Forcing a company to hire diversity a form of racism; pure and simple. The problem is not the hiring of diversity but the education system. Fix that and I am sure that you will have equal representation in the ranks of the corporation.
Hi Rodney - I appreciate your sympathy but I am caucasian. I do not believe in "forced" diversity. However, there does not appear to a valid reason why so few women and minorities are in the ranks of SAP.
Using "the system" as an excuse is ridiculous. The fact is that if less than 5% of your sales force is female, there is likely an issue at the top of the orgnization. If you have offices in Atlanta and Philly with zero African Americans, there is likely a link to the top of your organization.
I just asked if anyone felt this was the case at SAP. The Education system is not to blame when one organization does not examine its hiring practices or the hiring practices of its management team.
I don't believe in forced diversity, either. Hire the best man or women for the job. With that said, SAP has large campuses in China and India and has many chinese and indian employees in North America, as well. A woman is the head of North American Operations.
