Plus Size Consultant Posse

What is your biggest challenge as a plus size professional ... wardrobing? Air travel? Perception/image? Energy/stamina? Outright discrimination?

Wardrobe/appearance. I feel like I always need to be performing “good plus size” i.e. full make up, excellent outfit, etc., especially on client site, to be taken seriously. I’ve spent so much money/time buying clothes online because physical stores don’t carry quality/fashionable plus clothes. I’m in a more creative role do I can get away with not wearing a suit/skirt/blazer as long as I’m excellently put together - if I had to do true business formal I’d be completely hosed.

Air travel. I usually try to target the planes with the slightly larger seats.

Absolutely. Businesses can be ethical by treating people the way they’d want to be treated. 3 ways Airbnb can do this: Aggressively fight fraudulent listers, let Airbnb members control their data (allow data requests/permissioning/deletion from any state or country), and oh - make it easy for people to get their money back if their travel was affected by covid-19. How not to be ethical: marketing ethics vs living them.

I had my comp call, but my snapshot still isn’t available in SSC. Will it automatically become available on the 15th? Anybody else having issues with this?

If come October, the US ends up with a fraction of the original Covid death projections - let’s say 80k - and a lower death rate than the European countries, would you call Trump’s response a success?

I’m ex-Cap, I left last year (I was in DCX). If anyone from Cap that has been impacted by the recent layoffs would like help reviewing their resume, please feel free to DM me here. I’ve been dedicating my weekends the past few weeks with helping folks polish their resumes. There is no expectation of anything in return. Take care and please know that there will be better days ahead.

I see a lot of posts worried about layoffs, but does anyone else think we might get a sales uptick from business trying to find ways to recover in the near future? (downsizing, process efficiency)
