1 in 6 Hiring Managers Have Been Told to Stop Hiring White Men
- 48% have been asked to prioritize diversity over qualifications
I can confirm some of the hiring, promotion, and retention bias from talking to recruiters and from paying attention to what HR Karens say when they don’t know anyone’s listening.
No doubt lawsuits and civil rights claims will be coming, but I have another idea:
If corporate policy is to hire based on skin color or genitalia rather than by qualifications, doesn’t that mean that productivity must be lower? Doesn’t it then follow that profits and therefore shareholder dividends will be lower? Therefore, couldn’t shareholders file a lawsuit against the directors or the executives?
It depends on where the corporation is chartered, if in Delaware – where most corps are chartered – the Chancery Court is pretty hostile to shareholders’ derivative lawsuits.
