“with the slim exception of veterans or those with disabilities”
It’s sad how progressive politics have basically devolved into discrimination.
The College Fix reports:
White and Asian male applicants largely shunned from investment program at Washington and Lee University
White and Asian male student applicants, with the slim exception of veterans or those with disabilities, are the only students who are not encouraged to apply for a lucrative learning opportunity offered through Washington and Lee University’s Williams School of Commerce, Economics and Politics.
The program is offered by the Williams Investment Society, or WIS, “a student organization that manages a portion of Washington and Lee University’s endowment in equity securities,” its website states.
“To promote equality of opportunity, the WIS has developed a successful diverse shadow program and we encourage you to apply if you self-identify with any of the following communities: Women, Black, Lantinx, Latin, Native American, LGBTQ+, Veterans, and Students with Disabilities,” the society states in advertising the program.
According to the university’s published demographic stats, a little less than half of its 2,183 students are male, making men more of a minority on campus than women. There’s also 55 Asian female students enrolled versus 38 Asian males. The vast majority of students are white.
“If you are selected to participate in the shadow program, you will be assigned to an industry group, and have the opportunity to work with that group on company valuation, industry analysis, and discussions on equity portfolio management,” the Williams Investment Society advertises for its shadow program.
