Looking to Connect with special educators in my first post. I am SPED with behavioral specialization in Elementary (full inclusion) - how about you?
My in-laws think any woman or black person in a leadership position is there because of diversity and that companies shouldn’t try to put any effort into promoting diversity in their recruitment because it harms minorities as people will always think those minorities are in a position of power only because they were hired because of gender/race quotas. They also think it’s perfectly justified in prioritizing hiring a woman over a man (all else being equal) because of potential for ‘me too’. 😣
In your opinion, what can schools and districts do to make racial diversity in management and corporate leadership positions a priority?
How would you suggest combating the “diversity hire” stereotype in your firm? A lot of managers at my firm don’t want to work with “diversity hires” because they think those people got a large advantage in the application process and aren’t as likely to be qualified as a result.
Any recs for an employment discrimination attorney in the Albany, NY area? Experience with gender/pregnancy discrimination would be a plus. Thanks in advance!
Just curious from the post below: is there a diversity hire at McKinsey & Company? I guess everyone needs to pass the same bar but maybe they get a little extra push than non-diverse candidates?
Since we're so obsessed with diversity counts, how many white employees does Burrell, Carol Williams, etc. have?
How do we feel about listening ethnicity in casting specs? Our clients say it’s important to ensure diversity, but is it counterproductive?
How did you cope with gender disappointment? I feel so guilty for not being excited but I just dreamed of having a girl and found out I’m having a boy. It sound silly
Companies need to not dilute diversity with this whole diversity of thought jibberish - there are real issues re: bias, race, gender and respect in the workplace. Education around how to build better
"I have no idea what it's like to have my life circumstances affected by my race or gender but listen up because I've got a really important take about discrimination"
Can someone share gender pay gap articles? The only stuff I found doesn't control for education and experience and just looks at the total average by gender. Would like to see the pay gap difference when these variables are the same. TIA.
Where are we on voting rights? https://www.cnn.com/2021/03/30/business/jamie-dimon-voting-rights-jpmorgan/index.html Huge client of our firms - we can talk a great game on BLM and diversity but can we be strong enough to stand up and speak out publicly in defense of voting rights?
How does Bain & Company do with diversity?
The problem with diversity is they focus on a quota rather than changing the culture of marginalized groups in the office. So often people speak over me, take credit for my ideas... and it's accepted.
Does working for Partners (particularly Boomers) of your respective ethnicity or diversity demographic feel like the ultimate haze? Do you feel like they haze you worse than your non-diverse peers?
Hello! Anyone have recommendations of a good OBGYN in the Fairfax area? I don’t have a gender preference but definitely would like someone experienced because I expect complications with my age and genetic stuff etc. I will be cross posting across other threads too.

Won’t get employee match on 401k until next year I believe. Should I continue to contribute 15% or lower it and wait to contribute more when I get matched? Or does it matter? Hope to get some advice!
Need ethics/moral help from my fellow 🐟 I got laid off from ACN earlier this year. I accepted an offer and started at a boutique consulting firm exactly one month ago today. This morning, I got an email from Deloitte recruiting for the same position I’m in now, which is where I want to develop my career. Part of me wants a break from the big consulting firms, but at the same time, going to a Big 4 would feel more at home to me. Is it worth entertaining the offer, or should I just stay away?
Laid off and unemployed for a while. How bad is it if I portray myself on job applications as still working at my former job?
Back in the day, I did my own PR, sales & marketing for whatever business idea I was running with at the time. What’s a good remote sales opportunity I can do anywhere in the world that won’t be painful or too high touch? Where I can use my social & business skills (markets, law, cloud, publishing, media, logistics, algos, social media, books, ebooks, design, podcasting, marketing, press release writing, voiceover, journalism) to earn a few extra shillings?
Today I listened as the client said to partner"this is just too much work for me, we will need to eng you for non-attest svcs" effectively screwing my December up. (Cont.)
I have 18 years of experience broken down as 6 years development in Microsoft products I. E. .Net, 12 years as a Sr. Business Systems Analyst in Detroit multinational company. My Tc is 120k + 15k bonus. When I read about people's post in this app I feel like I am under paid. Am I wrong to think this way? Do companies pay more in or near Detroit Michigan region?

Walking to my Delta Comfort seat only to see an overweight whale trying to breathe. This 3hr flight is going to suck.
Client layoffs today. About 10 people. Folks onsite described it as a funeral. Most of the client team is outsourced. Feels bad man...
New rule: if your project gets shortlisted, post a link to the actual work or case study, not a dumb square the rest of your connections couldn't care less about. Thanks for coming to my TED talk. #oneshow #clios
How does the holiday weekend impact your quota? Still the same? It's still the same for me, which I feel is unfair.
Any trips for a 30-45 min first call with a McKinsey recruiter for associate position? Currently have 6 yoe
Does anyone else think that it would make sense to invest in a company that is likely to be in front of Covid 19 vaccine? If so, which companies? Moderna, for example.
I saw a post about getting the vaccine and many responses. This article has good info about the vaccine I believe. Just read it. https://www.advisory.com/en/daily-briefing/2020/04/13/covid-young-people
