Definitely took the wrong job. I was offered a seriously competitive salary and great benefits to work at a well funded startup, which is great! Turns out the salary and benefits were meant as lowkey bribes to insure I worked at the company without actually doing any work. Every single suggestion I've made has been shut down and I've been ghosted for several meetings with the CEO. What should I do? Just leave?

It won't be the last time. This is cynical but if you can stay without compromising your morals I would. Hard to find an employer who actually cares about DEI who will pay what you're probably making now. Sorry you're stuck in this situation

You should do an unofficial coaching session with the CEO (whenever you stop getting ghosted). Asking open-ended questions to see where their thought process is. What does DEI mean to you? What aspects of DEI should be the company's focus in 2023? How can DEI help make the company more successful? I feel like if it's too hard for them to answer then start asking those tough questions. What's the point of a DEI Manager? Is DEI important to you personally? Is DEI ever brought up in Exec/Board meetings? Etc. If it's not important from the top down, then it's an issue.

Why do companies force us to work from office , when work can be done from anywhere. Some companies allow work from home but they need to work from their base location (Bangalore, Pune , Hyderabad) , do you also think there is some political pressure on corporates to ask their employees to stay in these cities so that locals can ask for whatever rent they want ?

I'm in desperate need of tips to get genuine buy in from our predominantly white, male senior leadership to create a more inclusive environment.
