There’s been a rise in Diversity equity and inclusion trainings. My experience with these has always been terrible. How has your experience been? Anyone have good experiences? If yours has been terrible too, what should they have done differently?

I'm torn. Just like consulting, sometimes you need to fake it until you make it. If they don't start with something, how will we ever get anything? But on the other hand, we're at the point where people say things like bring your whole authentic self to work. But what they really mean is bring your mainstream self to work. And maybe there are a few things that are just outside of mainstream but have shown up in music or TV that are also okay. They're just throwing things to see what signals most lousy that they care. My only hope is that we continue building off of these things until they are impactful and they are real.

Is QEF inclusion dividend or not? Sometimes, I see QEF inclusion reported on Line 11i and sometimes on Line 6a. I think we can rely on Sec. 1293(c) but I think it’s not foolproof. My hunch is since QEF regime is tailored to treat the PFIC similar to domestic mutual funds, we should not treat the QEF inclusion as dividends. Any help is appreciated.

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.

We are a same-sex couple pursuing surrogacy. My spouse works for a Fortune 5 company.

Specifically, this employer’s fertility benefits provide up to $25,000 for fertility expenditures to heterosexual couples, and $0 to same-sex couples. How do we contest this inequitable employer policy?
