Best consulting firms for real inclusion?
I am frustrated as a Gay Woman who has given her all for 30+ years grinding to be the best. I have been in closet, out of closet, in-between and am tired of it. I want to be VALUED as a human being. I have gone from Rock Star to problem when people "found out". I have trained and promoted hundreds of people and been passed over for promotions because of not being a man. I have trained men with less experience, worse results only for them to move forward. If Diversity is important...prove it!
Do NOT claim you are "colorblind" in the workplace. 1. DE&I knowledge is now a core leadership competency. Colorblind claims will earn you the reputation of being DEI-ignorant at best & racist at worst. 2. Colorblindness within the context of workplace diversity is an obvious lie. You do NOT want to be painted as an intellectually dishonest leader. 3. Colorblind claims signal that you lack the leadership skills & vocabulary to have key conversations. Ask questions here, in this safe space.

Searching for new ways to increase our inclusion efforts with our ESL team members. What is your organization doing? Any new and innovative ideas? TIA
As a leader in cyber, one of my aspirations is to increase the diversity of any organization that I am a part of.
For example…When I was in Big4, I referred several diverse candidates who are thriving & now, at McKinsey & Company, I set a personal goal to refer 1 diverse candidate, especially in (but not necessarily exclusive to) cyber/tech/IT, for every month of my tenure.

Any WIT in Boston? I'm interviewing for a really exciting opportunity in downtown and would be relocating there after it's safe. Would love to hear about any groups or resources!
Bonus points for intersectionality and welcoming of LGBT individuals (I'm a gender non-conforming butch lesbian). Bonus bonus points for a group that isn't all white.
Also where should I be looking to live? I heard Boston has a lot of racism issues and is very segregated...
Help! I'm a Sped teacher (ELA inclusion) that comes home to a High Functioning Autistic 9 yr old with ADHD and a slew of sensory issues that has sworn off soap 🤢. I've made visual check list for bathroom processes, bought timers, tried different bars and body washeds with net sponges, towels and even invested in a pricey showerhead with multiple settings. His set of needs are out of my wheel house. I need suggestions before I just pack up and move out *sarcasm but at the end of my rope*.
We are starting to really address diversify and inclusion and build partnerships with community resources.
What do you feel is important in building out DEI program?
After 3 years, my partners and I are sunsetting our side project. It started with a brief we got at work. But we wanted to do more. So we made Secret Code to help eliminate the gender gap in tech.
Does BCW not allow conservatives to be employed at this company? I’m sitting through another meeting where we are highlighting amazing women and it is so politicized I am completely offended. AOC, Biden, Ilhan, Hilary... I mean at try to be inclusive when speaking of diversity. You can’t name a single female in the Conservative party throughout history?

Anyone here ever witness someone make a full career transition into being a DEI consultant, strategist, Manager or Chief Diversity Officer? If not witnessed anyone, maybe done it yourself?

Remote Onboarding question: I joined my company a little over two months ago, and I’m in a remote role. This is my first time onboarding remotely as I started at my last company pre-pandemic. Honestly, I’ve found it lonely so far. I’ve been trying to be outgoing and meet with everyone I can, but it so far feels like I have not been included as a full member of the team. Any advice on how to approach relationship-building? Any secrets to unlocking remote onboarding?
I’m depressed. Nothing unique about my depression - I’m in big law, my career defines me, when I’m not working I can’t find the will to get off the couch, I’m sad or I’m numb…I know I’m the only one that can make a change to my life…I’m on antidepressants. Just extremely unmotivated and paralyzed. Self-help books are not for me, but I am curious - has anyone tried a guided depression/anxiety journal? Any recommendations if so? Or, if you have experienced the same, what steps did you take?
Moving to SF this summer (best bet is July) for a full-time contract and I’m looking for a place downtown to move in, preferrably the 94108 zone (terribly sorry for talking in ZIP codes instead of neighborhood names as I’m relocating here all the way from Europe and the whole thing seems fairly new to me). Any advice on how to start my search, any sites/groups/forums I should keep an eye on, any particular watch-out, or any leads you’d love to drop? Appreciate every bit of help 🙏
I want to get a new job after my wedding in 2022 that will up my TC to $120k+ because right now I'm at $95k and feel massively behind on my goals (Coast FIRE goal is currently $250k but I have only $70k invested right now).

Hi any suggestions for good areas to buy a home? Looking for areas with good school districts and commutable to downtown
I really think that the insurance policy given by mediassist is way more expensive for parental insurance, means who will pay for 50k+ premium and that too for large copay, I guess the leadership team should intervene here....Parental insurance is really important for any employee and most of the time is only needed.
Recently I used parental insurance and found that the insurance company only paid for 50% of the total bill.

I have a confession to make: I am so damn tired of protesting every few months. Black Lives Matter. They have always mattered. Stop Asian hate. Stop attacking Asian families, elderly Asians, and AAPI-owned businesses. And FFS, give women back the rights to their bodies and a safe means of abortion, under every circumstance. The fair and equal treatment of ALL people should not be this hard to fight for.

Why not just pick the person who is most qualified for the job regardless of race, gender, etc.?
