I think the DEI department is making a difference, but I think it's not enough to offset the company culture. At the company I consult for they're still stuck in the "good ole days" and it's a pain in the ass.

Nope! I spend most of my time arguing with the people that hired me because I'm actively doing what they hired me to do instead of sitting back and doing paperwork like they hoped I would. I was a hire for show.

Any thoughts on salary I should be asking? I'd have to get $220k minimum to make it worth my while to jump, but skeptical they'll be able to offer that.

In honor of National Voter Registration Day, The New Yorker released the transcript of a previously unpublished interview with James Baldwin, who gave a first-hand account of "Freedom Day 1963," a Black voter-registration drive in Selma, Alabama. Baldwin's descriptions from that day are so vivid and detailed that you can feel the fear and anger of the event. If you have a couple of minutes, I highly recommend you read it.

General question: Is there any room in corporate America for real, actionable DE&I discussions and initiatives? I've observed so many corporate versions become an advertising strategy (SM posts, diversity reports) without doing the actual work (increasing representation in senior leadership, salary analyses, having an effective reporting system for bias). Is this just how it is?

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. As is often the case, middle management and below is very diverse and then at Director+ it gets much more homogeneous. So far any real initiatives get shot down in favor of performative actions to post on SM. Is this just how it is, or can we try something different?
