…kplace and in customer service. Workplace diversity is a sham. I have always felt that way about it. A corporation having a diverse staff and saying because you do your business can’t possibly be racist is like putting a lipstick on a pig, calling it a dog and expecting it to bark.
Clearly, once you have gone through the interview process where they would eliminate any possibility that the candidate would be anywhere close to being like you or me in terms of sheer awareness, then the indoctrination and inculcating process would have already taken place to pattern your behavior and acquiescence to corporate culture.
The pay — no matter how underpaid or sufficiently compensated —which has you signing the arbitration/at-will/employment contract ensures that employee is subject to the whims and contradictions of that corporate culture. But for the diversity and inclusion days or timed events at work like pot-luck or heritage shares which are suppose to happen inherently, you essentially give up aspects of your own identity or worse your bill of rights.
We can and should go on and on about this because the only materials on this topic are based on a white framing or false narrative about said corporate culture.
