    If the captop is worn, the pump can't clean the head.

    Hard to understand?

    I find it hard to understand how this spreadsheet is not racist / prejudice. I receive these every year and decline to complete them.

    In a previous post, you mention that the majority of your suppliers are Japan/China based.
    How can your company expect diversity in companies from countries that tend to dissuade foreign immigration/employment? lol
    Just a thought .. tell them that you'll do the research, but that will entail an all expense paid tour of all your suppliers to do a tally?
    That should take a coupla' years. :rolleyes:

    The spreadsheet did not come from my company. It came from a major automaker. They expect me to ask my suppliers some questions that I would simply never ask (none of my business, and no bearing on the product quality).

    Are they looking to reward or punish diversity?

    From their perspective, they think they're promoting diversity and inclusivity.

    I suppose it IS inclusive, as long as you're not a white male.

    I'm not working anymore, but am meeting with a Postmedia reporter tomorrow to instruct him on the technical details of a government-wide survey he is tasked with reporting on. Hopefully, he will leave with a clearer understanding than most of the federal managers who are tasked with responding to it.

    Laudable goals. Sadly, the folks in HR who are tasked with achieving those goals often have little understanding of their own employment systems, or of organizational functioning. They're REALLY skilled at filling out forms, though, and giving others forms to fill out, and providing reports to senior management based on those filled-out forms.

    I just can't imagine a conversation in which I ask a supplier if they are LGBTQ or what ethnicity they are et cetera.

    Incomprehensible,

    I'm retired which I guess is work in itself. Should I set the alarm or not? I glad I no longer have to worry about both natural and artificial light, humidity, both air and water temperature, plant height and age, wind, amount of liquid water on the ground and on the plants, shock to plants, amount and type of fertilizers, plant type, amount and type of insecticides, moving plants from a controlled environment to a non-controlled one, and about 3 dozen otherthings before the plants can be harvested and put in cold storage or shipped......which involves something completely different.

    That sounds easier than having a clear understanding of the technical details of a government-wide survey.

    I can easily imagine the conversation. I just can't imagine it ending well.
