Were you out at work or with your family first? Would also love to hear if it was your gender or your sexuality (or both) too.

I knew my sexuality as a tween and was out to everyone but my mom into my late teens. Gender has been a harder time for even me to wrap my head around since I'm realizing there were a lot of signs I ignored when I was younger. Out at work, not with family.

Work before family and just sexuality. At one job I was only out to the lgbtq group and not even my team.

Both but my work is understanding whereas my family is challenging...(only sexuality)

I was in high school, but my boss found out before my family did (my friend at school was his kid) Never enjoyed going to work more than that time in my life. To have the support of someone you look up to, someone you consider a leader, someone “above” you, all when your family is struggling to behave about it, was a godsent gift. Loved that job because of him and his support Sexuality to be clear. But every case is different obv. Luckily, advertising is a relatively liberal, open minded work space

uplifting

Do you care about diversity at your company? I just started a new job and didn’t realize how male-dominated and white it was until I sat in a meeting (engineers, PM) and it was 9 white men and just me (I felt pretty uncomfortable). During my interviews I only met the other designer who was one of the few POC women. Diversity in a company wasn’t a top priority while searching but may be in my next job search.

Married 🐠 - what are your thoughts on paying off your SO’s student debt? Not married yet but thinking about the future - buying a house, saving together. I have no debt & make over 3x what my SO makes. They are swamped in student debt, which I can easily contribute to pay it off quicker once married. Thoughts? Any change in response considering gender? I’ve read posts here of men paying their wives student debt but never the opposite..

We are a same-sex couple pursuing surrogacy. My spouse works for a Fortune 5 company. This company says it stands for equity and inclusion and it offers as an employee benefit coverage for fertility-related medical expenditures. 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?

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.
