Mark yourself as African American. No one looks at those things really, and even if they do just say that your South African.

You're allowed to "self-identify".

Native American. If it's good enough for Elizabeth Warren…

I always always lie. Always. And I make sure to switch it up if I get more than one. If they ask for sexuality I get very creative.

If you don't fill anything out, the employer is required to make a "best guess observation."

Put down something that you could be. It'll fuck that equal opportunity profiling shit. Maybe not a lot but still.

Ugh. I fear this type of thing as well. I have direct Caribbean ancestry, but it's not the Caribbean they are thinking of when they have that option. Lol. So, could mark it even though they'd look at me sideways for doing so. It's a joke that my heritage is that, but they likely would never in a million years know. (And may even reject that if I mark it.)

African American identifying as female (lesbian of course). That's the correct answer.

ps do they have room to specify a religion too? this one should be obvious too :-)

You should have an option for "decline to answer."

If you don't, then just return it blank.

If you want to advance your career, find a way to make yourself indispensable to your business unit.

They specifically say they are required to identify based on sight if we leave it blank and I look white. As I said there is no decline option; I checked

If you want coaching, select hispanic, and lie and say your grandmother is hispanic yadda yadda yadda.

If you don't want coaching (I wouldn't), then just decline to answer and let them fill in white for you.

Again, the way to secure your career is to make yourself indespensible, then signal that you are willing to leave.
