Have about $50K to invest. Mostly sitting in checking/ online savings accounts. Where to put the money? Would like to diversity. Average risk tolerance.
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

On a call with the CEO talking about diversity and they compare a person with tattoos experiencing prejudice in the office to Black people colleague experiences... Meanwhile last I checked, a tattoo was a choice and removable. Also depending on placement, you can’t see it.
Interesting perspective on a group who gets left out of the diversity conversation. https://www.diversityinc.com/9-things-never-to-say-to-white-colleagues/
When it comes to recruiting, is it good for the industry when the first word out of HR is "diversity" and not "talent?"
In your opinion, what can companies do to make racial diversity in management and corporate leadership positions a priority?
The best private school (best on ranking) in my area is an all girls school (K-12). What’s the pros/cons of sending my daughter to an all girls school? My wife and I both grew up outside of the US and have not experienced single gender schools. Looking for any thoughts /personal experiences. Thanks!
For anyone buying for one - how much do you spend on groceries each week (on average)? Pls age and gender too
Not in GPS, but I do get the emails from Dan Helfich and I just want to say he seems like a helluva leader. He comes across as authentic and genuinely invested in diversity and well being of his ppl.
Do NOT claim you are "colorblind" in the workplace. 1. DE&I knowledge is now a core leadership competency. Colorblind claims will earn you the reputation of being DEI-ignorant at best & racist at worst. 2. Colorblindness within the context of workplace diversity is an obvious lie. You do NOT want to be painted as an intellectually dishonest leader. 3. Colorblind claims signal that you lack the leadership skills & vocabulary to have key conversations. Ask questions here, in this safe space.

Currently talking to recruiters for a new job and it is honestly such a turnoff when they talk too much about having a strong company culture and/or talking about making sure I'm a good fit culturally. For me that borders on culty and is a red flag. I would much rather hear from a recruiter that a workplace's "culture" is that they are accepting of all cultures, diversity, and personality types.

I come from a racist￼, xenophobic family that thinks feminism is ridiculous - lovely people, I know . My nephew is almost 3 and such a sweet boy, for now. I want to buy him some thing for Christmas that is subtly educational￼ and teaches him the values of inclusion etc. Where are some good ideas on gifts for him?￼ I have already bought him the Marie Curie and Amelia Earhart books, which passed my family’s ‘screening￼’
By now, nearly every CEO of a major company has made some public statement or proclamation of their commitment to racial equality, diversity, and such matters. What percent of those do you believe truly comes from the heart and a bias for both personal and corporate action, versus a necessary public relations response with little personal ownership? My view: about 30%. That is still a great number, because it’s far higher than zero.
Do you guys use ”Hi guys” in the office to address everyone irregardless of gender or is that banned?
Was at an event recently. Seems like advertising really only cares about diversity as it applies to white women. I think this industry wants to stay white.
Has anyone gotten approved for Delta’s Reclaim My Status program? What documentation did you provide?

I started working in a agency two months ago, and I have two very big projects running simultaneously. My Creative Director left for paternity leave, and left me with all the work, facing the client, going to shootings, editing. I've been working 15 days straight, no weekends. The agency hasn't given me any back up/someone I can team up with to do the job. Is this normal? I'm used to have a partner, a copywriter or another creative working alongside. Keep in mind that I'm mid-level.
What’s your comfort level in being inside: open windows/doors with maybe 10 people in a biggish space considering Covid and being nyc based?
My manager doesn’t seem to have any boundaries - always saying yes to additional unnecessary work from the client and always working through weekends/nights/PTO/holidays. They are supportive of encouraging everyone else to have a WLB but since they don’t lead by example it ends up making me feel like I’m doing something wrong or crossing a line whenever I set a boundary with them or push back on a request that doesn’t align with our goals or priorities
Has anyone used cellphone damage protection benefits for amex plat? Any challenges and tips that I should know ? What are some of the docs that they require to get reimbursement
Anyone else still on unemployment because you know covid will strike out again when the kids go back to school in a few weeks (NYC) and it’s hard getting jobs, but will be even harder reapplying to unemployment again and waiting for processing times with no money in-between that period?
Has anyone here ever not negotiated for a higher salary when given an offer? Looking at one that is 25% higher than my current salary and I'm pretty happy about it but I always hear to always negotiate for more.
Serious question: Anyone know any good therapists in the ATL area for depression and anxiety issues?
need advice. I have been working in an interim role as a portfolio manager. I was promised that the role would be mine. However, after doing the job for 2 months, I have been advised that we might not get the funding for the role and I might not get the raise and the title but my responsibilities will be the same. Its a political minefield. How should I back out elegantly that I need to be compensated fairly and competitively from this mess without burning any bridges

Was upset with raise. Just got a text from mom. Dad is in the hospital. Called. She says he's fine. Can't believe I was bummed about my raise. As if slightly more money matters.
Any recs for a semi-affordable, last minute get away? I’m still 100% remote, I’m burned out & I need a change of scenery for a few days. I’d plan to go for a long weekend & then work remotely for part & take part completely off.
Had last stage interview b4 on-site last week and it went v well. I requested quick feedback cos I have 2 offers although this oppty is my top preference. It’s been a week of crickets. Should I wait?
What are your thoughts on Deloitte India vs Deloitte USI. Please suggest which one should be considered for Technology Consulting Practice.
