Yes it’s a win for diversity. But in the future we would love to see more women of color and black women especially.

This whole post and all the comments suck. Why aren’t we celebrating the fact that we are RECOGNIZING FIVE WOMEN? Why are we degrading them based on their weight? Their race? Why are we assuming anything about them at all? God you all suck. There doesn’t have to be one shade of everything winning every award. Let’s just celebrate women my god.

Wait, because they’re white women they’re automatically Karen’s? Yes it sucks that there’s not more ethnic diversity, but automatically classifying white women as “Karen’s” is 100% wrong. Judging people for the color of their skin is the most “Karen” thing you can do. Looking at you EY1 and C2.

Exactly. The funny part is they show their ignorance when they speak. Diversity is not just color. LGBTQ, Religion, Ethnicity, Veterans, Disabled, Gender....they aren’t tied to a race. You can be white and diverse.

For the ignorant folks... You do know you can be white and diverse, right? LGBTQ, Religion, Ethnicity, Veterans, Disabled....they aren’t tied to a race. The talk of inclusive diversity must have left mistaken that we already achieved the basic gender diversity, but the female gender continues to be under-represented and under paid in all professional aspects on the global stage.

But diversity is a good thing because it exposes us to new experiences and perspectives on the world — wouldn’t you get those from the types of people D10 mentioned? I’m not seeing the problem with their point as long as the actual goal is diversity. Not sure I even agree with your point about visibility. Some of those traits can be easily identifiable as an ethnicity, writing them off as dealing with less bias is irrational and not empathetic

Wow let’s hate on women in power. Always nice to tear down powerful women because they’re succeeding.

like

To be honest people are reacting this way because of the assumption that white people are succeeding not necessarily because they deserve it, but because of their privilege. It’s sad but that’s how people see these things. Unfortunately it’s partly true. This does not mean there are those who don’t deserve the recognition. On the other hand If it were women of other races, people will assume they must have passed through a lot to get there and so they truly deserve it. And again that’s partly true.

So I typically don’t answer the EEO questions at the end of applications that ask for race and gender. Lately I’ve noticed companies following up via email for this information after I submit the application. Am I the only one who does this? Does it even matter? Any thoughts on the follow up emails asking for the information after the application has already been submitted?
