BAH and “diversity”. A joke. Are you represented at your firms senior leadership levels? The BAH office here on the west coast addressed the BLM during a virtual all hands a few weeks ago or so. They asked a black employee to make a statement about it (typical) but what really irked me is how they showed a senior leadership offsite photo. This photo consisted of all the SAs and above. 16 people. All white, 1 black. No Asians, no Hispanic, no IPOC. How diverse is your senior team?
Just curious from the post below: is there a diversity hire at McKinsey & Company? I guess everyone needs to pass the same bar but maybe they get a little extra push than non-diverse candidates?
Just came across this great resource: How to design with intentionality and inclusivity https://chetnetwork.com/pathway/how-to-design-with-intention-and-inclusion?utm_source=Reddit&utm_medium=Post&utm_campaign=productdesign_divyamicrocourse
Long story short - my nanny has many conservative values - mom shaming breastfeeding in public, gender specific roles, considering boys better than girls etc. it never bothered me before and I have learned to co exist with her however now my toddler is speaking and understanding more I am worried about him being influenced by her. Further she also has comments against my SO being too involved parent & calling out son as cutie, hugging toddler etc as he is a boy. Contd..
I’m a mid-level working in a niche area in NYC. I like the work I do, put in long hours, high quality work, take time to mentor juniors, etc. I see myself at a law firm long term but now wondering if this is the right firm to make partner. Among others, one big concern I have is the non-existent emphasis on diversity and inclusion initiatives (they aren’t even pretending to care...), no committees, no statements in support of POC, etc. How do I find firms really committed to these issues?
The problem with diversity is they focus on a quota rather than changing the culture of marginalized groups in the office. So often people speak over me, take credit for my ideas... and it's accepted.
I have a full time inclusion teacher in my first period class. Do you have an "inclusion" teacher any of your classes?
Why do we celebrate diversity and not just people? Celebrating diversity is offensive to 'diverse’ people as they don’t like to be treated as corporate trophies and is discriminatory against white men
Anyone have first hand experience working at Ryan, LLC? Pay/Culture/Leadership/Diversity etc..
Better .com fired their whole diversity and Inclusion team over zoom. Do you think they weren’t seeking the increased profits attributable to D+I that many consulting firms promised?
What’s your gender, age, & city? After dropping your info, respond to others in your area
I have been invited to a company diversity program. After reviewing the materials, I believe this will be more divisive and unhelpful than it will be constructive. I would like to not attend. Has anyone been successful in having this type of conversation with their manager? And because it seems to matter these days, I’ll just throw out there that I am not a cis white man 😂
Happy International Women’s Day to all the 🐠 on here advocating for gender diversity. Judging from some of the D&I posts/replies lately it’s very necessary. Hope you’re as vocal w/in your firms 💪🏻
Does anyone love the fact about FB that the comments are gender neutral - meaning you don't know whether they are from a guy/gal explicitly ?
I can't wait to hear the feedback on this one: Deloitte is nixing employee affinity groups for women and minorities—fixtures at many large companies—and replacing them with inclusion councils that have white men. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-07-19/deloitte-thinks-diversity-groups-are-pass
Desperately seeking more diversity in this industry. No matter how much one agency claims to be diverse, it’s just never there
Got denied promotion a 2nd year in a row. Already acting as manager on my current projects and feeling a bit down. Should I try again a 3rd year or just leave now 🧐 Manager : “You fly far under the radar, hit billables, clients like you, coworkers have nothing but good things to say, do good work consistently, but missing the “shine/pluses needed for me to make the business case for promotion”. Let’s work next year to get you there.

Partners/MDs: how do you keep your sanity (and story straight) between all the political games, psychological maneuvering, and adaptive messaging that is client relationship management?
What’s your go to lunch? Are you allowed to leave & pick up or get delivery, or do you always pack one?
So sick of working hard to please the people above me and in turn they couldn’t care less about me or my wellbeing. Once busy season is over, I’m out. Can’t do another busy season.

How many people on dating apps looking for something serious? Upvote / respond age/gender ?
Need advice—I feel comfortable, but stagnant. I’ve been at my agency for three years and barely made any work for my portfolio, and haven’t been to a single production. However, I love my team, manager, and agency culture, and know that’s hard to come by… what would you do?
Just received my EAD and travel permit through marriage based GC. My current H1-B is not stamped. I need to travel out of the country - do I bother getting my H1 stamped or just travel using parole?
Anyone hear about layoffs at GT?
New AC currently doing internal work. While I understand it’s good to be seen around the office, would I leave a negative impression if I WFH until 2022 due to worsening covid situation and Christmas?
My manager is asking the entire team to work the weekend to hit a Monday deadline. Thinking of asking for Monday and Tuesday off next week in exchange? This seems reasonable to me. Managers would you annoyed with this response or request?
Has anybody (Indian national) traveled to Dubai / Abu Dhabi and were able to get tourist visa-on-arrival with expired H1B or a valid EAD/AP?
Walk down to the cafeteria to get coffee and a client is just rolling in with a novel in hand. This guy also leaves at 330 every day. Industry, God bless.
Traveling to Tuscany and staying near San Gimignano - any good wine tour companies you can recommend in the area? Almost all that I find seem to leave from Florence.
