Thank you SM for providing a CD Q&A.
There is also a general group available for all M&A industry professionals (+10k members)
Interesting perspective on a group who gets left out of the diversity conversation. https://www.diversityinc.com/9-things-never-to-say-to-white-colleagues/
Hi, can anyone shed light over the online pre screening test at bain for senior knowledge specialist position? Any insights would be helpful.
Need genuine suggestion. Need to take an final call. I had two major offers in hand 1) Deloitte USI (12.5 fixed + 1.5 Variable + 3 Joining bonus + 2 Retention) - Consultant 2) Synechron ( 14LPA fixed) - Senior Associate Which one to choose ? And i have heard wlb is bad at Deloitte but what about Synechron? And synechron hr told to send the deloitte offer. And they told they will try to increase the package. In that case how much can i ask? Please suggest little urgent. Synechron Inc. Deloitte US
As a leader, I try to use what power and influence I have to make change. Yesterday, on a holding co leadership call when trying to get a Fortune 15 company to meaningfully act. I was faced with 4 white, 50+ y/o men on a zoom screen telling me they were “doing enough.” Ignoring statistics, the research they provided, let alone the moral argument. If I am this exhausted, frustrated, and drained in this moment, I can only imagine this is a sliver of what others feel every day.
Are companies still providing 70-100 percent hikes on job switch. I am in Data analysis domain and recently put down my papers in deloitte.
ME 🐠: serious question after having gone through multiple threads on this forum and elsewhere. Can someone working in the region (ideally mid level - EM / SM / Principal) really debunk or validate the “WLB is non existent in ME” notion, particularly T1/2 Strat firms. How bad is it really? Peaks are extreme everywhere regardless of geography. However, what does an avg work week feel like? Grateful if the response is as specific and personal/ accurate as possible please. TIA 🙏🙏🙏
Hello fishes. Need some advice.
I hold an offer from CTS. Now recently I have had higher offers from different companies.
Can we re-negotiate with CTS to match the higher offer? Or how to approach that subject?

If you are really burned out, how likely are you to truly express it on the sustainability survey?
How do you get appointments with plan sponsors? They are hard to get in contact with and then 401(k) seems so low on their priority list or they "are happy with" (don't know about) their plan.

How do you deal with your “mentor” being threatened by your performance and gatekeeping information from you? Then turning around and giving you shit for not knowing things… but they don’t tell you anything and there is no way for you to know. My learning and development is being hindered and I’ve felt this for a long time, but coworker just confirmed this is the case. Now that I know I’m not “crazy” for thinking this, how should I approach this?
Working on introducing ERGs at a company- how did your company decide the first ERGs to start with? How did they communicate the start of ERGs and roll out the structure?

I’ve been given a D&I project for my firm which is ideal because it has always been a passion of mine. In the process I’ve noticed that no one is actually committed to this cause. How do you make management see that it’s not just about writing a check?
Let’s just admit that Linked In is a terrible platform for WOC. It’s just another tool ppl use to discriminate. I had to delete my profile picture and lock all of my social media accounts just to get interviews.LinkedIn

Juneteenth is just around the corner. This is the first year I get the day off as a company holiday -- not sure if my company is having any programs or events. How about yours? And if not, are you doing anything on your own to recognize/celebrate this day?
I’m trying to cultivate discussion oriented DEI spaces, any topical themes that would make fun and engaging discussions?
Definitely took the wrong job. I was offered a seriously competitive salary and great benefits to work at a well funded startup, which is great! Turns out the salary and benefits were meant as lowkey bribes to insure I worked at the company without actually doing any work. Every single suggestion I've made has been shut down and I've been ghosted for several meetings with the CEO. What should I do? Just leave?
God imagine working DEI at Twitter 😂😅
Shortly after George Floyd's death, this video commentary by Kimberly Jones went viral. As a white person, it's hard for me to watch because of its powerful raw truthfulness. But I think every white person should sit down and watch this video because it clearly explains the frustrations and fears of Black people as well as the BLM movement and the difference between protesting, rioting, and looting.
How do I transition from a Senior Executive Assistant role to Project Management? Ideally I would like to work in tech. How should I go about this? I currently work in the Real estate industry so it would be a totally new career path. The reason I want to move into tech is I feel like many of the companies I see have the same values as me (diversity & inclusion) and a good culture is so important to me.
hi! I work for an early-stage Fintech startup called Fennel; (www.fennel.com) focused on impact investing as well as shareholder activism and giving every day investors the tools they need to make informed and aligned decisions. I'm wondering what people think of this space and about ESG, given that there has been a lot of relevant media attention recently & would love to know if people make investment decisions based on factors like workforce equity, ceo pay, etc?
“I must honestly confess that I go through moments of disappointment when I have to recognize that there aren’t enough white persons in our country who are willing to cherish democratic principles over privilege. But I am grateful to God that some are left.” This quote is from MLK in 1968 about how he sensed the movement was losing the battle for the soul of the nation.
I recently moved to Toronto from New Jersey. I’ve been applying with little success. I have a background in healthcare, non-profit, and public health. Any advice on what company I should apply to?
My company has ERGs and one of them is pretty large and includes a lot of demographics. Within it, people are starting to kind of form their own subgroups (like based on office location or country-specific ethnicity). Does anyone have any thoughts around what would be appropriate for DEI practitioners to be aware of when serving these populations?
