East and South Asians are very well represented in MBA programs, which this scholarship is targeted towards. They should have included SE Asians though.

Is there a social economic consideration or any other metric? We all know “minorities” from privileged backgrounds and “White / Asian” who struggled and obtained success despite hardships in their background. That’s what’s fundamentally wrong with race based diversity programs where race is the sole factor.

And if they have anything to say about it just fire back with “so you are disqualifying me because of the color of my skin?”

Please point this out to them 😢 and yeah why are we always left out!? Just bc we’re considered ‘model minority’ and we tend to have high credentials, but we’re not even a majority in anything!!

Sweet.. I’ll have to start claiming Pacific Islander again

It’s defined as Samoan islands or something now. I was only semi joking. Growing up I was told to select Pacific Islander by my parents. These days I hear we’re supposed to select Asian. Us Filipinos are kinda mutts anyway so probably why people are confused.

So I have to ask. There are a few jobs for creatives that are continuing to post (not automated posting, actual reposting by a hirer) for 6 months now. I know several extremely talented/nice/qualified people who have applied for the positions. What are they holding out for? Is this a diversity quest thing?

Hi all, I’m one of the two BIPOC at an ad agency and I’m one of the first WOC ever hired at the agency. We’ve recently started to have diversity and inclusion trainings, and some of those trainings have been emotionally draining for me. Wondering if somebody has ever been in a similar situation and how you’ve mentally prepared for it?

I haven’t heard from her since I gave her availability on Friday, should I reach out again to stay on her radar or give it some more time? Would normally reach out, but don’t want to be pushy in covid times..
