I hate it here. I hate the woman who told my brilliant friend she was wasting everyone's time. I hate the people that are so eager to push you down to feel better about themselves. I hate how much i hear fear in everyons voice and behind everyones actions. I hate the people that steal questions and ideas and present them in leadership calls. I hate that diversity is not actually valued, instead poc and women that act like white men are. I hate to see attempts to change this get sidelined. ✌Out
Anyone lived in Seattle? Referred for a job at Amazon, but have never been to Seattle before. How is the weather, diversity, cost of living, etc?
I guess there were no eligible black people to be selected out of the 50 people approved to the appeal court. 🤷♀️They are packing the courts. There needs to be more diversity in America.
LEK London fish, what are your thoughts on the level of diversity in the office? L.E.K. Consulting
Why do people appear to be more likely to accept that gender discrimination exists in the workplace than they are to accept that racial discrimination does?
What percent of your GROSS income do you pay for rent? Age, gender, and if you’re sharing with a S/O would be helpful as well!
When I ask about a diversity when the virtual room is 80% White or South Asian - yes, lets get after it.
When I ask about diversity when the virtual room is 100% East Asian (but me - immigrant POC) - crickets.
Anyone else encountering this barrier time and again when trying to promote diversity?
To my friends in the right, do any of you consider the American Thinker is worth reading? I’m debating gender pay discrepancies with a youngster in another bowl. He lead with an AT article and I’m wondering if I’m being too hard on him.
What to do when you generally like your office culture, albeit lacking in racial diversity, but your leaders make culturally and racially insensitive and tone-deaf remarks...
When there’s a costume holiday party and three white men wear Afro wigs. Right after a whole agency wide speech about diversity, inclusivity, and sensitivity. Can I say something to someone about the wigs?
Two-thirds of women say they’ve been bullied by another woman at work.
What’s your take on it? I’m pretty sure that we’re equal with men on that one. Should bullying be assigned a gender?
You CAN be that leader that people want to work with. 1st, self assessment is required. Be honest: As a leader,have you engaged in/accepted Attribution Bias with a dash of gender &/or race bias? (See the pic) This is something we all need to be aware of as we lead our teams, provide performance feedback, & model the behaviors we'd like to see more of on our teams. Be on the lookout for Attribution Bias in yourself & on your team. It's a hindrance to creating a high-performing, inclusive culture.
As far as preferred gender pronouns go, I’m all about choosing he, she, xe, ze, whatever you want to describe yourself as - but can we please rethink using “they” and “their” to describe a single person? It gets confusing ya’ll. There’s zero judgement here, just grammatically speaking it introduces so much ambiguity and misunderstanding into the English language. That is all. Feel free to clap back if you think I’m out of line or misunderstanding something - always here to learn
I’ve been thinking about leaving my job for a couple of years, but one thing that always stopped me was this nagging feeling that I would be letting women down by not staying and making partner and improving the “ratio.” But I just got a job offer to be an executive at a company where I’ll be the *only* female leader, so I guess I’ll still be contributing to gender equality after all! 💪🏻 Very excited about this new opportunity! But also SUPER nervous!
As a diverse (minority / underrepresented) talent in my organization, sometimes I feel I'm a kind of an exotic animal in a zoo, where all the white people come to observe and point fingers in small differences as if they were attrocities. What if I prefer to NOT be in the spotlight for all diversity conversations? Does anybody else feel this way too?
Any recs for lightweight blue light filtering glasses? (Even though I took mine off hours ago it almost feels I still have them on / I have a lasting pressure / weight on the bridge of my nose). Also will add that 1) I’m petite & a lot of these popular/trendy oversized glasses look ridiculous on me & 2) right now I’m using a gender neutral black plastic frame. Previously I had a lighter weight pair but it had those 2 little plastic nose pieces and they would leave marks / indentations on my nose
How come we never talk about diversity of thought in our Agencies only diversity of gender and/or race? What’s the point of a racially diverse team that thinks the same?
I heard zoom has a filter that makes you look better (inaccurate description I’m sure). Anyone know how to find it?
Was offered a Senior role and now they are asking if I’d mind the title being Specialist instead of Senior. Job function and comp would be the same. Is the title arbitrary or does one convey a higher position?
I think women should get a day off for the first day of their period. Even when we dont have debilitating cramps its still uncomfortable af and the last thing I want to do us work
