Honest question: mid twenties white male with 720 gmat and 3.9 (finance) gpa from a top public university. Am I facing uphill battle for lack of diversity. Do I need a gmat bump above median for M7


I’m a SPED Resource/Inclusion Teacher which I really love. I really like working with the Gen Ed teachers maybe because my background is Gen Ed. I’m noticing many SPED team members go straight to the principal if they have an issue with a Gen Ed teacher instead of going to the teacher directly. Is this the norm now? What happened to SPED working with Gen Ed? Maybe I’m old school, but this seems so wrong to me. Thoughts?


Your age, gender, youngest you’d date, oldest you’d date. Go.


Why are town Hall meetings so impersonal? They are all about awards / the number of people hired. I know FCB health is large, but we never hear from people who aren’t Executives. Last town hall, when discussing inclusion efforts, there were no people of color represented and one of the 4 pillars of diversity was centered around our “reputation as an organization” (that really rubbed me the wrong way). At my last agency those conversations were always led by people of color from every level.


This could work in a great way of stress burster. I mean if we can connect to Likeminded from corporate sector, it's a mother level of great feeling. And if that is of an opposite gender that's something else ☺☺

I know most of the questions here will be on sexism or inclusion of POC but can we talk about ageism? Once we reach a certain age should we just leave the agency business? Is that fair?


My heart really goes out for the women in Pakistan, the amount of harassment they face on daily basis. I wonder why that is, is the root cause the extreme level of gender segregation.

Hello fishes, Do you have suggestions on Diversity & Inclusion activities that can be done virtually with a group? I found few ideas in google but would love to hear about any experiences and suggestions.


Latinx - help! We used this term in our diversity spotlight discussing Hispanic Heritage Month. One individual said that in English a group of Latinos would just be Latins to be gender neutral. I understand the word is controversial but is “Latins” grammatically correct? I assume we should just say Latin Americans, but trying to understand if Latins is also accurate.

Not out to my family, colleagues and most of my friends. I live my live quite freely and I haven’t had a GF so people could guess but they don’t. I don’t feel comfortable coming out yet and I don’t really like the concept either but there’s diversity survey we must fill and as a small company people would 100% be able to guess it’s me if I say I’m LGBT, or even prefer not to say when the aggregate stats are shown. I don’t wanna lie and say I’m straight though. What do I do?


Just got an offer at Deloitte. Feel like comp/rank are too low due to lack of diversity of interviewers. :( Can anyone relate?

Would it be wild if I added my preferred gender pronouns to my signature? (He/his)


Gender pay gap and Underwriting - I noticed in another thread regarding underwriter salaries that I had the most YOE out of the people who answered but I was the lowest paid. How much of this could be a gender pay gap? I’m 7 YOE / Female / Total compensation $63.4K.


Do any of you spend time on HNBA or other affinity organizations? If so, do you bill your time as non-billable, i.e. diversity? And how do you balance your time going to an events/getting involved?

Any consulting firms that are particularly good for Jews or which honor Jewish holidays? My firm has a Jewish diversity team but I’d love to learn about others.


I have been reflecting a lot about diversity recruitment pipelines and I feel like sometimes these are still not very diverse. Let’s remember that it’s not just about race and ethnicity, it’s also about background and socio-economic status. We need to uplift communities of color in which the majority of individuals identify as low-income. There is always a bigger picture that I just don’t think companies always consider.


I have often wondered if being honest when I fill out EEOC / diversity forms if that limits me from new work / promotions. I used to be able to hide my disability, but it is progressive so now it's not as easy to hide. Thoughts?

This is an interesting article on ADHD and executive function disorder that might be helpful to others:

My son now struggles with ADHD as well (of course) and I am digging deeper for his sake to figure out how to help little ones too young for medication.

And can’t impose judgment one way or another either.

Mood today is reflection. What’s the biggest challenge you have faced in your life? How did you overcome it?


Found out today my toxic manager bad mouthed me to an HR rep in a different division. This correlated with his bad management and abusive behavior. Luckily the new manager I’ll soon be working with dismissed it. Her words of wisdom “reflect on what you could have done differently, you can only control your actions”. How does that resonate for you? Have you had similar experiences?


Happy Friday!! A gentle reminder rest is productive and you are your biggest investment. If others can’t see your value then it’s time to leave them behind.

Good morning Fishies!! Question of the day. What’s an experience you’ve had dealing with micro-aggressions? How did you deal with it? Do you feel like you reclaimed your power and confidence?

My hands are shaking!! I just got off a call with my toxic manager who is clearly not happy I am being poached for another division. I tried to hold firm as he attempted to 20 question me, who was it, who wants me, what division, how did they find out about me? And of course the gaslighting of “why didn’t you come to me I could have helped or made introductions”. Clearly everything is about him. How have you handled such situations? What could I have done better with my abusive manager?


Monday Morning rumination: unsolicited advise is criticism.

Much to reflect on with this topic. Last week I was told in a 1:1 with a new contact that I was “too direct”. After some time chewing on the conversation I was struggling to place the emotions I was feeling. Turns out I was feeling guilty and shame for being me, for taking up space. Lesson of the week: unsolicited advice is a criticism of you, a micro aggression of who you are, and being “too much”. What would you do??
