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!
Quick vent: I really hate when people aren’t inclusive! I invite my roommate out all the time with my friends and we have a great time. I haven’t received a single invite back. She definitely has more friends than I do in the area so it would help me out a lot to be invited & included to form a friend group. I even tried to invite myself and still no inclusion. Ugh.
I’m interested in switching to diversity consulting or something tied to inclusion work. Any insight into what companies/types of roles I should be researching?
When it comes to recruiting, is it good for the industry when the first word out of HR is "diversity" and not "talent?"
Once, a M friend said "men are stronger than women, I could dominate you right now" and at the moment I didn't know what to say cause he was in fact bigger and stronger than me. But this is something that bothers me still... I think people in general, regardless of gender, have different abilities and it is not a matter of comparing but rather understanding how best to use them, for yourself and for the society. It pisses me off to know ppl can think like this, and he is actually a good friend
I am all for equal rights and inclusion and diversity. If we are going to have real change. I need some insights from women fish. Why is it if the internet is down, computer or TV is acting up, it is my fault because I have a penis? This holds true from a diverse set of females - my mother, wife, daughter, etc. When is this inequality going to be addressed?
One of my favorite things about consulting is county of origin diversity. Can we do a quick poll here of various CoO represented. Put your flag and have the fellow nationals upvote!

How do you handle being asked to support “diversity recruiting” when you don’t actually recommend your firm to diverse talent? How do you manage the optics of saying no and potentially saying no repeatedly?
I was told by a PPED in NY today that the reasons I'm not up for partner is needing to lose weight, not being female or a diversity candidate, and not having the right family image (married with kids)
On a call with the CEO talking about diversity and they compare a person with tattoos experiencing prejudice in the office to Black people colleague experiences... Meanwhile last I checked, a tattoo was a choice and removable. Also depending on placement, you can’t see it.
Getting ready to attend a few diversity/tech/women’s conference at target schools. Any advice from previous attendees on attire, general questions, advice, etc.?
Is having an all-female event in a company setting inherently sexist? Isn’t defining who is allowed to attend an event based on gender the definition of sexism and should not be allowed?

Am I wrong in thinking it’s inappropriate to talk negatively about members of a specific gender or race at work? I’ve been hearing more of it recently.
I have a controversial observation: Facebook seems to be using recruitment process managers to get diversity hires. I've looked at all the RPM hires over the past few years and every one of them seems to be a woman, most commonly a woman of color. I'm all for diversity, but this feels out of balance. Am I wrong?
After reading many annual reports, I am really getting tired of the fact that female management board members are always HR. Often that’s the only female member. Gender equality has long way to go
Anyone here who interviewed with/ work for DoorDash S&O team? Would love to hear your experience and any advice. Thanks!

Anyone here a manager at Huron? Specifically healthcare consulting? Curious to your day to day, would love to chat. I spoke to recruiter for a Sr Associate position but she mentioned I could apply for manager. I’ve been a consultant for 4-5 years (but across 2 diff orgs) and have had few direct reports but hesitant on switch to manager?

Been on vacation for a week and I don’t want to go back tomorrow. Spending time outside, chilling with my dog and endless Netflix is so much better. 🙈
Tips for enterprise software Machine Learning Product Manager interview? Any recommended reading/advice?
I’m concerned about my mom’s health and want to work closer from home. Is this a valid reason for me to apply to a consulting job that is closer to home? I’m a recent college grad in the US and I’m the only child. My current firm’s office is ~2 hr from my (mom’s) home. I can’t live with and take care of her once the WFH is over. I saw that some of MBBs have offices pretty close to my home (~10 min). When applying to the positions, can I mention that I want to take care of my parent?
Myers Briggs personality test.... have you taken it? Enneagram? Whats your type? INTJ 1w9 here. 👇🏼 clearly why i’m in this role
Disclaimer: I do not find joy in the circumstances I am about to describe. Having said that, I am experiencing minor Schadenfreude in the “I told you so” sense. My ex-wife, who told my kids that the vaccine will turn people into zombies (srs), got the results of her PCR test yesterday and confirmed she has Covid. She has been laid up in bed since Thursday and is miserable. Meanwhile, I got a positive PCR result but am entirely asymptomatic. I do hope she makes a quick recovery.

What was that trainwreck last night?!?!? I know we're not supposed to talk about politics, but my comment is bipartisan. Our gov is a mess and our leaders unbecoming! What will our students learn from this? What can we do to make it a teachable lesson?
