Asians in Consulting

McKinsey has 42 new "affinity" APs... Of which only 3.5 are east Asian... Of which 1 is female. Ughh. McK won't include Asians in affinity week (recruiting events) and we're not included as an an option on the application... But they want to celebrate the 9 south Asian and 3.5 East Asian APs to get credit for dIvErSiTy eFfOrTs 🙄

I could discuss the merits and nuances of whether Asians count as diversity in corporate America all day... but you can’t have it both ways. Very frustrated with the firm.

The thing is that sometimes I see Asians undermine each other instead of helping each other. I think it is due to the fact that subconsciously they have competition in their mind because resources are scare at home/parent’s generation/descrimination. But they don’t undermine western people. Just my personal observation and I did say sometimes.

C2 white people are 60% of the population, even if half of them hate each other, the other half still strongly out numbers any other race. Asians being 6% don’t have that luxury.

We should start our own firms. It’s why there are so many Asian entrepreneurs

I’m annoyed that a white woman was selected as the leader of the newly created Black Action Council. I have no doubt that her credentials qualify her, but in an age when firms are saying they can’t get their diversity numbers up, they feel a white woman is best suited to lead a Black Action Council?

Quick poll: List your gender & a quick sentence on whether you like to work for male or female bosses (ok to say no preference). Me personally - Male - I’ve had better experiences working with male managers. I’ve noticed that more female managers feel disadvantaged and try extra hard to prove themselves (incredulous this happens in 2020), but in the process tend to be more demanding and stressful to work with. This is not intended to offend anyone. Just genuinely looking to learn and grow.
