We spout gender equality, but often ask women to do things men don't get asked to do. From organizing lunches/events at work (pre-Rona), to babysitting our siblings because we are girls with motherly insticts. It is generally expected that women do certain things that are "for the good of the community" which is just unpaid work for no praise. Let's change this. Let's start the change at home and it will translate elsewhere If you won't ask your son to do it, don't ask your daughter to do it.
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?
Hey teachers! Have any of you ever used the program Transmath? It is a math program for secondary students. I am a high school inclusion special education teacher, and this year I am teaching a math class for some of my students using this program. I would love to hear if any of you have used it before and what it looks like in your classroom! Thank you!

Thinking about moving to a big city with the following preferences. I am thinking about Dallas, philly, or Chicago. What’s your experience living in those cities? Is there any other city I am missing? 1. Growing economy and population 2. Great food scene and things to do as a young professional 3. Relative LCOL can’t afford housing in NY, SoCal, etc. 4. Diversity of culture especially a bigger Chinese presence
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?

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.

Hi Ppl - I was feeling really disheartened and bad about something so thought will ask this group how you cope with it. I have worked at my job for 7 years and I have been passed for promotions for 3 years now. I can see there is a visible gender discrimination and things are not going the right direction anytime. I know I have to get out but I don’t want to leave without a good opportunity. My benefits are awesome where I am at so i am picky. My leaders tell me I am a super star but when it
(First ever post) I originally I joined this app to learn from others in consulting on a variety of topics (gender perspectives, comp, tips/ recommendations). Ever since downloading, I see more hatred and people making judgements on others with little context. Consultants are supposed to problem solvers but instead of people sharing perspectives I feel I’m back on Twitter reading threads that only create hate. Anyone else feel that way?
HALP! I usually go to bed at 11pm and wake up at 7am but I toss and turn all night and typically wake up at 2am and take 30-60mins to fall back asleep. My only caffeine intake is a can of soda around 2pm. I take all of my vitamins before 2pm. I tried melatonin for a week with no luck. Magnesium made me worse. I’ve had a sleep study done and I don’t have any sleep disorder. I’m in industry now and work 9-5 without a ton of anxiety. I have 4 school-age kids that keep me busy.
Hey everyone, new to the big 4 (only about 3 months) and I think I’ve finally got my bearings at the company. Anyone have any tips on how to network internally for being rolled onto a team? Like when I reach out to someone for a coffee chat, what do I say/ do? Ask about how they got into that role? Ask for internal work? Any advice is appreciated!

Hi all! Currently have an offer in hand and reading about owning stocks/options. Anyone know how soon after I join that I have to divest options? Also, can I just hold to expiry if I don't want to sell?
I received an offer from another agency (Agency B) that's a 15% pay bump, but I am happy at my current agency (Agency A). I have asked Agency A for a raise to match that (not mentioning I had another offer) but it will take them a few weeks to come back to me, and Agency B are wanting a response soon... What do I do? Do I go for the money? Do I tell my boss I have another offer on the table?
What are the chances a billionaire tax actually funds the spending bill? Won’t it just legislate forever and lead to taxes for everyone or more debt eventually?
It’s been 3 year since my ex and I broke up. We see each other from time to time with little interaction or conversation. The fact is that we have to cross paths for pretty much the rest of my life. My feelings about her were either annoyed and resentful. Those feelings lastedup until about a week ago. Since that point last week I have had a cloud of dread and a sense of sadness as if I missed her. Why out of no where does Thaifeeling come about? Has anyone on here experienced somethin similar?

20 year road warrior here. My wife & I made it work through teamwork & commitment. My weekends were spent at home. Doing family things. I know a guy who (pre COVID) traveled every week, yet found time to do 200 mile weekend biking trips with his ‘crew’. Almost every weekend. His family vacations always seemed to include a 500 mile bike race or some other extreme event. He is now doing this in Europe (according to IG). How do spouses put up with that?
