Diversity Without Equity Is Oppression

My post on LinkedIn hit a nerve. I challenged the notion that Diversity Initiatives are a form of Equity Work. Equity Work requires us to do anti-oppression work. If we are not actively engaged in anti-racist, anti-sexist, anti-classist, etc. work--and we commit to primarily Diversity Work--than we are recruiting marginalized people to learn in, work in, and teach in oppressive environments. That is the opposite of equity.
