I'd love to know if you've answered Fishbowl's poll question, and how you answered, if you did.

TRUE or FALSE: "I am satisfied with the number of Black professionals at my company."

I believe most people are not satisfied with the number of Black professionals at there company. However I think during this time we are in a position to hold companies accountable like never before.

As an example we need to start have clear asks that are actionable to hold leadership accountable. For instance, incorporating a policy to identify more diverse students in other HCBUs, examine how the diverse professionals in your organization are assigned to tasks (are there biases that you can identify?), come up with 2 - 3 key areas for success and track the progress of each.

Change won't be easy, however we can maximize this opportunity

I’ve been looking for a new job for months & finally found one that’s a good fit. Going in-house (I’m a 7th year). I cannot help but feel nonstop anxiety. The base salary is $50K more than I make now, plus equity so the jump makes sense - I’m just legitimately terrified. Tips???
