So I've read quite a few comments regarding race based discrimination in the layoff process at EY and Deloitte. This can't possibly be true though right?

Not true

You’ll never really know but I noticed out of the black people I personally know, a larger percentage got let go. This is an anecdote though.

Personally don’t know a case, but wouldn’t be surprised if it existed. I know people of all color , races laid off On immigration, Trump has made H1B process extremely tough. I don’t know if companies are selectively firing H1Bs, but this admin is making it very hard for companies to retain them and extend visas.

It is true, they lay off Indians on visa first because they can’t fight back, I can’t comment on others but I have experienced this discrimination in every way

Everybody knows EY is a Red firm, atleast with the older partners.. they no like ppl of color, let alone immigrants unless u have some serious clout with the big dogs. Plus immigrants on visa are more expensive, and there u go, a perfect business case

The system at D is so layered and nuanced. So many soft things go into getting staffed and who your network is. Every person I know who was laid off fit into some category other than civilian white male. I think it goes to the root of larger D&I issues that the firm is very rightly trying to address.

Can you share the comments? I missed it.

Depends on what you choose to believe.

Why can’t it be true. Discrimination is definitely real.

Only the immigrants, so there’s been less outrage.

What’s POC anyway ?

How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible?
