Quick vent: I really hate when people aren’t inclusive! I invite my roommate out all the time with my friends and we have a great time. I haven’t received a single invite back. She definitely has more friends than I do in the area so it would help me out a lot to be invited & included to form a friend group. I even tried to invite myself and still no inclusion. Ugh.
Am I wrong in thinking it’s inappropriate to talk negatively about members of a specific gender or race at work? I’ve been hearing more of it recently.
I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
Starting full time at McKinsey in November. Curious to know what it’s like for fellow gender non-conforming folk, as well as non-binary and trans folks at the firm (or as consultants in general!) Are there any trans/non binary people at your firm/office location, regardless of your firm? Just trying to gauge what kind of world I’m stepping into.
Is having an all-female event in a company setting inherently sexist? Isn’t defining who is allowed to attend an event based on gender the definition of sexism and should not be allowed?
I was told by a PPED in NY today that the reasons I'm not up for partner is needing to lose weight, not being female or a diversity candidate, and not having the right family image (married with kids)
Minority friends (e.g. Ethnicity, gender, sexuality,etc) Microaggressions you experience weekly?
I don’t get these gender reveal parties. If it’s a boy they are happy, if it’s a girl they are happy. Just get a party and be happy ... lol
Is there a woman out there who is bothered by someone addressing a group as “”you guys.” Your opinion is the one that matters.
Accenture, BCG, Deloitte & E&Y all signed up to be in the consortium for eliminating the gender pay gap. All the sudden I'm feeling the urge to switch firms!
How do you handle being asked to support “diversity recruiting” when you don’t actually recommend your firm to diverse talent? How do you manage the optics of saying no and potentially saying no repeatedly?
Hello, I am dying to know the average age and gender ( even non Binary) of people in this bowl. Just curious , I will start - Female 33Y
On a call with the CEO talking about diversity and they compare a person with tattoos experiencing prejudice in the office to Black people colleague experiences... Meanwhile last I checked, a tattoo was a choice and removable. Also depending on placement, you can’t see it.
What's the worst case of marital infidelity you've witnessed at your firm? Offender's gender and level within the firm, + how you/others who knew reacted and handled it?
When it comes to recruiting, is it good for the industry when the first word out of HR is "diversity" and not "talent?"
Debating between purchasing a house in Powder Springs vs Woodstock area. We are very much inclined towards diversity which includes some desi crowd as well. Opinions about these two areas will be greatly appreciated. TIA!
Once, a M friend said "men are stronger than women, I could dominate you right now" and at the moment I didn't know what to say cause he was in fact bigger and stronger than me. But this is something that bothers me still... I think people in general, regardless of gender, have different abilities and it is not a matter of comparing but rather understanding how best to use them, for yourself and for the society. It pisses me off to know ppl can think like this, and he is actually a good friend
Deloitte’s Diversity & Inclusion group hosted Nicole Hannah-Jones today and it was a goddamn breath of fresh air to hear her speak candidly. Even called the firm out in some places. If you haven’t seen her NYT 1619 project, educate yourselves https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2019/08/14/magazine/1619-america-slavery.html
Per diem dinner allowance for Orlando at KPMG seems low at $33. That city has become much more expensive especially since it’s essentially a resort town. What do other firms allow?
I am currently situated in the US and plan to do a landing in Canada for PR stamping. Any recent experiences going through this? Can I just land, get the stamping and fly back? Or do I need to wait back for negative covid test?
When everyone is getting more than they’re full of Zoom meetings, what are some other ways to keep employees engaged, connected, and feeling like they’re part of something important?
How does one get an offer from a FAANG company without getting a referral? I keep applying but not hearing anything back. Does anyone have any advice that has worked? Reaching out to a recruiter on Linkedin?
Besides pay/benefits, what are changes that happen when you move from a C to M levels? Do you have access/exposure to different tools that help you do your job/take on bigger responsibilities?
DCA -> LAX ... anyone has any experiences or recommendations? Trying to make my mind between sticking with AA or switching back to Delta (used to fly with them) 🤷🏼♀️
Anyone move to hawaii to work remotely for the Covid year? Wondering if I can pull it off while working east coast hours....
Corporate development role at indeed.com. Anyone else get that haha? Any thoughts! M&A specific so could be cool just not sure about the company. Would like another comp
I’ve been offered a job with about 40% of the comp being a “target bonus” (ad/tech company). What is a target bonus and are the targets even attainable?
Has anyone gotten into arguments with family members over the science of COVID and taking the vaccine? I firmly believe that it ultimately is your decision whether to get vaccinated, but I’d also be remiss not to share why I think we should trust the science. I don’t think just sitting back and allowing another family to spew out far-right conspiracy theories to other family members is acceptable. And equally, I recognize what I’m doing may not be ok. Perhaps there isn’t an in between. 😒🥴
Happy weekend everyone! Just got a verbal job offer and I wanted to understand how the H1B transfer works. 1) should I quit before transfer is confirmed or should I wait to confirm transfer? 2) are transfers ever denied? Thanks for your help!
Any recommendation of book to crack a case study? MBA course case study and real life firms case study?

Also has a roof-top pool for those hotter days with less workload.
