Also, using this as an opportunity to vent. If my boss was a CEO or COO, I’d be fine and saw it as an opportunity to educate. But my boss is a global head of hr, and it’s their job to educate CEO and COO.

First, I'm sorry. I'm sorry you experienced that, and I'm sorry that this racism disguised as "diversity" still exists anywhere, let alone with the global head of hr, who has created an unsafe workspace. All lives can't matter until Black lives do. Second, I'm happy to keep my eyes and ears open; are you looking for something remote, or specific location(s)? Any particular industries?

It sounds like there is more to the story. I can’t imagine a single comment has you ready to endeavor a switch. I’m not discounting the comment or what can hopefully be described as ignorance when coming from a global head of HR at such a time as this. I also acknowledge that managing up is likely one of the hardest conversations we have. Deploy massive empathy and seek to understand while remaining respectful and sharing insight and education privately with this person. Maybe it was a thoughtless comment shared in frustration and not really a glimpse into this person’s core beliefs. It could likely be one of the most crucial conversations of your career if successful shifting their paradigm just a bit would mean a more positive impact on this person’s influence on the organization. Lots of opportunity here short if pulling chocks and finding a new role. Best of luck to you.

No, it’s pretty much the whole story. We just never had a convo about her specific stance on DEI before (we‘be been working together for 7 years). We have a friendly work environment, and she let me implement strong investigation practices and a female leadership initiative (in fairness PR supported me, so it was more like a performative effort I used to implement non-performative actions). However, due to the latest events I came to her with ideas on how we can enhance our DEI initiatives and establish stronger inclusion and belonging agenda across the company. And she said “We’re not gonna do that, because at our opinion, not only black lives matter, but all lives matter. We hire people based on professionalism, and not on their minority status.” And so I just estimated that it’s going to take me another year to manage up, educate and convince her, and I won’t really have any personal development through that year. I don’t think it’s worth it.

*Advice* I recently accepted position at a 50K pay cut (covid). I shared my target salary /lateral move & at the negotiation point, they came up slightly by way of qtrly bonus structure but also outlined path for growth incl. expected salary increases at said points. Said it could be achieved in under a year. By day 4 of the new job they had accelerated to the final point in that plan without making good on title / salary. Spoke up immediately... “in discussion” 2 weeks in. Bait/switch WWUD??
