Meh. As a female minority hire I am just over this whole thing. You guys do so much to get us in but absolutely nothing to actually help us integrate or be successful. And no this isn’t an endorsement for more inclusivity townhalls

Who all qualify in female minority?

This is why I keep saying we should implement some type of blockchain technology that gives every candidate a unique identifier. Remove the sex/gender, race out of the equation and only interview those who actually meet the requirements.

I like the idea but maybe after we fix systemic racism and ensure a level playing field for every individual to set themselves up for success

I’d lawyer up, particularly if you’re male. This is clear racial and gender discrimination.

Have some foresight here, and don't get caught on the wrong (yes, wrong) side of a culture war.

First, do you want to be known as the guy who sued his way into a job? Your lawsuit will be a matter of public record. And, beyond that, do you want to be known as the guy who sued a company for wanting to do better on gender and minority balance but was just sloppy in how they said so? There is a bigger picture here -- and the story isn't over anyway! You may yet get a positive reply to your last message....

Seeing this makes me feel like I’m the token hire lol. I’m a female minority and I never thought I deserve this job. Maybe I’m here for the diversity numbers lol

Thank you

Pretty sure this was posted before and the response was that they have hiring for everyone, but this was a specific subset program for women/minorities. Anyone not a women/minority still had opportunities to apply. Which, people may still have issues with, but it’s not as extreme as this post, which is clearly intended just to rile people up.

I’m hopeful that some of the 11k+ people in this bowl can lend me some insight. 🙏

I’ve been in hot pursuit of a role in PM, assistant, junior, coordinator, producer. If it smells like PM I’ve been after it. I feel as though I’m consistently pushed towards a sales-ish role by recruiters “to gain experience” in a company so that I can move into a PM role for them. Is this a flat out lie? Are there any PMs here that had to embrace the suck of a cold call role before they could have the goal job? 😟
