We always talk about diversity as being important, which it is, but if you don’t have diversity of thought what’s the point. We’re selling products to the masses not our very small advertising bubble.
JamesLyonSSwe Is on Tik tok: graduated from Stanford , got his first internship at the 10th grade, interned as NASA during high school, worked as a researcher at Stanford, yet completed over 400 leetcode questions. Current a Software engineer at Airbnb and HE’S STILL LABELED AS A DIVERSITY HIRE under the comment!!!! This is the problem!
When agencies post pics of their white staff, and boasts that they’re all about diversity, I call BS. A diverse house doesn’t mean the IT person or the receptionist- unless they’re also creatives!:)
We have a team to promote diversity in our department...everyone on the team is straight and white. This really blows my mind.
I cannot stand when the men on my team start calling eachother "dude" and "bro". Am I crazy or are these slight microaggressions? It feels like a flaunt of masculinity and makes me uncomfortable as a female in the same conversation.
NYC vs Chicago - considering moving out of NYC (obvious reasons :-)), though we love the city and like diversity and energy for our kids to grow up (no suburbs). Any thoughts/experience on Chicago?
If anyone is interested in pursuing an IB summer internship for summer 2023, especially freshman and sophomores, recruitment and preparation season is NOW How to approach it? 1) Network - send out coffee chat emails to alums or any professional at the firms you want to apply to 2) Prep technicals, behaviorals 3) Insights/Diversity programs - look for any that are still open and apply ASAP if you qualify, they can lead to an accelerated interview process 4) Find when apps usually open
Would you be turned off by a guy who asks you out on a coffee date and then has you pay for your own coffee? I ordered at the register first (he ordered right after me) and when the cashier asked if we were paying together or separately, he said separately. He has a high paying job
Are you actually a recruiter if you’re not a very attractive white female? But seriously only recruiters I ever see fit that stereotype, where’s the diversity?

Any single men in Dallas Fort Worth area? Transferring to be closer to family from DC and not looking forward to the lack of diversity (or texmex, whatever that is) 😫
Anybody who has felt maxed out in recruitment? What do you do? Do you try other industries first but stay in recruitment or do you try to change positions with more diversity of tasks? I now feel that everything I do is the same old, and although they say I am doing a good job, it is also a constant stress daily for applicants not showing up, failing pre-employment requirements, etc and I wonder if this is also present in other areas of HR.
Can someone share gender pay gap articles? The only stuff I found doesn't control for education and experience and just looks at the total average by gender. Would like to see the pay gap difference when these variables are the same. TIA.
Really need advice/opinions. My close friends are having their wedding the day of my son’s 1st birthday (poor planning & lack of consideration on their part). I could move the bday to the following wk but I’m 1) hurt they didn’t ask if we could make it if we’re in the wedding party 2) already canceled our gender reveal, babymoon & baby shower last yr due to covid & this is the ONE thing i was looking forward to now that we’re vaccinated. Moms what would you do? How would you feel about this?
Is there a gender pay gap in accounting? At least in public I feel like that'd be hard to see, with salaries pretty standardized for LoS and location.

Is anyone else just depleted? I am deep in my bones exhausted. I'm a mom of 2 girls (6 & 9) and my partner is a firefighter/paramedic & a nurse. In the past 14 months I went from a SAHM to working full-time when my youngest went to kindergarten. 5 months into my position in a new industry...quarantine. At that time it was chaos! Home schooling, the commodity market of PPE, all of my teams marketing, no communication from management, scheduling hell and forced PTO to be home for hybrid learning

If you’ve interviewed via Zoom/WebEx/Teams etc. recently, did you use your personal computer or work computer? My personal laptop is old and the camera is nowhere near the quality of my work laptop. Is it crazy to use my work laptop? Side note - the interview is via Microsoft Teams, which we use in my office for internal communications. I’m comfortable with the using the platform, but have no idea how meeting info is stored.
Is Grant Thornton still making people travel for advisory? Specifically risk advisory for NYM area. Was wondering if covid changed things so there would be no more traveling
Seeing the “3% pledge for pay equity” popping up next to agency names here. Interesting that our Global CEO is a woman and don’t see us on that list. We also have the worst parental leave. 🤔
My work friend told me their therapist said to them that they were the most antisocial and negative energy feeding client they ever had. I never want to be friends with this person because being evil aside, who has sufficiently poor judgment to share this with a work colleague? Am I being harsh?
Does anyone know which automotive companies offer H1B visa. I’ve applied for my Canadian citizenship but it is taking forever.

Is anyone else at B4 getting slaughtered? Wait listed everywhere so far despite 760 and above average stem GPA at all schools i applied to. Leadership is probably a weak point for me ill admit but certainly not non existant and I know my ECs are above average. I feel completely blindsided
Need advice- How do I make my LinkedIn profile more attractive to recruiters from FAANG or MBB apart from listing the relevant experience? It seems like all recruiters that are reaching out lately, are from small firms and for jobs with lower compensation than my current position. When I tell them my desired compensation they think it is too high.
Deloitte 🐠, How’s the culture and employee retention like in your provider (hospital) consulting team? I believe this team is under operational excellence or performance improvement. Thanks!
For those of you who attended a FT MBA program, what did you do when you were not in the classroom? Besides traveling, partying, studying/homework, interviewing, etc. Were you often attending events to network, getting lunch with faculty, enjoying a hobby, something else? Thanks! *Repost*
