Youre conflating diversity and equity.

I refer you to my earlier post, Bostonian.

Diversity itself is not dilutive; in this case, its very much the opposite, as diversity is the source of many of the most able candidates in the field. Neither is equity dilutive, unless its founded on a low standard as the a priori agreed upon standard.

Team 3 spoke cogently to the core issue.

What is to give light must endure burning.
