FTSE 100 clients demand diversity
I am tired of the same old coded 'this is an attack against the white male' response whenever diversity, particularly cultural (or simply, race!) diversity rears its head.
The fact is, the UK in terms of BME representation is generally woefully under represented across most of the professional groups. The pleasing fact that FTSE companies and the legal profession are increasingly recognising the commercial and societal benenfits of diversity is to be lauded and not lampooned. Change will take time and in the UK, under the existing legal framework (i.e. non-positive discrimination), be incremental. That may not be a bad thing. Equal treatment is a nice statement - but for many organisations proving it actually happens and having the wherewithall to achieve it, is another thing!
