Over represented. Sorry - you’re out of luck

Are you diverse?

Why are you assuming it would be easier? Have you seen the demographic data for FAANG and other top companies? In the best companies, you usually have to get a unanimous set of “yeses” which is tough for just about anyone

No it’s not SAC. Signed, Ex-FAANG

Depends on the industry. Tech probably not, but oil and gas maybe.

Does anyone notice there has been an increase of Asian Americans suddenly trying to benefit from initiatives fought for by Black Americans while claiming their struggle trumps that of Black Americans? I find it strange. At my firm, I am a senior exec who have seen Black colleagues fight for 7+ years for diversity initiatives and we have finally gotten some notice at my firm. Nobody wants to be a minority until it’s beneficial to be one. And I peep the game and the change in behavior

Let’s discuss gender pay gaps by assessing our own discrepancies. I’ll start.

I’m happy with where I’m at, but are my male counterparts on here making more or relatively the same?

I was interviewing for McKinsey in the defense and security industry (clearance needed) and thought I did absolutely great on the first business case. The second, however, was with a principal that had very different political views from my own (I’d done some research on her LinkedIn). The business case felt different from any others that I had studied and felt like an attempt to get political without directly doing so. I was quickly rejected following the 2nd interview. Should I try reapplying?
