So with everything that’s happened with BLM and firms diversity and inclusion initiatives, what are the odds we get MLK day off as a holiday? Surely a little hypocritical to not celebrate/ appreciate the Civil Rights Movement with a day off?
Parents are deciding between moving to WVirginia vs Virginia for retirement to be closer to us based in fairfax, va(ideally be at 1 hour driving distance). They currently in the mid west but WVirginia appeals to them because of low taxes, low cost of living. We are also poc so appreciate some diversity. What are some areas you would recommend both in Va and WV? What else should they consider prior to house hunting? Dad likes to garden/farm as well so looking for homes with large backyards. Tia!
It blew my mind to learn about compulsory heterosexuality and gender performativity. It’s weird because even years later of being aware of these concepts, I find myself having to unlearn things that were buried deep inside me without even realizing. It’s hard but it’s worth it.
How about creating a list of all of the Head of Diversity and Inclusion folks at some of the top creative agencies...could be useful for a lot of us.
Anyone a certified Diversity practitioner? I’ve done a lot of DEI work, but I’m interested in formal programs/certifications/training. Thanks!
Do other firms have an Asian Diversity or affinity group? If so, what are some of the things the networks have done which have been helpful?
So how many more press releases of white women in leadership roles bragging about diversity will we admit they have taken over the conversation about diversity and are the only benefiting from it?
My work is highly focused on inclusion and today, while driving through the park, I felt bad for laughing at a group of larpers. They have nerf combat gear, too. I tried hard not to be insensitive to them being their true selves but i laughed … hard! And now I feel bad for laughing at them.
DMA: Do they even acknowledge your messages? If so, what’s your gender/ethnicity? I’m a fan, but wonder if they’re selective bc of sheer volume, or I’ve been ignored bc I’m not their peeps (white/M)😔
How do people find out if there is a gender pay gap at their agency? Is HR required to share this info if asked?
I'm gonna be real: People of color are 100% treated differently in my group. Diversity and inclusion are merely rhetoric and marketing collateral.
Thoughts on Deloitte getting rid of diversity groups...it seems unnecessary to me. IMO Including white males in the discussion can be accomplished without disbanding groups.
A WM was just named DEI lead for our department. He keeps talking and writing messages in ways which prioritize the aggressor’s feelings, the aggressor’s safety, and “positive intent.” He also talks and writes about “How to not jump from kindergarten to college in one conversation when it involves DEI.” He never talks or writes about inclusion or making things safe for BIPOC. I just needed to type this . Thank you for reading.
Holy crap, is it common in professional services to openly refer to people as "diversity hires"? I mean I went to the same top 20 b school, paid the same $120k, got the same 650+ gmat.
I’m a SPED Resource/Inclusion Teacher which I really love. I really like working with the Gen Ed teachers maybe because my background is Gen Ed. I’m noticing many SPED team members go straight to the principal if they have an issue with a Gen Ed teacher instead of going to the teacher directly. Is this the norm now? What happened to SPED working with Gen Ed? Maybe I’m old school, but this seems so wrong to me. Thoughts?
Hi folks, question on DEI Context: my company at the csuite level is full of white men (and 1 female as CHRO). I am in the DEI group that was formed to give more guidance to leadership. They are open but struggle to justify DEI (because all white, how can they know!) How do I get them to understand that 1) representation is important, 2) white men from varying white dominant country =\= diverse, 3) their white struggle easy vs. minority , 4) diversity hiring will not make talent pool worse?
I switched to EY GDS.So thought to come back with my experience.The process was absolutely hassle free. In 4-5 days after joining, I gave client interview.

Best top notch work. Technology consulting,Data & Analytics.
I feel like my classroom is really small. It’s an interior room, so there are no windows, which doesn’t help. I’m looking for suggestions that make my room feel larger and brighter. Thanks!

Hi, I’m an undergrad majoring in economics. I’m now a junior and couldn’t find an intern for summer. I am thinking applying to a one year graduate program in business analytics so I get more skills built up. Could anyone give me some advice about whether this is doable? I’m hesitating because I haven’t really taken much programming classes and most my coding skills are built up by doing research. Same with math. Thanks in advance!!
I've been single my whole life and recently discovered I very much have an anxious-avoidant attachment style with a narcisstic mother. Does anyone have experience dating with this? Desperate to change
27, got life insurance and disability insurance when I was 24. Not sure I jumped the gun there. Feels like I am just paying and not sure I need to. Have rental income, w2 income, and investing in stock market right now. Thoughts?
Mckinsey fishes: how common is it to be pulled for a specialty function BA position out of undergrad? Have an upcoming interview with McKinsey but not sure why one of the offices that expressed interest to interview me is considering me for a specialty function rather than general BA (of course, I indicated my interest in that practice). I thought that peoples resumes would be forwarded only to one office, but to my surprise (and delight) my second choice office also indicated interest to interv

Our school is terrible with implementing any kind of character education. They tried to this year but the lessons were thrown together and half the teachers didn’t participate. Any suggestions?
Infosys is hiring... Dm for referrals!
Hi D&A 🐟, I’ve been thinking of doing a career pivot from cyber security to data science. My current role is very technical and have experience with Python, PowerShell, AWS (SAA cert), Azure (Security Engineer cert in progress), and a bunch of other cyber security related technical skills. I have experience doing basic data analysis but not at the level of a data scientist. What would you recommend I do to gain these data scientist skills? I think the end goal would be to transition from cybe
Just got a new job with a great raise. Was underpaid before, so I had to monitor spending. I spent $2k on “stuff” this month and I know I should’ve saved it. Any tips to avoid lifestyle creep?

Anyone have any insight to starting a business as a 23 year old woman. I want to start a bar/lounge kinda establishment after covid and just wanted some professionals advice in how much money I need to save to start this up in a city like chicago for example.

Ladies I have a tutor to learn a second language and my tutor is late to every lesson. Not by a few minutes but at least 20-30minutes. I'm hesitant to find a new teacher and find new books, teaching style and so on, and I've mentioned I need to start on time but don't think she understands that this is bad etiquette. I don't think this is a cultural difference. I simply don't understand. How do you address someone who is always late and does not feel the need to fix it?!
