Trump's Win Is Making Tech Care More About Diversity - According To A New Survey

Yeah, seems like an alternative-universe headline, but a study conducted by Atlassian shows that of the 1,400 tech workers surveyed across the United States, forty-eight percent say they care more about diversity after the election. And forty-one percent even said they changed their workplace behavior as a result.


The study is fascinating and also points out what we're seeing more of at PowerToFly.com, the realization among employees that a “bottoms up approach" for improving diversity and inclusion at companies could be the way to finally move the needle. That means more employees want to get involved in making their companies less homogenous. At PowerToFly we recently submitted a panel to Grace Hopper around this very topic with the title “Everyone Can Build Inclusive Environments: How You Can Shape Diversity Initiatives No Matter Your Career Level”. Hopefully we're accepted and can widen the conversation, especially as it is top of mind for employees.

 

Read more of the survey here if you want to dig in.  And share our jobs from companies that are on PowerToFly because they care about creating environments were women can thrive.

How I Took Action Against Anti-Asian Racism– At Work and In My Personal Life

If you've been paying attention to the news recently, you likely have noticed a sharp rise in Anti-Asian racism. Members of the Asian-American and Pacific Islander communities have been vocal in bringing awareness to the heightened racial discrimination they have faced since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, which, in some cases, have had tragic consequences.

If you are not a member of the Asian-American community, you might feel powerless– as if you have no say in the matter. It's easy to believe that your actions aren't effective and cannot lend support to your colleagues and friends from the Asian-American community. But that is not the case– in reality, there are a number of actions you can take against Asian hate that can have real impact, in both your professional and personal life.

Experience is the greatest teacher, and the experience of being a mom is particularly chock-full of learning opportunities.

We know from the examples set by our coworkers and friends just how good moms are at juggling competing responsibilities and priorities. ("If you want to make sure something gets done, give it to a busy person" would be even more accurate if it was changed to "give it to a working mom.")
