I have Moderna calls that expire on October 15 with a strike price of $300. Should I sell before S&P 500 inclusion and buy back in?
I wonder how the NBA and NFL will start to embrace more diversity and inclusion going forward. Any guesses?
I am all for equal rights and inclusion and diversity. If we are going to have real change. I need some insights from women fish. Why is it if the internet is down, computer or TV is acting up, it is my fault because I have a penis? This holds true from a diverse set of females - my mother, wife, daughter, etc. When is this inequality going to be addressed?
I am a POC and have enjoyed the diversity of colleagues that I have met in consulting so far. When I look at websites of PE firms, I see primarily white men from Associate all the way to Managing Director level. Why do you think there are these structural differences? Do PE firms not believe as much in diversity of thoughts/lived experiences? Do you think that consulting would provide more advancement opportunities than PE does for a POC, given the structural differences?
Which firms have the best Asian diversity employee groups and partner representation? Eg BCG Asian diversity network

I am a special education teacher and I was hoping to start the year by gifting my inclusion teachers with a little “survival kit”. If you were to receive something like this, what would appreciate finding inside?
Any ideas/suggestions on how to go about forming a diversity committee at a mid size regional law firm? I expect it would be met with some amount of resistance. Thanks!
👋🏽 POC Fish — Need ideas pls. I’m making a web training and want to show more diversity. What are natural hairstyles (m & f) that you struggle to wear at work? (Cont.)
I've gotten at least 3 'final reminders' from HR to complete the Self ID survey. Can't help but feel it's because of my last name...sorry, not gonna be a diversity box for you to check.
Another win for diversity!
Geninue question on a subject I don’t know enough about: If someone has a gender pronoun in their e-mail signature (e.g. she/her/hers), does that mean they are LGBTQ+ ?
Fam— would anyone be interested in a Glassdoor for black people? i.e anonymized reviews of companies from POCs. I think it would be massively helpful in gauging the diversity and inclusivity of a company outside polished recruitment processes and would publicly hold companies accountable. Thoughts?
Been working in PA for 2 years. No prior internships or business related work. Is it okay that my resume is just my associate role with like 15 bullet points? Not sure how to fill in the blank space, and it feels super lame to bring in non-relevant college jobs. Can I include ways I'm involved at the firm like mentorship and diversity initiatives?
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
When I was hired as an associate, I was informed that associates are paid within a certain range based on their graduation class year. I negotiated my salary, but was told the firm could not pay a higher amount because of the range associated with my class year. Fast forward one year, a new associate is hired (same class year as me) and I find out that said person, who is of the opposite gender, is paid approximately $50k more then me. Any advice on how to handle?
It just occurred to me that part of why I like posting on Fishbowl is that no one knows my gender

Hello, I applied for a controller job and they are considering me. I am currently a senior 3 but jumped firm and took a lower level to get in big 4. I think I can do the job but am freaking out now lol 😂. I am a CPA, I also have an MBA and a CFA , not that the MBA and CFA are relevant. I need help , how hard is the controller work?
Conflicted on choosing recommenders. Am in FDD so it’s not like I have a constant direct supervisor…(work with a different team on a deal by deal basis) due to covid drop in the market I was pivoted to another service line for 6 months (eg working capital, restructuring, commercial diligence, etc) and am thinking of getting a supervisor from this since it was longer term than the typical deal (2-3 weeks). Does anyone have advice on this?
Hot take. Is FAANG even a thing? Or was Cramer just worried about the acronym if he took out Netflix?

I needed some advise. This is my last attempt on H1-B lottery. I was planning on initiating my H1b lottery from an outside consultancy as well along with my current employer so that I have better chances. I wanted to check if that is legal and I can have multiple H1b filings from different employers? Thanks.
