What kinds of production diversity requests/protocols/mandates is anyone else getting right now?
Something I’m struggling with as it relates to the rise of the “Karens”. I get it, Karens suck and are very real but why is it that women always have to deal with this kind of stereotype? Men, especially Trumpian white men, are just as bad about their own privilege. Maybe they handle it differently or maybe people are less inclined to record them? I don’t know. But somehow it feels like yet another divide between women. Just wish we could make it less about gender and more about privilege.
Do any firm/office LGBT organizations recognize / incorporate intersectionality in their strategy and initiatives? I.e collaborating with other professional networks such as Latino, black professional networks, etc (overall diversity and inclusiveness) If so - would love to hear how!

I fucking hate the expectation that "men must provide" or "women must act a certain way". That's damaging to a lot of relationships. I love division of labor and working with each other's strengths and weaknesses without so much emphasis on gender roles. I'm a big supporter of utilitarian relationship that strives for the good of the partnership and each party.
Does this ring true for many of you? https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/06/upshot/pandemic-chores-homeschooling-gender.html
How does everyone feel about declining to self-identify vs Identifying (race/gender/military status). Better for you or worse? Looking to you HR managers, gatekeepers to our employment opportunities
I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
Once again liberals show how much they really want diversity and equality by banning conservative pundit Ben Shapiro from speaking at DePaul university. Way to go social justice warriors.

I know I want a job change but not sure to what. I actually enjoy strategy and consulting and want to make good money. I can learn and get interested in just about anything and I like diversity in my work. That’s all I’ve got so far. What else do you all consider in a job move?
Which change management certification is the best? CCMP? Is that less training than PMP certification?
In need of a gut check: I lateraled a year and a half ago to move to a location closer to my husband’s parents. I loved my old firm and was given good opportunities and was extremely cautious about lateraling, so I asked many questions during my interviews, including whether associates made their hours. I was assured they always did. Day 1 at the new job starts and it turns out I was hired with another associate for the same position. I can now go weeks at a time with just a few hours of work.
Is investment banking really that pathetic as a career? Thinking of getting into IB. I have 1 year in tech consulting, and 1 year in strategy consulting. I’ve been working with financial services and automotive clients. It seems easier to break into EB IB than MBB, and my goal is to exit into PE, preferably without getting a top MBA. Is it worth getting my wlb hit for 1-2 years?
If you’re familiar with the NYT 1619 project, they say slavery was a primary cause of the American Revolution and fight for independence. Since that’s the case, isn’t it indefensible that our firms close for this holiday and we as a nation still honor it? How can we claim to be inclusive when we celebrate a holiday meant to commemorate a war fought for slavery?

What r the chances of a person who’s only had in-house experience for 7-8 yrs to lateral into Biglaw?
