I live in Canada, not the USA or my solution would be easier.
Here is Canada the Wokeness is dialed up 10x what it is in the USA.
I work for a big bank and all the entire finance industry is the same right now. I am bombarded daily with Woke Bullshit and the Career Progression in the industry is entirely dominated by POCs + Women. White men have to work 10x as hard as POCs and Women to get anywhere in this industry.
The front pages of my work literally has tons of shit about LGBTQ+, Trans, Anti-Racism, Diversity and Inclusion. There's literally a whole page dedicated to ending Black Oppression Worldwide with a Giant Picture of George Floyd that has been stylized to give it an LGBTQ+ Colours flair. It's all women and POCs everywhere.
My bosses are women. My bosses bosses are women. My bosses bosses bosses are women. The last 11 promotions or new hires in my office have been Women or POCs.
I am just getting absolutely fedup. I am 1000x more qualified and competent than anyone getting anywhere in this industry but I am getting no where and it's entirely because of these modern politics.
I do not feel motivated to work at all anymore in this industry or work environment and need out. What should I do?
I'm been here for the last near decade and it's pretty much all I know. It wasn't this bad 7 years ago but it's just dialed into overdrive now and it's impacting my performance at work. Every time I work toward something and see someone undeserving get it simply because they were a woman or POC it kills my motivation. At first, I thought I could just work harder and deal with it but it has gotten to a point where it literally is depressing me and I see all the shit constantly promoted in my work all the time that it's just too offensive for me to handle.
My boss even puts their pronouns in their email signature and encourages everyone to do the same to support solidarity with the non-binary community. We have a monthly meeting on how Diversity and Inclusion impacts us.
I can't do it anymore.
The problem is that the entire finance industry in Canada seems to be going this direction and besides some small boutiques that are impossible to get jobs with, everyone is pretty much fucked. I honestly want to just go back and do a trade or something but I'm no good with my hands and never have been. It'd be literally starting all over again and I'm not sure what I should be doing.
I've tried applying to jobs out of the country but I've got no where with that. All the kinds of companies I'd want to work for probably don't hire immigrants much.
Edit - Just after I made this post, my bank sent out a bank wide email discussing the horrors of the impacts of our history's Euro-Canadian and Christian Indoctrination of people and how it has led to more deaths than the number of POWs killed by Nazi Germany. Yes my bank literally sent an email like this out. I can't fucking take it.
