Asians don’t count as “diversity” in the modern work place. Asians are underdog minorities but are often seen as the invaders to compete against. So Asians study harder and it becomes a vicious cycle. White guy “those Asians keep taking jobs and are good at everything. They need less help. Let’s push them down” Asian guy “I need to work harder to get ahead because white people push us down. Let’s spend nights and weekends studying and working harder”

How could we tell you which firm has the best when we’ve only probably worked at 1-2? Also, agreed that we’re definitely not URM. Also happen to think diversity programs are pointless.

I’m part of our Asian Diversity Network and love it! Most of my close friends at work are in ADN. Varies office by office, but in my experience mostly social events at the office level, then more career-oriented and mentorship events at the system level, plus an annual conference for NAMR.

Did not hear about this at BCG... but I find it pretty doable at BCG - am currently a project leader on track to principal

With many others that I know of at the partner level

I have a controversial observation: Facebook seems to be using recruitment process managers to get diversity hires. I've looked at all the RPM hires over the past few years and every one of them seems to be a woman, most commonly a woman of color. I'm all for diversity, but this feels out of balance. Am I wrong?

I am currently unemployed but I am very curious about everyone’s company signature having she/her or he/him or they displayed. Are companies forcing people to write the pronouns you need to choose?

It seems political. What are your thoughts?
