Always been with II-ranked teams and twice voted rising star. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

Us white people need to put ourselves in colored people’s shoes. How would we feel working in a predominantly “colored” work environment where everyone wants us to act “colored” (whether Black, Asian, Latinx)? How comfortable are we going to be day by day when being yourselves mean no promotion and could get us fired? When our fate depends on another race who gives favoritism to their own race? Colored people are the most resilient people in corporate America. The true backbone of our success

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
