Someone in the country is going to say something amazingly stupid and hateful comment regarding Orlando. Let diversity and peace prevail.
Quite a few diversity posts have popped up, here are my thoughts and would like yours too: the end goal should be to have a work force that is representative of our country. Cont.
See this being shared everywhere on LinkedIn and Twitter: If white women continue to be the face of diversity, then what is diversity?
Hello! Anyone have recommendations of a good OBGYN in the Fairfax, VA area? I don’t have a gender preference but definitely would like someone experienced because I expect complications with my age and genetic stuff etc. I will be cross posting across other threads too.
Seems that Fearless girl was made by unfair men. “It became the financial world’s most iconic symbol of gender equality and won 18 honors at the prestigious Cannes Lions, including four Grand Prix” http://www.adweek.com/agencies/financial-firm-behind-fearless-girl-will-pay-5-million-for-allegedly-underpaying-women-and-minorities/
Has anyone done a 2-hr roundtrip daily commute for years? Unfortunately in this situation due to location of spouse’s job -it’s fairly rural and that area doesn’t have the same level of education (kid is about to start K), diversity, convenience, jobs opps me, stuff to do or parks as our current city has. Switching jobs is not an option for him unfortunately. I do feel very guilty about the long commute for him though.
I did a photo shoot for my firm’s diversity campaign and they made me look browner than I am to make a point :/ Not sure what to do
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.
I wish glass door would tell you gender. Would love to see how much more men creatives still get paid more than women.
How do you deal with non-accepting family members? I don’t make it a thing, but I’ve been advised to take off my tie and change into more feminine clothing around them. I am okay with not discussing my personal life, but I don’t feel comfortable changing my dress. So I just don’t keep in contact with those relatives. A therapist told me that I am not secure in my gender identity if I am not willing to take off a tie and show compassion to a family member who would be upset by it? Am I selfish?
Hello London folk. There’s a lot of great chat about diversity in adland on fishbowl, but it’s all very US based. So I’ve just started a bowl on diversity in London specifically - 9qo8f
The concept of PAR can be applied to racial equity and inclusion work as: Privilege Accountability Responsibility Privilege is reinforced over time - it does not happen suddenly!
You may be pleasantly surprised by people. I'm a proponent of visibility in the workplace. It may give strength to someone else that you don't realize may be struggling with coming out too. Plus, it's now a part of pop culture to be LGBT; and workplaces are leading the charge with diversity and inclusion initiatives. I leverage this aspect of myself in the workplace and upper management and partners frequently reach out to me to provide me with opportunities for higher visibility in the office strictly because of that aspect of myself.
Anyone here work for Accenture? Curious on the culture and what diversity looks like there.
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.
If I ever hear the argument "we shouldn't push this person, she has an excellent chance at promotion to start with and she'll additionally benefit from the Diversity targets" as an argument to OPPOSE someone's promotion, I may scream! Insight of my day: some of my colleagues are both sexist and quite petty. If this weren't a candidate I already support, I'd now be pushing this promotion just to piss them off!
Happy Monday all! I am working on a panel discussion with 3 business leaders for increasing young female talent/pipeline in Tech with an inclusion lens. What questions do you have at the top of your mind? Theme is enhancing D&I through building female talent pipeline. Any suggestions are welcome :) Thank you.
The Away story was an open secret for a minute now. But what I wanna know is who will open the curtains on agencies with similarly trash cultures? https://www.theverge.com/2019/12/5/20995453/away-luggage-ceo-steph-korey-toxic-work-environment-travel-inclusion
When will Booth issue interview invites?
Hey 🐠 - I’m new to investing and would like to set up a robo-advisor account. My investment timeframe is ~5 years (I’m on a visa, so I don’t want all my savings tied to a retirement account). Do you have any brokerage recommendations? I am looking at Vanguard’s robo offering, but it seems to be very retirement-focused.
Can someone please help me on how I can negotiate a higher salary, when a large component of my total compensation is linked to variable pay. I have cleared the final rounds of interview with a company, where the variable component is almost negligible and they're only willing to give a raise over my fixed compensation. PS The variable pay last year at my current firm was impacted due to onset of covid. :(
7 YOE (6 in industry, 1+ post-mba consulting) with working for a leading LS consulting firm. I’ve heard the level I should be targeting is AD / D for industry exits. I haven’t had much luck with roles at those levels (most interest has been at the Sr. M level). Am I aiming too high?
What is expected compensation for a 3rd year Director in New York in Accounting Advisory across Big 4?

If I make my home look like a W hotel, will it be an easier transition between home and the road??? Lol
Does anyone know the acceptance rate for the Wharton Lauder MBA/MA program? More or less competitive than just getting in to the MBA?
Just finished MBA; my start got delayed to November. I got another job in the meantime. Analyst role, I was crazy overqualified for it, but they’d take me knowing I was leaving in 4 months. Better to include this on my resume going forward, or to have a 4 month gap?
When you dream you're in a dark labyrinth with no exit, it might be time to roll off your project.
I had a headhunter reach out to me regarding a few open positions at Altman Solon, but before I go through the interview process, I’d like to know more about the company. Obviously they focus on the TMT industry, but what about culture, prominent service offerings, WLB, compensation, interviews process, etc.? ￼TIA!
Just made the switch to a technical product manager at AWS with 3 YOE! Beyond grateful for the advice I’ve gotten from this bowl. 90k as Deloitte C to 190k TC in MCOL. Networked like crazy to prove that I should get an interview. It’s possible folks 🙏
Since turning 25 my family is ON me to think about marriage. I’ve always struggled with the concept of marriage and truly always just dated for fun, with no end goal in mind. I am south asian and have somehow always dated non-south Asian men, but my culture is really important to me. I feel I have this idea that marriage is going to take away my independence and it’s never really appealed to me. How did you shift your perspective, if so? I am feeling pressured to start dating more seriously.
Can you recruit into non strategy groups of MBB out of MBA with a higher chance of getting the job? I.e McKinsey implementation or similar?
How do you know when you have enough money? I got laid off in the spring, but don’t feel a pressing need to get a new job right away. Have 3 rental properties, all paid off, get about $3k/mth net from that, have about $200k in a 401k and another $200k in more-liquid investments. I spend less than $2k/mth and feel happy and comfortable. Not married and no kids... but would like that one day, so thinking of maybe saving some more money for that. Anyone been in a similar situation? Any advice?
Anyone able to give a referral at Hubspot?
