Hey recruiters 👋🏾 wondering if you think there’s value in adding one’s Employee Resource Group (ERG) involvement at a company on one’s resume. Non-recruiters, do y’all add info like that to your resume?

Sure! Love to see people who are active participants in making their workplace great.

My rule of thumb is always “it depends”, and then folks ask, “on what?”, to which I explain, “the only way a resume is ‘good’ is if it’s relevant to the person reading it.” Literally no one else can advise you accurately unless they can speak on behalf of the potential reviewer. What you may think is amazing, may very well be amazing. Heck the whole city could agree with you... but if it’s a data point that is completely unrelated to the vacant opportunity advertised, the company that is hiring, or the person reviewing your document, it has no business taking up space on your precious paper. This time.

If an agency viewed my involvement in ENGs and the fact that an inclusive work environment is important to me as “taking up space” on my resume, that’s not an agency I want to work for.

Found out this week an old friend is now having a kid. This person is a good human but for a variety of reasons, they aren’t so great when it comes to anything romantic with the opposite sex (myself, mutual friends, etc). They managed to get pregnant with someone lives across the country from their old neighborhood. Instead of being happy for them, I hate that the only thing I can think is this will always come to mind taking safe sex precautions knowing that it was definitely unplanned.
