It turns out that diversity isn’t a good thing if everyone is different but the same. The gender balance and racial mix (and cross section of sexuality) may shout diversity but if every single person thinks the same way, believes the same things has almost identical backgrounds. There is no challenge , no alternative way of looking at it, no different view just reinforcing what everyone already believes.
