I love this (queer-positive comic creators really bring so much joy to the world) ☺️ The same goes for gender!
Do you think diversity training actually works? I can't tell if it's just a way to tick a liability box or if it's actually effective.
Was at an event recently. Seems like advertising really only cares about diversity as it applies to white women. I think this industry wants to stay white.
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.
I want to know from HR or senior management that do you offer less to female candidate provided she has same skills as a male candidate?
Does in IT industry gender doesn't impact compensation?
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.
From the moderator, for discussion.
Should white males be concerned that current focus on diversity will lead to negative results
If Yes, why and under what conditions
If No, why not?
Hey, I graduated UChicago and took a finance analyst position. However, I am looking to switch into management consulting because of a couple factors I have realized matter more to me than I realized: 1. Team and Collaborative problem-solving, 2. Diversity of companies and industries I am exposed to because of entrepreneurial hopes in the future.
Would appreciate any likes I could dm or any comments with firms I should look into that could be a good fit and hire off-cycle or for January 2023!
I9 verification support needed:
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?
Hello! It seems this bowl is not very active but I'd like it to be. So here's my story: Born & raised in PR, moved to CA for undergrad & have been here since then. I graduated from law school in 2019, followed by a 2 yr bk clerkship. I did the evening program. I really enjoyed law school, in spite of the microaggressions, the late nights, & crazy competition. Love all things diversity in the law. Anyway, currently looking for a position in NYC/DC area. 🤗
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.
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...
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.
I am am Asian woman. I started a discussion about how we could improve our diversity and inclusion efforts on my UX team. I offered a possible solution. Out of a team of 14, only 4 responded, 2 female in support, 2 male with lukewarm and hostile responses. The silence is deafening from the rest of the team (all male). I don't want to be here anymore.
I attribute this to being in Utah, majority white. Is it like this everywhere? Or if I change jobs, will it be better?
I recommend listening to the podcast called "The True Story of the Gender Pay Gap" by Freakonomics. I posted this in another thread because it talks about many factors feeding into the gender wage gap
If you were starting a mid-sized company of your own, what would be your top diversity & inclusion goals to realize by the end of your 2nd year? I work for a friends start up and have next to no experience, trying to not screw up too badly.
Equal Weight SPY, QQQ alternatives
Thoughts on ETFs that are equal weight maps to the S&P and the Nasdaq? Looking to slowly reduce my exposure to the market cap heavy constituents (AAPL, TSLA, etc) and increase diversity to the smaller constituents. Independence prevents me from BlackRock and Fidelity funds, so curious as to what other PwC folks are doing.
Best consulting firms for real inclusion?
Controversial question - why is the EA population so heavily skewed towards the female gender?
Has anyone here worked for Mercer in a non-consultant/client-facing role, specifically in the Chicago office, and can share their experience (Did you like it? How was the work environment, etc)?
I’ve been reading more and more in other financial forums about people refinancing into interest-only mortgages as a means of maximizing cash available for investment. Help me understand the argument for doing this? I’m starting to see it could make a lot of sense for people who 1) have a ton of equity and aren’t worried about the housing market flinching, 2) probably won’t keep their house forever, and 3) already have a high net worth. Thoughts?
I have worked in business development for 5 years and quit my work late last year due to personal reasons. I'm now actively looking to get back into work and am considering Luxembourg as an option. Any idea how the job market is w.r.t. non-technical roles(account manager, account executive, etc.) and will companies sponsor visa for such roles??
I am currently based in Madrid where I was last employed.
My brother recently graduated high school and wants to work for a year or two before he starts his undergrad. What sort of jobs should he be looking for that could help his resume in the future? He eventually wants to pursue engineering
Why do they wanna say it so bad?
Anyone work in tax at a big four and has flexible hour arrangement? I would like to have my first child soon and I wanna know if flexible hour arrangement is a feasible option.
