Week 10 of 7 or 8am client Zoom calls. More and more bedhead every week. But damn southern women turn it out every morning - full face and big hair. Jealous of their energy.

D1 it’s a deeply imbedded cultural expectation. Many southern women are taught from a very young age that they are expected to always look their best in front of others, no matter the day or time. It’s a little more than just energy motivating them

Wow. Chauvinism? Really? Your “down there” comment tells me you’ve separated yourself from those lowly southerners PM1. It’s ok. We don’t mind. Maybe in some cases it’s a chauvinistic cause, but not overall. I’ve lived in the south for 42 years. Most of the women I know in a professional environment want to look professional. Whether you accept it or not, zoom meetings for work are a professional environment. You should ask some southern women why they do it before making assumptions.

Maybe because while the rest of us peacefully protest, they are getting their beauty sleep? Just saying.

@SC1 SM’s implication was that southern women care more about beauty sleep than racial equality. I was saying that there are many women alongside the men in the peaceful protests here.

I have had 7:30 am calls every morning for almost 6 months now. I forget how this isn't normal for others 🤔 I'm glad it's audio only though.

Does anyone have any advice on how to deal with discrimination as an Asian in the workplace? In my company it seems like it’s a white boys club where and they just promote white ppl because they’re white. And then they have a lower bar for promotions for minorities (traditional minorities likes Hispanics and African Americans). Meanwhile they make Asians do all the work. I am not generalizing that this is how it is everywhere but it definitely is that way in my workplace. Any advice?
