The regional Black network and Hispanic employee resource groups joint leadership conferences are in Q2. It's 2 days with hotel expenses covered depending where you're travelling from. The one held in NYC is always dope but they're held in multiple cities. Make sure you sign up for the groups and look out for the email because it's first come/first served for a spot and they fill up same day.

Awesome! Thanks, can anyone regardless of tenure sign up?

You can look up your local office AAERG on the intranet site to get connected. I know the Chicago office has happy hours and other events and I imagine other offices do as well. And in addition to your office ERG, your practice will have an I&D lead that organizes events as well. They are usually really happy for anyone that wants to help out.

Pretty good I&D!

Thanks everyone!

Our black inclusion network shared bios of the newly admitted black partners at the firm. 5 are black women, and none wear their natural hair. Totally respect everyone's right to wear their hair as they choose, but feel discouraged that natural hair still doesn't seem accepted. Has anyone else noticed little/no natural hair at the PPMD level? Do you plan on flouting the status quo as your career progresses?

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?

Does anybody have an opinion on Accenture’s Workforce Transformation practice?
