Has anyone bought/ done the HRCI Certificate in Diversity and Inclusion in HR Management? I already have my PHR, but I’m looking to gain more knowledge/skills and beef up my resume. Is it worth doing? The course is $239 and you get 12 Recert credits with it.
Help! I’m hiring, and it’s down to 2 candidates. One is not as qualified, would require a lot of training, a great fit culturally and brings diversity to the agency. The other is more qualified, still a great fit culturally and wouldn’t require as much training, they were more prepared and I could put them in front of the client tomorrow, but they are non-BIPOC. Both are in the same range salary wise, and my team is SUPER small. Both are great fits, and I am torn. Advice? Please?
*Sensitive topic* Stimulants and “sexual release/masturbation”! Those using stimulants, what has your experience of “release” been on *work performance*. Are you able to focus more? Or less because it takes from your energy? Serious answers only please. If you’re comfortable sharing gender please do in case there may differences in experiences.

McKinsey & Company As a leader in cyber, one of my aspirations is to increase the diversity of any organization that I am a part of.

i recently accepted a job at an agency that is very white. prior to 2020, in typical industry fashion, they were talking the diversity talk, had DEI committees, etc, but all white leadership and a huge turnover of POC talent.
2020–>now, it seems like they’re ready to walk the walk. they publicly published their numbers, are actively recruiting POCs, etc. but leadership is still white, as is the majority of the agency. sure, change doesn’t happen overnight... but should i stick it out or run?
Anyone here ever witness someone make a full career transition into being a DEI consultant, strategist, Manager or Chief Diversity Officer? If not witnessed anyone, maybe done it yourself? I want to fully transition into the DEI space but don’t know where to start… any advice on certificates or career pathways would help!
