I love my job and the people I work with, but there’s one thing that really bothers me: the lack of diversity. Sometimes when I walk into the office and see everyone else around me as the only POC, it feels kind of weird. I don’t think anyone here has ever said anything racist or sexist to me personally, but I don’t feel comfortable talking about these issues with anyone because they might take it personally and then things could get awkward between us.

I kind of start doubting myself. It happened to me over and over again. When you finally know how the number works, you agreed from TB to accounting support, you find out it’s different out what the manager/senior thought. You just want to walk them through your finding and discuss plan and but end up with embarrassing them. 😂I just don’t know how can I survive in PA. Should I just do whatever they told me to do and wait to be thrown on the bus when everyone realizes it was wrong????

Does anyone else constantly get mistaken for a nurse? I get it, I'm 5'4 and Black and work in pediatrics, but the assumption and casual racism is kind of ridiculous when the actual nurse has just told you that the doctor's coming and then I walk in the door. Doesn't really help when I'm one of the only Black on-call physicians. Annoying.

Just discovering RSD after being diagnosed as an adult. I feel like SO MUCH of my life has been impacted by this and I just never had a name for it.

What do you do to handle it especially at work?

I received a report that my employees are having phone conversations with ex-employees and discussing work-related events. I am not physically at this location & I’m not sure if this is happening on the clock or not. All employees have signed confidentiality agreements. In our line of work it is important that we do not disclose private company information due to competitors and liabilities. Any recommendations on how to handle this?

Fellow Leads - what does your role generally comprise of? I find it can differ substantially in every company. My own, for example:

- Performance management with bi-yearly reviews
- Holiday/timesheet approvals
- Bi-weekly 1:1s to help with career goals, general queries/issues and AOB
- Review and improve workflows/processes
- Lead by example when involved in project work (throughput/quality, keeping within budget, meeting deadlines etc.)
