Cool PWC1. I think most ‘diversity’ initiatives are themselves racist. Hiring people due to skin color or sex is really stupid. We should be after diversity of skills and background. A business is not for creating PC virtue signals, and I say that as a Democrat. The solution to why men and Whites/Asians/Indias dominate tech isn’t solved by hiring people based on skin color, nor do I think it is the responsibility of private enterprises.

Should not be all white but shouldn’t be mostly minorities as well because white people need jobs too and it’s not reflective of our country. It’s too late to have programs in college and beyond. Our youth needs to be inspired while in middle/high school. Once we can get racial and gender representation, we can work on socio-economic and other deep difference backgrounds

I hope so. The actionable for HR to take the funds for college and current diversity programs and take it to middle schools. This will rock the boat but will provide last good. I feel having programs to gives specific group creates jealous and conflict. The better way is to give ethnic youths enough enough information and heads up that they will get themselves into good schools and jobs

@D1 There’s more factors at play than just hiring women and people of color. These people have the skills for the jobs so why shouldn’t they be considered? These diversity programs aren’t hiring random people from fucking McDonald’s for god sakes.

My best friend & I got pregnant around the same time. We didn’t know the other was even trying - just a happy surprise. But now I am going through a miscarriage and I don’t know how to feel. Lots of jealousy, but I’m still so happy for them. I knew it was a possibility (1/4 pregnancies end in miscarriage) but why did it have to be me? I don’t want to go to her gender reveal next week, it’s still just so painful but I feel like a horrible person for harboring these negative feelings towards her.
