I was told by a PPED in NY today that the reasons I'm not up for partner is needing to lose weight, not being female or a diversity candidate, and not having the right family image (married with kids)
@ legacy strategy PPEDs - in light of our supposed commitment to diversity and inclusion, what is the plan for the ED who is widely known for making openly racist and misogynistic comments in the office and on social media?
Is there a woman out there who is bothered by someone addressing a group as “”you guys.” Your opinion is the one that matters.
How do you handle being asked to support “diversity recruiting” when you don’t actually recommend your firm to diverse talent? How do you manage the optics of saying no and potentially saying no repeatedly?
Quick vent: I really hate when people aren’t inclusive! I invite my roommate out all the time with my friends and we have a great time. I haven’t received a single invite back. She definitely has more friends than I do in the area so it would help me out a lot to be invited & included to form a friend group. I even tried to invite myself and still no inclusion. Ugh.
So. Much. Diversity.
Accenture, BCG, Deloitte & E&Y all signed up to be in the consortium for eliminating the gender pay gap. All the sudden I'm feeling the urge to switch firms!
After reading many annual reports, I am really getting tired of the fact that female management board members are always HR. Often that’s the only female member. Gender equality has long way to go
Starting full time at McKinsey in November. Curious to know what it’s like for fellow gender non-conforming folk, as well as non-binary and trans folks at the firm (or as consultants in general!) Are there any trans/non binary people at your firm/office location, regardless of your firm? Just trying to gauge what kind of world I’m stepping into.
What's the worst case of marital infidelity you've witnessed at your firm? Offender's gender and level within the firm, + how you/others who knew reacted and handled it?
38F here .. for those of you on apps and seeking a relationship, not something casual, what are your age filters? Please specify your age and gender when replying
Once, a M friend said "men are stronger than women, I could dominate you right now" and at the moment I didn't know what to say cause he was in fact bigger and stronger than me. But this is something that bothers me still... I think people in general, regardless of gender, have different abilities and it is not a matter of comparing but rather understanding how best to use them, for yourself and for the society. It pisses me off to know ppl can think like this, and he is actually a good friend
Seriously hoping these numbers will get better https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-08-09/dimon-calls-jpmorgan-a-black-diversity-leader-numbers-disagree
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?
Am I wrong in thinking it’s inappropriate to talk negatively about members of a specific gender or race at work? I’ve been hearing more of it recently.
What's a very memorable or engaging networking event you attended? What made it so great (could be something from pre covid times too or from the present new norm if virtual)!
Nothing reminds me why I only fly Delta like flying American. A serious and heartfelt apology to those of you who endure this regularly...
Anyone already work out an optimal combo for a couple that each consults on earning? We aren’t super advanced so basic choice is either both go Marriott, or split and one go Hyatt and Hilton
Have a final round interview with the CEO of a startup (~300 person company) - assuming the job is mine, what question would you be asking to make sure this is the place you want to join? Any help appreciated!

Been looking at LinkedIn profiles for the acct/finance staff for a client. Many of them have B4 experience, but they all seem like they're doing dead end work. Makes me re-think exit ops. Advice?
We're going back to hybrid soon and my classroom is so empty, sterile and sad-looking. How can I brighten it up for my students and to lift my own spirits?
￼I am currently unemployed but I am very curious about everyone’s company signature having she/her or he/him or they displayed. Are companies forcing people to write the pronouns you need to choose? I honestly never understood why somebody that wasn’t in the LGBTQ community would ￼specify￼￼, and I know people are doing it to show support but if I started working again I don’t think I would want to put that in my signature. It seems political. What are your thoughts? ￼
What companies use product principles in their development process. LinkedIn is big on this - every PRD lists out “product principles” at the top and they’re heavily discussed. I think it’s an odd part of the product culture at LinkedIn and an curious what other companies do this.
What are some atypical interview questions you’ve asked or been asked? The one that caught me most off guard, though an easy answer was, “What would you do if you weren’t doing advertising?”
Rumors that were switching from salary model to hourly model, only get paid for hours you sync against chargeable WBS codes, a few questions on how this would work:
