And even though I am a black man, I still have some privilege in this patriarchal society. But every article I see about diversity and inclusion has a white woman plastered on it...

Yes. My former roommate posted a photo about how “diverse” her team was. The most “diverse” women in that photo were a white woman with red hair and a white Latina with blonde hair. Tragic.

It’s disappointing. Diversity is mostly about WW. I’ve checked out of a lot of the diversity discussion. I honestly don’t think the leadership truly cares about PoC

Big Facts! I was a part of a D&I initiative at my firm and WW are who's primarily influencing it. I'm all for women's rights and them getting their fair share...but yea let's call it what it is.

Yes. Very much so. The Executive Leadership Council posted a statement on this not too long ago. I’m not sure if it will change anything but glad to be acknowledged

Not referring to our firm’s executive leadership. Referring to the non-profit Executive Leadership Council (ELC). It’s the premier org for the development of black executives. If you’re familiar with MLT, think of that but for more senior (Director level and up) black executives.
