I am currently in IT consulting and my company is huge on I,D&E initiatives. I have been heavily involved with ERGs (started 2 from scratch in my market) and also currently serving as I,D&E ambassador for the market.

Leader keeps giving me feedback that I’m careless and has invested no time or effort into my development. No learning on this project, only criticism. This was my up year, but it seems like they’re going to be a blocker. Should I roll off?
Applied for a job on LinkedIn a month ago. Never heard anything. A recruiter reached out a week ago for the same job. I killed the interview and got an offer. I am so pissed off that my salary has to be reduced because the employer was too lazy or didn’t want to or didn’t have time to vet applicants. It’s infuriating and souring the offer for me.
I had a super that would always appear behind me or circling my car late at night. Turns out it was a “me problem” when I reported it

How do you professionally address a noticeable lack of diversity on your team? More than 85% of my team is white or white passing, and of the remaining individuals none are Black, Indigenous, or AAPI.
Working on introducing ERGs at a company- how did your company decide the first ERGs to start with? How did they communicate the start of ERGs and roll out the structure?
God imagine working DEI at Twitter 😂😅
I’m trying to cultivate discussion oriented DEI spaces, any topical themes that would make fun and engaging discussions?
Just thought this to be very thought provoking, challenging some unconscious bias and stereotypes.
Hey! I created a bowl for DEIB practitioners and employers/hiring managers who need contractors or candidates .
My company has ERGs and one of them is pretty large and includes a lot of demographics. Within it, people are starting to kind of form their own subgroups (like based on office location or country-specific ethnicity). Does anyone have any thoughts around what would be appropriate for DEI practitioners to be aware of when serving these populations?
My boss makes jokes about me being from a different country whenever there is a work meeting or a gathering with coworkers, even though he knows where I am from. This usually occurs when I meet new work-related people or for example if I am in a situation that involves ethnic related subjects.
What is this? This is normal?
The first time I ignored that, but now it has become a pattern and is bothering me now. I am south-American working in the UK.
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!
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?

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.
hi! I work for an early-stage Fintech startup called Fennel; (www.fennel.com) focused on impact investing as well as shareholder activism and giving every day investors the tools they need to make informed and aligned decisions. I'm wondering what people think of this space and about ESG, given that there has been a lot of relevant media attention recently & would love to know if people make investment decisions based on factors like workforce equity, ceo pay, etc?

“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.
How do you deal with your “mentor” being threatened by your performance and gatekeeping information from you? Then turning around and giving you shit for not knowing things… but they don’t tell you anything and there is no way for you to know. My learning and development is being hindered and I’ve felt this for a long time, but coworker just confirmed this is the case. Now that I know I’m not “crazy” for thinking this, how should I approach this?
I’ve been given a D&I project for my firm which is ideal because it has always been a passion of mine. In the process I’ve noticed that no one is actually committed to this cause. How do you make management see that it’s not just about writing a check?
Let’s just admit that Linked In is a terrible platform for WOC. It’s just another tool ppl use to discriminate. I had to delete my profile picture and lock all of my social media accounts just to get interviews.LinkedIn
