Great equity and inclusion resource from Cal State Long Beach. http://web.csulb.edu/divisions/students/documents/2020_Equity_Resource_Guide_ADA.pdf
I absolutely hate that HR essentially forces me to attend diversity workshops on how to be a successful Hispanic. Efforts should be focused not on race but economic background... am I the only one?
I’m a woman in my mid 20s and constantly face situations where people outside of cyber (still within the company) that I’m dealing with (older men in particular) who always push back against my cyber/technical recommendations even with managers cc’d. I studied, earned certs, and worked hard to get to where I am. Is it bc of my gender and age? In all honesty, I’ve written recommendations that male counterparts voiced in the past that had ZERO pushbacks.
Any LGBT consultants care to share about their work experience? Being LGBT is awkward to me as I feel the lack of diversity but it's also not common to talk about.
Let's talk about diversity and recruiting. I'll go first. I've had unconscious bias training and it helped me a lot. It taught me how to look a little harder at portfolios of candidates who may- con't
had a miscarriage (knew the gender and developed a connection) and trying to pull it together for my toddler. will start therapy but feeling so unstable. any tips to survive this? husband knows i’m sad but not as supportive as I want him to be.
Does anyone have a diversity focused recruiter that they like? I’m tired of the lip service that my current employer pays to diversity and inclusion but don’t want to jump right over to somewhere worse. Thoughts?
I really don’t understand the hate against Diversity and Inclusion efforts. I grew up hearing my parents worry about being passed over for promotions and denied opportunities, due to race. It’s a real concern for black professionals.
After the whole diversity and inclusion push from my firm, I decided to try to create a Jewish group especially given all the anti semitism in the world. I sent an email to HR in beginning of august. It’s now almost September and no response (this includes multiple follow ups). They say it usually take 1-2 days to respond to emails. Hypocrisy?
It’s 2020, are men still expected to pay on the first date or is it acceptable to split 50-50? Not trying to start a whole debate on modern gender dynamics, I just need practical advice.
"Ah, a question about gender equality. I'll refer that to the only woman at this table, an aggressively smiley thin blond white lady of no discernable age, to tell you how great we're doing"
Have you ever had a wonderful mentor (either male/ female /gender fluid) how do(did) you show your appreciation for them taking the time to guide you?

What’s the advantage of investing in precious metals ? What precious metals have you invested on and why ? Trying to diversity my portfolio
Inclusion question. I am not sure what gender pronouns my barber prefers. This person appears to be a male (full beard, deep voice, etc.). I’ve noticed that the Google reviews reference this person as a female and when I called the shop to ask for my barber - the person who picked up also used a female pronoun. Barber has never corrected me when I refer to them as a man… I want to be inclusive and respect their identity. How can do this respectfully?
What are your honest thoughts about gender inequality in the industry? Do you think gender has something to do with how far you go or is it just a matter of hard work?
I have been in consultant at a pretty well known and respected firm for the last 4 months. I am recent college graduate and like my company, but don't love my comp. When do recruiters start trying to poach? how often will firms cave to opposing offers instead of letting their junior associates go? as in, do firms really negotiate salary if I come to them with another offer? Or will they just be pissed off
Anyone know the comp for Accenture Talent & Organization Manager? DC Office. 5 years mix of consulting and industry w/MBA.
Don’t mean to sound stupid but would I be able to hold ETFs if I work at Deloitte (or any Big 4)? ETFs hold a lot of different companies/stocks so would there be a compliance/independence issue?
Anybody needs Marcus referral? 1% interest for both of us for classical savings account vs 0.5% otherwise. DM me your email if interested:)
Currently freaking out. I just got an offer from a startup that I plan on accepting but in the offer letter it includes that it’s contingent on passing a drug test. I took edibles three times over the past seven days (not daily) after going on a one+ month cleanse before this because the other company I was interviewing with I knew drug tested, and since I didn’t get it and was frustrated that’s how I chose to cope. What do I do? Do I delay signing the offer as long as I can?
Friend didn’t get promoted (actually a friend) and is now trying to switch to another big 4 to get the promo. Ideas of reasons to give for making the switch?
Hi All, has anyone gone through any case study pattern of interview? Where you are given a case study and then an interview? Like 4 hours total time. Thanks.
