Yesterday I was privileged to take part in a diversity counsel at work. I work for a major appliance company that is somewhat stuck in the good ole boy system. I happen to call it the machine. So we were invited to talk about diversity on Martin Luther King Jr.’s Birthday (a day which we NEVER get off). Our new CEO is a man of color so I guess he felt the need. Well, the panel or participants were mostly people who manage others and are persons of color as well. Most were African American, Latino and people of Indian (Hindustan) descent. The presentation was enlightening and I really hope that the company takes on a mindset that will allow us to diversify at all levels.
