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?

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.

As far as preferred gender pronouns go, I’m all about choosing he, she, xe, ze, whatever you want to describe yourself as - but can we please rethink using “they” and “their” to describe a single person? It gets confusing ya’ll. There’s zero judgement here, just grammatically speaking it introduces so much ambiguity and misunderstanding into the English language. That is all. Feel free to clap back if you think I’m out of line or misunderstanding something - always here to learn

Saw this on LinkedIn this morning. I must admit at times I don’t get questioned by just men but women as well who don’t understand why I’m working tirelessly for equality. They either state it’s an uphill battle or “all in my head.” Has anyone been told that gender equality is a mirage? How did you handle the situation? No wrong answers!

I cried today for the first time in 20 years. When is the last time you cried, how old are you, what is your gender, and why?

Something I’m struggling with as it relates to the rise of the “Karens”. I get it, Karens suck and are very real but why is it that women always have to deal with this kind of stereotype? Men, especially Trumpian white men, are just as bad about their own privilege. Maybe they handle it differently or maybe people are less inclined to record them? I don’t know. But somehow it feels like yet another divide between women. Just wish we could make it less about gender and more about privilege.

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?

Just a shout out at the diversity I have been seeing while on-line shopping. It is something I am really happy to see. The various skin colors, hair types and body sizes are refreshing! Finally, I see people that look like ME! There are still some aspects that I am trying to fully embrace because for too long I was feed the lie of what the "desirable" body or hair type was. BUT I am changing and I am glad my children will not go through that brainwashing.

Hey ladies, I’m in the middle of a career dilemma. I switched to industry from federal consulting 6 months ago. The company I joined hasn’t been the best. I did get a large pay bump (75 -> 105).
