Learning what you don't like to do is as important, if not more, as learning what you do like to do.

(i.e. explore and learn new things as much as possible).

Raise your hand as much as you can to take on special projects. Be willing and eager to learn. And don’t get defensive when presented with critiques of your work, it’s an opportunity to learn from sometime who has been there before.

Hi folks, question on DEI

Context: my company at the csuite level is full of white men (and 1 female as CHRO).

I am in the DEI group that was formed to give more guidance to leadership. They are open but struggle to justify DEI (because all white, how can they know!)

How do I get them to understand that 1) representation is important, 2) white men from varying white dominant country =\= diverse, 3) their white struggle easy vs. minority , 4) diversity hiring will not make talent pool worse?
