Diversity and Inclusion

Jan 10 34 Comments

Why does C1 talk about Diversity & Inclusion, yet those at the top definitely do not reflect diversity. I am finding that there are very few women and people of color at the tops of various orgs. Have you found that CapitalOne all talk?

    Diversity and inclusion is BS at every company. Sure, they try to hire diversely at an entry/IC level, but they don't make the environments good enough for those people to stay. And they certainly don't actively care about diversity at higher levels.

    It’s check box activity. They don’t have diversity in C suite or even at executive level because of unconscious bias.

    Every company is this way.

    Look at it this way...if forcing diversity and inclusion was profitable, they would be doing it already, and there is no need to have the forced diversity.

      Nah, just the annoyance provoked by the loud and definitely not oppressed minority of people that made identity politics their own faith.

    Didn't know that companies should hire and promote people based on their color and genitalia rather then credentials. Thank you for making it clear to me that we need to preach Diversity god above all!

    On a serious note, execs today reflect the industry 20-25 years ago when most of them started. AFAIK Satya didn't start by handling thousands of employees under him and he worked at Microsoft since 1992 and at Sun prior to that. When you preach diversity above credentials you get Ginni Rometty (IBM), Marissa Meyer or Elizabeth Holmes. When the right person is at the right place because she is capable to lead you get Sheryl Sandberg.

    Maybe because they aren't qualified at all for those jobs? The most qualified person should be hired not just put a diversity hire in a position to make you feel better.

      Which minorities are prevented from learning which skills, exactly?

      Oh please thats just social justice drivel. Skillsets for jobs are basic standards that anybody of any race or sex can learn through life. If diversity hires didn't learn them they simply aren't qualified for the job, period. Fact of the matter is they made poor life decisions or had different goals in life and thus are not qualified so aren't hired. There is nothing racist, sexist, or any other absurd *ist about it.

    Funny slightly off-topic story -- I recently toured an all-girls private school for my daughter, the rankings say it's the #1 top all-girls school in the country. They had a very long presentation on diversity and inclusion, they pushed it VERY hard saying things like "students learn best when they're surrounded by people with different background and viewpoints. We need to value *EVERY* viewpoint, learn from *EVERY* perspective, celebrate *EVERY* difference, involve *EVERYONE* in our community. We want to invite people who are different than ourselves. "

    But I kept thinking -- this is an all-girls school! How can you claim you value "involving people who are different than ourselves" if you're deliberately excluding boys? Or is it just that some kinds of "diversity of thought" are good but other kinds are not worth having?

      Why would you put your child in an all girls school in the first place?

    Diversity is a trophy thing for capital one. They spend more money in advertising that they are diverse vs actually embracing jt.

    There is absolutely zero diversity of thoughts at capital one.
    It works in a certain way and everyone is expected to talk like a polished white male.

    IIRC FB has like only 40% of white males in leadership and considering US are about 85% white, that is not do bad.

    I will stick to my guns and demand for candidates to be evaluated only on relevant skills, not shallow genetic traits or sexual orientation, but I would like to know what all the supporters of this ideology think about garbage collection (the smelly, physical one), oil rigs or construction workers, where for example we have a glorious 0% female representation.

    Why the fight for "equality" I'd always only for the comfy, high-pay jobs in tech or politics?

    Also, what do we do with roles like nurses, HRs and teachers? Should we send home a good chunk of their 90% female workers and get more men there to balance an asymmetry that is more marked than the one in tech?
