Looking for a reason to stay in PA. Any one wants to share success stories of black women in PA? Partners, MDs, you name it....

There is no sugar coating it. It’s hard to be a black woman in just about any corporate job (my prior work experience is in banking), and consulting is no exception. I didn’t start as an MD (we aren’t a partnership), so I had to learn to navigate through each career level without the benefit of having someone like me there to help pull me up. But in the 15 years I’ve been in consulting I’ve had the benefit of having such good mentors and sponsors- mostly white men- who have helped me guide and grow my career and now I’m responsible for leading one of the largest regions in the firm. There is such a history of disenfranchisement, if there is any value at all to the current drive to get more diversity in leadership, now is the time to take advantage of it. But you can’t do it alone. Find a sponsor who can help you get a shot. It will up to you to be ready when the opportunity calls.

Getting ready to get a second hand car. I am eyeing a Toyota Corolla and Hyundai Elantra. Both in 2019 and similar mileage and price. Any car experts can give insights to the durability/quality?

Went to topgolf tonight. If it’s open, I’m going. Quarantine everything non-essential if you want compliance. I had a great time.

My boyfriend wants me to go to his apartment next week. I’ve been self quarantining in my own apartment and want to ride it out to be safe but he thinks I’m overreacting. Am I being unreasonable?