Five interviews in, all pumped with enthusiasm and received well, then ghosted by the recruiter. It’s been over a week, two friendly follow up emails, and no responses. This along with two other opportunities where the screening recruiter met with me, went great, and they won’t respond either. Can anyone help me not loose my mind at this point?!
Hello! I’m looking to enter the talent acquisition space, and am very interested in recruitment. I’ve held an HR role in the past and currently recruit students for a workforce development program. Do you know of any companies who are willing to do on the job training in a recruitment role? I believe I have a lot of applicable experience, but have never had a formal recruitment title. I appreciate any feedback you can offer.
1 year out of school w/ 6 months of experience doing contract work as an ERP consultant , currently working with a strategy firm (6 months ) ... liked the technical stuff way more . But both are startups and feeling discouraged because I can’t seem to land an interview anywhere in the industry for any type of entry level consulting roles . Got an offer from big firm but blew it because clearance process took too long . Should I give up and switch industries ? No idea what to do ...
First week of school resource! Help your students transition back after remote and hybrid learning!

How is growth and pay (raises, VC, etc) at boutique firms such as Slalom Consulting and Credera
In-house counsel - would you prefer working at a big company specializing in a field of law, eg, privacy, IP, employment, etc, or a small company being a general counsel? Assume the small company has a higher risk of going under compared to the big company, but higher reward (via stock), and the large company pays a healthier salary.
Some schools near me (Seattle) are closing due to coronavirus. I don't know what to do if my kids will be home- I can wfh but will need a sitter. Who can I ask to sit in this situation? Any advice?

So, a recruiter gave me feedback that my lack SPHR or SHRM-SCP is causing my resume to be knock out by AI and human recruiters despite my position and work history in Multinationals and being in Technology. They suggested that we put SPHR ( Lapsed). I let it lapse in 2017. What is your opinion? Plus if I were to take another certification - should I take SPHR or SHRM-SCP?
My company currently has no employee recognition whatsoever besides rather low annual raises. Ideas on what could be implemented on a monthly/quarterly basis to boost the morale among those where pay is not the only thing that matters?
Attention HR professionals at medical device/pharma companies: will those workers who regularly visit hospitals to service equipment, give clinical instructions on product, and sell, be eligible for vaccines any time soon? I’m getting conflicting info on where these workers fall in the vaccine hierarchy, and of course every state’s rollout is different.
Been searching for an entry level HR coordianator or generalist position but haven't received a call back for 6 months. I come from Banking - years and years of Customer service, reporting, Employee Development, Researching cases, Treasury. I have been at the bank 17 years. I know some of this can transfer over. I don't know what to do as I know my resume is not getting through ATS or if it's just me. Any advice?
We’re looking to hire HRIS Specialists in NYC. Finance background a plus. I believe it’s hybrid. PM me if interested
I've been in PeopleOps (mostly focused on TA Ops) for over 9 years now. I've somehow gotten by without a degree in HR or a certification, but would like to get some more education to continue to advance my career. What are your thoughts on PHR vs SPHR vs SHRM for someone with my years of experience and current role as a manager?
Hi all, as a Talent Acquisition Partner that is looking to start expending my Professional￼ education, would you recommend pursuing SHRM-CP certification?
*URGENT JOB NEEDED* - BDM/E-com account management roles
Hey all, as I see a lot of recruiters in this group I wanted to know if anyone is hiring for BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGER or E-COM ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT or VENDOR MANAGEMENT roles.
My husband is relentlessly trying to get a job in Canada/US but he is getting either regret mails or no response for referrals.
It would be really helpful if there is anyone is hiring for such roles or if you can refer to those roles in your organization. TIA :)
HR leaders of large companies with multiple locations - do you love your ATS and HRIS providers? Are they one in the same or two providers? If so, do share! ADP is not meeting our needs and customer service is terrible!
Are recruiters worth more than L&D specialists? We have a new recuiter that transferred in from another dept. & is already making more than me and has a higher comp range. We have same tenure & they have NO prev. recuiting experience. I should also add I have been helping cover recuiting in interim. I also help cover HR tasks, have my SHRM, 5 years of HR exp., and 2 degrees. Is the "value" for recruiters more than L&D? I feel a little taken advantage of, but want to know if I'm off base here.
