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.

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 ).

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.

Alleged Pay Discrimination at Google Makes Marc Benioff and Salesforce Look Amazing.

The HR Capitalist

Back in late 2015, I reported on proactive moves by Salesforce to do pay equity increases across its workforce to eliminate any and all gender pay issues, job by job. At the time, I thought the move was brilliant, as it changed the conversation about workforce diversity to one of workforce equality - an equal goal that once achieved, was bound to change the narrative related to how much slack the world was going to give Salesforce for having some work to do on the diversity front.

Why I started a company (and why more women should too)

Ms. Career Girl

It’s not just a matter of equity. When I was in college, I’d read about CEOs confidently stating that they didn’t hire for diversity because they hired for merit. n April of 2018 I quit my job to start a wedding tech company called Honeydew, with my friend Lucy. Before that, I had been fantasizing for years that I wanted to start my own company, even without a specific idea in mind. Here’s why: Solving an underserved pain point is motivational and profitable.

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.
