Any ideas/suggestions on how to go about forming a diversity committee at a mid size regional law firm? I expect it would be met with some amount of resistance. Thanks!
This girl is the same age as me, makes over double what I do and went to a state school and majored in gender studies. So much for working hard in school and getting an in demand STEM degree 😅 FAANG or bust. https://youtu.be/KrB9iSd38LA
Saw this on LinkedIn this morning. I must admit at times I don’t get questioned by just men but women as well who don’t understand why I’m working tirelessly for equality. They either state it’s an uphill battle or “all in my head.” Has anyone been told that gender equality is a mirage? How did you handle the situation? No wrong answers!

Would you confront a senior leader on inappropriate behaviour yourself (remarks about gender and race) or would prefer your coach to do that? What would be the merits / consideration that you should factor in?
NYC vs Chicago - considering moving out of NYC (obvious reasons :-)), though we love the city and like diversity and energy for our kids to grow up (no suburbs). Any thoughts/experience on Chicago?
What is the legal ratio of adults:students in an ECSE inclusion setting? In a reverse mainstream setting? Are Title I PreK classrooms required to have a para and teacher? What is the ratio for that? What is the legal ratio of adults:students in a mixed 4 y/o PreK setting? (#___ SPED+ #___regular=1 teacher and ____paras) Specifically in Louisiana, but curious about other states, as well!
Alright so fine there were not many diversity initiatives in the past and not a huge push to create more diversity in organizations. But now is the time you can change that. Moving forward you can put these these initiatives in place.
General curiosity... On job applications, how many of you fill in the voluntary form regarding race, sex, and gender?
Thinking about buying a home in the next couple of years either around the Chicago area or suburbs with access to the city. What’s the best neighborhood for a number of factors such as- diversity, safetiness, property value, school rankings, overall funness? I’m a South Asian man married to a White woman, so the location diversity does matter to me when raising kids. Thank you for all your help!
Have about $50K to invest. Mostly sitting in checking/ online savings accounts. Where to put the money? Would like to diversity. Average risk tolerance.
I'm glad we're having these conversations about race, gender, wages, etc in an reasonable way that doesn't involve flagging posts. As a black female it's hard to ask coworkers directly what (contd)
Does working for Partners (particularly Boomers) of your respective ethnicity or diversity demographic feel like the ultimate haze? Do you feel like they haze you worse than your non-diverse peers?
I recently got married and started talking to my sister in law more often. She addresses me as “Bro” EVERY SINGLE TIME. She knows I identify as female. I absolutely hate because it’s a sign of deeply ingrained patriarchy and I also find it disrespectful. I never address anyone as bro, dude, man etc because I honestly find it very disrespectful. I would rather be addressed by my name. How can I handle this situation? We are still forming a reltnship & don’t want to hurt that process. I’m Indian.
Is it diversity if you only hire minorities to work on diversity projects that make you, as an agency, look good? Maybe those people just want to work on stupid banner ads like their white coworkers
I have to be honest here I would love to work for McK someday b/c diversity matters. But when I look at the top leaders, I think Rich Lesser seems to be more authentic. BCG fishes how do you see Rich as a leader? I like his 2-min leadership lessons learned every Tuesday on LinkedIn.
Incompetent senior is up for promotion this year and is mostly likely gonna get promoted cuz she knows how to kiss asses. A couple people on her projects already quit and no associates want to (con’t)
Saw somebody at LGA that look just screamed deloitte analyst. I wanted to say something but couldn't think what. wasn't until now that I remembered the code word
Wow. Just had the most detailed dream about missing a connection in PHL due to issues with the terminal buses that was so vivid and detailed it took me way too long to realize it didn't happen.
If I get an offer elsewhere, with a higher salary offer, will Deloitte increase my salary to keep me?
Can anyone share experiences interviewing for security engineering roles, please? Would also love salary ranges, please. Thanks!
Recently started a new job. Now, Tier 1 company has called me and going through interviews. How much minimum time should I spend at the new company before again changing the job? Is it ethical? Thanks!
Are vaccinated people so concerned with the unvaccinated because they are worried about getting them sick? I mean after all vaccinated people can still transmit the virus just like the unvaccinated.
I get more nervous in client meetings when my Director or Manager are present, than if meeting directly with the client 😳
First time interviewing as an experienced hire. When a recruiter asks salary expectations, do I counter and ask for a range? I don’t want to go high & get dinged but also don’t want to get shorted.
Don’t hate on me plz. I’m planning to get an online or hybrid MBA with focus on information systems. I studied and worked in Control Systems Engineering and got into consulting at 27, manager at big4 now(33). My focus is to simply get better at what I do as I rise up the ladder. Would really appreciate any schools one can recommend. I didn’t grow up or studied in USA so really not sure which colleges might be better (?) than others.
I'm a new hire in EY and I'm truly enjoying my time, I'm getting to work with some great techs and the people culture is much better than at EY. I get a chance to speak to the partners and I rarely...
When someone gets fired/laid off but they keep their previous title/agency on LinkedIn, does anyone ever tell them to change it?
I have visa stamp valid until 2022. I am not in USA and planning to get back within a week, Am I allowed to enter ? Wife on stamped h4, is she allowed too ?
Has anyone taken one of those online executive courses, like the Harvard Extension School offers? Looking to use my $5k of tuition reimbursement and already have an MBA. Worth it? Best programs?
Would you leave Deloitte as a M for MBB but at one level down (SC equivalent)? I’m conflicted because I feel like I have a strong network internally and have lots of freedom to execute projects as I see fit but worried switching would take away all that plus move me backwards in role / responsibility.
Is MBB (mostly thinking about McKinsey) really that bad in terms of WLB? I feel like people tend to exaggerate things sometimes - i was told i'd be working approximately 65h at Deloitte in Tech Strategy and honestly that barely ever happened. I wasn't considering switching since I love my job and my team, but many people are telling me I shouldn't "waste" my potential at Deloitte (whatever that means...). They kind of got to me and now i'm looking for more info about the culture/work at MBB.
