When people are divided into categories to illustrate the idea of diversity, it reinforces the idea of the categories. Categories are dehumanizing. They simplify the complexity of a human being. So focusing people on the categories increases their prejudice. Don’t reinforce labels, which only serve to stereotype.
Millions of dollars a year were spent on the training resulting in, well, nothing.
I could have told you this for a dollar. Anytime we focus on race, gender, or sexual preference we risk losing the individual to the label, which makes it easier to stereotype. Though, I am not entirely against the use of labels as they help us recall a frame of reference.
Honestly, the idea is ludicrous and unrealistically idealistic. Whether you agree with me or not, you will never forcefully indoctrinate or erase labels. Labels exist for a purpose, they help us identify groups of people either positively or negatively. People will always stereotype.
In other news; study finds people who buy organic foods are pretentious, elitist snobs. Again, I could have told you this for a dollar.
