I’m curious; inclusion special education teachers, what is your current caseload size? 🤔
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.
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 ?
New York. All talk and no action here when it comes to actual inclusion and not cosmetic efforts.
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.

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
India, one of the potentially most diverse diaspora on the planet, is currently moving away from principles of diversity and inclusion.
Change my mind...
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
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.
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?

My joining date is 1st August in @PwC India, I received another offer and asked HR to match it. She came back with another offer less than what I got some where else.

Should I wait or join other company on same date?
