Kudos to the OP who shared her life story (about being pregnant and deciding to keep the baby despite the initial backlash from the father) and continuing to update us. Initially I didn’t get the dilemma, now I do. It makes me feel I’m a part of your life in some small way. Maybe it’s sad, but I really needed that during these difficult times. The support in this group is phenomenal.

To all expecting mamas at Deloitte, I just found out about this and hole it helps someone else too. The Bright Beginnings maternity support program is a perk we get that was buried deep in DNet. I found it thanks to another post on here. If anyone else needs it,you just call 18443867354 to enroll and it takes 5 minutes. If you enroll in your first or second trimester, you get $200 Vantage Circle E gift voucher. This is the same portal that deloitte uses now for applause awards. 😊

Hey moms, I’m 33weeks pregnant, just entering 34 and way too excited to meet my little one. I’ve nested the crap out of the past few weeks and feel like I’ve gotten everything I need, put everything away, set up the nursery, (includes watching all YouTube nesting videos there ever were) etc etc. I’m out of things to do and work is slow-hence bored out of my mind. Any tips or recommendations on how I can kill the last month or so?

32, 8.5wks pregnant with my first, and I found out last night that my Dad is leaving my Mom. I can’t say I’m shocked (they’ve never been happy), and I know my mom needs support. I’m struggling with how emotionally involved to get at this time and thinking about the health of the baby is stressing me out too. I’m so exhausted, and every few years they go through some big blow up like this (actually leaving is new). They know I’m pregnant, and I don’t expect them to put life on hold for me, but...

So I understand age discrimination in the general sense and I believe in it. However, I think something that isn’t talked about is age/gender discrimination against women in the reproductive age range. I feel like people could be looking at me and thinking: if we hire her, she might get pregnant soon. It’s so unfair and this is why we have a wage gap (or one of the reasons)! Thoughts? Any ways to get around this?

This is for the old timers. Is teaching now harder than when you started? With experience jobs are supposed to become easier. However, I started teaching when we still used chalkboards and attendance was hung by my door. I feel all these advancements that have supposedly made life easier has made our jobs harder.

My District decided to initiate a “no zero policy” starting now. I was informed by administration that when a student does not turn in their work, I still have to give the student a fifty percent even though that student didn’t earn it. I teach sixth graders and I am not sure how I feel about this. Any words of advice?

Hi 🐟, starting a grad scheme in Management Consulting at Accenture UK. Do you have any insights on standing out? I would like to transfer to their Strategy practice ASAP. On a side note, had a bit of bad luck as I aimed at Strategy Consulting in the UK so rejected BCG Poland for it and failed in a final round to McK UK, but then A did not think I got enough experience for Strategy so I'm looking for a genuine advice on this. I suppose interview wise I'm there.
