Genuine question. If it’s to attract and hire more diverse pool of candidates, isn’t that a head of recruitment’s job? What do they do really?

- Intel tu_madreShield company from SJW lawsuits, signal SJW virtues, and trash white and Asian male resumes. And in my company, give BJs to the CEO then with the board's help, move to become Google's VP of Diversity when the CEO's wife goes apeshit at the HQ. Usually the role is given to older African American females (the only demographic "more oppressed" would be an older LGBT African American female -- paging Wanda Sykes), but in my company's special case, it was given to a young-ish white female. The CEO's 🍆 was a big decision maker.
- Crafts policy to try ensure that the makeup of a company isn't just a blinkered monoculture of white dudes like it is on Blind.
- Northrop Grumman karoshi_Make sure that hetero, middle age, white males are excluded and punished whenever possible for their crime of existing
- Given all the cynical and negative responses on here no wonder this position exists. If you all tried a little harder to be inclusive maybe it wouldn't be necessary.
- I have been promoted; now I get to see how the process really works. It is overt discrimination against white/Asian males in the effort to hit diversity numbers. If you substituted in “black” or “female” in the conversations when white/Asian males are used during the hiring process, the company would be fined tens of millions.
- @lup must be that. They're probably posting online like @Intel about how all immigrants should be deported and how encouraging diversity and inclusion in a workplace is a personal attack and pretend hardship on them even though they've "been promoted". If so fair enough, fuck them.
- Pivotal / Eng PearlMilkTI’ve noticed a lot of them are more figurehead representations of diversity - some companies appoint clueless people to this role, others appoint people with more academic backgrounds in diversity. Potentially (and ideally) the Head of Diversity would understand research regarding not only hiring, but sustaining employees happiness via diversity groups, attend a lot of conferences, and overall improve the image of the company. E.g., trendy and diverse versus old and white. I’ve also seen them act as a pseudo-Legal clearer for marketing departments.
