On a call with the CEO talking about diversity and they compare a person with tattoos experiencing prejudice in the office to Black people colleague experiences... Meanwhile last I checked, a tattoo was a choice and removable. Also depending on placement, you can’t see it.

Getting a tattoo hasn't caused me to experience racism. This is silly.

It is indeed ridiculous, but in the scale of ridiculous racism statements in business, it seems quite trivial.

It’s not trivial at all actually because it speaks to how they have glaring blind spot when it comes to anything DEI-related. This inability to see it makes them ineffective when it comes to a BIPOCs EVP.

We spout gender equality, but often ask women to do things men don't get asked to do. From organizing lunches/events at work (pre-Rona), to babysitting our siblings because we are girls with motherly insticts. It is generally expected that women do certain things that are "for the good of the community" which is just unpaid work for no praise. Let's change this. Let's start the change at home and it will translate elsewhere If you won't ask your son to do it, don't ask your daughter to do it.
