Made You Look: Affirmative Action, Salary Transparency, Twitter Takeover

November 3, 2022
  • First: We’re breaking down the biggest headlines of the week: the Fed raising interest rates yet again, the growing risk of political violence leading up to election day, and Elon Musk’s chaotic onboarding @ Twitter.

  • Then: The Supreme Court heard two major cases on affirmative action this week. And according to analysts, the Supremes appear ready to reverse decades of precedent. We talk to an expert about what’s gone down in oral arguments so far, and what the impacts of an affirmative action reversal could look like.

  • Next: NYC’s new salary transparency law took effect this week, and it could have an impact far beyond the tri-state area. We’re talking to two experts about what’s changing for employees, employers, and those on the job hunt. And how you can take advantage of transparency laws, even if you don’t live in a place that has them.

  • Plus: In partnership with our friends at Slack, we're taking listeners behind the scenes of our digital HQ to show how certain Slack channels help us do our jobs better. Next up: #people-leaders.

  • Finally: The midterm elections are next week, and we’re handing the mic over to you to hear what’s on your mind as you get ready to vote.
