Any ideas to do networking here? Thinking about doing zoom calls if people are up for it
I am the partner leading our local office lgbt group. What should I be doing to engage more with our people during this time? Zoom once a month only goes so far I think but I have run out of other ideas.
Was reading an info article I received about "Reading Progress." I am copying the lead sentence from Monica Burn's June 21, 2021 article for you, but I really want to know if anyone is using this app. "Reading Progress is a new, free app built right into Microsoft Teams." It looks good to me on the surface for ALL teachers and is time efficient! Any thoughts?
If I remove someone from a channel on slack, will they be notified of who removed them, or only that they've been removed?
Anyone at slack willing to refer?
I wonder why D thinks that well being means scheduling a lot more zoom calls to tell us how much they care about well being but on ground everyone is still burnt out since we have such crazy targets. Thoughts ?
My team is trying to find a better way to track talent. We have an ATS we like for everything but tracking the talent pipeline. Anyone have good one off tools they use for talent pipeline tracking? Even better if it integrates with Microsoft Teams.
every time zoom asks me how was my meeting experience, I always have a desire to click bad. Not because of zoom, just because of the meeting itself
There’s a bird outside my window that sounds exactly like a Microsoft Teams Ping. I’m all for animals but this bird has got TO GO.
Anyone else having problems maintaining sanity while having their kids fighting with each other in the background of Zoom calls for work? 😑
My firm (over 1,000 lawyers) just put a firm-wide “we need to talk” zoom call on all associates’ calendars for later today. No one knows what it’s about or will give any info. Not going to be a productive day.

Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?
Where can I find great lesson plans free online?

I never thought I’d be posting something like this here, but here we are so I must be desperate. I feel more lonely in my relationship than I did before it. My SO is great, but whenever he goes out I feel so crushingly alone. Can’t tell whether it’s COVID or a serious issue.

Why do some people say that the senior level at big tech (e.g., L6 at AWS) correlates to senior manager level at big 4? I get it from a comp perspective since comp is just that much higher. But from a scope/skills perspective, I find it hard to believe that L6 is closer to SM than it is to SC. Asking cause I have a senior level offer in big tech. Amazon, AWS, Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft

What is the purpose of a flipped classroom? Some teachers are doing their lessons via video so the kids are prepped before class. Then, what do they do in class?
We had a lockdown drill, and the police came into each classroom. They told our students to fight back and to listen to the teacher’s instructions. I’m not a freakin’ ninja. I’m an English teacher. This is insane.
I want to work in a data analytics role but I'm worried that if I switch to another firm they'll just staff me on more IA projects, my background. Should I switch to industry first to get skilled?
