SM asked me to “fix the gender ratio” on a pursuit deck where I had a team of 3 men and 5 women. Guarantee if it had been 6 men and 2 women he wouldn’t have batted an eye 🙄
I have pretty clear evidence of gender pay discrimination. Anyone have a California based employment attorney with expertise in this area?
Tim Castree (GroupM NA CEO) announced the creation of GroupM's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Board today via email. Out of 12, only 4 are women and 1 is POC.
Thoughts on Deloitte getting rid of diversity groups...it seems unnecessary to me. IMO Including white males in the discussion can be accomplished without disbanding groups.
Does this ring true for many of you? https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/06/upshot/pandemic-chores-homeschooling-gender.html
As I get into my 30s, I’ve noticed recruiters focusing more on maternity leave than anything else when I ask about benefits. I know that benefit is important to a lot of women, but as a child free person it kind of makes me uncomfortable that they are just almost assuming I want a baby because of my gender. Maybe just mention it instead of emphasizing it? It also makes me assume that companies might discriminate against me in the job process (which isn’t cool for anyone) over a man.
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
We need a contemporary version of Mad Men that reveals how fucked up and unethical our industry can be. Especially when it comes to diversity, social causes, and awards!!
I’m a mid-level working in a niche area in NYC. I like the work I do, put in long hours, high quality work, take time to mentor juniors, etc. I see myself at a law firm long term but now wondering if this is the right firm to make partner. Among others, one big concern I have is the non-existent emphasis on diversity and inclusion initiatives (they aren’t even pretending to care...), no committees, no statements in support of POC, etc. How do I find firms really committed to these issues?
NYTimes headline this morning: “Firm Behind ‘Fearless Girl’ Statue Underpaid Women, U.S. Says.” Settling out $5mil in a gender/race discrimination lawsuit.
It seems like every firm advertises that they support diversity and inclusion. What does your firm actually do in terms of mentorship or other programs for diverse attorneys and do you find it actually beneficial? My firm reached out about a mentorship program where they were supposed to pair us with a partner mentor who is also person of color, but I still haven't heard back.
From one HR to the other - what do we think about the level of diversity shown in this vid released by my employer earlier today? I think they‘ve done a nice job trying to feature a good mix but might‘ve actually „overdone“ it? Might be cause I’m used to male-only engineering lol https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6871427562401275904

It blew my mind to learn about compulsory heterosexuality and gender performativity. It’s weird because even years later of being aware of these concepts, I find myself having to unlearn things that were buried deep inside me without even realizing. It’s hard but it’s worth it.

I have an offer at another consulting firm, but have been reached out by my target industry exit opp for a role with comparable salary + more benefits. Problem is role doesn’t post until Sunday, but they are looking to expedite my interview and start date is Nov 1. Is it reasonable to defer the existing offer for two week or more?

Best time to quit Just got my h1b visa approved today. I want to quit soon. But my start date at the new company is jan 10th. The company holidays begin from 23rd dec to jan 1st. I am confused about when to quit If I quit before 23rd then I can give a good 2 weeks notice but I’ll lose out on my unemployment days(can be unemployed only for 60 days on h1b) . I’ll also get a good break before my new job. Can I put in my resignation just before the holidays to quit on 3rd?
Currently at EY senior 3 up for promotion to manager just interviewed with Deloitte and people seem great! Salary increase is amazing… is this a good decision hmm… you guys tell me.
