Working at a company and they can’t seem to hold on to their female, black and people of color employees. I blinked and 3 of the people who were in my onboarding class were either fired or they left. For context I’ve been in company less than a year and there are people who have been in the company 25yrs. I’m thinking of cutting loose before it gets to my turn.

I think you’re right to depart. Black people are canaries in the coal mine when it comes to company culture and the future outlook of a company.

What’s the best way to start diversifying a company culture and staff? I am a new TA with a company that is not that diverse, one of my goals is to change that. Being new, I am in the spotlight to start making these changes with the candidates I recruit. We get negative reviews on job boards from internal employees regarding lack of diversity. Yet, when we create DEI round tables and open the floor for dialogue and suggestions…crickets. As a recruiter who has no control over the company budget, marketing, creating overnight change in someone else’s mind…where do you suggest I start? Sourcing through diversity affiliations, networking, asking for referrals, tending to diverse candidate applications first, this is all basic recruiting 101; what do you suggest I can do as an individual? LinkedIn has an article regarding diversity recruiting - one of the suggestions - look up “most popular African American female names for 1990” and use these names as part of your keyword search. What can I as an individual do that makes an immediate difference?

Cutting loose will add to the lack of diversity in the company. Obviously if you feel uncomfortable you should do what’s right for you. Maybe those employees felt the lack of diversity was something they weren’t comfortable with and used that as a reason to leave?

Do you have reason to believe it's a company culture problem in general? Hard to say what's going on based on this, though obviously it doesn't look great

It’s the fabric of their culture because there aren’t enough POCs and black people in higher management from what I see.

My bf works in one of the teams we're auditing. It's an extremely high visibility client, so I don't want to risk telling someone. It would absolutely be a career-limiting move to get kicked (cont.)

I feel like my work place is either discriminating against me or has me on a list to get rid of. At the expense of coming across as a jerk I stand up for myself at work and I'm not afraid of telling my work place no. Which is one reason I feel I'm on a list that my upper management doesn't like. I don't go out of my way to be a jerk but I know my rights as an employee and my work place doesn't like that. They won't let me promote but let people I've trained get promoted.
