thoughts on this inclusion thing? As a minority it seems to be a publicity stunt... for the pictures and social media posts... Just confused about why we are still talking about what needs to get done

Publicity stunt for sure,
I also think that lots of people are looking for advantage because being a minority.... And trust me I am a minority, never felt discriminated by any other than my own minority. It is ridiculous but it is like that.
Being a minority isn't being a handicaped (with all the due respect to the handicapped people)

I'm trying to get my male director to see the importance of diversity on a team, however I'm flopping. And now I hear that 2 out of 4 of us women on my team are thinking of leaving mostly because of his ignorant attitude towards diversity and inclusion efforts (more notably, though, sexist prejudice). Is this something you can teach someone, or will I just continue to see the team bring on more and more white male colleagues until I'm snuffed out myself?

I love my job and the people I work with, but there’s one thing that really bothers me: the lack of diversity. Sometimes when I walk into the office and see everyone else around me as the only POC, it feels kind of weird. I don’t think anyone here has ever said anything racist or sexist to me personally, but I don’t feel comfortable talking about these issues with anyone because they might take it personally and then things could get awkward between us.

I’m an introvert in consulting. I get along well with my teams but have found that when projects get busy my social battery plummets and I have zero motivation to network and meet new people. I’ve received feedback that Im doing great work I just need to ‘talk myself up more’ and promote myself. I love the diversity of consulting but I know you can only go so far before your role basically just turns into sales.
Are there any introverts that have gone the distance in consulting? Any advice?
