Hello fishes, I’m getting a chance to be a DEI program manager. Can I get an opinion if this is a good career to build on? What’s the scope, future prospects etc.

I think it’s a super cool career to build on as we have more and more focus in the area.

With that said, depending on where the organization journey is at, you could be working at very very foundational work ( ie why is hiring 50/50 gender important ) vs quite mature business looking at all scopes of DEI (ie accessibility, First Nations, poc)

IMO - Receipe for success for the role is to engage the right leaders in business to get their level of partnerships

The thing is, it’s a role based in India where in general DEI focus is just on female diversity. So I’m not sure if this is the right career move if all I’ll get to do is focus on one aspect. I’m just 2 years into my careers after post graduation.

Is this role with your current company or external? If external, the most important thing to understand is how much the organization TRULY values DE&I. There are a look of companies trying to focus on DE&I given social pressure that are not truly invested in DE&I and are simply investing in it for external perception. If you find that they are truly invested in the program as a business and it aligns with their culture, than I think it can be an excellent career move.

It is an external role, not in my current company but the culture is said to be really good and I’m trying to draw conclusions that maybe they would take the next step and focus on DEI as well.

Potentially, if the company isn't in it just for show. I think if you're serious about it, you could build great relationships and do some serious networking as well as actually building a career in the field. Just depends on if the company has this position to actually address issues or to put a bandaid on them. I would be especially careful if you're a person of color.

That’s actually a valid point. I’ll definitely consider this.

I think it can be cool IF there is stakeholder buy in. Sometimes it feels like these roles play lip service to DEI without actually bringing anything in. I think it's a role that's definitely going to grow though

I get your point. Thank you so much!

What are your longterm career goals?

I’m working as a PMO in HR since two years. My goal is to be in project management and go further into strategy but I do have an inclination towards DEI.

My company went toxic in the last couple months. Chose me and started interviewing.

I work at a Manufacturing company. We currently have our hourly team members clock in and out at a physical clocking machine.

I’d like to be prepared for the initial phone screen convo, which will only last 20-30 minutes. The JD shows the salary range as 110-130(USD) commensurate with experience, but I’m happy to land anywhere in that range—yet I don’t think it’s good to disclose that. How can I tactfully still talk to the recruiter about landing closer to 130? Not trying to be greedy, but certainly aiming high!
