Diversity Training

I came across an interesting thing yesterday. A friend of mine, who works for a FTSE-100 company, had to undergo compulsory diversity training. He had come home with a pack of booklets he had been given about Islam, published by the Islamic Propogation Centre. In other words, materials for use in prosoletising.

My friend said he thought that this was a response to the perceived mismatch between the ethnic/religious diversity of the company compared to that of the surrounding population.

I quipped, "One way to redress the balance would be to get more muslims to become employees. Another is for the company to assist in the conversion of existing ones."

Just call it, "Diversity Training".
