I was reading (yes I read) a mission statement for YPN (young professionals network) a group within NAR. I think the group started because someone decided young people are better than old people and that more of them should be in charge. I digress.
In the mission statement was the phrase “like minded individuals” and the word “diversity”. Seriously? Diversity isn’t about finding people from different ethnic groups who all think alike. What is the point of having a diverse group if they all think alike? What is the point of having any kind of a workgroup or committee if everyone on it thinks alike?
Why not just have that one handsome younger guy in a suit be the whole committee?
