Booz Allen peeps: I referred someone to Booz last year while I was employed there. The person had to wait for his polygraph before he could start at the firm. He finally started last week. Cont...
I found one of my coworker's anonymous Twitter accounts, and it has a ton of red flags involving bigotry, sexism, etc. It's a personal account, so should I mention it to HR or not?
Has anyone else ever dated a coworker?

I am the only immigrant with an accent in my office and it’s almost a daily thing now that my bosses/coworkers would explain terms to me that I already know. I’d often freeze when they do that because my first reaction is always confused. How do you talk about it with them after the fact especially when it seems like it’s not a big deal to them?

God imagine working DEI at Twitter 😂😅
I'm dealing with some toxic masculinity at work from someone that works on my team. Does anyone have advice on constructive ways to address this type of behavior?
Shortly after George Floyd's death, this video commentary by Kimberly Jones went viral. As a white person, it's hard for me to watch because of its powerful raw truthfulness. But I think every white person should sit down and watch this video because it clearly explains the frustrations and fears of Black people as well as the BLM movement and the difference between protesting, rioting, and looting.
Just thought this to be very thought provoking, challenging some unconscious bias and stereotypes.
“I must honestly confess that I go through moments of disappointment when I have to recognize that there aren’t enough white persons in our country who are willing to cherish democratic principles over privilege. But I am grateful to God that some are left.” This quote is from MLK in 1968 about how he sensed the movement was losing the battle for the soul of the nation.
I’m trying to cultivate discussion oriented DEI spaces, any topical themes that would make fun and engaging discussions?
Does anyone have experience with starting a Business/Employee Resource Group? I would really like to start one for Middle Eastern and North Africans as my company does not have one. There are many discussions that could benefit others and opportunities for intersectionality here. TIA!
How do I transition from a Senior Executive Assistant role to Project Management? Ideally I would like to work in tech. How should I go about this? I currently work in the Real estate industry so it would be a totally new career path. The reason I want to move into tech is I feel like many of the companies I see have the same values as me (diversity & inclusion) and a good culture is so important to me.
My company has ERGs and one of them is pretty large and includes a lot of demographics. Within it, people are starting to kind of form their own subgroups (like based on office location or country-specific ethnicity). Does anyone have any thoughts around what would be appropriate for DEI practitioners to be aware of when serving these populations?
In honor of National Voter Registration Day, The New Yorker released the transcript of a previously unpublished interview with James Baldwin, who gave a first-hand account of "Freedom Day 1963," a Black voter-registration drive in Selma, Alabama. Baldwin's descriptions from that day are so vivid and detailed that you can feel the fear and anger of the event. If you have a couple of minutes, I highly recommend you read it.
How do you deal with your “mentor” being threatened by your performance and gatekeeping information from you? Then turning around and giving you shit for not knowing things… but they don’t tell you anything and there is no way for you to know. My learning and development is being hindered and I’ve felt this for a long time, but coworker just confirmed this is the case. Now that I know I’m not “crazy” for thinking this, how should I approach this?
Hey! I created a bowl for DEIB practitioners and employers/hiring managers who need contractors or candidates .
hi! I work for an early-stage Fintech startup called Fennel; (www.fennel.com) focused on impact investing as well as shareholder activism and giving every day investors the tools they need to make informed and aligned decisions. I'm wondering what people think of this space and about ESG, given that there has been a lot of relevant media attention recently & would love to know if people make investment decisions based on factors like workforce equity, ceo pay, etc?
My boss makes jokes about me being from a different country whenever there is a work meeting or a gathering with coworkers, even though he knows where I am from. This usually occurs when I meet new work-related people or for example if I am in a situation that involves ethnic related subjects.
What is this? This is normal?
The first time I ignored that, but now it has become a pattern and is bothering me now. I am south-American working in the UK.

In the US I’m not sure how the goal of not to exist would manifest within 5 years…We’re in 2022 and the majority of orgs are still at the awareness phase and see DEI as more of a compliance obligation vs. inherently changing systems and processes that make the workplace less equitable, particularly for minorities. Many companies are still focusing their efforts on surface level changes …mandatory training…cultural awareness programs and recruiting. I don’t know a company out there who is 5 years out from a DEI practitioners and leaders being obsolete.
There is no way DEI should ever not exist. I don't think - especially in this country - that we're going to wake up one day and no longer need to push for diversity and inclusion. Maybe in 50 years when most people are biracial, but even then gender, ableism, ageism, this industry isn't going anywhere.
That's a good question. IMO as long as racism and inequity exist, so will the need for DEI in the workplace.
Who’s getting promoted and who’s being considered for promotion. What is the makeup of senior and executive leadership. Pay audit. How your company is recruiting and interviewing (are your interviews consistent, are interviewees being asked the same questions, which candidates are being considered/ moved forward, etc.), what is the makeup of each team/ org/ company; in meetings, does everyone have a voice, does everyone feel safe to speak up
Those are a handful of examples where one can obtain data.
I would argue that even once goals are achieved DEI work will still be necessary. The social world the organization exists in is constantly changing and good DEI practitioners should be constantly changing their practices to keep up with (and make sure the organizations keeps up with) those shifting social dynamics.
Maybe in 50-100yrs it can shift to a COE with some overt roles in HR rather than independent depts. And then probably only in certain geographies and companies with matured capabilities and cultures.
Try to realize, too, that as far as it seems we've come in a few years, there is significant work left to do very much evident at a societal level. For perspective, look at any other country in Europe and Asia and see the issues with women, much less ethnic or racial diversity
Many organizations have had them in the 80s especially in the higher education sector. This is not new, just popularized post George Floyd.
