Re: Typical attitude from the unoppressed...

I recently departed from a very large global American banks. One of the ones you'd have heard of, The effort put into diversity, with internal support groups for women, BME and LGBT staff was really significant; it was a management appraisal criteria, an d senior management spent a lot of time takling about it. It wasn't just talk. Pretty sure the others take similar attitude. You can see for yourself if you take a trip to Canary Wharf and lig about Canada Place people watching for a while. Now whatever else global megabanks are, warm-hearted charitable organisations ain't one of them They do stuff like that out of self-interest. Having people from many different backgrounds contributing to teams and decision making helps to reduce groupthink and improves the quality of decision making. Which is handy, as it's the morally right thing to do, as well.
