A VP in my team always reminds me that “I’m LUCKY to be 1. a woman 2. Black and 3. Young” every time we go out for team drinks (In comparison to white men who don’t ticket the diversity box).......🙃

DEI in partnership. I’m in a large firm, and we are going through our list of partner candidates by practice, industry, region … new language today: “if you want to put up a male candidate, you need to put up a female candidate first.” While I’m an advocate of diversity and the need for explicit checks to avoid unconscious biases, this is getting uncomfortable. Are we getting closer to discrimination? Are we walking away from meritocracy? Disclosure: I’m male.

So I am seeing this guy, and whenever we go out for dinner we split the bill 50/50. Like he doesn't even offer to pay. But when we go out for drinks after dinner he pays. He's currently doing his MBA so loans and told me that money was always tight when he was a kid so I get it, but sometimes it's hard not to compare to my ex who used to pay for everything when we went out. But then again he had a range of other issues hence the ex... please offer some respectful thoughts to help me 😊

I’m a woman in my mid 20s and constantly face situations where people outside of cyber (still within the company) that I’m dealing with (older men in particular) who always push back against my cyber/technical recommendations even with managers cc’d. I studied, earned certs, and worked hard to get to where I am. Is it bc of my gender and age? In all honesty, I’ve written recommendations that male counterparts voiced in the past that had ZERO pushbacks.

This city has a lot to offer in literally everything. With such diversity in all things (people, food, sports, events, schools, arts, etc) and magnitude (population size and density), one should expect complexities that come with the territory. Illness, rent, subway, etc. Empathize with the current situation but don’t be blinded by the media’s reporting frenzy that profits off of your clicks. If you can’t deal, then don’t. But no need to project your superiority over a city’s pain.

If I am already well into the highest tax bracket and will be for the next ten+ years, and if I am inheriting a sizable IRA... do you suggest cashing out (with the tax hit) so I can grow it with diversity and flexibility or do I stretch and just take RMDs until I am required to empty it? I feel like I am getting biased advice from the institution.

Advice as I’m not sure whether it’s just “me”. A white male leader who’s always saying the “right things” about supporting female, diversity, being an ally, etc. I had many interactions with him, and his word of choice, statement irks me. For example: who’s your role model (a single person in the company), or put me more as second lieutenant role, made an assumption that I don’t have network, and always gave me the “rah rah” about my salary is good when I asked about comparison to my peers.
