Mike, actually. Hello there!

“Mike’s Angels” doesn’t have quite the same ring to it.

I'm a male, and my team is currently ALL women. My next hire has to be a male.... is this discrimination? Idk... but I have to do it, because it won't look good if i only hire females... and i won't be telling the candidate.

It's hard, though. I know it is not right, but I cannot appear to be biased towards women as well. In some corner of my head, I automatically ding points from a woman applicant because my team us already 100% women. Of course, I do my best to be impartial for everything else. I think as much as we want to be fair, this is part of being human. We aren't machines. We feel, we make snap judgments.

Dang it

Sit back and enjoy it dude. Watch out for the office snacks though.

It's called equality. Look up "positive descrimination" as a way to achieve a fair balance.
