The trouble with diversity training? It’s complete hokum

Blind tests show that ‘unconscious bias’ against women and minorities does not exist

Is diversity training snake oil? According to its proponents, women and minorities are not competing with white men on a level playing field when it comes to career advancement because of the ‘unconscious bias’ of their white male colleagues. The solution, if you’re the CEO of a large company, is to pay a ‘diversity consultant’ to train your managers to recognise and eliminate this bias. In America, it’s an $8-billion-a-year industry, yet a recent study in Australia suggests that, whatever is holding back women and minorities, it isn’t unconscious bias.

    Is this where highly productive white men are forced to participate in crying on the job and birthday cake eating, while also taking dead cat bereavement and never staying late in order to bring their productivity down to female levels so everyone is equal?

    Diversity is complete BS and contrary to human nature, which is why is has to be marketed constantly, like Coke and other non-nutritious crap.

        I like the active ingredient well enough, but prefer coffee flavor.

    Diversity is a weasel-word, the battle cry for the leftists’ identity politics social engineering lust. Its modus operandi is the elevation of every identity group under the sun, at the expense of the majority. The correct term for this cancer is BALKANIZATION.

    Stephan Molyneau nails it on “diversity” – it means simply NON-WHITES.
    As further proof, even in the fantastically diverse region of Europe, the message to them is :We Need More Diversity”.

    They were foisting SHARP (sexual harassment and racial prejudice) training on us in the army 25 years ago. I never had to suffer through it but those who were were seriously insulted by the idea. Some I know actually stood up to the instructors and tole them they were full of crap.
