Harvard Hires Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer

Harvard Hires Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer

“I am thrilled to see the groundswell of work that already exists at Harvard”

Diversity and inclusion is now its own industry within higher education. How long before it becomes a major?

The Harvard Crimson reports:

Charleston to Serve as Harvard’s Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer

Sherri A. Charleston will serve as Harvard’s Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer beginning August 1, University President Lawrence S. Bacow announced Monday.

Charleston — a historian and attorney — will be the first person to hold the new position, which was formed after the Presidential Task Force on Inclusion and Belonging completed its work in 2018.

“Sherri is an administrative leader and interdisciplinary scholar whose work at the intersection of history and law informs her efforts to translate theory into practice that improves higher education,” Bacow wrote in the announcement. “She is widely admired for her ability to integrate all aspects of an institution into her strategic thinking and decision making.”

In the new Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer role, she will report directly to Bacow, working to implement the task force’s recommendations. As a senior central administrator, Charleston will also serve as a member of the Academic Council.

“I am thrilled to see the groundswell of work that already exists at Harvard, and I look forward to synthesizing and integrating the University’s many effective diversity and inclusion efforts into a visible, innovative strategy for enhancing diversity, equity, access, inclusion, and belonging across campus,” Charleston said in a press release.

She will make up work (featherbedding) like this no doubt.

Michael Korenberg was targeted for cancellation by pro-antifa campus activist group, UBC Students Against Bigotry, after he liked tweets from Ann Coulter, Charlie Kirk and Dinesh D’Souza – as well as tweets wishing President Trump a happy birthday, according to True North….”

I believe that’s Diversity-Equity-Inclusion Youth Training, or DIE-YT.

When diversity and inclusion is a primary goal, the usual downside is excellence. When ethnicity and skin pigmentation adds to employability, higher qualified people are left out. If discrimination is bad, and it is, why discriminate against anyone?
