Welcome to the HR Equity and Inclusion Bowl, let’s come together to discuss ways we can change organization culture, so that all staff feel a sense of belonging.
Does BCW not allow conservatives to be employed at this company? I’m sitting through another meeting where we are highlighting amazing women and it is so politicized I am completely offended. AOC, Biden, Ilhan, Hilary... I mean at try to be inclusive when speaking of diversity. You can’t name a single female in the Conservative party throughout history?
Is anyone wondering what life will really be like for all the new Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion executives that many companies are hiring and bragging about now? I wonder how much power they will actually have to effect change. I wonder how long the trend will last.
Any WIT in Boston? I'm interviewing for a really exciting opportunity in downtown and would be relocating there after it's safe. Would love to hear about any groups or resources!
Bonus points for intersectionality and welcoming of LGBT individuals (I'm a gender non-conforming butch lesbian). Bonus bonus points for a group that isn't all white.
Also where should I be looking to live? I heard Boston has a lot of racism issues and is very segregated...
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.
Any agency in Chicago hiring for Diversity & Inclusion and open to actually addressing the challenges and make change? Bonus points for an agency that allocates a proper budget.

Help! I'm a Sped teacher (ELA inclusion) that comes home to a High Functioning Autistic 9 yr old with ADHD and a slew of sensory issues that has sworn off soap 🤢. I've made visual check list for bathroom processes, bought timers, tried different bars and body washeds with net sponges, towels and even invested in a pricey showerhead with multiple settings. His set of needs are out of my wheel house. I need suggestions before I just pack up and move out *sarcasm but at the end of my rope*.
Hello fishes, Do you have suggestions on Diversity & Inclusion activities that can be done virtually with a group? I found few ideas in google but would love to hear about any experiences and suggestions.
What’s your favorite or must do course for Diversity & Inclusion?
Could be on LinkedIn learning or other platforms.
After 3 years, my partners and I are sunsetting our side project. It started with a brief we got at work. But we wanted to do more. So we made Secret Code to help eliminate the gender gap in tech.

As a leader in cyber, one of my aspirations is to increase the diversity of any organization that I am a part of.
For example…When I was in Big4, I referred several diverse candidates who are thriving & now, at McKinsey & Company, I set a personal goal to refer 1 diverse candidate, especially in (but not necessarily exclusive to) cyber/tech/IT, for every month of my tenure.

Can an employee use a Virginia Criminal Justice Agency Offender Information Form for the i9? USIC website says “The ID document listed first in List B does not have to be a driver's license - it can be any government-issued ID card, even a parolee's ID card if the date of birth, gender, height, eye color, and address are on it.” But it’s a certified FORM not ID card. Thoughts?
I had an interview and the recruiter (White F) could not stop talking about DEI and POC % hires. It’s great yes but I didn’t even mention or ask about it yet. Barely had time to talk about myself. I was slightly uncomfortable. She made me feel like a diversity hire.

Has anyone done a 2-hr roundtrip daily commute for years? Unfortunately in this situation due to location of spouse’s job -it’s fairly rural and that area doesn’t have the same level of education (kid is about to start K), diversity, convenience, jobs opps me, stuff to do or parks as our current city has. Switching jobs is not an option for him unfortunately. I do feel very guilty about the long commute for him though.

Finding leads is becoming my bottleneck.
How do you guys find leads consistently?
I've used Google searches, LinkedIn, Apollo, Crunchbase (trial) and some other tools. I feel like I've exhausted all leads and lucky to nail down 10 new ones a day.
Any tips on getting more?
Ideally start-ups that are hiring or recently funded, with less than 20 employees.
Hey I know no one probably knows me but I was let go at my job. Decided to go separate ways. Was doing quite well as an AE didn’t like management and didn’t have the same visions.

Hi, I have a 1st round interview coming up for an associate position at L.E.K. Consulting and was wondering if anyone could give some insight into the interview? I believe it will be 2 cases, 30 min strategy and 30 min quant. Have been doing some case prep over past few months, but nothing too in depth or LEK specific. Kind of nervous - never done a case interview and feel a little underprepared

I joined cognizant in feb 21 with 18 LPA (17.3 fix) & 7 yeo. I don't like the project in which I am and also how it is managed. I cleared all the rounds of Deloitte and today in salary discussion with HR, i asked for 25. He said we can give max 21 fixed as there is a cap. Is there any cap like this in current situation. I am in ServiceNow tech and 3 yoe ppl are getting 12-15 LPA. Is HR palying bluff with me or they will for sure not give more than 21? He said you recently switch so 21 max poss.

