Less of a question, more of a request... stop asking your junior BIPOC strats to work on BLM briefs because they are the only voice of color on your team. In a time where we need support grappling with our very REAL realities and how it impacts how we show up in the agency, the LAST thing we need is an “opportunity” to express our “unique POV” on a diversity brief (that we won’t even get to speak to none the less). Imagine having to chanbel your trauma into a deck to sell in an idea to clients?

While my boss is very sensitive to sexism, he often reminds me that I am only a 2nd year, and that sometimes people (attorneys in our firm, outside co-counsel, opposing counsel) treat me differently in accordance with my experience level, rather than because of my gender. I, however, believe that I’d be given a lot more respect as a male 2nd year. Small firm so we don’t have any male associates. How do I show him it’s my gender and not my experience level?

Anyone here work for FedEx? In the last six months or so, I’ve applied for three separate attorney positions in their Pittsburgh office. I meet the qualifications and the experience requirements. I know this isn’t an exact science, but according to LinkedIn, I was in the top 10% of applicants for all three positions. I can’t even get an interview. The positions seem really interesting and I love the company’s commitment to diversity. I can’t figure out what I’m doing wrong!
