Yes, sure, snore... then let's just pretend quotas to fill doesn't exist or companies putting the "how diverse they are in percentage". Seems like you have worked to every single company in the HR and see how all of they hire right?

Don, that's the very definition and function of diversity hiring. This is how it's done.  Everywhere.

I never said quotas don't exist or that companies do not tout how diverse they are.  I simply showed you how they make that diverse hire, how they attain their quotas, how they establish their diversity percentages.

You do realize you are on the verge of suggesting that diverse candidates cannot be both diverse and qualified, don't you? 

Nope I'm not in any verge. A candidate could be from a very poor background, be non-cis, non-white, non-cristian, etc and still be the best qualified one.

Still I gave you example of company that tossed out a candidate because he said on his test that qualification was more important than diversity. And you can't pretend that every HR will look at candidate filling out a minimum, because if for they to fill their quota they need to go below the minimum they will go. Plus HR are very limited on how they evaluate a candidate and seldom really comprehend the requirements of the position that need to hire.

The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau


Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.
