Is the push for diversity in ad agencies really a push for diversity, or is it a push for better, fairer (and much needed, and deserved) opportunities for Black people? Why no mention of opportunities for Native-Americans, Arab-Americans, Asians, etc? We had a discussion in our agency where one (black) person on the committee that helped move us forward said it was ‘a black issue’ primarily.

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.
“Tone policing is defined as "a conversational tactic that dismisses the ideas being communicated when they are perceived to be delivered in an angry, frustrated, sad, fearful, or otherwise emotionally charged manner." Managers striving to create a workplace based on equity and inclusion must understand how tone policing silences members of marginalized groups and allows discrimination to persist.” https://www-businessinsider-com.cdn.ampproject.org/c/s/www.businessinsider.com/how-to-identify-and-help-stop-tone-policing-in-workplace-2020-8?amp
Thanks for doing this Paul! I'm pretty interested in data on this. Do some states have teachers w/ more student loans than others? Is there a gender gap?
How gender diverse is your recruitment pipeline? Have been observing a year-on-year decline in female candidates as a % of total candidates. Recent few years have been in the low to mid 30s. Interested to see how other firms are going.

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.
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.
I love this (queer-positive comic creators really bring so much joy to the world) ☺️ The same goes for gender!
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.
I had an interview and the recruiter (White F) could not stop talking about DEI and POC % hires. It’s great yes but I didn’t even mention or ask about it yet. Barely had time to talk about myself. I was slightly uncomfortable. She made me feel like a diversity hire.

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.
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...
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.

I have an Australian Visa 482, sponsorship is from HCL with a validity of 2 years. I could not travel due to some family issues and i switched to a different company.
Now I want to travel, and the validity is still left for 1+ year. If I ask for onsite for Australia in the current company, the same visa will be applicable for the visa is invalid now as the sponsorship was from my previous company.

Cause it’s impossible to quantify
I think you’re way ahead of the curve for even asking this question. Imagine a pyramid with 3 tiers. The base consists of most companies that still view DE&I in terms of race and gender. The middle tier contains a few companies that realize “diversity” isn’t always a physically observable characteristic, and that includes neurodivergent representation. The tip consists of only a handful of companies focused on cognitive DE&I, having discovered that better quantity and quality of idea generation comes from a broad spectrum of life experiences.
I've found a few places that have neurodiversity-related hiring practices, but often that simply related to interview accommodations. I'd love to see those same companies broadly share any stats on neurodivergent managers/executives, but I haven't seen a single one--have you?
