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/
One of my favorite things about consulting is county of origin diversity. Can we do a quick poll here of various CoO represented. Put your flag and have the fellow nationals upvote!
Traveling consultants how is your sex life (don't include prostitutes)? How is your social life? Include your gender too. Thanks 😄
Having a kid. Is it still ok to bring them up with gender stereotypes? I mean, clearly I want them to do any job they aspire to, but will I be a bad parent if I dress the girl up in pink and boy blue?
I just watched the KPMG boss video and honestly I feel it can be interpreted in different ways. You can tell when a person says something to intentionally hurt you and when they can’t just fathom the implications based on how people interpret it. As we learn to work in an increasingly diversity focused environment I pray there’s room for forgiveness. Mind you I am a person of color. I believe in second chances and I don’t think he should have lost his job. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9253165/KPMG-boss-QUITS-video-showed-telling-paid-staff-lucky.html
Curious your thoughts on teaching gender at a 2nd grade level. 😬🤷🏻♀️ Personally, not okay with this. It’s hitting NJ in the fall of 2022, California typically follows then WA/OR. Teaching kids to be nice is one thing but this really is inappropriate (I feel) for such a young impressionable age. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/new-jersey-second-graders-learn-gender-identity-alarming-parents?fbclid=IwAR0LgpzzQ8Ozbmxzc1fCHHr35K0xvFT7B4O1zqUes3bFcRHIB6S-1qrEfpk
Does anyone understand why people list all three gender pronouns (e.g., she/her/hers) when one (she) would convey the intent? What am I missing?
I joined BKD as an experienced hire, and I absolutely hate it. I’m struggling to adjust the ultra-conservative culture and lack of diversity. Do I jump to yet another firm? Background in comments...
Do you get the feeling that there is a higher image promotion of women/minority people in Tech?I have seen way to many pictures from major tech companies that promote far more women/minorities than white males in their marketing materials.Wouldn't be better if we hired the best people no matter what the race/gender is?I know some companies are not publishing any gender/race stats but you cant't really demand a 50/50 ratio.Also there is no coincidence that most execs is some companies are British. So this goes both ways.
To all my friends and colleagues supporting the D&I cause, I apologize for the rant but please know that this is important to me: We are Latinos, not Latinx. It’s not a description of gender, it’s a construct of “our” language to describe the plural in the masculine form. Spanish just be like that, as does French, Italian, and German (and others). Stop appropriating my language and adding your colonial English grammar rules to it. Please. Pretty please. With a great big cherry on top.
Quick poll: List your gender & a quick sentence on whether you like to work for male or female bosses (ok to say no preference). Me personally - Male - I’ve had better experiences working with male managers. I’ve noticed that more female managers feel disadvantaged and try extra hard to prove themselves (incredulous this happens in 2020), but in the process tend to be more demanding and stressful to work with. This is not intended to offend anyone. Just genuinely looking to learn and grow.
Universities BUILT by enslaved Africans ON indigenous land ran by white men, with less than 10% of tenured professors of color have the audacity to ask us for a diversity statement 😂 Sickening
just bc I saw some uneducated BCG consultant go off on affirmative action today ...affirmative action/diversity hiring doesnt tip the scale in favor of minorities, it balances the scale
I’m Asian, grew up poor, was running the cashier for my parents takeout biz starting 6th grade. I learned the hard way not to put my race down on my college applications. I was lucky enough to score Accenture consulting out of my non-target. Now I’m listening to my coworker friends (Hispanic and Black) who grew up rich in NJ and CT, refer each other to diversity programs that help with MBA admissions and provide scholarships, talking to each other about the money they get to save from it.
I’m bored. Let’s matchmake. Age + gender: Your Profession: Profession you want to date: What are you offering:
Taking a poll... This is for people who have been or are leads/managers. Have you ever been told to “flex” your management style? Post your gender identity with your response.
This isn’t just about blue collar labor + day laborers. This would have a drastic effect on talent and diversity in advertising and other industries. Trump has no idea how important foreign labor is. https://www.bostonglobe.com/news/nation/2020/04/20/trump-says-will-suspend-immigration-over-virus-concerns/VFg3xBtttoPrFZYpYj5GbN/story.html

Potential unintended consequences of my parenting decisions is the most stressful thing ever. The “right” approach can feel so clear one moment, then feel like a huge mistake the next.
I am looking to get into consulting firms in the Netherlands preferably in M&A space. Does anyone have a recommendation for a recruiter or recruitment firm who could help me?

I am on a H1b and my client wants me to help in an international project. I would be splitting my time 50/50 in the US and working abroad. Is this an issue with the H1b?
Does want one feel like the credit system is against them? My score is between 650 and 700 I’ve been trying to break the 700 ceiling for a while now but can’t. I have student loans and CCs but that is my only down fall. Never missed a payment and decent credit length of almost 10 years. I even paid off one of my cards and my score moved maybe 2 points rather than the nice jump I expected. Just wondering if anyone else tracks it for financial reasons like getting a home or new car but feel stuck
Favorite family vacation spots in the US?

Can anyone recommend companies that have good maternity leave that do not require you to work for a certain time (like one year or so) so you can be eligible to take the leave?

Fiancé’s job now wants him to travel 50% of the time, has anyone experience how much of a impact this will have on our relationship? The good and bad
Finally leaving the country next week after 7 years (4 years of UG + 3 years of work). Never got H-1B. Unsure about how I’m feeling. This last few years have definitely been stressful. The uncertainty was overwhelming. Maybe this is for the better. I’ve spent all of my adult life here so far and haven’t left the US in 2.5 years. I’m surprised at how hard it is to accept leaving. Oh well, they don’t want us here anyway. Here’s to a better and more peaceful life in Europe.
I have a phone screen with Google for accounting / audit role... Has anybody gone through this before and any insights on what to expect?
I hear people trying to defend rioting, destroying, and looting businesses. I’d like someone to explain to me how anyone thinks destroying others property is okay. With stay at home orders going on for 2+ months and now total destruction of some businesses, there’s going to be little left once corona and the riots are over... what are these people thinking?
