My company is in need of a update online, could use your opinions! We need to better showcase our culture (caring, supportive, fun, intelligent IT industry leaders) as well as diversity. We are predominantly white still but making strides to improve here. What’s the best way to approach? I don’t want to seem disingenuous or that we are singling out our diverse employees (asking for photos). We have a remote and on-site workforce about 350+ EEs. Non white EEs make up about 35% of the company rn.

Hiring someone to lead and manage a DEIB program would be a great start if your organization is really invested and sees value in DEIB.

If you’re just updating a landing page to show how diverse your company is, applicants, candidates, employees, and customers/clients will see through the performativity if it’s not actually a part of the organizational culture.

I’m passionate about DEIB and am both an advocate and student of the subject. Happy to share whatever resources I have!

Don’t do what my university did and find like four black people (all together) to stand in a group of a white women and use that as a cover photo for diversity lol. There wasn’t any other person of color in the picture despite many more Latino and Asian students lmao.


But also for more helpful advice. Seek volunteers for the showcase and ensure that the definition of diversity doesn’t just include outward appearance. I usually see these done perfomatively and they end up ignoring neurodivergency or LGBTQ people

like

Yes 100% agreed. Thank you for the idea of asking for volunteers!

Hi, great call, do not single out employees of color. Has your company done any work in the diversity space? Meaning, volunteer events, hired any diverse speakers, career fairs, out reach, donations to diverse organizations/charities? If so, with consent, use photos from those events. It will convey two things, diversity important and that you are a good corporate citizen. If you have not done any of these things, then it may be time to consider if diversity is really important to you or if you just want to appear diverse on your website.

We have started a DEI program but frankly, haven’t had enough time to really devote to it. In terms of hiring, I’d say at least 50% of new hires are from a diverse background. We’ve implemented a diversity segment in our monthly newsletter discussing and recognizing diverse holidays. It is important to us to, we’re just lacking resources to really have an in depth program at the moment..
I love your ideas, Would you mind explaining what you’ve seen in regard to hiring diverse speakers?

Working from home - Would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on this.

I've always been the type to work non-stop during the work day, however with WFH, the hours are getting longer and longer. I've come to terms with this and instead of being upset at long hours I've decided to sneak time during the 9-5 period to go to the gym/read/play games since I know emails and meetings go past the usual 9-5.

I do feel guilty, but on the other hand it seems like there isn't balance when WFH.
