitment practices. I used to believe that you had to already be rich to get hired at MBB. Now being on the other side of the recruitment process , I really do feel that it rings true. I hate the way we evaluate candidates and decide on who is “high priority” during coffee chats.

From the Moderator: I would like to compile a list of questions/issues for this group to discuss... please suggest questions. I will hold them in a list and release them one per week. So The first question for the group is... what questions do you suggest this “safe zone” for all people deal with? GO!


From the Moderator....

Week 1: July 19 to July 25

From the Moderator:

How do we feel about Joe Biden:

(A) Declaring before hand that his VP would be a woman
(B) Selecting a black woman

Should organizations take similar action? For example declaring that their next CEO will be a woman.

All views welcome


From the Moderator:

Week 3: August 2 to August 9

Question of the week

Pretend You’re an NBA player...

(A) Would you stand for the national anthem or kneel?
(B) How would you feel about your other players standing or kneeling?

As a reminder our goal on this bowl is to fully understand other people’s POV and to share your POV effectively so it’s fully understood. So that empathy can happen...not necessarily to change someone else’s mind. This may or may not happen.


I created this group because: there are both black and white people afraid to say what they really think. I see this as a problem because unless we can say what we truly feel we can’t identify differences and come to genuine solutions.

Suggested Format is we will deal with 1 question or topic per week. The question will be from participants. I will try to simply be a host, moderator and translator. We will lay out some ground rules to make it safe for all. I will enforce these.


From the moderator, for discussion.

Should white males be concerned that current focus on diversity will lead to negative results

If Yes, why and under what conditions
If No, why not?
