Does anyone have a way to help me learn and better understand gender issues? ( a good youtube video to watch- a PD link, anything. ).

Some of the comments are concerning. As a 5th grade teacher, I've had transgender, gay, non binary, and fluidity students. I didn't know what non binary was 7 years ago. I learned through 2 of my students and reaching out to our local LGBTQ Center. It was an eye opener for me.

I shared on the other post but I was reminded today that it’s not just trans or non-binary where it becomes an issue. My daughter identifies as a girl But she prefers boy clothing and has a short haircut. Today she had a substitute that kept calling her sir. She was kind of upset but she also knows it was an innocent mistake. But that teacher could have avoided the whole thing

The book “beyond the gender binary” is a must read. It can be found on Amazon for about $8. What is your primary concern?

If you'd enjoy a philosophical (and sometimes NSFW) take on the topic, you might check out Natalie Wynn (Contrapoints) on youtube. She's a trans woman who doesn't adhere to any particular dogmas and is really incisive about breaking down various topics related to gender and society's reaction to those who don't fit a particular mold. Also I find her really funny, although some of the jokes are Gen Z enough to go over my head.

Hello! Does anyone know of any openings for diversity and inclusion drivers/promoters in India? I joined as an HR analyst at Accenture as a fresh graduate 3 months ago but this is not really the role I was looking for. I have quite a lot of experience in diversity and inclusion related themes. Any leads/suggestions/advice would be appreciated!

Fam— would anyone be interested in a Glassdoor for black people? i.e anonymized reviews of companies from POCs. I think it would be massively helpful in gauging the diversity and inclusivity of a company outside polished recruitment processes and would publicly hold companies accountable. Thoughts?

Looks like the firm “supporters” are inaccurately “reporting” posts that demonstrate a diversity of thought (i.e., share any perspective that is negative from theirs). Shame on you for doing that and stopping staff from sharing their perspectives in 3rd party open forum that is not officially affiliated with CV in any way. This bowl isn’t meant to be a place to toot your own horn, CV. It appears to give a voice to staff in a safe place. See posts for a few that have been recently reported.

I had an interview and the recruiter (White F) could not stop talking about DEI and POC % hires. It’s great yes but I didn’t even mention or ask about it yet. Barely had time to talk about myself. I was slightly uncomfortable. She made me feel like a diversity hire.

Hello! It seems this bowl is not very active but I'd like it to be. So here's my story: Born & raised in PR, moved to CA for undergrad & have been here since then. I graduated from law school in 2019, followed by a 2 yr bk clerkship. I did the evening program. I really enjoyed law school, in spite of the microaggressions, the late nights, & crazy competition. Love all things diversity in the law. Anyway, currently looking for a position in NYC/DC area. 🤗

What do you all think about Axe Black body spray on guys? M/F, state your gender.

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.
