Dept goes to CCO concerned about company culture and the lack of respect and inclusion they experience. They want to brainstorm about how to change this. CCO states no one actually cares about compliance, defends the culture, and tells the team that they need to change or accept. CCO then gives team the cold shoulder/makes snarky comments in writing and verbally that team can’t require depts to “do stuff” and “endear” itself to them at the same time. Team is angry and bewildered. Contd.
Anybody who has felt maxed out in recruitment? What do you do? Do you try other industries first but stay in recruitment or do you try to change positions with more diversity of tasks? I now feel that everything I do is the same old, and although they say I am doing a good job, it is also a constant stress daily for applicants not showing up, failing pre-employment requirements, etc and I wonder if this is also present in other areas of HR.
Have about $50K to invest. Mostly sitting in checking/ online savings accounts. Where to put the money? Would like to diversity. Average risk tolerance.

What are some positive and negative examples of firms attempts to improve I&D (e.g., positive: expanding list of target schools | negative: recruiting "seasons" only available to one gender)?
Does anyone have book recommendations on gender bias/microagressions? For context: got into an argument with my dad bc he is moving and he said he doesn’t know about the mattress sizes “because that’s something a female who is into design and decoration would know” 🥴🤮 smh idk wtf a mattress has to do with design/decoration or women and this man needs education. thanks in advance
All this stuff with Kapernick and taking a knee and all that has got me wondering if we could participate in "corporate disobedience" to protest our agencies' lack of diversity.
I’ve been hanging with a coworker and their significant other a lot lately and I’m starting to get a crush on my coworker’s partner...and I think it might be mutual bc there’s a slight sensual tension whenever it’s just the two of us talking I left out gender on purpose just in case my coworker is on here lmao
I’m seriously starting to feel like “corporate diversity” means let’s hire more white women
Any women on here make significantly more than their (male) SO? I’m trying to be a good millennial and not tie my happiness to gender norms but every few months I get upset (cont)..
Really frustrated with the housing situation in and near Seattle area (with good schools) - thinking of moving , which city to move to - good schools, good outdoors, diversity?

LEK London fish, what are your thoughts on the level of diversity in the office? L.E.K. Consulting
Accenture, BCG, Deloitte & E&Y all signed up to be in the consortium for eliminating the gender pay gap. All the sudden I'm feeling the urge to switch firms!
Reviewing the results of the survey. Approx gender ratio of the bowl (considering reactions to be correct) - PU Office- M:F 2:1 ND Office- M:F 6:1 Thanks to everyone who participated.
People are always asking/publishing about executive-level metrics on racial/gender diversity...what companies have strong neurodivergent representation in management and at the executive level? This info seems impossible to find!
I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?
What was your "I know I'm done moment" that made you decide you were ready to leave consulting? I am at my second firm with a much better WLB but starting to question whether I need to just exit altogether. I also hear about many ex-consultants being "bored" in industry jobs so want to make sure I am really thoughtful about what it is I am looking for outside of a consulting role. I am over the hierarchy and politics in consulting but not sure it that much better in industry.
When you don't know an answer to a question, what is your response? Do you admit your ignorance or do you BS your way out of it?
Just moved here after taking what I thought was a decent raise to come - oh my god how do you afford to live here? I’m from downtown Chicago and that’s not cheap - but these taxes, rent prices, car insurance, gas 🤯🤯🤯
The number of women fund managers across many investment banks is falling and no one seems to know the reason why...
How's a US CMA vs CIMA? Big 4 M in a finance transformation role who's become somewhat of a generalist who knows GBS and operating model design. Looking at this decision to study as an accelerator to exit consulting and having a safety net to do so. Preferred roles are in finance business partnering, program management or key account Mgmt (won't need a finance degree for the last two, I assume, but will help to drive conversations nevertheless).

Anyone ever gotten COVID before an exam? I just got it and I test Saturday. I called about it and they said to cancel it and I might get either a refund or extension. If anyone has had this happen did you get an extension? If so, how long was it?
Anyone recently redeem Marriott points (specifically to Delta miles) and get an email saying it could take 6 months to process?
How many of you are the only woman at your firm/practice group? I’m at a large firm, but part of a smaller practice group (<10 associates). We have female partners, but I’m the only female associate in our group. I’ve become friends with one of the other associates. Someone recently joked that I’m his “work wife.” This really bothered me. I don’t think of our relationship as romantic at all. This is mostly just a rant, but can we please retire this term?
Think I accidentally discovered this morning that I can add external people to Skype IMing by having them join a Skype meeting.
