increasingly wary of the concept of "cultural fit". wouldn't you want a diversity of personalities? isn't it important for business to have at least one skeptic in the room?
Any LGBT consultants care to share about their work experience? Being LGBT is awkward to me as I feel the lack of diversity but it's also not common to talk about.
Tryin to see which companies are gay-friendly. How’s your company giving importance to diversity and inclusion nowadays?

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?
I am new to consulting, and I just witnessed (virtually) a staffing conversation between a Partner and Director that a new project was to be staffed based first by identifying how to meet a quota for “diversity consultants” first. Please educate me. Is this the new normal? I am all about diversity in the work place, but I never encountered staffing by an internal diversity quota before.

Dog owners— does gender matter? I’m adopting a puppy and noticed people prefer female. I really don’t have preference but i’m curious the reason. Male dog owners- what are the cons or something i should be aware of when adopting a male puppy?
Inclusion question. I am not sure what gender pronouns my barber prefers. This person appears to be a male (full beard, deep voice, etc.). I’ve noticed that the Google reviews reference this person as a female and when I called the shop to ask for my barber - the person who picked up also used a female pronoun. Barber has never corrected me when I refer to them as a man… I want to be inclusive and respect their identity. How can do this respectfully?
At your firm, how would you say internal initiatives/ ENGs are split by gender? Flipping through some of ours, I’m seeing the majority are women. How can we get men more involved?
There are still gender imbalances in promotions. I think we should do what France does and issue fines for unjust promotions. See link
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.

I’m mid-level in my HR career at my current company and an upcoming Master’s graduate. Studying for my SHRM-CP too. How did you make the transition to that next level? What skills do you need, or is it really just based on YOE (I am the youngest compared to my teammates, many who have 10+ YOE)? I feel like career pathing is not very clear at my company. Each time I ask for guidance on this from my manager, I get told they’ll look into it.... would love some external mentorship and thoughts 🙏🏼

Is there a best practice for categorising your experiences on your external/public/LinkedIn type resume? Do you group it by project or by the type of work you did? Any other ideas?
Most of our engagements, if not all, are targeted towards operations, digital, tech, human capital that in most cases reduces the bottom line or increases top line for the clients. The engagement sponsor is happy and goes up the ladder and gives us an even bigger pie next time. Have we truly done engagements that were for the greater good of the world, climate, water, health, society, infra, education? Would love to hear some examples.

Hello! I am stuck with a problem and need help. I've been working at a start up agency with good pay and benefits for the past 3 months. The problem is, I recently decided to move to another state for my sanity at the peril of losing this job. Upon hire, my CD informed me that the agency wishes to have mandatory in office visits about 2-3 days a week in the future. Now my q is - should i look for another job, then talk to the CD, or should i speak to them now. FYI I do wish to stay with them!
Have an opportunity to go to a small vc firm as an associate from consulting (platinion) with terrible wlb but pretty great compensation (90k+20% bonus). What do you think? Is it worth it given the pay cut, probably looking at something like 70k, but interesting deep tech focus. How likely am I to make it to principal and partner?
