Would you confront a senior leader on inappropriate behaviour yourself (remarks about gender and race) or would prefer your coach to do that? What would be the merits / consideration that you should factor in?

I don’t think it would make sense for your coach to confront about this if they didn’t observe the behavior personally. They should guide you in reporting it if you want to, though. I personally wouldn’t feel comfortable confronting someone on a situation I wasn’t a part of.

If it is directed at you, I would absolutely say something. It depends on the situation on whether to do it right then and there or later in private. Depending on severity and intentions, you may also choose to share with your coach and/or HR. If you witness it, it depends on the situation whether you should interfere right there. But most certainly share with your coach and/or HR.

It’s not your job to ensure there’s a workplace free of harassment, it’s the job of your leadership. If you observe something, no need to put your neck in the line. Tell your mentor or coach and let them handle it. They’re the leaders in the org.

I’m a partner at a small firm looking to lateral. Many firms that were beyond my reach a year ago are now eager to pick me up.

Is it hard for bigger firms to retain female partners? Curious what the market is.

Advise on handling rates negotiations with BIPOC and non-male creators? I always want to accept first bid and get uncomfortable when my bosses push to undercut rates (especially now when money is tight), because there is a whole history of BIPOC and non-male people getting paid less. I’ve tried to push back but struggle to articulate this to them. (For the record, I’m POC female and my bosses are white males, and race/gender convos are already very difficult with them.)
