Do foreigners have to work extra hard in order to gain the same achievement in America? Or the government usually favors foreigners for diversity purposes?
Hi, looking to add diversity to my post house and production companies, including content creators. Anyone have any great partners that are BIPOC, women owned, LGBTQ, everyone!Thank you!
I wanted to share this image. There were people on this bowl getting mad about diversity and inclusion at firms. This guy succeeded, but how many black folks did such policies disadvantage? How many black people got discouraged from even going to the library. Giving black people preference now is just common sense. You can't have equal merit when you have disadvantaged a group of people for many many years.
Another win for diversity!
Height, weight and gender?
I miss NYC dearly. That’s it! There is no other US city that offers the safety, inclusion & community to a POC like NYC.
We are starting to really address diversify and inclusion and build partnerships with community resources. What do you feel is important in building out DEI program?
So how many more press releases of white women in leadership roles bragging about diversity will we admit they have taken over the conversation about diversity and are the only benefiting from it?

Help! I'm a Sped teacher (ELA inclusion) that comes home to a High Functioning Autistic 9 yr old with ADHD and a slew of sensory issues that has sworn off soap 🤢. I've made visual check list for bathroom processes, bought timers, tried different bars and body washeds with net sponges, towels and even invested in a pricey showerhead with multiple settings. His set of needs are out of my wheel house. I need suggestions before I just pack up and move out *sarcasm but at the end of my rope*.
I was introduced at my former agency as the "female" creative director, and everyone who worked for me thought I was a diversity hire. On top of that, I was told in multiple meetings that the only reason I was invited was because I was "young", which did I mention I'm not. Is any of this type of treatment politically correct?
Just graduated from portfolio school, and was wondering how the creative world is looking in terms of gender representation. Are there a lot of male/female teams or is it mainly male dominated?
🔔 Diversity training can make you more biased and evoke a backlash depending on how it's delivered / presented. Been trying to explain that to folks forever! Quick and clear read on why inside!📰
Parents are deciding between moving to WVirginia vs Virginia at retirement to be closer to us based in fairfax (ideally be at 1 hour driving distance). They currently in the mid west but WVirginia appeals to them because of low taxes, low cost of living. We are also poc so appreciate some diversity. What are some areas you would recommend both in Va and WV? What else should they consider prior to house hunting? Dad likes to garden/farm as well so looking for homes with large backyards. Tia!
"Ah, a question about gender equality. I'll refer that to the only woman at this table, an aggressively smiley thin blond white lady of no discernable age, to tell you how great we're doing"
How do we feel about listening ethnicity in casting specs? Our clients say it’s important to ensure diversity, but is it counterproductive?
Just got a new job and feeling like the “diversity hire.” Everyone else is white or Indian and in the town halls they keep talking about upping Diversity and Inclusion targets to include more Female and Black/Latino individuals.
Today: I point out that the “diversity” team is 3 white women + the ONLY black woman working here. They say, “oh but they’re lesbians!” Every white lady in Portland is a witchy lesbian, what’s new?

Im in the final round of interviews at VMware and news came on Monday that they are being acquired by Broadcom. Is this something that I should be concerned about? I know layoffs can happen after a merger/acquisition but there’s not much overlap between the two companies (chipmaker vs cloud infrastructure). My job will be a Sr Business Analyst role in internal strategy/improvement Any advice from folks experienced in M&A?
So I’m currently in an industry job and have a new consulting gig lined up to start mid-March. I just received my bonus letter which will be paid out in full at the end of February. I know the general rule is “wait until the $ hits your account to give notice,” but if I do, I won’t be able to give a full two weeks before I have to leave. Is there really a risk in giving notice to my current company before the bonus money is officially in my account?
Are 6 eggs (4 white, 2 whole) too much to eat for breakfast daily? Sometimes just over easy, sometimes as breakfast tacos with corn street taco shells and turkey bacon, sometimes as an omelet with turkey bacon crumbles/mozzarella Is it sustainable to lose weight/build muscle?
Why is feeling underpaid such a theme? How are people acting on that info? Presumably some are leaving for more money...I recently got a bigger offer, but want to make sure I'm considering more than $

Quick poll: how many shaves does you shaving blade (like a Mach 3) last you? When I used to travel to a client site earlier, I used to shave every weekday and it would last me 2 weeks. Now, at home, I shave every 2-3 days and it seems to go on for 3-4 months. I know it sounds gross and possibly cheap but I don’t seem to see any real difference in the quality of shave. Curious what the others are averaging
