What Diversity Really Means

Water Cooler Wisdom

Lighthouse Research  Principal Analyst  Ben Eubanks  hammered home the importance of culturally embedded diversity and inclusion practices. According to Deloitte, employees that rated their employers highly for both  diversity and inclusion were 80 percent more likely to say their organization was high performing. Corporate boards with three or more women have 50 percent higher return on equity, and 40 percent higher return on sales.

VP of Equality Is The Rationalized Replacement for VP of Diversity at Salesforce.

The HR Capitalist

Take a look, interesting stuff from Salesforce as they seek to change the narrative from Diversity to Equality. There’s a lot of companies across America that struggle with Diversity hiring. They’re under-utilized in multiple job families, and even as they try to attract diverse talent, it hasn’t gone great. Throw in the fact that you can’t pay new hires anything they want without messing up your comp equity, and most companies don’t make the progress they’d like to.

Workology

In this post I’ll direct your attention to sessions on diversity that offer practical advice for diversifying your workforce, or that get at the fundamental barriers that get in the way of creating more equitable and diverse workplaces. Creating more diverse teams requires more than setting up and maintaining a diversity program ( itself a bigger challenge than it might at first seem ). Synthesizing Diversity and Inclusion: A Critical Business Imperative.

my employer says they’re committed to diversity — how can I hold them to accountable to that?

Ask a Manager

A reader writes: As a white woman working in a company that is not very diverse, I’d like to speak up and hold the company to account over their commitment to diversity. We do use diverse models in our marketing communications, but it seems to me that that’s as far as their commitment to diversity goes. I plan to write to HR to ask about our current data on employee diversity, and what action we intend to take beyond sharing the post on social media.

Friday Five: Tech, HR Tech and a Good Night’s Sleep

Workology

I’m not much for market watching, myself, so I’ve gathered a handful of links on the related story that’s more interesting to me: diversity in tech. A new study says that women are particularly averse to working at tech startups, citing obvious and more subtle sexism, and the cultural bias against, well, having a life outside the company.

Are Women Catching Up To Men? Not Exactly.

Water Cooler Wisdom

Catalyst research also showed that gender diversity in the boardroom correlates with better corporate performance – by a huge margin.    Companies with three or more women board directors in four of five years, on average, outperformed companies with zero women board directors by 84 percent return on sales, 60 percent return on invested capital, and 46 percent return on equity.

I don’t want to bring my “whole self” to work

Ask a Manager

However, I’m not sure about the catchphrase that many people (though not the ones in HR) use to describe the ideal culture they want to create, one in which we all “bring our whole selves to work.”

Investment Banking Business Model and Financial Stability

Imarticus Learning

Financial modeling helps investment bankers in equity research and credit ratings. By changing the internal culture and hierarchy, sometimes a lot can be achieved. They are diverse and heavily layered, which increases the complexity of regulation. Investment banking is the clear winner when it comes to advisory and mediation roles. It takes care of investing from end to end, by assessing the risk and evaluating the flow of credit.

should I ask my employer to take down a Blue Lives Matter flag?

Ask a Manager

As a whole, our organization has a diversity problem. When I have brought up issues of diversity and inclusion in the past, I have been told that our clients are overwhelmingly white and conservative, and we need to make them comfortable (I don’t think that assessment is strictly true, for what it’s worth). You can point out the organization already has a diversity problem, and this will reinforce and worsen it.

When Leaving Your Job, How to Take Your Colleagues With You

Martina’s job was to create a “culture of innovation,” to the benefit of all, which she did with passion and success. She wondered if she could do what she now did, but as an independent consultant working for many different companies to help each one of them create a “culture of innovation.” There are myriad ways to offer “equity,” from partnership to stock ownership to “your name on the door.” The sweet siren song of equity cannot be underestimated.

my mom is my HR manager and it’s not good, I walked in on my boss crying, and more

Ask a Manager

Is it okay to care about diversity in company website photos? Things have improved but there is still a real problem of not understanding diverse populations and ignoring diversity issues when hiring. A company could have demographically diverse photos, and even a demographically diverse staff, and still have serious equity and inclusion issues in how things play out internally. One very good sign, though, is if their leadership ranks are diverse.).

CEO assigns work to my staff without telling me, vandalized posters, and more

Ask a Manager

Our equity posters were vandalized. I work as the equality and diversity manager of a research institute with about 350 people. But you also should take it as a sign that at least one person employed there is very unclear on the organization’s values (and if that person is, possibly more are), and that you have some serious educating to do on things like why affinity groups for historically marginalized populations are part of equity work, not at odds with it.

Frugality is a career tool | Penelope Trunk's Brazen Careerist

Penelope Trunk

The most productive people in the world seem to be the most diverse and balanced. Rarely is the unhappily pervasive priority of "keeping up with the Joneses", which I believe fuels most consumer spending in our culture, as fulfilling as the majority of Westerners seem to think, and it certainly, paradoxically, commits one to rather un-fulfilling work, lots of it, in order to pay the bills.

Most homeowner's wish to do this, real homeowner's, not those buying with no equity. The first thing about understanding another culture is understanding that understanding takes time.
