Manager has bias?? Different standards held by manager

A girl in our team traveled 5 times this year(business travel) one travel is for a god damn ‘see inside yourself’ training. All company expense. But I need to go to a required training manager talks about budget and asks me to choose one nearby main campus(which is nothing in the following 6 months)

Isn’t this funny? What will you do if your manager like this?

    Are you a member of the majority gender in tech? Can you self identify as female and try it again?

    I am sure Google values diversity and supports females of all kinds.

      Have a crucial conversation with you manager and hold her/him accountable with facts to back it up and tell them you are not being treated fairly in this case.

      They might tell you that “don’t look at what others can do”, you just tell them on the spot that you are leaving for Facebook.

      LoL

      Stop being so fucking entitled. You work at Google. Buy your own plane tickets if you really want to travel.

      Business travel isn't even that great. Get over yourself.

    Reading all these entitled post by fellow Googlers, I feel every one should be made to work for Amazon for 2 years after they graduate.

      You'll be thankful that you get a free banana everyday, let alone complain about other perks not being up to the mark etc.

      Working in Amazon is not so much different than taking part in the Hunger games. You are given nothing and everyone is trying to kill you while you just want to survive...

      Joking of course, working in Amazon is a truly unique experience and we are a league of our own above all mortals. Your resume will be littered with gold dusts and you can be even more entitled than you ever dreamed.

    Is the other woman in a different situation than you are? New to company, higher level, better performer, different role requirements, etc? Is there a different characteristic about her that makes you feel she would get it out of bias? Younger, better looking, more flirtatious, specific ethnicity, etc?

    Perhaps budget was there when she was signing up and now it’s gone. That just means the manager is bad at managing budget. If she gets to go on another trip after you’ve been denied, then you know for sure.

      Yes, there are so many dimensions, which makes it easy for managers to play the petty favoritism game.

      Maybe there is a case if her manager is male?

      But then he will point to the other gal saying that he is not a sexist. So the gender bias theory has shaky grounds.

      Biased against one female direct report and not the other?

      OP didnt claim sexist bias, she just said bias. Blind, predictably, went into a MRA rage

    Why dont you bring this up to your manager? The likelihood of the reason being some nefarious plot is pretty low. More likely its there have been so many trips so budget is scarce. Maybe the "girl" was just aggressive about wanting to go to trainings, some people are like that. You people need to grow up, damn.

    You call this biased? Then you don’t know what is a biased manager! They pick on you for everything. They push you and belittle you. Nothing you do is right. But if other people do the same thing, they say it’s good.
