Tech giants, like Google and Meta, have slashed diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) programs in 2023 despite their commitments following the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests and riots.

According to data provided by job site Indeed, cited by CNBC, DEI-related job postings in 2023 have declined 44%.

In November 2023, the last full month for which data was available, DEI job postings dropped 23% year over year.

Layoffs at Google and Meta also included employees who held leadership roles in Black employee resource groups (ERGs), CNBC said.

Devika Brij, CEO of Brij the Gap Consulting, which works with tech companies’ DEI efforts, told CNBC that some companies have cut nearly 90% of their DEI budget by midyear 2023.

“When George Floyd began to become the topic of conversations, companies and executives doubled down on their commitments and here we are only a couple years later, and folks are looking for opportunities to cut those teams,” Brij said.

Melinda Briana Epler, the founder and CEO of Empovia, said that the cuts in DEI in 2023 were “stark” compared to previous years.

“Whenever there is an economic downturn in tech, some of the first budgets that are cut are in DEI, but I don’t think we’ve seen such stark contrast as this year,” Epler told CNBC.

The layoffs come just three years following the boom in DEI initiatives that came during the Black Lives Matter protests and riots.

Google earnings call now for October-December 2023... they only beat Wall Street expectations by around 2.5% for earnings and revenue

Google is now down about 3.5% in after hours trading

Perhaps more job cuts announcements would help Google stock

So much for the economy doing really good according to the White House narrative...who they got as their economy minister ? James Carville ?

I like what I am hearing on the news that a vast majority of job growth is low paying jobs

UPS announced it is cutting 12,000 jobs (out of about 530,000 person workforce) this year and is requiring all workers to return to the office 5 days a week.

So much for the great economy narrative

They just negotiated $130K salaries for union drivers.

UPS is unionized, therefore hiring illegals instead of citizens for driver positions has no real benefit. I mean, sure, they can hire them, but they will still have to pay whatever was negotiated with the Teamsters.

James Carville ?

Stunning to think that he is less crazy than 90% of the media AND democratic staffers/appointees today.

Sounds like that's for admin jobs, not the drivers, who would have to come to the warehouse for their loads.

Yes, Carville does not completely believe his own bullshit. He just as loud and obnoxious as them also.

Thanks to a newly-enacted law last year, Florida’s public universities are slowly healing themselves of their racist Distractions, Errors, and Incompetence (DEI) departments. The latest this week was announced by Miami’s Florida International University which, Javier Milei-like, eliminated its DEI department:




I guess it’s spreading.

Still have to force colleges to get rid of subsidizing this on campus:

Valencia College (Orange County/Orland Com College) works closely with them

Peace and Justice always means BLM, DIE, Fannonism, etc.
