Does your gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, or other defining (lack of a better word) class impact your experience in practice? (Curious about good and bad experiences we can all learn from)
Does anyone have a diversity focused recruiter that they like? I’m tired of the lip service that my current employer pays to diversity and inclusion but don’t want to jump right over to somewhere worse. Thoughts?
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...

What’s the advantage of investing in precious metals ? What precious metals have you invested on and why ? Trying to diversity my portfolio
I’m a woman in my mid 20s and constantly face situations where people outside of cyber (still within the company) that I’m dealing with (older men in particular) who always push back against my cyber/technical recommendations even with managers cc’d. I studied, earned certs, and worked hard to get to where I am. Is it bc of my gender and age? In all honesty, I’ve written recommendations that male counterparts voiced in the past that had ZERO pushbacks.
It’s weird that a white person continues to ask me, a person of color, to take diversity training, right?
Let’s hear some stories of adversity and overcoming challenges. Socioeconomic, race, gender, disability etc. Work or personal. I think we all need some inspiration that we can overcome, no matter what.
I absolutely hate that HR essentially forces me to attend diversity workshops on how to be a successful Hispanic. Efforts should be focused not on race but economic background... am I the only one?
Of course Bezos tapped another cis-gender White male as his successor...why would we expect otherwise?
It’s 2020, are men still expected to pay on the first date or is it acceptable to split 50-50? Not trying to start a whole debate on modern gender dynamics, I just need practical advice.

After the whole diversity and inclusion push from my firm, I decided to try to create a Jewish group especially given all the anti semitism in the world. I sent an email to HR in beginning of august. It’s now almost September and no response (this includes multiple follow ups). They say it usually take 1-2 days to respond to emails. Hypocrisy?

Was it hard for you to adjust when going from multiple years of consulting (culture, environment, peers) to industry (laid back, "soft" for lack of a better word, more indirect than direct) What helped you make the move?

Need opinions.. Over a month ago, I applied as a Content Marketing Manager (3-5 years of exp.) at a software startup. It’s a newly created role at a company with ~15 people. I’ve been through 3 zoom interviews & one in person. I have created a video project, email newsletter, & have done 2 case studies as requested during the interview process. I was just asked to do another ‘final’ project.. I've spent hours on the others & I’m starting to feel like this process is too excessive.. thoughts?
I’m gifting 5 over responsible female bosses who are tired of chasing permission, perfection and praise and sick of the double standards they face in male dominated workplaces to lead confidently, embrace their brilliance and use a blend of masculine and feminine energy to be heard, respected, and gain the credibility necessary to move forward or move on with ease with a customized clarity session. If you’re ready, I’m here to support you.

Going back to work after my second kid in 2 weeks. Feels so good to get back from being tied down with non mentally stimulating things but can’t stop worrying about doing two jobs - cooking, cleaning, meal planning,responding to 100 emails from my kids preschool , pickups/drop offs, etc . My husband is good but he can only do things when I tell him to - even for changing the light bulb. He says Will take care of my older kid during weekends for me to do all planning, cooking cleaning etc.

Can anyone recommend any virtual creative writing classes? I’d love to get back to writing in a structured environment and@would prefer actual live classes (ie- online and live, not prerecorded). Any suggestions?
Now that my school is completely in-person, I’m noticing that the students who were online last year are pushing back on everything we do in school. Following the most basic of rules, directions, or fun is a struggle. I teach 8th grade, but I coach in the high school. I’m seeing it across the board. Is anyone else seeing this too? Is your school or district addressing it with any preventative measures social-emotional supports?
Listened to a podcast where the guy admitted he would hang out with girls so that he wouldn’t lose out on future sex, even if he had 0 interest in a relationship with her. I thought spending time outside of hooking up was a good sign they were interested in something romantic (going out to dinners, meeting friends, beach days, etc.), so now my head is all confused on how to trust someone’s intentions, even when they’re backed with actions.
