They just needed ppl to fire in honesty. It was most likely a condition to get the $750M they raised.

They didn’t fire the DEI team. Better supposedly slowed down hiring and as a result, fired the DEI recruiting team and other recruiters

Yuhp. They’re leaning up to maximize the IPO. But they handled it terribly and I think their CEO should be removed. Awful leadership and exactly what shareholders don’t want as the face of a company.

Do consulting firms promise increased revenue from DEI? I thought it was just a way for companies to avoid discrimination lawsuits