How do I transition from a Senior Executive Assistant role to Project Management? Ideally I would like to work in tech. How should I go about this? I currently work in the Real estate industry so it would be a totally new career path. The reason I want to move into tech is I feel like many of the companies I see have the same values as me (diversity & inclusion) and a good culture is so important to me.
Let’s just admit that Linked In is a terrible platform for WOC. It’s just another tool ppl use to discriminate. I had to delete my profile picture and lock all of my social media accounts just to get interviews.LinkedIn
I am the only immigrant with an accent in my office and it’s almost a daily thing now that my bosses/coworkers would explain terms to me that I already know. I’d often freeze when they do that because my first reaction is always confused. How do you talk about it with them after the fact especially when it seems like it’s not a big deal to them?

God imagine working DEI at Twitter 😂😅
I'm dealing with some toxic masculinity at work from someone that works on my team. Does anyone have advice on constructive ways to address this type of behavior?
Shortly after George Floyd's death, this video commentary by Kimberly Jones went viral. As a white person, it's hard for me to watch because of its powerful raw truthfulness. But I think every white person should sit down and watch this video because it clearly explains the frustrations and fears of Black people as well as the BLM movement and the difference between protesting, rioting, and looting.
Just thought this to be very thought provoking, challenging some unconscious bias and stereotypes.
“I must honestly confess that I go through moments of disappointment when I have to recognize that there aren’t enough white persons in our country who are willing to cherish democratic principles over privilege. But I am grateful to God that some are left.” This quote is from MLK in 1968 about how he sensed the movement was losing the battle for the soul of the nation.
I’m trying to cultivate discussion oriented DEI spaces, any topical themes that would make fun and engaging discussions?
Does anyone have experience with starting a Business/Employee Resource Group? I would really like to start one for Middle Eastern and North Africans as my company does not have one. There are many discussions that could benefit others and opportunities for intersectionality here. TIA!
My company has ERGs and one of them is pretty large and includes a lot of demographics. Within it, people are starting to kind of form their own subgroups (like based on office location or country-specific ethnicity). Does anyone have any thoughts around what would be appropriate for DEI practitioners to be aware of when serving these populations?
In honor of National Voter Registration Day, The New Yorker released the transcript of a previously unpublished interview with James Baldwin, who gave a first-hand account of "Freedom Day 1963," a Black voter-registration drive in Selma, Alabama. Baldwin's descriptions from that day are so vivid and detailed that you can feel the fear and anger of the event. If you have a couple of minutes, I highly recommend you read it.
How do you deal with your “mentor” being threatened by your performance and gatekeeping information from you? Then turning around and giving you shit for not knowing things… but they don’t tell you anything and there is no way for you to know. My learning and development is being hindered and I’ve felt this for a long time, but coworker just confirmed this is the case. Now that I know I’m not “crazy” for thinking this, how should I approach this?
Hey! I created a bowl for DEIB practitioners and employers/hiring managers who need contractors or candidates .
hi! I work for an early-stage Fintech startup called Fennel; (www.fennel.com) focused on impact investing as well as shareholder activism and giving every day investors the tools they need to make informed and aligned decisions. I'm wondering what people think of this space and about ESG, given that there has been a lot of relevant media attention recently & would love to know if people make investment decisions based on factors like workforce equity, ceo pay, etc?
My boss makes jokes about me being from a different country whenever there is a work meeting or a gathering with coworkers, even though he knows where I am from. This usually occurs when I meet new work-related people or for example if I am in a situation that involves ethnic related subjects.
What is this? This is normal?
The first time I ignored that, but now it has become a pattern and is bothering me now. I am south-American working in the UK.

100% depends on the demographics of the company as it stands now. That being said, if you have over 10 diverse employee's I would consider starting an ERG as one of your goals to bring awareness to the diversity in your workplace and make employees feel like they have a safe space to discuss what they need to.
The size and culture of your company plays a big part in what to do. You don't want to do too much too fast without building it up and without buy in from senior leadership. Starting up a DEI Committee/Council is a good first step. ERGs/Affinity groups are good as well. But should be employee ran and only started if an employee brings the idea.
It would be establishing a cultural that supports Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. Otherwise you won’t have any success. “Diversity is being invited to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance.” Vernā Myers
Establishing a wide understanding of micro aggressions and the harm caused even when “well intentioned “
Without that you may have a bunch of folks thinking they’re being supportive, showing what they’ve learned, but instead being a Portlandia character
5-year Strategic Plan and Strong data…
Conduct a DEAI assessment of all internal operations (recruitment, hiring and retention practices) and external facing products and services. Would someone from a different background be able to observe true investments in DEI? …Where do you post vacant positions so that someone from a diverse background can access it? How you reviewed interview questions to remove bias from the interview process? Re external things, what’s on your website that says diversity is important? Have you included diverse perspectives in the development and testing of your product/service?
From that report use a SWOT analysis to determine
where your strengths and growth areas are and devise a plan to address what needs to be improved.
You could use your findings to share with team members (i.e., ERG) and get authentic buy-in.
