As you've seen (and been part of!), the historical process has
allocate everything to Ambassadors in the regions, so this is new. I'd
also like to see the Ambassadors consider diversity as important in
regional spending, not something that needs to be funded separately and
centrally. If that's not working, we can and should plan for a separate
diversity budget for FY18. (We'll be working at that at Flock.)
Even if all ambassadors are trained in practical aspects of diversity,
understanding and playing an active role in policy implementations
will be difficult for them
In India, for example, there is much diversity in discrimination.
The most visible would be caste based discrimination (this results in
segregation, denial of resources and services). Even in universities
in cities it matters.
Would a college student from STEM be able to handle related diversity issues?
Not really expected of them.
