    and people wonder where Tokenism comes from or why it exists at all. hopefully her supplier goes to her boss and tells them to reign in the loose canon.

    And what's he going to say? "Dude, she totes hired an Indian chick instead of a white dude, and that's so not cool".

    But hey, it looks like the right has finally learned to play the manufactured outrage game race card in much the same way the left does. We're all screwed now! :O

    edit: changed it because the right manufactures outrage at least as well as the left, but haven't played the race card nearly as much.

    White, middle-aged, middle-class men playing the repressed card. There is little more cynical and laughable.

    Because she's being racist against white people by taking the initiative to hire others who aren't.

    she seems to demand it of her staff AND suppliers.
    ***no Sams club will not be doing business with you until YOU hire based on the color of the skin****

    Oh I see. A couple of people on the inter webs posted that they won't shop there anymore. Whatever.

    What you talking about, Willis? Most of her leadership team is white and half of them are white dudes. If she's discriminating, it's against Asians.:p

    I wonder how things will go when she meets with the Chinese manufacturers. OMG, the opposite side are all Chinese, not a single black or white guy.:eek:

    Admittedly, this'll probably be the reason she's fired. She can hire who she wants, but if Sam's Club starts losing money because she refuses to do business with suppliers over political issues...

    Depends on how far she decides to take it.

    This is actually the one thing I take exception to concerning those who tend to be a little more passionate about their politics. I can understand striving towards diversity, but trying to ignore those who don't share your worldview? That won't do a thing to convince people of your way of thinking.

    It's a problem I see everywhere these days. It seems everyone is saying that people who don't agree with you are stupid, and aren't worth your time.

    I can't wait! :mad:

    About 35% of business school graduates are women, and there is nothing that men can do better in the executive board room than women.

    Thus, it is reasonable to expect that a corporation with a large executive team doing business with Sam's Club that doesn't discriminate based on gender and only hires based on skill would have somewhere in the vicinity of 35% women in their executive ranks (maybe +/- 10%). After all, their sample would be representative of the pool they are drawing from but for some biased or discriminatory factor.

    If they have significantly less than 35% women, then either their recruitment efforts are biased towards men, their workplace policies are unappealing to women, or they are straight up discriminatory in their hiring and promoting. In any case, something they are doing is wrong.

    Considering this supplier, which seems pretty large from the scope of their executive team described in the article, has no women at all, something is very wrong with them.

    I believe the odds on random runs of heads or tails is surprisingly high, so you'd expect the same with board members.

    I'd say it's a combination of this, and Rssn's last line. You'll never have a situation where everything breaks down perfectly along demographic lines, nor should you expect it to. But if you come across a situation where, time after time, it's only one specific group of people being represented in the boardroom, you could safely surmise they're probably going out of their way to hire from that one group.
