They went from "we're actively searching for diverse candidates who represent our commitment to inclusivity" to "our team would like to see more examples of your past work to show how you'll fit into our workflow" ....with mass layoffs in between.
Oh, for sure. That was a 2020 thing. Everything they promised, they never followed through with. That means that they don鈥檛 need to hire consultants to help them implement programs they never intended to make reality anyway.
In reply to @DoctorJonPaul
Yep. And the ones staffed are being laid off and the programs underfunded and no real work gets done. Surprised? No.
In reply to @DoctorJonPaul
I'm still recruiting for them on the regular in govt but they usually want background in govt even though people with that experience are avoiding DEI positions
In reply to @DoctorJonPaul
I鈥檝e applied to several dozen job openings but im just not getting interviews.
The 2020 corporate fad of addressing racism is fading..
Yeah I have witness two dismissals of really good people and departments

that were not only unnecessary but wrong. Just waiting for safe landings so I can be real loud & boughetto about it.
In reply to @DoctorJonPaul
As a scholar in the area of race and religion, it's very noteworthy how few jobs in this and related areas there are in this job cycle compared to the last job cycle (post-2020 budgets). The DEI money they were able to pull together in 2020 dried up.
Very much this馃憞馃徔

And if DEI work is done in reaction to blatantly racist acts like the public execution of George Floyd, we鈥檒l never get to a place of implementing solutions to PREVENT the next tragedy. We鈥檒l just keep circling around the problem as we鈥檝e been doing for decades.
They gonna be even drier in about 3 months lol.

These Allyships starting to show their true colors.
The only sector still pretending to care is Academia.
In reply to @DoctorJonPaul
Unfortunately! And it鈥檚 not even surprising. Most of the companies creating those roles never truly valued that work anyway
In reply to @DoctorJonPaul
They rarely do any good anyways.. just superficial movement or awareness, no rooted equity or liberation..
In reply to @DoctorJonPaul
Cause folks truly don't care for DEI.
yeah i dont think they care about looking good anymore.
I mean we knew this would happen. It was a fad to some companies and orgs in the wake of George Floyd's murder. Those with real commitment will carry on with the work. Others will fizzle out because they didn't really care in the first place. #DEI #DEIA

University of South Florida just announced we're hiring a VP if you know anyone.
In reply to @DoctorJonPaul
I鈥檓 seeing lay-offs, closing open job reqs, and changing the role from Director to specialist. Implementation of goals went out the window with inflation. I feel like it got too uncomfortable so orgs called it 鈥済ood enough.鈥 It鈥檚 not good enough.
It was always a performance
In reply to @DoctorJonPaul
I saw the end at the beginning. We always knew what that was.
In reply to @DoctorJonPaul
the company I was at laid the whole team off in their last round after claiming DEI was one of their core values
In reply to @DoctorJonPaul
I never understood DEI jobs anyway. It never sounded sincere to me.
it was never gonna last
less sure these jobs are "drying up" rather than they're at a saturation point. companies, institutions, etc, have seemingly reached a point where they have comfortably relegated dei to hr, which is really what most of it ever was anyway. lots of thoughts & vibes with no teeth.
In reply to @DoctorJonPaul
Good riddance. DEI is such a laughable role
In reply to @DoctorJonPaul
Macroeconomic conditions = cut all non-essential functions
The pretense few months are over. 鉂わ笍馃
On another note, y'all were getting jobs??? Lol, the best the liberals here could offer was a part-time 鉁笍volunteer鉁笍 position with the (potential) to get a full-fledged position later on.
This is indeed trending and disturbingly so.
The performance ended鈥he illusion of inclusion.
Ay no shade to this person but

This reminds me of that Ghaisguevara @GhaisGuevara lyric in "Patrisse Cullors stole my lunch money"

'What do you mean that
Because of your color of skin that
They didn't reserve you a spot'
In reply to @DoctorJonPaul
I don鈥檛 believe companies ever wanted people in those positions who actually cared anyway. They wanted to look as if they cared.
if you鈥檝e had these jobs you know they were dry from the jump
Is there a partial silver lining that folks are staying in those positions? Or are companies really just doing away with it
Yup, and now I鈥檓 in constant fear that if my job has layoffs my team is the first to go.
In reply to @DoctorJonPaul
It鈥檚 frustrating.
In reply to @DoctorJonPaul
You aren鈥檛. They. Are erasing the dei for 鈥榖elonging鈥 or just feelings.
In reply to @DoctorJonPaul
Mine was over in 2009. So I understand
Reading this 馃У as as a worker鈥檚 lawyer.
Yup. All of this.
Literally why I鈥檓 looking for a job in a new field cause I know my days are numbered 馃様
It鈥檒l be clear next year who prioritizes a diverse workforce, diverse projects and diverse voices.

We鈥檙e eager to read and assess the data from the massive layoffs this year 鈥 I鈥檓 sure it鈥檚 telling.
In reply to @DoctorJonPaul
First roles to go in down markets / when things get tight
In reply to @DoctorJonPaul
Yes. Guess we need another tragedy to be back on top of the priority list.
In reply to @DoctorJonPaul
Yep. Just fading away into the abyss..
In reply to @DoctorJonPaul
I mean, if folks can鈥檛 even mask to protect the immunocompromised, doing actual work towards equity & inclusion isn鈥檛 gonna happen. All the bullshit lip service has faded away. But, just like COVID, DEI still matters and we need it badly. 馃様
Lol as a recently laid off DEI professional I can attest to this
In reply to @DoctorJonPaul
sometimes you gotta stand your ground and let that nigga say yes
