Colorblindness comes off as a way to deny that racism is an issue and to place yourself “above it all.” If you are a leader, and you announce this to your team, trouble will almost certainly follow. Take the time to educate yourself on this topic, develop a strong DE&I vocabulary, and take your leadership skills to the next level.

Based on your experiences, what are 1 or 2 traits that a company/ leadership has that allows diversity to be celebrated & encouraged. How does this affect employees (Black/non-Black) in & out of work?

It's really pathetic to see guys getting desperate on this bowl and due to such guys all of us get labelled creeps. I can understand you guys are not getting any due to the skewed gender ratio but please maintain some dignity. I am sure if the gender ratio was skewed in reverse then women won't be behaving in such a desperate manner and would rather stay single. My request to all guys is please have some self respect because this desperation won't lead you anywhere

Hello everyone, Please be patient with me as this is my first post and it might be long. Apologies in advance. Ok. I currently work for a company where I feel as if I am there to help them meet "diversity" numbers. I am wanting to side step into UX design, however, my company doesn't offer any UX positions and now I am looking elsewhere. I went through a boot camp during quarantine and have been trying to build more of my skills in my off time in my current job. I am curious to know, for whoever

Apparently studies show that having a sense of autonomy at work is the most important factor to a lawyer's level of happiness. I'm currently working hard at a boutique and while they pay me enough, I could make much more in biglaw. But I know I wouldn't have the autonomy I have now. I get a say in what cases I work on and who I work with. I get to work for the best clients, etc. So I'm curious what dollar value would you assign to autonomy? Would you give up autonomy for a $50k bump? $75k?
