I’m often positioned in diversity roles. I have been leapfrogged over by white women with less quals, less experience & less skills who were aligned with white men & socialised with them in different ways to us black women & women of colour. They then became the boss in the area over us, including of the diversity & equity space. I see this in numerous areas. I was shocked the first time it happened to me. I’ve also seen alignment in the workplace along alcohol drinking between men & women. That is, this is the same social networks they congregate in at uni functions & this they share invites with each other to key events, sit together & represent together. Others this are not included in this circle of invitations. It’s really disappointing!
