I fucking hate the expectation that "men must provide" or "women must act a certain way". That's damaging to a lot of relationships. I love division of labor and working with each other's strengths and weaknesses without so much emphasis on gender roles. I'm a big supporter of utilitarian relationship that strives for the good of the partnership and each party.
#Genders Women, do you find it difficult to work with men? Men, do you find it difficult to work with women? If there is something you absolutely hate and would like to change when working with the other gender, what would it be? PS: I'm sorry for focusing on male/female genders in the question, but it's valid for anyone having different experience working with other genders than theirs.
Read this and thought it was spot on. https://www.npr.org/2019/08/06/744121321/even-a-grammar-geezer-like-me-can-get-used-to-gender-neutral-pronouns
Thoughts on the show Blackish? Diversity, Culture, agency life all covered. Would you say an honest reflection?
Thoughts on ad agency diversity data, now that it’s being released? “Across the entire (Havas) organization in the U.S., 6.11% of employees are Black, 10.8% are Hispanic or Latino and 9.66% are Asian.”
Hi all! I’ve been dating my bf for about 4 months now and there are some things he says/is into that make me believe he is either Bisexual or has gender dysphoria. I could really use someone’s advice who has a similar experience like this. Is anyone willing to chat? I just want to be supportive and helpful.
I’m an in-house litigator interested in transitioning to a hybrid litigation (50%) and diversity and inclusion (50%) role. Career suicide? Will it work or will I end up doing 2 jobs?
Do NOT claim you are "colorblind" in the workplace. 1. DE&I knowledge is now a core leadership competency. Colorblind claims will earn you the reputation of being DEI-ignorant at best & racist at worst. 2. Colorblindness within the context of workplace diversity is an obvious lie. You do NOT want to be painted as an intellectually dishonest leader. 3. Colorblind claims signal that you lack the leadership skills & vocabulary to have key conversations. Ask questions here, in this safe space.
Next question (based on a great conversation in 1 of the threads): how do gender roles and expectations play into your decisions about work and family?
How is the diversity in leadership, employees, etc… at the other consulting firms? I am at Deloitte (USDC) in FL and it’s primarily Indians.
What are some racial/gender/age based micro aggressions you’ve experienced in the workplace?

I want to share a really cool account I found on Instagram. She talks all about issues women face in the workplace, gender bias, etc., and she’s funny. Love her content. @themondaybest
Recently had my opinion shut down because “as a white male, I was coming from a position of privilege and could not possibly understand”. Excuse me? My skin pigmentation has more bearing than any life experience, education and past hardships and condemns me to being inherently incapable of ever being able to grasp certain concepts?
Interesting perspective on a group who gets left out of the diversity conversation. https://www.diversityinc.com/9-things-never-to-say-to-white-colleagues/
Just accidentally found out the gender. Was in a test result where it shouldn't have been. Am I crazy to not tell anyone else? Including my husband? I want to preserve the exciting fun surprise for everyone else.
What diversity and inclusion efforts have you seen work well in your respective consulting firms? Any? :) Particularly those aimed at racial D&I -- but def want to learn/borrow from other groups too.
Does anyone ever feel not respected or in some cases straight up disrespected on airlines or hotels in spite of status due to age, gender, race, or otherwise?
ALL WOMEN ARE WHITE - In conversations about gender bias & sexism, white women’s concerns are prioritized over all others. ALL BLACK PEOPLE ARE MEN - In conversations about racial bias & racism, Black men’s concerns are prioritized. Black women STOP expending energy for people who aren’t concerned about you. Use your energy for yourselves.
Agency producer here. I have an interview with an in-house agency tomorrow and I’m trying to prep myself/anticipate questions that the Exec Producer will ask. Any sample questions you guys can think of? I feel so rusty, it’s been over 5 years since I’ve interviewed anywhere. Very much appreciated!

Some of my friends who are parents said they're not worried about covid because it's very low risk for children. They know I'm a teacher and that I'm in a high-risk category. Makes me feel like they don't care about me.

Does Accenture have a Roth 401k plan?
Value Vs Price While selling something I believe in, I've always focused on the value to justify the price & leave a little room to negotiate. If I personally believe in a terrific, purposeful value packed product that commands a certain price- I would make sure it gets reflected the way you position, pitch and solves a crucial pain point like no other. Reason being simple- If you believe in something it's easy to sell Looking for my next play as Tiktok India had to restructure. Thank you!
