Diversity just means less white people

Putting restrictions on the race and gender of those you hire necessarily shrinks your talent pool. It’s just simple math, people.

it's mandated by law to oppress the winners so the racist losers can win for once, even if it by making fair competition illegal. wonder (((who))) thought of this.

Expand your talent pool by hiring people based on their skin color! Man, these people are retarded.

Diversity isn’t that important in the workplace. People who work and want to work are important in the workplace.

There is nothing in Porten about diversity diversity comes on naturally but if you want to go by how nature treats diversity you’ll see that diversity does not exist in nature

So I should employ applicants based on race etc. rather than qualifications or skills ? You are obviously not a business owner, just a virtue signalling moron.

There is literally no gain for whites to "diversify".....only loss

Forced diversity, where diversity actually means fewer Whites males, replaces perceived discrimination against women and racial minorities with actual discrimination against White men and White people.

Europa Man It is an actual HR strategy, called affirmative action, or in Sociology, positive discrimination; favoring those who are generally discriminated against.

The absence of evidence supporting racial or sexual diversity is the proof that heaping together people with little in common is useful. They're talking about diversity of race, sex and sexual orientation, correct ?

HoffsTech  wrote "most toxic environments are the ones where there is no diversity" Working outside the US in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, Kenya or any Northern or Muslim European country that is nearly 100% ethnically homogenous is toxic ? Forced diversity, where diversity actually means fewer Whites males, replaces perceived discrimination against women and racial minorities with actual discrimination against White men and White people.

Yes, this video includes topics on diversity including race, sex, and sexual orientation. This discussion can also be applied to other types of diversity such as religious beliefs, disability, etc. I have worked in many environments and from my experience, the most toxic environments are the ones where there is no diversity.

Please use evidence. Not just opinions.

Differences of socio-economic backgrounds, ideas, beliefs, interests … don’t make us different. Race does. Hence why diversity in the work place is based on race and not all that other superficial crap. In other words, even if all the employees and students come from an the same upper middle class background, there is diversity because they look different. Anyone who thinks different is a racist.

No backing for anything said. Just opinion. Disappointing.

Robert Donkers Thank you for your feedback! We will keep it in mind for future videos.

Why is there diversity only in White peoples country? It is a code word for genocide of white people.
