Diversity training ‘forces workers to hide beliefs’ for fear of losing job

by Daniel Martin, Telegraph:

Free Speech Union found that 31 per cent had left a former employer because of their endorsement of ‘woke’ ideology.

Almost two-thirds of staff who undergo diversity training at work say they have had to conceal what they really thought for fear of losing their job, according to a survey by the Free Speech Union.

Nearly a quarter say they have been compelled to say things they don’t believe after attending the courses.

Members of the minority communities, where the schemes are meant to benefit, were more likely to find the training conflicted with their views, the survey of 800 employees found.

One person surveyed, a white woman in her late 50s, said: “I think everyone is too scared to speak about topics like this any more and certainly free speech doesn’t exist in my company.”

It comes after Kemi Badenoch told the Telegraph that Britain’s diversity push had been “counterproductive” and that many equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) initiatives are “snake oil”.
