McKinsey & Company 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.

Hey team! I've been thinking about what success would mean in terms of this platform and general inclusion in the team. These are some of my thoughts:

1. Frequency of positive engagements (positive in a productive, constructive sense)
2. Increasing numbers of people engaging in each topic as they get more comfortable using the tool and airing their opinions
3. Some measure outside the app of team engagement in day to day interactions (changes in psychological safety)

What are your thoughts?

The husband has a cushy state job, barely works 40 hours a week making $70k. I work too many hours and pass out at night trying to get my 2 yo to go to bed. Every morning when I wake up, the husband bitches about how I "don't cuddle with him at night" and I seriously want to punch his face and leave the house. He helps around the house a lot, but never understands what I deal with at work. Any advice? Please help me.
