  16. 16. “A study of 700+ US companies found that implementing diversity training programs has little positive effect and may even decrease representation of black women. Most people assume that diversity policies make companies fairer for women and minorities, though the data suggest otherwise. Even when there is clear evidence of discrimination at a company, the presence of a diversity policy leads people to discount claims of unfair treatment. In previous research, we’ve found that this is especially true for members of dominant groups and those who tend to believe that the system is generally fair. In another set of experiments, we found that diversity initiatives also seem to do little to convince minorities that companies will treat them more fairly.” Tessa Dover, Cheryl Kaiser, Brenda Major https://hbr.org/2016/01/diversity-policies-dont-help-women-or-minorities-and-they-make-white- men-feel-threatened Diversity Can Backfire
