Might be a paranoid mom question - my 16 month old is starting daycare next week. So far, I’ve had virtual interviews/meet and greet sessions with the daycare staff. Today we went in for our in-person orientation and I noticed that my child is the only non-white kid in his class of 8. Not entirely shocking, but in my head (and having seen pictures in their catalog) I was hoping there would be a little more diversity. Should I be worried about my kid feeling left out because he looks different?
I recently got married and started talking to my sister in law more often. She addresses me as “Bro” EVERY SINGLE TIME. She knows I identify as female. I absolutely hate because it’s a sign of deeply ingrained patriarchy and I also find it disrespectful. I never address anyone as bro, dude, man etc because I honestly find it very disrespectful. I would rather be addressed by my name. How can I handle this situation? We are still forming a reltnship & don’t want to hurt that process. I’m Indian.
Just curious from the post below: is there a diversity hire at McKinsey & Company? I guess everyone needs to pass the same bar but maybe they get a little extra push than non-diverse candidates?
Your thoughts on Inclusion champion?
When it comes to recruiting, is it good for the industry when the first word out of HR is "diversity" and not "talent?"
How did you cope with gender disappointment? I feel so guilty for not being excited but I just dreamed of having a girl and found out I’m having a boy. It sound silly
Funny how now that “diversity” includes “white women,” agencies and companies can’t hire them fast enough. Where was the diversity when it included African Americans and Latinos?
Since we're so obsessed with diversity counts, how many white employees does Burrell, Carol Williams, etc. have?
How does Bain & Company do with diversity?
Best consulting firms for real inclusion?
What do DEI people actually do? Besides give the (mostly false) appearance of diversity within the agency?
The recent uproar on not enough diversity in Cannes jury is a similar outcry to the movie Dunkirk not featuring the Indian soldiers. Give it a break! We need “world class juries” not “world juries”.
Since the last post focused more on the source then the content here is a more neutral source. It also highlights the fact the mayor lies in her statements about the diversity of the press corps.
Currently in a play on ATOS that might be interesting for some. It’s a biotech with its primary drug being endoxifen aimed at treatment for breast cancer. Company has no debt and $138M in cash. It’s been announced to be included in the Russell 2K so there will be a predictable movement of ETF inclusion close to June 25. It also still has a high short interest so potentially for shorts to be blown out. I’m currently in 25k shares @ 3.35 holding into the 25th. My price target is $20.

Does working for Partners (particularly Boomers) of your respective ethnicity or diversity demographic feel like the ultimate haze? Do you feel like they haze you worse than your non-diverse peers?
How would you suggest combating the “diversity hire” stereotype in your firm? A lot of managers at my firm don’t want to work with “diversity hires” because they think those people got a large advantage in the application process and aren’t as likely to be qualified as a result.
Really afraid that MBAs will go back to remote and that I will waste the opportunity to get the time of my life
hey folks...what's your company's referal bonus looking like? $1000? $5000? $30 Amazon gift card? Has anyone made some serious extra cash with their referal bonus programs?
Going up for “early” promo to M after 2 years as SC (considered early since I do not have an MBA). Was on maternity leave so technically 1.5 yrs but have great track record in M role...
Masterclass is doing a promotion of 2 memberships for the price of one. Is anyone interested to split the plan?
I’m an Analytics Consultant looking for industry roles as a data analyst/BI Developer. I’ve had a few recruiters and job postings ask directly for a dashboard sample. I obviously can’t give them anything I’ve worked on because of client’s proprietary data and NDAs. Has anyone run into this problem before? Did you end up making a dashboard with public data solely for industry interviews?
How’s the design team culture at cossette?
I’ve been feeling really down about my job lately. Last night I randomly applied for a job at EY-P that I thought I perfectly fit the bill for. Within 12 hours I was reached out from a recruiter and was asked to schedule an interview. Even if it doesn’t go much farther It feels like the confidence boost I needed to know there are other options out there for me.
Anyone work at Kaiser that can provide insight on the culture and if it will be worth making the move?
Happy Friday everyone. Just wanted to check if anyone else is in the same boat. Recent agile promotion here, everyone mentioned $5k bonus and I was told I was getting it. I haven’t seen it…am I the only one?
have some bench time coming up as i end this project. what's the best way you all have spent bench time?
Hi Team.. I am looking for a job opportunity in Hyderabad in PM/ PMO domain. I have 5.5 years of experience in Core Engineering consulting services in PMO & Portfolio Management.

Please advise as I like Hyderabad very much and don't want to shift to Gurgaon.
Surely you mean ‘raise health with’. C’mon guys.
I don’t really know how this works . I got an offer for another big 4 to start in two months. I want to keep working till then. Do I have to inform HR/ my team that I will be going to a competitor....
Interviewing to crossover from plaintiff to defense work, wondering what a competitive salary offer would be from a firm in the V20-30 range, 5th year, antitrust practice. NY/DC scale. Thanks in advance
Maybe it’s burnout from a job where all the cool work benefits you could brag to your friends about are gone bc you wfh now and don’t have access to your cool office and now you work around the clock because there’s no separation between home and work and your agency has done next to nothing to help with that balance and you’ve billed more hours per week than you ever had and now your friends and family are starting to comment on your workload, health, and demeanor. Maybe it’s Maybelline ✨
Now that employees are going to WFH for a long time, what are your firms doing to help setup home office. Can you buy chair, desk, monitor or anything ergonomic to help employees
Lifetime prod co producer here, considering a jump directly to a BRAND - never been with an agency as either freelance or in-house, so it’s foreign terrain. Any pros / cons worth sharing? And most importantly - salary and benefits that are typical when going in-house? NYC here... Thank you!!
Has anyone ever received a 100% counter offer from Deloitte? I got an offer with base increase of 30% and project PMD is making an effort to match it. Is it advisable to listen to counter offer or tell them I have made my mind to leave
