If Barrett gets nominated the last 3 SC nominations would all have been Catholics. Gorsuch and Kavanagh also went to high school together at a private all boys school outside of DC. Guess diversity of thought and experiences isn't an important consideration for the supreme court
Does anyone that would be considered an addition to diversity at a firm (gender, race, sexual orientation) dislike the diversity initiative standards of forcing a desired outcome regardless of applications and candidate quality? It seems unfair to qualified candidates to feel like maybe they got a job because of that initiative and not because of their quality as a candidate.
I’m curious; inclusion special education teachers, what is your current caseload size? 🤔

New York. All talk and no action here when it comes to actual inclusion and not cosmetic efforts.
Why don't we introduce ourselves here. Please do mention below points and you can add more if you want.
Gender - (don't be a lier)
One thing you love -
I’ve been feeling incredibly frustrated at the lack of follow through and systemic change that our industry promises over and over. Remember the black squares? Remember the Commit to Change initiative? Remember all your favorite agencies talking loud about racial and gender equality?
So instead of punching the wall I’ve been stepping up my random acts of kindness.
I saw an old man with only one functional leg and arm, struggling with groceries. I carried them to his apartment 2 blocks away...
Everyone gets up in arms about what race women prefer to date, but don't care if women discriminate by age, gender, able-bodiedness. It just comes off super entitled.
Anyone buy a house in a very white neighborhood? I grew up working class in a very Black/ Hispanic town and now my first home purchase is in an affluent town with no Black people. The neighbors seem very nice but I am just in shock still. I have to adjust to the lack of diversity
Need some perspective and experiences sharing on coping with going through isolation phase post married life. am a male and curious to understand the opposite gender views on dealing with such situatiions.Hope can connect with matured souls here..Thanks!

I make more than my bf by $16K. Since we are moving in together he said I should pay more rent & for utilities and groceries. Is this fair ?
thoughts on a white person saying they support diversity, but thinks a room still needs white people to be diverse? *imagine this was said in a very condescending tone*
What do you all do for dating in Toronto. Dating apps are ok, looking to meet opposite gender irl. Any places, events, socials or even dating specific events that you guys recommend. Newish to the city so I don't have an extensive network to ask around about single friends.
Read this and thought it was spot on. https://www.npr.org/2019/08/06/744121321/even-a-grammar-geezer-like-me-can-get-used-to-gender-neutral-pronouns
India, one of the potentially most diverse diaspora on the planet, is currently moving away from principles of diversity and inclusion.
Change my mind...
Delta Vacations (Because comments were removed from Glassdoor)
*Leadership more concerned about advancing their careers within Delta Air Lines than addressing their toxic manager(s)
*Leadership that outwardly promote diversity and inclusion but internally only promote their favorites
*Manager(s) that manage from a place of ego vs. emotional intelligence
*Manager(s) allowed to gossip, lie and speak ill of female employees, both past and present
*Leadership is fully aware of above.
Any recruiters here that work for Amazon? I have an interview coming up and was looking to see if anyone knew the range for a technical diversity recruiter? Thanks in advance
He: dev lead
She: lead prod mngr
He: comments on doc to confirm an iteration, tags junior Proj mngr(male)
She: replies with final
He: I want Jr. pm’s response,he wrote this
She: this has been decided, proceed as mentioned
She: sends to group, mentions iterations are worked on as a department not as an individual. move forward with iteration
Him: just checking if there are stuff that could cause legal issues (+ some bs)
Her: it’s internal wording 🙄
Gender issues? Not the first time
If you were offered a role at a company where there was little to no diversity within the group you were interviewing for (not even at the level you were interviewing for, or at senior leadership level) would this be a red flag for you in terms of culture, & potential opportunities? I want to keep an open mind but this company has been around for 20 years. The people I interviewed with were great but im concerned that there’s a larger problem at play. Thoughts?

Introducing a Latino border patrol agent today, Trump said, “he speaks perfect English!!”
But some of you need to see a video of him putting on a robe and burning a cross before you drop the act.
Pretty simple: if you really believe Mueller completely exonerated Trump, you should want Muller to testify publicly.
But if you don’t want Mueller to testify publicly...
Ha ha ha.
In 2006 Amy Klobuchar, then a district attorney, declined to bring charges against a cop who had shot and killed a Native American man.
Two days ago that cop, Derek Chauvin, murdered George Floyd.
Amy Klobuchar needs to resign.
Analysis of the economic impacts of Biden's tax plan from the (non-partisan) Tax Foundation. Some lowlights:
-585K fewer jobs
-1.51% reduction in GDP
-less after tax income for all taxpayers
All this while still not covering the cost of the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations... so we all get less and deficits continue to grow. I think we can all agree that what we need now is less jobs, a smaller economy, less money, and more debt, right? 🙄
If the Mueller probe turns out to have damning evidence against Trump, what are the odds he may be brought to justice?

I’m very concerned about abortions eventually becoming illegal. This would result in tons of women taking matters into their own hands. Those who are pro life, what is the solution to the problem that making abortions illegal presents?
The most relentlessly corrupt person in US political history, with an equally complicit party behind him.
I think one of the biggest issues with America today is that the collective memory for many (and Republicans in particular) goes back about as far as 1945. And even then, it's idealized.
It makes me laugh a little that tweets are being used as evidence in the impeachment hearings. Anyone else?
Can Republicans now acknowledge that COVID19 needs serious united and concerted effort to manage it and can both Democrats and Republicans get to work on this *NOW*? This is is getting very scary and is devastating for the country.
How did we get here? What the F is happening to the old dudes here.
- Praising Ford for his contributions isn’t inherently bad. Saying “he has good bloodlines if you know about that stuff” is pretty anti-Semitic.
- Saying the someone thinks their own history makes them a clear choice on who to vote for in 2020 is fine. Saying if a black person hasn’t figured out how to vote in 2020 then they’re not black is pretty racist.
Biden admin should also sanction Belarus as they are actively supporting the Russian invasion in Ukraine. This will make a country rethink their support for a madman.
So considering the whoe la guardia issue. Are we ready to separate the whole borderwall/ immigration issue from the whole running the government thing?
