Holy crap, is it common in professional services to openly refer to people as "diversity hires"? I mean I went to the same top 20 b school, paid the same $120k, got the same 650+ gmat.
How does everyone feel about declining to self-identify vs Identifying (race/gender/military status). Better for you or worse? Looking to you HR managers, gatekeepers to our employment opportunities
Hi folks, question on DEI Context: my company at the csuite level is full of white men (and 1 female as CHRO). I am in the DEI group that was formed to give more guidance to leadership. They are open but struggle to justify DEI (because all white, how can they know!) How do I get them to understand that 1) representation is important, 2) white men from varying white dominant country =\= diverse, 3) their white struggle easy vs. minority , 4) diversity hiring will not make talent pool worse?
Celebrating diversity by listing success stories doesn’t seem diverse when your examples read: WHITE WOMAN WHITE WOMAN WHITE WOMAN WHITE WOMAN 2 WHITE WOMEN WHITE WOMAN WHITE WOMAN WHITE WOMAN
How do people find out if there is a gender pay gap at their agency? Is HR required to share this info if asked?
After Googles report on the gender pay gap do you think Ad agencies should do their own to see what discrepancies there are? https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nytimes.com/2019/03/04/technology/google-gender-pay-gap.amp.html
Parents are deciding between moving to WVirginia vs Virginia for retirement to be closer to us based in fairfax, va(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!

Do other firms have an Asian Diversity or affinity group? If so, what are some of the things the networks have done which have been helpful?
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?
Last year, My girlfriend was making 80k while I was making 200k so I took her out to dinners and took care of the groceries etc. Basically made sure it’s an equitable relationship. She got a new job this year and is now making 210k (more than me) but still expects me to pay for all the dinners and groceries. I’ve already talked to her about this but just resulted in argument. Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?
A WM was just named DEI lead for our department. He keeps talking and writing messages in ways which prioritize the aggressor’s feelings, the aggressor’s safety, and “positive intent.” He also talks and writes about “How to not jump from kindergarten to college in one conversation when it involves DEI.” He never talks or writes about inclusion or making things safe for BIPOC. I just needed to type this . Thank you for reading.
I’m a SPED Resource/Inclusion Teacher which I really love. I really like working with the Gen Ed teachers maybe because my background is Gen Ed. I’m noticing many SPED team members go straight to the principal if they have an issue with a Gen Ed teacher instead of going to the teacher directly. Is this the norm now? What happened to SPED working with Gen Ed? Maybe I’m old school, but this seems so wrong to me. Thoughts?

Do you show your human side at work? Also share your gender if you’re comfortable. I’m F and I generally do, but wondering if this is not perceived well. For example, sometimes I talk to my peers about my weekend plans, sometimes about how tired I am because of work, I recently had surgery and shared with them details about it.
NYTimes headline this morning: “Firm Behind ‘Fearless Girl’ Statue Underpaid Women, U.S. Says.” Settling out $5mil in a gender/race discrimination lawsuit.
Kind of a quick rant. I did a quick search through some firms websites because I am thinking of switching jobs. It is definitely clear most firms still do not embrace diversity. I know diverse applicants must be just as qualified! So what is keeping attorneys of color out?? It’s so discouraging.
San Francisco 🐠 what are the chances of running into people you know when you go out in the city?
Thoughts on Deloitte getting rid of diversity groups...it seems unnecessary to me. IMO Including white males in the discussion can be accomplished without disbanding groups.

The owners of our company like to do a holiday handout at Thanksgiving each year. They used to do a whole Thanksgiving meal (turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, pie). Last year there was a lack of available turkeys in the quantity we needed, so we switched it up and did a bottle of sparkling cider with a $25 gift card. This year the owners want to do something different but they are not sure what. Does anyone have any suggestions? We have about 300 employees in one location. Thanks!!
