‘Equity’ fatal trap for human resources

Is unconscious bias training ‘an Orwellian nightmare, unsubstantiated by science’?

In late September, I posted three videos on YouTube. They were the culmination of a growing sense of frustration I experienced, both personal and professional, about the expanding dominion of a rigid and resentment-driven ideology of power, masquerading under the guise of compassion, threatening both the University of Toronto and society beyond academia.

The first video criticized legislation that added the categories of “gender identity” and “gender expression” to the list of group-membership features protected under Canadian law (including the Criminal Code, and defined as hate speech).

The second criticized the university’s HR and equity department’s decision to make “anti-racism and anti-bias” training mandatory. The third criticized the ideological presumptions associated with political correctness, and offered tips for resistance.
