I feel like my mother prefers another family member (not her child, but same age and gender as me) more than she does me. I was very excited for a recent milestone event in my life and so was the other family member, whose event my mom is definitely more interested in. Idk why I even bother, maybe I should just come to terms with the fact that my mom doesn't care as much and move on with my life without needing her validation

I am all for equal rights and inclusion and diversity. If we are going to have real change. I need some insights from women fish.

This holds true from a diverse set of females - my mother, wife, daughter, etc. When is this inequality going to be addressed?

After the whole diversity and inclusion push from my firm, I decided to try to create a Jewish group especially given all the anti semitism in the world. I sent an email to HR in beginning of august.

My agency is opening up applications for a committee leader for DE&I efforts for the first time ever.

Should I voice my concern?
