Out of curiosity, are diversity fairs like SEO? SEO characterizes itself as diversity and you can apply as a whatever but in the end, they mainly recruit AA.

If the interviewer asks, you just burst into tears and say, I can't believe you would ask that!

yeah, tons of white girls at diversity fairs.

i didn't see as many white guys, though.


LGBTs. Religious minorities sometimes, too. I know a lot of Jewish guys who went (and interviewing to NY, where being Jewish is not diversity).

Interviewers don't care, though.

Jews are over represented in every US legal market, even the ones with lower Jewish populations in general.
