I’ve been thinking about leaving my job for a couple of years, but one thing that always stopped me was this nagging feeling that I would be letting women down by not staying and making partner and improving the “ratio.” But I just got a job offer to be an executive at a company where I’ll be the *only* female leader, so I guess I’ll still be contributing to gender equality after all! 💪🏻 Very excited about this new opportunity! But also SUPER nervous!

Congratulations! While this is a huge accomplishment that you should be so proud of, please don't try to bear the weight of women's empowerment by yourself, especially if it is impacting your happiness. Everything you choose for yourself pushes the envelope for us all because our freedom of choice IS the true measure of equality. So make sure yours are best for YOU and we'll applaud and appreciate you all the way.

You're going to rock it! I hope you get to celebrate! WE ARE PROUD OF YOU! 👏

So I recently started a position with Fox. When it was presented to me in interview, I was told I would be working aligned with Fox Sports & Entertainment, not so much News. Now that I’m here, I’m seeing everything I’ll be doing is with the News team & makes me uncomfortable. No diversity, outdated software & process.
Financially, it’s the best position I been in. But mentally in this environment, it’s depressing & slow. Nothing innovative or engaging. What would you do?

Respected People,

I wanted to understand why females are on this much higher altitude in India?
even gender ratio of india is now 1020/1000, which means india has more female than males.

Then why people are going crazy for finding a girl?

Why self respect do not matter for some people?

PS: I am a guy. *Not looking for any girl*, 

Already got a decent girl as my life partner. (based on my personality not salary)

Would you be okay being the first non-white hire at a small agency? Like they are making their first effort to bring diversity in (making it clear that you are not just a diversity hire), but you are going to be alone in a sea of white faces. I personally don’t know how to feel about it but I’d love to hear other opinions.

Due to currency fluctuation and sales tax difference I can get 19 for 4732 vs local 4800+sales tax, which would be like $300 savings. Not much, but I’m cheap. I don’t like Chanel that much, but it seems like a good investment. So from the investment perspective - would you buy 19, 19 maxi, boy bag, Gabrielle or WoC? And would you buy it in neutral color and material or buy the latest fashion?
