Corporate Diversity Training Sessions Are Total B.S

If you work in a corporate environment, at some point you’ve been forced to endure a mandatory diversity training class. They’re inescapable at this point. Why does the diversity training industry even exist? In the 90’s and early 2000’s, discrimination lawsuits swept Wall Street and companies such as Merrill Lynch paid more than $500 million in class action settlements.

So in order to preempt lawsuits and create a more inclusive working environment, diversity training was introduced and “diversity” became an entire industry in itself. Now they are practically ubiquitous, even in some of the most so-called progressive institutions like universities and media companies.
