Sounds exhausting. What if something goes wrong and they blame you? Pretty sure they’ll fire you if buggy code fails and loses millions under your watch?

funny

Go for it. If not let me know. Thanks

Give some context around the role

Well aware PS1. Im aligned to financial services and have seen the pace of my clients, mostly banks. Wasn’t sure if trading firms were faster paced though

Neat. Going to a "head of" from a manager role. This sounds like a big jump. Good luck

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?

Need advice. We have a member on our team that doesn’t follow process, ignores asks, and undermines those above. They kinda go off and do their own thing, implement their own way of doing things. They are deeply embedded in the culture and are well liked by leadership. The dept head continues to praise them on calls, even when they ignore asks, push back, do not follow process. Do I say something? Do I let live? I’m new to the team and find this dynamic really uncomfortable.
