Have any of your firms or law departments planned firm or department-wide fundraisers, pro bono projects, or volunteer events that specifically offer legal assistance to combat racial inequality?

Any ideas, lessons learned or cautions would be much appreciated!

Got a bit too drunk at a work happy hour. Nothing embarrassing happened but I definitely blacked out and could’ve said stuff that I wouldn’t have said sober. Everyone else was also drinking quite a bit, so it was fine but not ideal and I’ve just been ashamed. Lesson learned. This happen to anyone? How do you get over the shame/anxiety of “what happened?”

Max 401k or use money to invest in my cash management accounts? I am maxing out the max my company will match for 401k but should I aim for the $19500 limit or invest the rest of the cash the company doesn’t match and invest it in my investment accounts?

Thoughts on exiting to IB subsidiaries of public accounting firms (big 4 corporate finance, baker tilly capital, bdo capital, etc). I know they’re not necessarily equivalent to going to a BB or even a pure play MM IB but can they still open up good exits and create better MBA prospects than say transaction services experience?
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?
Hoping to get some input on exit paths from tax. I’ve been at a small local firm for 2.5 years, got my CPA license this year, expecting promotion to senior after evaluations in December. Overall I’m pretty happy where I’m at now, the company has a good culture and no one works crazy hours. But I don’t plan to stay in public accounting for my entire career and have heard that the year after senior promotion is a good time to make a change. I’m concerned that
