The lack of diversity in this year’s winter interns is unreal 🙄

Or maybe we could stop judging people based on how they look and just hire the most qualified candidates because clearly PA sucks at hiring competent people

Lack of diversity at big4 in general could use a lot of improvement.

I would urge you to reconsider your definition and perception of diversity.... It's easy to look at surface level traits and assume that there is no "diversity", but you don't know the individuals backgrounds and experiences. I think that in general, people get too caught up and jump to immediate conclusions. That said, yes, of course improvements can be made, and we're far from perfection. However, in general, I believe that our firms are striving to be as inclusive as possible while hiring the best candidates for the job. It's to their benefit to gain multiple trains of thought and diverse talent. Not saying you're wrong. Just offering some food for thought. As always YMMV, but I find my office is very diverse (background, ethnicity, gender, etc.)

Is any of the big 4 still sponsor entry level h1b? Just wondering.

PwC doesn’t sponsor entry level h1bs unless you specifically work in some tech and specialty groups which require some special skills. KPMG doesn’t sponsor at all even you are a senior

I don’t mean to be vague but does anyone have experience or insights on if things are “better” as a black person working as a consultant or in house somewhere rather than in an agency? Any POV is helpful. For background I currently work at Ogilvy in a pretty junior role and I see NO ONE that looks like me. Peers or at the top aside from those in HR/diversity and in addition to dealing with the day to day reality of being a POC in corporate America, its hard to visualize a path to “the top”.

We spout gender equality, but often ask women to do things men don't get asked to do. From organizing lunches/events at work (pre-Rona), to babysitting our siblings because we are girls with motherly insticts. It is generally expected that women do certain things that are "for the good of the community" which is just unpaid work for no praise. Let's change this. Let's start the change at home and it will translate elsewhere If you won't ask your son to do it, don't ask your daughter to do it.
