Does anyone have recommendations on processes or sites that help with diversity recruiting? Our company is trying to try to break out of the homogenous bubble we live in, any tips appreciated!

AD1 - this is not to say the chosen candidate won’t have the skills. The point is, there is a shortage of diverse candidates applying to open jobs so many recruiters and hiring managers want to diversify the applicant pool. Don’t worry, based on your chosen emoji, I’m sure you’ll be fine.

Look into the Multicultural Advertising Intern Program (MAIP). You sponsor a summer intern, get access to diverse junior talent, be seen as an agency that supports D&I, etc

There needs to be an ongoing strategy and effort to reach out and connect with diverse groups, so that when you have openings you organically are receiving a diverse candidate pool. You can’t just hire 1-2 ppl and say box checked. Candidates want to see that you’re continuously making an effort to connect and engage not just one off appearances. Good luck!!

Saw this on LinkedIn this morning. I must admit at times I don’t get questioned by just men but women as well who don’t understand why I’m working tirelessly for equality. They either state it’s an uphill battle or “all in my head.” Has anyone been told that gender equality is a mirage? How did you handle the situation? No wrong answers!

I recently got married and started talking to my sister in law more often. She addresses me as “Bro” EVERY SINGLE TIME. She knows I identify as female. I absolutely hate because it’s a sign of deeply ingrained patriarchy and I also find it disrespectful. I never address anyone as bro, dude, man etc because I honestly find it very disrespectful. I would rather be addressed by my name. How can I handle this situation? We are still forming a reltnship & don’t want to hurt that process. I’m Indian.
