I avoid. There’s no option for asshole

Definitely legal. It’s a “voluntary self-identify” question on every application these days.

It doesn’t matter whether you fill it. They’ll interview you in person and see what you are!

I’m not even sure it’s legal to ask this question on a job application...

I do. Not sure what the big secret is.

It’s required to ask as optional since 2010, then EEO-1 reports are run for who was hired and reported back to EEO govt reports on monthly basis by Usa employers. You can skip it if you prefer

So I recently started a position with Fox. When it was presented to me in interview, I was told I would be working aligned with Fox Sports & Entertainment, not so much News. Now that I’m here, I’m seeing everything I’ll be doing is with the News team & makes me uncomfortable. No diversity, outdated software & process.
Financially, it’s the best position I been in. But mentally in this environment, it’s depressing & slow. Nothing innovative or engaging. What would you do?

(Former consultant) Hi Ladies - I know we talk a lot about a glass ceiling re: our gender and related perceptions, but has anyone thought that being attractive, smart and social has held them back? Sometimes it feels like I have to work harder to prove I’m articulate and produce great work for new teammates to come around. I sometimes feel like I can’t show up as my full self bc I don’t want others around me to feel intimidated (I realize this may seem like a shallow post). Advice?

Something I’m struggling with as it relates to the rise of the “Karens”. I get it, Karens suck and are very real but why is it that women always have to deal with this kind of stereotype? Men, especially Trumpian white men, are just as bad about their own privilege. Maybe they handle it differently or maybe people are less inclined to record them? I don’t know. But somehow it feels like yet another divide between women. Just wish we could make it less about gender and more about privilege.
