Hear that sound?
That would be a sigh of relief nationwide, as the absolute mania surrounding varied diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts continue to atrophy nationwide as the growing economic pains set in nationwide.
As it turns out, companies apparently don’t need to depend upon DEI efforts to survive.
On the contrary, such DEI positions are fluff at best, precisely why they have faced far more attrition than other professions.
As reported by NBC News, the role that DEI officers play in corporate America today has steadily dwindled as the reality of economic headwinds continues to bite into businesses’ bottom line.
“DEI roles increased by 55% following demands for broader racial equity and justice after Floyd’s murder, the Society for Human Resource Management reported in 2020. But instead of creating fair opportunities and a comfortable work culture for Black employees, a pair of recent reports indicate, DEI professionals are losing their jobs, as layoffs across the economy have gained momentum …
The attrition rate for DEI roles was 33% at the end of 2022, compared to 21% for non-DEI roles. Amazon, Applebees and Twitter lead the way with DEI layoffs since July 2022,” the outlet reported.
Looks like Twitter CEO Elon Musk wasn’t kidding about cleaning up shop in Twitter.
And, for all its wokeness, even Amazon apparently buckles down when the bottom line bites.
Little wonder Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has zero patience for DEI efforts, especially those that begin via CRT in school.
“[Reforms] must be grounded in actual history, the actual philosophy that has shaped western civilization,” DeSantis declared boldly, “we are also going to eliminate all DEI and CRT bureaucracies in the state of Florida. No funding. And that will wither on the vine.”
Amen! One can only imagine the types of executive orders DeSantis or a candidate like DeSantis would sign, which may enrage the woke but will certainly comfort conservative families.
Speaking of conservative families, DeSantis also recently took aim at sex-obsessed teachers, especially with regards to transgender ideology, with new suggestions for further amending bills designed to protect family interests.
Within the proposed rule, an intriguing set of principles emerges: the Principles of Professional Conduct for the Education Profession in Florida, which declare that teachers “shall not intentionally provide classroom instruction to students in grades 4 through 12 on sexual orientation or gender identity unless such instruction is either expressly required by state academic standards as adopted in Rule 6A-1.09401, F.A.C., or is part of a reproductive health course or health lesson for which a student’s parent has the option to have his or her student not attend.”
Excellent. In particular the last note: “A student’s parent has the option to have his or her student not attend.”
The use of “him or her” is also hilarious, as DeSantis refuses to play the transgender pronoun game.
DeSantis has already succeeded in banning sex-obsessed teachers from prattling on about gender to extremely young children, and he has naturally set his sights on expanding oversight of public education to ensure vulnerable students in middle and high school are protected.
And he could care less what woke companies have to say.
“All too often, GOP governors have bowed to corporate pressure, especially on noneconomic issues; I was going to stand firm in defense of the rights of parents and the well-being of our schoolchildren,” DeSantis added pointedly.
Ironically, it seems that even the clueless corporations clamoring to be cool have realized that being woke will effectively lead to going broke.
