Do you ask startups about their diversity efforts?

I usually do when the company is larger than 70ish people or older than a few years, but when it’s tiny like a seed startup, I know diversity can be a lower priority and there usually isn’t a recruiter/peoples/hr person in place yet. Thoughts?

If it’s a priority to you, absolutely!

Maybe ask about what initiatives they have in terms of DEI or ways that they give back to the community? There are many aspects of diversity that all businesses, big or small, should be able to demonstrate. It’s not only a Recruiter/HR responsibility. (Oftentimes, HR will do the exact opposite 🙃, but that’s the answer to a different question..)

Great mindset! 👏
Effort is all you can really ask for.

Been for a company for over 2years. The executive team is very much a boy's club. There are a few women in management roles but zero ethnicity diversity there. I raised my concern to HR in feb. And they are just now deciding to do something about it. They want me (white female) to put together a diversity committee. Any suggestions on how to go about it? How to attract volunteers to the committee? I want to make sure I get the right people involved in this, to push for changes.

I have been reflecting a lot about diversity recruitment pipelines and I feel like sometimes these are still not very diverse. Let’s remember that it’s not just about race and ethnicity, it’s also about background and socio-economic status. We need to uplift communities of color in which the majority of individuals identify as low-income. There is always a bigger picture that I just don’t think companies always consider.

I’m a SPED Resource/Inclusion Teacher which I really love. I really like working with the Gen Ed teachers maybe because my background is Gen Ed.

What happened to SPED working with Gen Ed? Maybe I’m old school, but this seems so wrong to me. Thoughts?

For example, gay sex and marriage are illegal in Pakistan, but even they recognize Hijra as being an official third gender with civil rights protections. Thoughts?
