@rancid-schnitzel Yes, at the BBC, but a traineeship under the Creative Access scheme.
Why are the BBC involved with this? They are a public company. It's one thing if CA fund or train this person and then send them off to interviews (where is their funding from btw? I question whether they're 100% private) but the BBC should not be affiliated with them or send out job advertisements essentially in their name saying whites need not apply.
I don't have any issues with initiatives that encourage people to get into particular industries. I've been involved with "Women in Tech" initiatives in the past, where we got a bunch of 16-17 year old girls in for the day to show them what working in IT is all about.
But when people and organisations try to set arbitrary quotas on equal representation without any understanding of why an imbalance may exist that is a real problem, leading to what has been outlined already - dangerous collectivist ideas and discrimination.
Even in that interview, Newman wasn't remotely interested in why a pay imbalance may exist, but had decided that it needed to be "fixed". But how can you fix something with no understanding of either a) why it is exists and b) if it is even a problem that needs to be fixed? And you see this all the time - idenitify an imbalance, decide it's because of discrimination with ZERO evidence, then set about trying to fix it with more discrimination. It's high time people start resisting this politically motivated bullshit without any evidence to back it up.
