SlideshowWiCipedia: Doubling Down on Diversity & Google's Payoff Scandal

'Diversity Is Not an Accident'
Jason Fried, co-founder of Basecamp, wrote a fascinating article for Inc. about this very subject. He (an enlightened white guy) writes, 'I have nothing against white guys, but white guys don't reflect the world at large or our customer base. I believe a company is at its best when it reflects those it serves. If you fill a room with 20 random employees and 20 random customers, an outside observer should have trouble telling them apart.' Hear, hear.