Hi all, I’ve recently onboarded as an HR recruiter with a small NGO. It has been wonderful so far. I want to make the most of my new role. If you have any suggestions or advise, I’d greatly appreciate it.
Hey all, new to this bowl. Currently a Tech Recruiter and eventually want to make the transition into a HRBP or HR Generalist role. Would love to hear from anyone who started in recruiting then transitioned into another area of HR. Have been thinking of either working on PHR certification or MBA with focus in HR mgt. Thanks!
Is anyone a member of the SHRM Executive Network and do you see any value in your membership?
Anyone work in HR for Amazon? We have a new distribution center hiring some different HR positions and I’m curious about salary? Are you willing to share? I have bachelors in HR Management, SHRM-Cp, and 5 years exp
I have an opportunity for a Director role in the cannabis industry. I have never worked in this industry before and would love to hear the good and not so good for working in HR in this industry. For reference, it is legal for recreational use in the state the role is in. I am a seasoned professional within HR.
I am! Let’s talk about it! 1. I’ll never read White Fragility 2. BIPOC folks are the only people note getting paid about THEIR lived experience 3. As a BIPIC DEI Professional that has been in very white spaces I’ve had way too many experiences where the voices of white people speaking about the woes of BIPOC have been amplified over the actual people being oppressed
Do you have any suggested reading for white allies you could share?
“Diversity” has become code, it seems, which allows white people (like me) to avoid talking about (and taking action to counteract) the uncomfortable truth at the core of the matter: white supremacy is embedded in all of our systems. By systems, I mean processes, habits, beliefs, and way of working - in general. It’s not necessarily anything that any one person does (although it very often is), it’s just the way things are.
We have the tools to run audits and get to the center of the problem if we wish to do so in our workplaces. The investigative question to explore is: Why don’t we use them?
To me it’s the same thing. I recently went to play golf for the first time in my life, I was the only woman in the group, and I could see how people were building relationship leading to multimillion deals right there. It’s all about inner circles and old money...
I’m absolutely floored how white people make money on racism issue, as if we didn’t make enough through the past 500 years
Of course not, she is igniting people with a tolerable amount of guilt, give them verdict “You have white fragility” and a sentence “Live with it”. Which effectively a) does nothing to improve the actual situation with racism b) make white people even more defensive and alienated cause that is what guilt does, instead of making them constructive
White privilege on display yet again. Black professionals talk about white behavior - they're called radical and angry, categorized as "not a good culture fit", and dismissed as "playing the race card". A white woman talks about and critiques white behavior and she becomes a millionaire.
Can we also talk about this? https://www.wsj.com/articles/demand-for-chief-diversity-officers-is-high-so-is-turnover-11594638000?
As a DEI professional I feel like there should be systems that are put in place to disrupt what was never intended to be inclusive. i.e. managers being required to assess their function/process and consult with a DEI professional to determine whether or not it’s inclusive, how it’s missing the mark, and a clear multiphase plan to start infusing inclusive practices and policies into what they’re already doing. There needs to be accountability at ALL levels.
As a black woman, I think disrupting everything that gives rise to the continuation of racism needs to start in schools with cultural literacy training. We need to move away from the idea that people can opt out of thinking about race and that it’s ok or a “difference of opinion” to not believe that bias fueled antagonism of black people and other people of color is a thing. Seeing how parents reacted when Nickelodeon did that commercial break of silence to demonstrate how long George Floyd’s airways had been obstructed really made it crystal clear to me that some people feel like they should not have to think about these things and their children shouldn’t have to think about them either. How will things change if this is the case?
Thanks for sharing this 🤦🏽♀️
Was gifted White Fragility and promptly donated it to my building library. I’m Black- I don’t need to read about that. My lived experiences are enough.
