@ legacy strategy PPEDs - in light of our supposed commitment to diversity and inclusion, what is the plan for the ED who is widely known for making openly racist and misogynistic comments in the office and on social media?
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.
Any Latinos feeling left out of all this diversity buzz? Seems we are always invisible :/
Quite disappointed that Bain ignored “LGBT” term and instead referred it as “special group” during a Greater China pre-MBA info session, when asked whether Bain has LGBT diversity program. Bain changed its logo into Pride on LinkedIn but can’t recognize LGBT? I know it’s China, but expect Bain to be more supportive across the firm globally.
How do you all think remote working is influencing gender dynamics in your teams? I wonder if/how relying on virtual comms with no in-person interactions will help or hurt things.
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
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.
For anyone buying for one - how much do you spend on groceries each week (on average)? Pls age and gender too
Tired/disgusted about all the gender discrimination and sexual harassment we face at work ? Me too. Post about your experiences on www.hesaidwhaaat.com
Thought: When you see diversity of skin color as the most critical factor you miss out of diversity of experience and ideas. Quite often these overlap, but there are a lot of people out there like JD Vance who come from poor white roots, but because of their skin color they’re assumed to have some magical privilege bestowed upon them by society. Likewise, wealthy people of color are lumped in with their less affluent counterparts. We’re so quick to look at skin color and see the sum (cont’d)
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.
thoughts on this inclusion thing? As a minority it seems to be a publicity stunt... for the pictures and social media posts... Just confused about why we are still talking about what needs to get done
I have a controversial observation: Facebook seems to be using recruitment process managers to get diversity hires. I've looked at all the RPM hires over the past few years and every one of them seems to be a woman, most commonly a woman of color. I'm all for diversity, but this feels out of balance. Am I wrong?
Was at an event recently. Seems like advertising really only cares about diversity as it applies to white women. I think this industry wants to stay white.
Anyone else struggle with participation in literally anything other than a Veterans Day Parade with their veterans networks/diversity groups? I can’t get anyone to commit to anything
How do you suggest creative agencies address "forced diversity" requests (demands) from clients or internal management when casting talent?
Major crush. She is brilliant: intelligent, insightful, confident, kind, a champion of diversity, funny. But, id never overstep our workplace boundaries by extending an invite to drinks. Sighhh.
Thanks for doing this Paul! I'm pretty interested in data on this. Do some states have teachers w/ more student loans than others? Is there a gender gap?
Is it just me or does anyone else find the Microsoft spot with Katie (who by all means deserves it) hypocritical, after the way the 49er’s really showed what they think of diversity w/ Kaepernick?
I’ve been with ACN for 3 years now and want to start job hunting to see what’s on the market. Any tips for the interviews? (best presenting myself, salary questions etc) Haven’t done any in the past 3 years; forgot how it felt like..
Considering move from B4 to ACN, with sales experience and managing team of 10+ team under belt. Expect M Or SM at ACN?
Just needed to vent. Me: I’m so tired since baby’s been going through a sleep regression lately. It’d be great if you could watch her most of tomorrow so I can get a break
How come - given all this shit about health/pharma work having *purpose* - shops like Area 23 only hit awards? Because, I dunno, no-one has ever shown how that saves lives.
Just promoted to M1 in Michigan. Base salary is now $88,300 (+4% bonus of $3k for total of $91,300). Wondering how this compares to others out there, and if I should be happy or disappointed, lol.
Is it worth it to get a professional certification like SHRM/PHR? Not many of my colleagues have one and it’s not a requirement for my role, but I’m curious if it’s worth it in the long run
I’m relatively new to freelancing, but was lucky enough to sell in a video shoot and travel to be there on set. How do you handle billing hours and expenses in this scenario as a freelancer? Obviously I’ll bill any hours working on the project, time on set and expense my travel. Do you bill extra for the billable hours you lost during travel?
Sometimes, after my 9 years in consulting (pre and post MBA), I look back and think, “man, I wish I had gone to Med school”
Just checked in for a flight tomorrow AM. Slowly feeling like the pre-COVID version of myself
Interested in trust and safety! Anyone know resources and how to get into these roles at FAANG + companies?
Mamas, have you asked for a roll off or less responsibilities on your current project due to pregnancy symptoms like morning sickness? My client is so critical and demanding it’s caused me to have stress hives and panic attacks. I don’t think I can do my role well pregnant and don’t want the stress to cause the baby harm.
Tried to help an older lady take her luggage down the stairs at Union Station (Chicago). She panicked and held onto her luggage very tight. On hindsight, (cont)
Are there any careers that suit transferring teachers? I was recently diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, and the thought of having to stand "on stage" and teach M-F isn't feasible for my mental health.
Considering the FRM certification. Those who’ve taken it, how quant heavy is it? I have a compliance risk background and don’t have a deep math or statistics background. However, I want to expand my skillset. Any thoughts?
What is your opinion on GARP financial Risk Manager (FRM) certificate? I am considering taking it (as I am FS Risk Consulting), but I am not sure if it really carries benefits. Apparently it is quite a tough study. Is it worth the time or should I invest my time elsewhere? Also do you have learning material you are willing to share :D?
At what point in my career should I consider taking the CFP? Almost 4 years in the business and have my AAMS and CRPC designations already.
What is the federal parental leave policy? I’m new to government and having a baby soon. I know we’re given 12 weeks and have to sign an agreement to work 12 weeks after we return but are there other stipulations to a claw back period or how long we had to be at the agency first?
Urgent help! I didn’t work on R before, just basic knowledge. Now the company I’m interviewing for asked me to solve a supply chain optimisation case study on R and make a presentation. Any leads on how can I learn R by this weekend?
That moment when you had all your projects out the door, ready to pack for your vacation and chill, but your client comes back with "urgent" changes. #fml #almostthere
United lost my son's car seat on a 3 hr flight. It was registered as a checked luggage with the proper csrseat tag and everything. After following up with an agent after we landed, they said it stayed in EWR and they are working to get it shipped to me in the next day or so while I'm on vacation. Anyway to get points for the inconvenience, I'm Premier platinum if it matters. They did give me a free loaner carseat until mine arrives but it's kinda crappy tbh.
