We had a staff meeting at work the other day.
We all gathered in a large conference room so that we could eat lunch during the meeting.
The meeting was conducted by the CEO and the joint venture partners. As they reviewed the forecast numbers for the year, I paused for a second and scanned the room.
There were 33 people in the room.
13 white men
13 white women
3 asian women
3 black women
1 black man
I had to ask myself...is this really diversity?
I'm happy to be in the room but how far do we have to go??
