    ...About Diversity Hiring Practices?

    Transcript available here

    Our conversation is inspired by this twitter thread by @GergelyOrosz. We talk about the catch-22 that comes with doing DEI work - even when it's rooted in good intentions, and how misogyny runs so deeply in workplace culture.

    ...Why DEI is a Scam?

    Transcript available here.

    We're back again on our frustrated rants talking about DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) and how often various efforts under this umbrella mean well, but do nothing if not actively put more work on vulnerable workers.
