I just landed my dream job at a big tech company but I think I might have benefited from affirmative action. The recruiter mentioned how I would add diversity to the leadership team of the product...
Tired/disgusted about all the gender discrimination and sexual harassment we face at work ? Me too. Post about your experiences on www.hesaidwhaaat.com
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.
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)
My company did an analysis of the diversity of our outside counsel based on hours billed and spend. Women billed more than half the hours but were far less than half the spend 😒
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!
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.
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!
Another win for diversity!
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

Hello all! Can a New York registered attorney file a diversity jurisdiction lawsuit in MA federal court while residing outside the US, and not running an office in NY? Any thoughts? Thanks.
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?
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?
Is having an all-female event in a company setting inherently sexist? Isn’t defining who is allowed to attend an event based on gender the definition of sexism and should not be allowed?
Getting ready to attend a few diversity/tech/women’s conference at target schools. Any advice from previous attendees on attire, general questions, advice, etc.?
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 have a controversial observation: Facebook seems to be using recruitment process managers to get diversity hires. I've looked at all the RPM hires over the past few years and every one of them seems to be a woman, most commonly a woman of color. I'm all for diversity, but this feels out of balance. Am I wrong?
Boutique firm or Big 4?
So my client is “business casual” but everyone typically wears suits without the tie. How do you guys structure different outfits? I feel like I’m running out of clothes already and need to buy more
Sister is mentally ill and born with brain injury. I'm sensing she's on her way back to psych ward, as she's displaying her crazy symptoms again. Not looking forward to this
Can you connect Seesaw to your Google classroom?
My H1B transfer to a new company got approved. But now deciding to stay with current company. Would there be any issues?
Raise the bar!
Am I the only one weirded out by these mass spreadsheets of individuals who have been laid off? Is anyone really looking to these for hiring purposes?
It’s pretty wild how much Big 4 demonizes people who leave. Even worse if you’re looking to jump to a competitor. It’s never that serious
What to prefer an why: 150k plus benefits at EY or 200k plus benefits at Wipro. Both roles are in tech advisory. Same location same role.
Plot twist in the Bezos story: he’s hiring some truly unsavory people to represent him, per NY Times. (I’m a little obsessed by the story.) Cont’d...

Best place to stay in Montreal? Prefer SPG but open to other suggestions. Not for work. Two trips planned: one with family, other for bachelor party (if that helps)
I'm a first year atty. I make $45K at a small firm of 5. In the last three weeks, my assistant has been fired (caught with pot on break), another paralegal quit, and now another assistant has resigned. I have a caseload of 80, with no help. Boss says they are looking, they made an offer, but if that person accepts, it will be weeks before they are ready. I'm falling apart and crying at my desk and can't sleep. Told owner. "Hang in there." Do I walk now? Or hang in there?
This article is a good read in terms of how to handle the COVID-19 crisis: https://blog.shrm.org/blog/promoting-workplace-mental-health-in-the-age-of-covid-19
Had a baby recently and, for the life of me, can't imagine going back to work. My husband also works extreme hours. How do you parents with demanding careers do it? I'm thinking of moving to industry.
That feeling when you get an exit row seat and find out your neighboring seat is empty 🎉🍻
