A few male non-POC that I work with have mentioned that diversity programs make them feel left out of opportunities.
Does your consulting firm invite non consulting staff (support / non client facing staff ) to internal diversity meetings? For example an internal annual women’s conference / networking event? Or ...
Help! I'm a Sped teacher (ELA inclusion) that comes home to a High Functioning Autistic 9 yr old with ADHD and a slew of sensory issues that has sworn off soap 🤢. I've made visual check list for bathroom processes, bought timers, tried different bars and body washeds with net sponges, towels and even invested in a pricey showerhead with multiple settings. His set of needs are out of my wheel house. I need suggestions before I just pack up and move out *sarcasm but at the end of my rope*.
The ad industry is legendarily homogenous. Won’t unionizing simply close ranks & protect existing white professionals, who then protect other professionals just like them, resulting in LESS diversity?

I had an interview and the recruiter (White F) could not stop talking about DEI and POC % hires. It’s great yes but I didn’t even mention or ask about it yet. Barely had time to talk about myself. I was slightly uncomfortable. She made me feel like a diversity hire.

Getting pulled into meetings on different projects as functional lead or backup to functional lead. What is the best way to organize, to keep meeting notes, key tidbits, track of latest updates and status? One note or something else? Also, any tips or books to read to help manage such a pace and diversity of projects. Not looking to be a PM. Role is more around managing FTE and contractors across different groups without actually having them reporting to you. TIA

Hey all. I just got hired as a Sales manager in a remote setting. As soon as I was done with training, the leadership team cut the entire BD side. They offered me 2 weeks of severance or an individual contributor role. Curious to know if anyone has connections to an open management/enablement role? I've built sales teams from scratch, 10 years of sales exp, and familiar with a lot of tech. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Is it normal to be threatened to be fired after making mistakes that you had no idea were mistakes in the first place?
I’m a junior litigation associate at a small firm, and the managing partner says things like “you aren’t providing value to the firm” or “you’re being paid to avoid mistakes like these” when I make mistakes due to, what I believe, to be a lack of guidance and instruction. As in, they could be easily avoided with a “please keep in mind X” or something like that. Thoughts?

Whenever I got promoted to digital ACD a few years ago, I noticed my pay was much lower than I expected for the market I’m in, hard to find skillsets, performance, and visibility I’ve brought to the agency. I’ve brought this up a few times and was told HR would do research into salary equity, but the convo always fades. I put my foot down with my GCD, and she supports me, but I would like to come to the table with my own research. Where should I be looking for accuracy?

True or False?
Been feeling pushed out as a new (read white) person has taken lead of my accounts. The entire team is shifting but I seem to have been targeted specifically as all of my responsibilities have been taken from me and unevenly spread out to other people, in a haphazard way. It's probably time to go isn't it?

They don’t deserve the mental and emotional labor or energy output of a response.
FWIW, I've take both approaches. If i have the energy to, i try to give that feeling some context... that they way they are feeling is subjective, and that any time things become more equal the people who have been on the positive side will feel like they are losing something... and they are, but it's not something they earned or were entitled to.
I will say tha I am more likely to engage when start to hear people say that it's about punishing white people, or getting back at people. That narrative is what allows them to comfortably dismiss this issue, and that's way worse than just whining about it.
I generally agree. That said, I have a good relationship with my boss, as well as with our c-suite and I have had those conversations with them. Totally situational and always risky, but if you can make it work, it can be productive.
I tend to engage. Because I like to get context on their feelings and give context on why these initiatives are necessary. While privilege is assigned to groups, people’s feelings are personal... And as CT1 said, it’s natural to feel like you are losing something when you are in the group (due not to your own personal actions) that benefits most.
Ah, the unconscious entitlement. Well, non diversity programs have purposely left us out. So....this is called equity.
And further more, the world looks more like us so perhaps the corporate world should too...
(I wouldn’t say the last part tho but it’s what I would be thinking)
@huge Totally agree. I've been trying to coach some of the younger folk to speak up, but they are so reluctant.
