My employer has a ‘Diversity and Inclusion Programme’ underway right now in all the countries it operates in. So now there are new D&I newsletters hitting our inboxen and springing up on the intranet.
The interesting thing is that in other countries, affirmative action is demanded in the name of merit. In the Gulf countries, for example, female employees demand merit-based selection because they’re as good as the men, and it’s social discrimination which prevents their selection to higher posts, or indeed at all.
India seems to be the only place where merit-based selection is seen as anatagonistic to diversity.
