You don’t have Consulting experience and they hired you as a Partner? Wow, you must be impressive

thank you. Yes- coming in from an outside but as an expert in my field hence the partner level.

I go gym shorts on bottom and a shirt I would usually put under a suit jacket on stop

Really depends on the firm and your role. I’ve been on calls with people in b-ball caps, full blown TV host look and everything in between. My suggestion would be to go with a blouse, done hair and some make up until you figure out what makes sense.

Depends on the crowd and the company - casual and nothing obscene is usually fine

I stopped wearing makeup and blow drying my hair in covid. After reading this thread I'm worried I've made a mistake. Do I need to up my game?

Most people have, in my experience. You’re in the majority. Also, what D3 said :)

I usually wear mascara, a long sleeved blouse, bun. Gym shorts or pants on bottom.

Everyone at my work place has kept it very casual, clients included. I think you can get away with a sweater or a casual blouse, if you’re talking to a large audience/presentation perhaps something more formal, otherwise I have yet to see any of the leadership wearing “work” clothes outside of very formal meetings.

Where are you coming in from?

I am the lone woman on the company leadership team. This is the 2nd time I’ve scheduled a 1:1 w the COO and he no-showed with no forewarning. I sat on Zoom for 10 mins both times. The purpose of the call was to discuss low morale and my opinions and volunteering on action steps. How do I communicate with him on this? Pretend it never happened and try a 3rd time? Confront it head on?
