So have any of the companies with layoffs acknowledged how it affects DEI efforts? Some execs at Meta acknowledged it a couple of months ago but didn't have any plans to remedy it. Is it safe to assume DEI is no longer a priority in our current economy?

(Asking as someone who benefited from these post-2020 efforts and hoped to pay it forward.)

The metrics used for lay offs are unknown and seemed to be product/function focused. I didn’t think it would have affected certain backgrounds more, what makes you think that?

Anecdotally, I knew quite a few people laid off with none of those patterns.

These sound anecdotal, but sad to hear nonetheless. I am a POC myself fyi as was my recruiter. Im not sure which geo you’re in, but I’m very surprised you have such a different experience than me on this (Im London based).

Said by an executive in Meta offline "We've hired Bain to do this. If you can see some pattern, then Bain is not doing their job. Bain made sure there's no visible pattern, and every pregnant case / pat leave case / disability case needs to be reviewed."

DEI is racism reincarnated. MLK would be horrified. People should be evaluated on their character and job performance, not the color of their skin or gender.
