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.
What are thoughts on Inclusion & Diversity messaging at your company? So sick of hearing it and not seeing better results.
Have you participated in LeanIn Circles at your firm? Thoughts? Also, let's please keep the gender issue hating comments civil if they come at all
Any Chicago 🐠 happen to be looking for a new roommate in June? My lease is up this May and I’m looking to find a private bed/bath downtown for under $1200/mo. I’m 23F, don’t care abt gender of roomie!
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!
So. Much. Diversity.
Hey ladies 😊 I wanted to come on here for some objective opinions about the highly publicized gender wage gap conversation...cont.
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/
thoughts on using who/whom as my gender pronouns? It has a side benefit of dodging responsibility😜 (ie: who's doing that work? exactly!)
increasingly wary of the concept of "cultural fit". wouldn't you want a diversity of personalities? isn't it important for business to have at least one skeptic in the room?
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.
Is there a better city than the A in terms of diversity, cost of living, weather, airport, and overall stuff to do (nightlife, outdoors)? Some contenders (although doesn’t fit every category) include Dallas, Houston, Austin, Philly, Chicago, NOLA, some FL cities, Seattle, Denver, & Phoenix in my opinion
I wish glass door would tell you gender. Would love to see how much more men creatives still get paid more than women.
thoughts on this inclusion thing? As a minority it seems to be a publicity stunt... for the pictures and social media posts... Just confused about why we are still talking about what needs to get done
Companies need to not dilute diversity with this whole diversity of thought jibberish - there are real issues re: bias, race, gender and respect in the workplace. Education around how to build better
How many people on dating apps looking for something serious? Upvote / respond age/gender ?
It’s weird that a white person continues to ask me, a person of color, to take diversity training, right?
Hey! I’m a self-contained teacher for grades K-2. This is my first year at the school I’m currently in, and apparently in the yearbook every year they have a class page solely for the handful of students in my classroom. They do this instead of putting my students in the yearbook page of the class they participate in for inclusion services. I feel like this is extremely wrong and violates some privacy laws. Do y’all have suggestions on how to bring this up with admin and the yearbook director?
Trying to jump ship to another B4 (more money, sr role) - interviews went great, HR told me they're working on an offer. One month later - nothing. What gives?

Insurance Q. Do you know when a big law firm will cut off your insurance after providing notice? Can’t find info in our system. My spouse likely has lung cancer and there are several expensive scans / procedures scheduled for Nov. I don’t want to pay cobra for November (if I can avoid it because we are hemorrhaging $$ right now). Firm is likely to show me the door the day I give notice. So I am trying to wait until Nov. 2-3 to do it to ensure coverage through end of month. Thoughts? Ideas?
Any tips on making a career transition now? How do I get to the client side? Is the grass just greener?
Does anyone moved to CNM consulting from Big4? Any insights into their work culture, wlb etc?
I have a friend who unfortunately was just laid off as a bank teller. He has four years of experience, but has never done consulting. Is this something that he could try his hand at? Or do you think that he should have more experience or certifications under his belt first? Trying to see if he can start as a consultant.
Is WLB better at S& than MBB/Tier2 or worse? I feel like it’s probably the latter because of Utilization/PwC culture, but want to validate.
I’m in discussions with a PE company regarding a strategy role. What is typical regarding equity, exit “adders”, multiples, etc. in compensation? Some of the comp terms they mentioned are totally new to me and I want to understand the landscape to negotiate appropriately.
