I feel all the forms are still in “talk” mode when it comes to race. It’s on their radar, but I don’t think anyone has a clear solution. Someone above mentioned the major benefactors are white women, I feel that’s true. We’ve seen more of them have nurturing, development, and starting to see more of them hit PPMD. For black people specifically, I think it’s tough for non MBB firms. Go to any top MBA campus (where most of the firms hope to get their black talent), and 99% of the blacks that are going for consulting are MBB or nothing, and rightfully so. I think firms will start giving more funding to resource (Latin, lgbt, black) business groups. Which is helpful to give the opportunity for us to get together to do more events, but it doesn’t solve the problem that we really are a minority

None.

I was asked by my director to join a diversity and inclusion leadership group today. Feels nice to be recognized as someone who could help lead an initiate, and I guess I qualify as diverse because I’m a woman and my technology practice is mostly male.

Especially from people who don’t identify as Caucasian.

honest opinions ended! am recently engaged & could not be happier about it. The ring is stunning and I LOVE it, it’s exactly what I wanted, however, there’s an inclusion on the stone that’s a dark dot that is extremely noticeable to me. Even arms length away I can see it. I never cared about the grading of the stone or if there was inclusions, as long as they weren’t visible to the naked eye of an average person. Am I terrible if I ask to go back to the jewelers & try swap the stone?
