Yikesss

I'm a woman and a minority and the article's tone seems a bit more biased than necessary. If you take Deloitte at their word, it sounds like they're saying 1) we still have a lot of white men in decision making roles and so they need to be involved allies and 2) millennials don't associate with specific diversity groups the same way previous generations have so we need to evolve. But the article kind of makes it seem like they're creating new groups that are focused on white men because diversity is so passe, no?

So the Co-Chair of the Deloitte Black Action Council was not a Black woman but an Indian Woman who is now the Chief Diversity Officer. I feel a little duped and bamboozled. As a Black American this person does not share our history with slavery, Jim Crow, etc. I don’t think anything will come of this council. I wonder are black initiatives will become an all minority initiative. Is Black hiring going to increase. Will more blacks be considered for senior management up to partner positions

Have two offers and unsure which to take. Ex Big 4 and have done software startups since. Option 1: Director role back in Big 4. Good package. Good fit with my area of expertise, focusing on tech solutions and partnering with startups. Working across all industries and clients. Option 2: Big Tech/GAFAM (level = L6 google/e6 FB/65 Microsoft, which I’m told is Director equivalent) Even better package. Account Technology Strategist. Less client diversity but using breadth of their tech.
