DEI Shouldn’t Just Be a Black Thing… They Just Do It Better

It’s been bugging me since Gene Bryan of HispanicAd.com raised the issue on his website in early September. My compadre was ranting about the glaring omission of Hispanics in a piece written by Amira Barger a DEI practitioner and executive vice president, Health DEI at Edelman. The piece in PR Daily titled  "No, you are not ‘over-indexing on Black"  is a well written argument as to why organizations must challenge their pre-conceived notions on their DEI efforts in regard to the Black community. She frames and supports her argument with solid facts from the vantage point of “what it means to be employed while Black, to what it means to be represented in marketing while Black” kudos to her. Gene’s point was that the piece should have been more inclusive as opposed to Black focused. I believed that was entirely Ms. Barger’s prerogative. But the omission did leave me wondering why when DEI comes up, it always seems to be in reference to the Black community.  By Pedro de Cordoba is a multicultural marketing and sales consultant.
