Bye, Bye DEI and good riddance

Diversity, equity, and inclusion, or DEI , has insinuated itself into many aspects of Americans’ lives, from corporate hiring to college admissions. Over much of the past few years, diversity officers have been some of the hottest hires in business , university, and government bureaucracies. But recently, they’ve begun to feel left out in the cold.

According to the Wall Street Journal , “Companies including Netflix, Disney and Warner Bros. Discovery have said recently that high-profile diversity, equity and inclusion executives will be leaving their jobs. Thousands of diversity-focused workers have been laid off since last year, and some companies are scaling back racial justice commitments.”

aybe companies are discovering that DEI is superfluous or even damaging to their bottom lines and that the DEI staff are often considered to be un-collegial and bullying.

The trend of deemphasizing DEI will likely be accelerated by the June U.S. Supreme Court decision that found race-conscious admissions to colleges were unconstitutional. It should also apply to admissions, hiring, and promotions at medical and other professional schools.
