This morning I read this New York Times article I found incredibly pertinent to our class on Monday, titled “Has diversity lost is meaning.”

Who defines “diversity” and who is representative of “diversity;”, who is straying from the “general public” — both such fluid terms that seem to have become tropes. How is one deemed worthy of filling the job title, “Head of Diversity and Belonging,” that AirBnb is apparently on the lookout for?
After, I found this article on large corporations contemplating becoming more diverse: http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/06/28/new-diversity-reports-show-the-same-old-results/?_r=0
