Sunday night sounds to me like a perfect time for people to listen to the lived experiences of others not like them, D1! Some people don't have the luxury of being able to choose 'convenient' times to ponder the effects of the dynamics I'm talking about.

The worst discrimination is the between the first and developing worlds. Color, class, gender and those other ones in the West are nothing in magnitude in comparison. I wish people would prioritize and focus on this more. In the meantime we can celebrate the ACLU getting more rights for some slightly less rich citizens in the richest country in the history. Woo hoo

I didn't say it doesn't.

That's because those people choose to ignore problems that don't directly affect their daily lives OP. They think they can hit Donate 5$ when swiping their card at the grocery store for a day or stand around with a sign on their employers dime "protesting" and they are true difference makers

Not sure we're talking about the same thing, D1. (Plus, if you need any more evidence of the power of donating and protesting, look no further than recent ACLU successes in court and the failure of the GOP "healthcare" bills!)

🍿

👏🏼👏🏼 also, I love how Asian discrimination only becomes an issue in the national conscience when it's time to use us as a coolie to advance conservative agendas and divide minorities further.

Anyone else experiencing toxicity in remote startup environments? Greater abuse of time and personal freedom, less encouragement of empathy from leaders, delusions of far greater diversity accomplishments, lack of clarity and communication… How to clear the air and establish structure from afar… or GTFO?

Do NOT claim you are "colorblind" in the workplace. 1. DE&I knowledge is now a core leadership competency. Colorblind claims will earn you the reputation of being DEI-ignorant at best & racist at worst. 2. Colorblindness within the context of workplace diversity is an obvious lie. You do NOT want to be painted as an intellectually dishonest leader. 3. Colorblind claims signal that you lack the leadership skills & vocabulary to have key conversations. Ask questions here, in this safe space.
