Did not make Google hiring committee due to 2 borderline interviews. Phone interviewer (American guy) gave me a strong feedback, 5 on site interviewers, 2 Desi guys gave me borderline feedback, remaining 3 American guys gave me strong feedback. Google requested a follow-up interview and the additional interviewer provided good feedback as well. I am not sure what's wrong with me, every time I interview with desi interviewer, I tend to screw things up.

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?

I teach job skills, and we basically act as volunteers in the building by completing various jobs like delivering mail and working in the cafeteria.

Most of my students have limited expressive language so I’m hoping to give them options and let them vote.
