One thought on “Multiculturalism and Diversity

  1. Excellent reply by Saeed to the question. Implementing ACTUAL diversity, rather than the mere appearance of accepting diversity. This is important to both conservative and liberal viewpoints.
    While it is laudable that organizations are more inclusive of diverse people in terms of placing them in visible positions, it is more important that the people be competent, and not just “trophy divergentia “. The best person for the job, is the best person for the job. It is also important that these people be involved in positions of policy making, and not merely window dressing for getting the vote. Real diversity, and practical diversity.
