Does anyone have a diversity and inclusion committee at their agency? If so do you find it to be useful? What are things that you would change?

Not enough black people for these committees also.

I have also worked at a company where D&I efforts were more focused on inclusion for every demographic besides black people, (white women, LBGTQ, Veterans etc.)

I see your point. Essentially have a system in place that effectively allows movement and change to happen, not only just to sit and talk about D&I.

Ensure community out reach is where POC actually are instead of going to universities and recruiting only white people.

What will be especially challenging is making change for POC to be in positions of leadership.

We have one, and we address great topics and are represented in every allhands meeting, but typically when we do agency meetings (and like most D&I conferences or discussions or panels) only other D&I or POC folks show up...so driving change is difficult.

The only thing I’ve seen work is when there are POC in leadership positions who make a conscious effort to hire other POC. I work with a white guy that got me hired and he’s also responsible or probably 50%+ black people I’ve spoken to at the agency.

He gets it! I also do the best I can as well. This is the inky way change will happen.

So to your greater question, what would I change...nothing really. The conversations are great. You can only hope that people are not POC get it, understand, and participate in learning and helping.

Thank you for your input! I will keep your insight in mind.

Would you be okay being the first non-white hire at a small agency? Like they are making their first effort to bring diversity in (making it clear that you are not just a diversity hire), but you are going to be alone in a sea of white faces. I personally don’t know how to feel about it but I’d love to hear other opinions.

How does everyone handle PD about LGBTQ+ inclusion, terms, pronouns, language, etc.? We had a session last week and the presenter became political (digs against a certain party, specifically naming our governor) and stated factually incorrect information regarding transgender women in sports. I chose to bite my tongue for fear of being labeled a bigot, trans/homophobic, etc. What would you do?

Do NOT claim you are "colorblind" in the workplace. 1. DE&I knowledge is now a core leadership competency. Colorblind claims will earn you the reputation of being DEI-ignorant at best & racist at worst. 2. Colorblindness within the context of workplace diversity is an obvious lie. You do NOT want to be painted as an intellectually dishonest leader. 3. Colorblind claims signal that you lack the leadership skills & vocabulary to have key conversations. Ask questions here, in this safe space.

This question might anger some, but not meant to be provoking. Does anyone else feel that half the jobs in tech (scrum master, project manager, product manager, etc.) are more hindering than helpful? I feel like productivity would sky rocket if we didn’t have 10+ hours a week added of admin work/agile ceremonies/status meetings, and you just let developers and analysts do their job. Why are we spending hours learning how to estimate story points (for example) rather than improving production?
