It blows my mind how much kinder and more supportive the members of this group are than the Big Law group and the Law group more generally. Like men really are trash, huh? Ive seen the same questions asked/posts in both groups with vastly different responses. See this is yet another one of the many reasons diversity matters in the legal profession. And another reason why women should be free to bring of the qualities that make women great to the table in the workplace instead of emulating (cont.
I love this (queer-positive comic creators really bring so much joy to the world) ☺️ The same goes for gender!
What do you think: Teachers should/should not discuss their opinions and ideas around sexuality, gender, and religion with students.
Got some dress shirts for Xmas that are not standard white or blue. Not a fan of diversity in my shirt color. Does anyone rock dress shirtst that aren't white or blue regularly?

Black consultants (primarily in the US but question is open!) - what’s your honest perception of OW from an I&D / diversity point of view?
Does working for Partners (particularly Boomers) of your respective ethnicity or diversity demographic feel like the ultimate haze? Do you feel like they haze you worse than your non-diverse peers?
I'm glad we're having these conversations about race, gender, wages, etc in an reasonable way that doesn't involve flagging posts. As a black female it's hard to ask coworkers directly what (contd)
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/
I did a photo shoot for my firm’s diversity campaign and they made me look browner than I am to make a point :/ Not sure what to do
I've gotten at least 3 'final reminders' from HR to complete the Self ID survey. Can't help but feel it's because of my last name...sorry, not gonna be a diversity box for you to check.
gender equality is great and all but god dammit what i wouldn't do to have the first day of my period off from work.
It just occurred to me that part of why I like posting on Fishbowl is that no one knows my gender
"I have no idea what it's like to have my life circumstances affected by my race or gender but listen up because I've got a really important take about discrimination"
What is the legal ratio of adults:students in an ECSE inclusion setting? In a reverse mainstream setting? Are Title I PreK classrooms required to have a para and teacher? What is the ratio for that? What is the legal ratio of adults:students in a mixed 4 y/o PreK setting? (#___ SPED+ #___regular=1 teacher and ____paras) Specifically in Louisiana, but curious about other states, as well!
Do partners of color actually give you work? There’s only a handful in my office and they are nice to me, even are candid about how white upper management is. But they’ve never thrown any work my way or even gotten to know me on a real professional level which is frustrating because they purport to support diversity initiatives, etc. and I’ve definitely tried to open a line of communication with each of them.
I'm bored. Bored of white men acting like diversity in advertising is a humdrum trend that can be likened to bots and ar.
Hi Ladies. It’s my understanding that everyone working at Salesforce loves it, correct? Looks like a cool place to work but not sure how it actually operates on the inside. I’m talking to a recruiter soon and would like to have an idea of the culture. Pls let me know! Thx!

New to KPMG- out of town at a client, how does claiming a per diem work? I've just been buying my meals with my corporate card
My girlfriend and I really want to take vacation in early May but since I'm writing the CFE this year, would it be advisable to bank those days for studying? How much time do we get off to study?

I'm at EY in the FSO Tax service line and I am hating it, should I switch service lines or go to a different Big 4 firm? If so, which firm has been the best as for as work life balance.
Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary. Co B's interview structure is 3 rounds and I've finished my 2nd round today. The recruiter mentioned that since I am a contractor my current salary is incomparable as they will provide benefits, etc. Is this true? I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
Do you think parental leave policies and the culture around it at your company are fair?
Dear new freelancers: stop lowballing your rate by charging like you were a fulltimer. You have to pay for your own healthcare, equipment, holidays, sick days AND downtime between gigs.
Taking medical leave because of my anxiety and depression issues. Need to figure out what to do. Perhaps an intensive outpatient program. Terrified of what’s to come
How do you develop healthy financial boundaries with parents? My mother made a lot of sacrifices for myself and my sister growing up but she’s starting to feel like a burden. She’s just refused to go for more in life mostly because she’s been in a financially, emotionally and on one rare occasion, physically abusive relationship. It’s not that I don’t want to help her but she’s getting older and I’m trying to save for possible medical expenses. I have an account dedicated to that which — cont’d
I worked for a desi consultant for several years and left for a startup last year. Now he is saying he will not honor the future employement green card he filed back in the day as dates have become current , I want to mess him up. There were several pay issues and fudging of documents when we were applying for immigration paperwork. What’s the best way to approach this? I would like Max collateral damage.
Now that the CDC says no masks needed indoors if vaccinated, is anybody concerned what that means for kids under 12? I’m assuming that the honor system isn’t entirely going to work (I.e., some unvaccinated people will go maskless). I don’t want my 5 and 7 year olds around unvaccinated unmasked strangers, but it’s also a bummer to stop taking them places. Not that I was taking them that many places, but the occasional grocery store, shoe store, etc. seems riskier now.
Any moms here living in WA state and availed the 12 weeks parental leave( baby bonding time off) offered by the state recently?
