Being recruited to a firm that has almost 0 diversity. How would you bring up the question diplomatically? I may be interested, but trying to get a feel for their culture and I obviously don’t fit the profiles I see on LinkedIn.

I would just ask them to tell me about the organization’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. I’d say it’s important to me, and I want to know the efforts they’re taking to ensure a more equitable workplace. You’ll hear pretty quickly whether they think it’s important and have any specific plans in place or not.

^^ all of this.

I think you know the answer to the question already. Think about what your daily lived experience in the company might be. If being the only in a homogeneous community gives you pause - listen to your instinct.

Don't be diplomatic about it. Ask your questions. If you feel their feelings need to be spared now then you already have the answer on how life will be behind those walls.

We are a same-sex couple pursuing surrogacy.

My spouse works for a Fortune 5 company. This company says it stands for equity and inclusion and it offers as an employee benefit coverage for fertility-related medical expenditures.

Specifically, this employer’s fertility benefits provide up to $25,000 for fertility expenditures to heterosexual couples, and $0 to same-sex couples.

How do we contest this inequitable employer policy?
