Would the country be where it is today, (gun violence, rampant discrimination etc) if diversity & inclusion had been valued sooner, especially in the corporate arena?

Yes. There is no American capitalism without structural and systemic racism. DEI could never have undone the vestiges of slavery and sexism, even if you somehow figured out a way to go back in time and introduce DEI to the Dutch East India Company in 1789


It's really hard to say. People's values change over time and new contentious matters tend to pop up.

I'm from Baltimore, and lately, we have had a crazy buying spree, I mean I have sold the same property 2 times in less than 2 weeks, and the person who bought it immediately put it on the market and made an average of $25k in less than 5 days. Many reports show that investing in Baltimore and Philadelphia is the future, I don't doubt it. What is the fastest you have ever resold a property?

Hey everyone!

I’m in the process of applying for new jobs and I’m a bit confused as to what to expect for a salary. I work in architecture and am considèrent a recent grad (0-3 years of exp.) but for the past year I have been working as a project manager but not getting project manager pay because I technically don’t have the years of experience for the title.

As I’m applying for new jobs I’m struggling to reconcile the difference between my experience and years post grad.

Any advice?

What do you think are the chances this thing actually goes through? As of today they're still blocking it. It's paused which is fine, but if they don't actually forgive them after February I'll be pissed.


I am an in house paralegal who works for a team where leadership only hold their productive above and beyond workers accountable and turns the the other way for the low performers. In fact some of the low performers have been awarded with raises and promotions. As they say… nothing will kill a great employee faster than watching you tolerate a bad one. Anyone else experiencing this?

Do you think diversity training actually works? I can't tell if it's just a way to tick a liability box or if it's actually effective.


If you were starting a mid-sized company of your own, what would be your top diversity & inclusion goals to realize by the end of your 2nd year? I work for a friends start up and have next to no experience, trying to not screw up too badly.


“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.

Hi all,

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 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.

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?


Would love to know if anyone has any ERG/BRG resources that have worked for them!


I'm in desperate need of tips to get genuine buy in from our predominantly white, male senior leadership to create a more inclusive environment. As is often the case, middle management and below is very diverse and then at Director+ it gets much more homogeneous. So far any real initiatives get shot down in favor of performative actions to post on SM. Is this just how it is, or can we try something different?


Hey! I created a bowl for DEIB practitioners and employers/hiring managers who need contractors or candidates .


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?
