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.

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

Ask a Manager

Recently, we started a social media campaign to show all the amazing things our coworkers do outside of the office — side businesses, hobbies, etc. This was also promoted on social media. As a whole, our organization has a diversity problem. When I can contribute, I have tried to show diversity in our work because I think it’s the right thing to do and it makes us more appealing to a broader section of clients and potential employees.
