Real talk: I’m part of an affinity bar association and we have weekly happy hours. There’s a white dude (who is a partner at his firm) who always shows up. I guess he’s an “ally” but I feel like I can’t be candid about some things because he’s there. Also, at my firm we have a diversity retreat and recently this white associate complained she couldn’t participate. Thoughts?
Has anyone bought/ done the HRCI Certificate in Diversity and Inclusion in HR Management? I already have my PHR, but I’m looking to gain more knowledge/skills and beef up my resume. Is it worth doing? The course is $239 and you get 12 Recert credits with it.
Why are town Hall meetings so impersonal? They are all about awards / the number of people hired. I know FCB health is large, but we never hear from people who aren’t Executives. Last town hall, when discussing inclusion efforts, there were no people of color represented and one of the 4 pillars of diversity was centered around our “reputation as an organization” (that really rubbed me the wrong way). At my last agency those conversations were always led by people of color from every level.
Does anyone talk about economic diversity? You know middle class and economically challenged people who cannot afford art schools and expensive private colleges?
Hello everyone, Please be patient with me as this is my first post and it might be long. Apologies in advance. Ok. I currently work for a company where I feel as if I am there to help them meet "diversity" numbers. I am wanting to side step into UX design, however, my company doesn't offer any UX positions and now I am looking elsewhere. I went through a boot camp during quarantine and have been trying to build more of my skills in my off time in my current job. I am curious to know, for whoever
After 3 years, my partners and I are sunsetting our side project. It started with a brief we got at work. But we wanted to do more. So we made Secret Code to help eliminate the gender gap in tech.
Some companies are not taking diversity beyond cosmetics and do not seem to be committed to equity and inclusion. Exhibit A: The credentials of some of the recently hired DEI “executives”. Exhibit B: Average tenure of said executives tend to be about 12 months. And parting tends not to be amicable.

Hello! It seems this bowl is not very active but I'd like it to be. So here's my story: Born & raised in PR, moved to CA for undergrad & have been here since then. I graduated from law school in 2019, followed by a 2 yr bk clerkship. I did the evening program. I really enjoyed law school, in spite of the microaggressions, the late nights, & crazy competition. Love all things diversity in the law. Anyway, currently looking for a position in NYC/DC area. 🤗

Trying to settle a debate here between two juniors that I recently befriended who appear to be struggling with imposter syndrome due to starting remotely: First, once you’re at a Big Law firm (assume Vault 50) , do colleagues care about or go out of their way to check your law school academic honors and accolades? Second, once at a Big Law firm (again assuming Vault 50) do law school academic honors and accolades have any impact on partnership prospects within that same firm?
