Anyone in LA and have any tips/insights on how to get connected here? I moved here last year so still pretty new and have had limited opportunities to connect with others due to covid. It seems in both my dating life (F dating M) and trying to make friends (any gender!) people are very flaky. I’m wondering if there are places, groups, or just general tips I might not know of where people are more open and interested in making real connections. Any advice is welcome!
Ah yes, I often forget about that third gender
I can't wait to hear the feedback on this one: Deloitte is nixing employee affinity groups for women and minorities—fixtures at many large companies—and replacing them with inclusion councils that have white men. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-07-19/deloitte-thinks-diversity-groups-are-pass

Accenture, BCG, Deloitte & E&Y all signed up to be in the consortium for eliminating the gender pay gap. All the sudden I'm feeling the urge to switch firms!
I am fed up of my male cw partner who'd only write scripts involving male characters even though I am constantly telling him that we need to be mindful of diversity and inclusion. What should I do??

For anyone buying for one - how much do you spend on groceries each week (on average)? Pls age and gender too
🐠 who live or have lived in Chicago - how was your experience when it came to friendliness, diversity/racism, and access to Asian foods and grocery stores? I’m considering relocating to the South loop neighborhood - single person in their 30s, not interested in suburbia life
How’s the level of pay gap caused by gender in professional services such as consulting?
Curious to hear real examples. Have you/ coworkers faced discrimination in subtle OR outward manners based on gender, being LGBT? How does this affect your voice/ ability to perform to your fullest?
What do you feel about comments like “ diversity/inclusion/female/Asian initiative are overrated, people should be hired and promoted based on work quality” want to hear both pro and oppose sides
Sigh. Why do I *always* have to be the one to remind the team to ensure there's diversity in storyboards? 🤦🏽♂️🤦🏿♀️🤦🏾♂️🤦🏾♀️🤦🏿♂️🤦🏽♀️
When the industry said they were committed to hiring black people for senior roles they mean CHIEF PEOPLE OFFICER, CHIEF DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION and various other made up titles that make no sense!?? GTFOH .....
Want to make sure everyone saw this story about how important diversity is to other employees. It was inspiring to read your stories! https://joinfishbowl.com/post_div2oy
Yo EY, why do you currently audit Corrections Corporation of America, a private prison company? Are you just going to talk about Diversity and Inclusion or are you going to put your money where your mouth is?
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 am losing my mind here 😐 Moved to NY a year ago after a very successful global career (15+ yrs) as an Integrated Media Director /VP yet I still cannot find a Job Advice / Leads? A hug ?🤦♂️
Question— do you share your comp with close friends? Me and my roommate have been friends forever and while I don’t really share my specific pay, Im not sure if I should share it with her. When she got promoted she told me her comp tho I didn’t ask. Today I found out I was promoted (🎉) and left that part out. She asked me if I knew what my raise would be and I just told her the % but not the actual amount. Is that unnecessarily secretive? We’re in diff industries too.
My department head mentioned to me that there may be a high school teaching position opening in the future and they think I'd be good for it. I'm not sure I'd want to make the change because I've only ever taught middle school, (14 years!), and wonder how big the change in student attitude and behavior would be like? This year though, the kids I have are really draining and it's got me thinking. Would high school students be the same crazy behaviors or would their maturity make a big impact?
I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
Accenture 🐠 - what to expect in a final round interview with the MD? More cultural fit or more intense than that?

Just got done with a 2 hour argument between AA, Amex, and our travel support about who canceled my flight for Monday without notifying me and now paying double for a new flight
I was laid off in April when there was just email and phones. Cut to five months later and I’m working again. Yay. But suddenly it’s all Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides, Sheets. Email is dead. And phones are only for Zoom, Slack, Teams, Slides and Sheets. It feels like I woke up from a coma in a shitty version of the future and everyone else is fine with it. How did anyone adjust to this?
Does anyone know of an employer-based healthcare insurance package that allows one to add parents as dependents?
I’m crrently a Consultant at Deloitte w roughly 2.5 YOE supporting ERP Implementations.

What are your thoughts on the value of a Harvard Extension School degree vs. a standard online MBA from a reputable public university? I feel like the Harvard name carries a lot of value....
Any moms have trouble sleeping at night even if your kid is? He sleeps through the night (for now) but I have trouble falling asleep and if I wake up, I Toss and turn for hours. If I’m not in my own bed I barely sleep at all. This insomnia started during my third trimester
Can anyone provide some guidance to taking the CFE? As in which membership option to choose from followed by when exactly can we take the exam, if the entire amount is reimbursed or not?
