I would agree with ATK1, that it is not "great," but as a token white dude, I view this as perhaps the most important firm imperative to meet our business and impact goals.

The only caveat I'll point out on the survey result is that it is a global number. I suspect it wouldn't be as high in the US. But as a token diverse dude I'm encouraged by the things I hear from leadership and the actions of the firm

Firm places a lot of importance on diversity. That said, i worry that the firms believes its goal is to mirror the population at large when there are a lot of reasons why the population of people who want to be and are qualified to be consultants is strikingly different

Thinking about buying a home in the next couple of years either around the Chicago area or suburbs with access to the city. What’s the best neighborhood for a number of factors such as- diversity, safetiness, property value, school rankings, overall funness? I’m a South Asian man married to a White woman, so the location diversity does matter to me when raising kids. Thank you for all your help!

What are your thoughts on splitting everything 50/50? I've only dated men who take pride in being protector and providers but now running into men who want everything split 50/50.

Male boss insisted I share my take during a 1-1. He wouldnt let us change topic. Finally shared I felt there was a lot of subconscious gender bias from him earlier on, but let’s consider it water under the bridge. Ofc he was extremely offended. Rolled off the next week + CC gets feedback I’m underperforming & deliverables are disappointing. Never once did I hear this in weekly 1-1s. Checked current work product and it’s 95% still my content + minor revisions. Am I crazy for reading into this?

Do you feel like you and your SO need to closely agree on social topics?

Any advice on how to handle?
