I found that a lot of white guys tend to think diversity is an over correction sometimes. Thoughts?
So I typically don’t answer the EEO questions at the end of applications that ask for race and gender. Lately I’ve noticed companies following up via email for this information after I submit the application. Am I the only one who does this? Does it even matter? Any thoughts on the follow up emails asking for the information after the application has already been submitted?
That bold subject line a few posts below cracks me up. Gender in the Workplace. Makes it sound like having a gender is a criminal act.
Poor recruiters. I know SUPER qualified/kind/proven pros who can't even get a response. Maybe because everyone's looking for PERFECT candidates who check EVERY. SINGLE. BOX. PERFECT portfolio (No meta-NFT ideas?) PERFECT experience (No brand-side meatless meat experience?) PERFECT age/race/gender ("We 'can't find' POCs even though they're literally everywhere! But 100% no cisgender Karens or 40+ white dudes!") Recruiters/agencies/brands are FAR from perfect. Why do candidates need to be??
As a white male that grew up in an affluent suburb outside Chicago, went to state University and now work in financial services, I realize my perspective has some major blind spots. I really want to get a better perspective of inclusion and diversity in the workplace and beyond. Any books or other recommendations?
This girl is the same age as me, makes over double what I do and went to a state school and majored in gender studies. So much for working hard in school and getting an in demand STEM degree 😅 FAANG or bust. https://youtu.be/KrB9iSd38LA
Hi, we just launched Diversity and inclusion committee at our work place and one of our many initiatives is to share some reminders /notifications about safety and inclusion in common employee platforms/portals e.g There’s no place or time when discrimination is acceptable. Please feel free to report to HR if you com across any discriminatory behavior. Anyone has any more similar ideas what other topics we can add?
What do you get for parents expecting their 3rd child (second of same gender)? My sister in law is expecting and struggling to do something more thoughtful then just money since we are due with twins a month after they are due.
Ugh. I didn't even have to finish reading the whole sentence before knowing the brilliance of this Idea. Way to go!! http://www.adweek.com/brand-marketing/johnnie-walkers-transformative-jane-walker-campaign-will-support-gender-equality/
Are there any locations that feel like their offices are diverse beyond just having a few black individuals? Like asians, hispanics, indians etc? For me diversity is beyond just black & white...
Since this topic comes up once a week on here: Is having a racial preference in dating racist? (1) it is, (2) it may not be your fault, you could have been conditioned by society to view one race as attractive, (3) no it’s not the same as gender preference, (4) yes this damages our community, basic emotional intelligence would let you realize this, and (5) pick up your phone and Google instead of asking here over and over. There is a wealth of research and history behind this topic.
Man...I'm so confused. Sitting in this class about Conscious Inclusion and someone made the comment that we need to start considering and including "White males."
Any white male who has recently won a Cannes or been promoted… have you ever felt held back due to your skin color or gender?
Please comment on this thread if you would like the bowl to provide an internet picture of what we think you look like, based on our interactions with you.
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
Just got feedback that I need to hire a more diverse team. My team is 70% women and I am an Asian women myself. What exactly are they looking for? This is the main feedback in my promo case and I have no idea how to fix it but don’t want to sound combative.
How to split rent when I make $85k and SO is making $500k? Moving to new city and planning to spend $4-5k rent/month, first time living together. Feels kind of unfair to expect me to split down the middle but not sure how to go about this.

Ethics training this morning: "examples of inappropriate behavior are.. Repeated, blatant disregard for personal time" 😅😆😂 don't piss on my feet and tell me it's raining
It annoys the hell out of me that airlines charge to check your bags prior to security but always offer to check your baggage complimentary at the gate. (Not that I want to check my bag, but still)
Still working noooo!! Where is my weekend??
This project keeps me wondering- why am I still doing this? Stockholm syndrome I guess...
Does anyone know anything about Workday? Would specializing in it too early hurt exit opportunities later on, assuming this is functional HCM or finance workday consulting?
We shouldn't laugh at PwC, none of us would have done any better: Deloitte would be back at the office congratulating each other and forget about the envelope, EY would have never gotten there...
What laptops are analysts and consultants getting from work these days? I'll start.. Crappy HP ProBook :(, you?
Anyone on here use robinhood? And if yes, how much money do you have invested through it?
Planning to have a baby next year. Recommendations on insurance to choose to get the best value? Sorry if this is a basic question. New to US health insurance policies.
Outside of going to a competitor what are good exit opportunities from being in the cloud practice? Something with more balance. Are B2B sales a path followed by some?
Thoughts on the Strategy and Transformation practice at Grant Thornton? Is it real Strategy work?
How to deal with a manager that literally doesn’t do anything and unloads everything to me? I do everything from setting up meetings, creating content, presenting (and simultaneously taking notes), sending recap emails, incorporating edits, providing updates to partner etc., I am aware that sometimes Managers do a lot of behind the scenes work but in this case he does 0. In the rare times he chimes in, it’s very evident that he hasn’t read through the material/has no clue what’s going on.
These interest rates are no joke smh
