The tricky thing here is that diversity can be a great asset to a company, but only if that diversity is relevant.

If team 1 consists of 4 white male developers and team 2 consists of 2 women and 2 black men, the diversity crowd will say that team 1 is not diverse. But what if the members of team 1 are experts in different computer languages, systems and industries, while everybody in team 2 has the same background? Team 1 would be more diverse, in a way that actually benefits the business.

What gets me is that the least diverse industries by gender are female dominated, such as kindergarten teachers. But you never hear about diversity drives there. Wonder why that is?
