    This article is following a trend that is becoming ridiculous in my view.

    When it comes to "Diversity and Inclusion" what any logical person should want and get is a level playing field, and to be evaluated on their merits. Yes, there are absolutely biases out there. Mainly because we are, unfortunately, a society who predominantly judge people on having the "right" look - be it on the grounds of race, gender, or age - as opposed to character, capability, potential and willingness to learn.

    Unfortunately, the "Diversity and inclusion" mantra doesn't address this. It simply pigeon-holes people even more, and has become nothing more than a patronising tick-box exercise at best; and at worst, a vehicle to sell products around.

    In an era where we have a supposed talent shortage, the focus should be on just that: talent and potential.
