One of the great things about consulting is that the companies are most often global, diverse, and inclusive. Wherever you are on your Iman journey know that there is a path forward for you. Many people are doing it. If you don’t stand up for your beliefs and even yourself, no one else will. It can be hard sometimes but one of the beautiful things about consulting is if you let your game speak, nothing else will matter to anyone else. It’s hard to put down a high performer.
Whatever you choose you will find support.

Consulting , the culture sometime throws me off. I like what I do but not sure about the whole culture and me fitting in that. Some suggestions around this. Just to let you know I’m a female.

What aspect of consulting culture do you not agree or feel you fit in with? Drinking / happy hours, or other things?

I would say stay true to yourself and don't feel pressured to do or not do anything.

Everything will work out as it's meant to insh'Allah.

sista, I've been in consulting for 7 years (I am a brother & African) and never had any issues or questioned with me not drinking which I didn't hide and will inform people due to religious reasons when inquired why. just be firm and comfortable. I usually turn down happy hours if at a bar unless it's at a place that serves appetizers. end of day be comfortable with yourself. I haven't smelled or tasted alcohol and I am proud to inform ppl why I don't. May god make it easy on you but don't feel guilty. Eid Mubarak
