Best consulting firms for real inclusion?
I am am Asian woman. I started a discussion about how we could improve our diversity and inclusion efforts on my UX team. I offered a possible solution. Out of a team of 14, only 4 responded, 2 female in support, 2 male with lukewarm and hostile responses. The silence is deafening from the rest of the team (all male). I don't want to be here anymore. I attribute this to being in Utah, majority white. Is it like this everywhere? Or if I change jobs, will it be better?
Not in GPS, but I do get the emails from Dan Helfich and I just want to say he seems like a helluva leader. He comes across as authentic and genuinely invested in diversity and well being of his ppl.
Any get offended that you’re used as a diversity & inclusion chip for presenting at orals because the other teams are bringing all men?
Everyone: We asked for diversity and visible minorities in this video. This edit shows 90% whites dudes... The producer: The guy in the first shot is latino and there’s also an Irishman and an Australian bro at the end 😑
Philly Agency hiring, and former minority staff have moved on/upward. Great group of people, with leadership committed to Diversity. Having a hard time finding candidates spread word https://www.20nine.com/about-us/
Yo EY, why do you currently audit Corrections Corporation of America, a private prison company? Are you just going to talk about Diversity and Inclusion or are you going to put your money where your mouth is?
The best private school (best on ranking) in my area is an all girls school (K-12). What’s the pros/cons of sending my daughter to an all girls school? My wife and I both grew up outside of the US and have not experienced single gender schools. Looking for any thoughts /personal experiences. Thanks!
How would you make the business case for adding more diversity to the workforce. I think we take it as a given that people will support this, but some people need to see $$ and #s to be moved.
What do people think about firms changing their gender affinity groups to use the term “womxn.” I know Twitch recently came under fire on twitter for using it with arguments that it’s actually more EXclusive than INclusive
For anyone buying for one - how much do you spend on groceries each week (on average)? Pls age and gender too
Minority friends (e.g. Ethnicity, gender, sexuality,etc) Microaggressions you experience weekly?
Thought: When you see diversity of skin color as the most critical factor you miss out of diversity of experience and ideas. Quite often these overlap, but there are a lot of people out there like JD Vance who come from poor white roots, but because of their skin color they’re assumed to have some magical privilege bestowed upon them by society. Likewise, wealthy people of color are lumped in with their less affluent counterparts. We’re so quick to look at skin color and see the sum (cont’d)
After reading many annual reports, I am really getting tired of the fact that female management board members are always HR. Often that’s the only female member. Gender equality has long way to go
Long story short - my nanny has many conservative values - mom shaming breastfeeding in public, gender specific roles, considering boys better than girls etc. it never bothered me before and I have learned to co exist with her however now my toddler is speaking and understanding more I am worried about him being influenced by her. Further she also has comments against my SO being too involved parent & calling out son as cutie, hugging toddler etc as he is a boy. Contd..
I’m still trying to process seeing an agency exec well known for dismissing and ignoring POC held up as an exemplary diversity champion for women at the 3% Conference.
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
For MBB interns who finish their summer internships and receive return offers, can they directly transition to FT? Or do they need to wait for some period of time
Anyone able to share what they know about the culture or lifestyle at LEK? Considering a role in their Core Services function, or Data and analytics function, but don't know a thing about the firm

Hi all, If in hr round of wipro they have asked the expected salary and they didnot negotiate about the number and said we will get back in a day with the offer. Does that mean they have accepted my number.
Hi Everyone! I’ve been thinking about potentially switching from HR to another field of work. I was curious to know if anyone on here started their career in Hr and ended up in a different field? Also, what field did you end up in and why did you make the change? Thanks guys!
I spend my days without showering, just eating junk food and watching puppy videos. What the bench has done to me..
In other news: Deloitte is full of trolls that are trying to convince you you're about to be laid off.

If you were going to leave EY and wanted a similar culture but didn’t want to step down in terms of perceived brand, where would you go?
I recently shifted my career from data analytics to strategy and feel very passionate about this field. I would love to continue growing down this path, but I’m uncertain of what next steps are, specially to continue working in tech. Would love to hear what your career path has been and if you feel like an MBA is needed in order to keep growing. Thanks!
