I can't wait to hear the feedback on this one: Deloitte is nixing employee affinity groups for women and minorities—fixtures at many large companies—and replacing them with inclusion councils that have white men. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-07-19/deloitte-thinks-diversity-groups-are-pass
Do you guys use ”Hi guys” in the office to address everyone irregardless of gender or is that banned?
Any Latinos feeling left out of all this diversity buzz? Seems we are always invisible :/
Any female partners/MDs here? How did you overcome gender obstacles? Any advice to those of us who aspire to get there one day?
I have rollover IRA 180K all invested into FXAIX. Any suggestion on different diversity options and percentage I should invest in different options?
Any get offended that you’re used as a diversity & inclusion chip for presenting at orals because the other teams are bringing all men?
What diversity and inclusion initiatives/programs have been the most effective at your firm?
For any POC creatives, have you ever had to explain to a recruiter why you're considered a diversity candidate? This was the first time I felt like I had to prove my diversity/minority background.
When it comes to recruiting, is it good for the industry when the first word out of HR is "diversity" and not "talent?"
So I typically don’t answer the EEO questions at the end of applications that ask for race and gender. Lately I’ve noticed companies following up via email for this information after I submit the application. Am I the only one who does this? Does it even matter? Any thoughts on the follow up emails asking for the information after the application has already been submitted?
I’m a partner at a small firm looking to lateral. Many firms that were beyond my reach a year ago are now eager to pick me up. Firms that I should be selling myself to are instead selling their firm to me. (And I am a very confident person; no imposter syndrome here.) Is there some larger diversity push going on? Is it hard for bigger firms to retain female partners? Curious what the market is.
Producers, what changes are you making in your roles to promote lasting social change? Demanding diversity in reels? Pushing representation in casting? How can we be (and do) better? All ideas are welcome.
Best consulting firms for real inclusion?
On a call with the CEO talking about diversity and they compare a person with tattoos experiencing prejudice in the office to Black people colleague experiences... Meanwhile last I checked, a tattoo was a choice and removable. Also depending on placement, you can’t see it.

Tips for interview with EY partner?
Any tips for someone who discounts good feedback but heavily focuses on the opportunities to improve? So much that I have a fear of getting fired despite receiving overall good feedback. I started a new job earlier this year. The function of the role and industry is new to me. My manager told me he generally has higher expectations than the rest of the organization. Originally, I viewed this as a great learning opportunity but can't help to think I'm not cut out for this and fear the worst.

Our company has told us we can’t expense dinners delivered when working late at home for tax reasons. Has anyone else encountered this? Is it accurate?
I was at a job for only about 8 months because of a Covid-related restructuring. I wasn’t fired, but the role responsibilities materially changed so I left. How do I notate / message this on my resume?
🙋♂️Raise your hand if you think you’ve had COVID but never tested positive or tested positive for antibodies in the last 8 months.
Remember how Republicans keep screaming bloody murder about “cancel culture” while simultaneously making a concerted effort to prevent people from voting?
I need to learn a new way to speak about process improvement and efficiencies. I’ve learned I have a knack for this but it seems like such common sense to me that I struggle articulating this to people who just don’t get it. I have no certifications and have no interest in getting one… Also, can you actually teach process improvement to people who don’t get it or is this just a DNA thing. Help? :)
Somewhat of a recent hire - how hard is it to transfer into a different practice in consulting? Will I get fired for asking?
