Have Diversity Initiatives Made Us More Divisive?

According to Scientific American on September 16, 2014, “The first thing to acknowledge about diversity is that it can be difficult. In the U.S., where the dialogue of inclusion is relatively advanced, even the mention of the word “diversity” can lead to anxiety and conflict. Supreme Court justices disagree on the virtues of diversity and the means for achieving it. Corporations spend billions of dollars to attract and manage diversity both internally and externally, yet they still face discrimination lawsuits, and the leadership ranks of the business world remain predominantly white and male.”

This article more specifically addresses exactly what this premise raises squarely and frankly to engender water-cooler discussion and further comment by you. For diversity is more than just skin deep, it is about people first and foremost. Has diversity divided us into divisiveness is the issue raised herein.

MH17 Three Months: Investigation Presses On After Dutch Report

Thursday, October 9, 2014 marks three months, since the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17. Air crash investigators and experts are counting on a comprehensive technical analysis of the airliners’ flight data recorders (or “black-boxes”), and a scientific forensic analysis of the remains of the 283 passengers and 15 Malaysia Airlines crew members, to build the most complete picture of how the airliner was brought down, and where the “high-energy objects” that penetrated the aircraft had originated from on the morning of July 17 over war-torn Hrabove, Ukraine, as suggested in the preliminary findings of the Dutch Safety Board.
