Hi Fish! Does anyone have useful articles to share with a DEI council (not an ERG) to help inform and clarify their mission/focus as they launch?

I found this one to be really useful: https://inclusiveeconomy.us/toolkit/dos-and-donts-of-diving-into-dei/ I've read it several times now.


Oooooh thank you for sharing this!

I also came across a useful (but comprehensive) report from UMass that you all might find of interest: umass.edu/employmentequity/sites/default/files/What_Works.pdf


Thank you for sharing this!

Would also love to see resources on this topic!

My GF and I are dating for 2.5 yrs , She met an office colleague (he has a GF) recently who she initiated a friendship with.

When I expressed how I felt she keeps saying there's nothing going on. I feel that when start to get emotionally close to some other guy than SO then it's not a good sign in relationship. Am I overthinking? contd.

My onboarding was on 10th October. I was not having the relieving letter from my last company therefore the OM deferred my onboarding to 17th on my request. However, the same is not reflecting on my ibegin portal. She kept all other documents with herself (joining kit, Adhaar copy etc.). I was trying to go to my joining location to submit the relieving letter but the HR told me to wait for the onboarding email for 17th. Has anyone experienced this before? On my iBegin portal, joining date is 10

Interview went well, Total 7 ppl interviewed me. I accepted offer verbally. Then I got promoted and I shared that to recruiter and my current compensation and offer are same. I shared my difficulty to recruiter as it will be a lateral move. He said he will get back to me in 1 day. Its been a week I haven't heard back.
What should I do. (I am excited for this new role also extremely happy with my current employer)
Is it normal for recruiter to not keep their words about communication?


Additional Posts in Diversity & Inclusion

Does anyone have experience with starting a Business/Employee Resource Group? I would really like to start one for Middle Eastern and North Africans as my company does not have one. There are many discussions that could benefit others and opportunities for intersectionality here. TIA!


“I must honestly confess that I go through moments of disappointment when I have to recognize that there aren’t enough white persons in our country who are willing to cherish democratic principles over privilege. But I am grateful to God that some are left.” This quote is from MLK in 1968 about how he sensed the movement was losing the battle for the soul of the nation.


Do you feel like your work is making a difference at your current company? Why or why not?


Definitely took the wrong job. I was offered a seriously competitive salary and great benefits to work at a well funded startup, which is great! Turns out the salary and benefits were meant as lowkey bribes to insure I worked at the company without actually doing any work. Every single suggestion I've made has been shut down and I've been ghosted for several meetings with the CEO. What should I do? Just leave?


For those of you who are federal contractors, what’s your approach to DEI trainings under the new Executive Order 13950?

I find myself in workshops and meetings, groups of 15-20 people, and I’m always the only woman. In my entire department, there are no other women. I’m getting to the point where I’m feeling defeated and burnt out. I’ve been working in male-dominated environments my entire career (over 10 years) and I’m losing motivation. Any tips or words of advice to get out of my mental rut?


Just received demographic results from a diversity survey. 75% response rate. Not sure if diversity percentage should use the total headcount or total number of people who responded to the survey. I'm looking for guidance. Thanks!


Juneteenth is just around the corner. This is the first year I get the day off as a company holiday -- not sure if my company is having any programs or events. How about yours? And if not, are you doing anything on your own to recognize/celebrate this day?


Hi - I am a career pivot from higher education into tech and have final round interviews for a DEI Coordinator role (which I'm super excited for). I am meeting with three people that I would be partnering with for the job and it was shared with me that these interviews will mainly be behavioral as well as questions on my technical skills. Does anyone have any resources to help me prepare for this? Anything is greatly appreciated!


Working at a company and they can’t seem to hold on to their female, black and people of color employees. I blinked and 3 of the people who were in my onboarding class were either fired or they left. For context I’ve been in company less than a year and there are people who have been in the company 25yrs. I’m thinking of cutting loose before it gets to my turn.


Do you think diversity training actually works? I can't tell if it's just a way to tick a liability box or if it's actually effective.


I recently moved to Toronto from New Jersey. I’ve been applying with little success. I have a background in healthcare, non-profit, and public health. Any advice on what company I should apply to?


I'm in desperate need of tips to get genuine buy in from our predominantly white, male senior leadership to create a more inclusive environment. As is often the case, middle management and below is very diverse and then at Director+ it gets much more homogeneous. So far any real initiatives get shot down in favor of performative actions to post on SM. Is this just how it is, or can we try something different?


Hi everyone! I’m pivoting from working in politics in search of a role in DEI. I have 1.5 YOE managing multiple campaigns and a BA in Global Studies & MA in Ethnology. I have experience working in and with non-profits and a passion for people and culture. I’d love to connect to hear about your journeys & advice for an early career transition!


Question for everyone; what are some of the better job boards for underrepresented groups in tech? Non-traditional job boards that promote inclusivity and diversity hiring?


How do I transition from a Senior Executive Assistant role to Project Management? Ideally I would like to work in tech. How should I go about this? I currently work in the Real estate industry so it would be a totally new career path. The reason I want to move into tech is I feel like many of the companies I see have the same values as me (diversity & inclusion) and a good culture is so important to me.
