    This phenomena was brought to my attention by an article posted to LinkedIn recently. Evidently it was published in the Harvard Business Review in March 2016, and it explored how “Women and Minorities Are Penalized for Promoting Diversity.” I immediately thought of the 5 women managers I have between me and the governor of CA and what they might have endured to hire each other and to hire me. It stated that there are no rewards to white males for creating diverse work environments and that there are actually punishments for women and minorities who do. Incredible!

    I applaud Ms. Isaacs attempts at diversifying The Academy, and wish her well. I’m thankful to her and everyone like her for risking their reputation and comfort on the job so that more diverse people have access. God help those who don’t take the access they’re given.
