Is there another link to the recording? This appears to have been taken down

So basically she laid these people off because they were white men. And that's not racist?!

Innocent Mistake or not, isn't the issue. Senior Leaders are expected to be exemplary. When slip ups like this (or that of the hot mic incident on that ISRM call) happen, it reeks of sloppiness plain and simple. If our so-called leaders are sloppy and careless, how can we be confident in the decisions that they take? How is it that our company has such a tolerance for sloppy behavior? When I see some of the decisions and direction our so-called senior leaders are taking, and the outcomes that are being produced, I get the feeling there was a lot of sloppiness during the design and architecture of many of those decisions.

I am sure it was an innocent mistake as she was reading from some script, but adding her own words from a regular executive lingo she uses all the time. So adding latest buzzword to a wrong slide has made it public...

"CIO needs to go. She lives in some parallel world. She just said "Month of June, we call it Happy Pride Month or Juneteenth" while talking LQBTQ topic in a Town Hall..."

Apologies if I'm wrong on this : but I thought Juneteenth has to do with the end of slavery, not LGBT - or am I wrong? While both discriminations are appalling, I'd think it would be pretty insulting to equate the two together....especially on a town hall. Shows disrespect - not that she said it, but rather the way she said it.

Kinda like the ISRM call a few weeks ago with the hot mic incident from the CISO

Seems being disrespectful is the way to the top at MCK!

if a new CIO came into a company and the 10 leaders were all black and she decided to replace all those black leaders simply based on the colour of their skin there would be nation wide outrage.
Why is it ok to do when because they were white. That is racism pure and simple.

Now if she replaced them because they didn't have the skills required to do the job that is perfectly fine.

The more I read the more I disbelieve all the internal propaganda around work as one team, commit to out customers, We can Do it, Open and honest bla bla bla - its all just sound boarding.

ISRM is being gutted and people are leaving on their own accord - the future is not a bright place. Sadly all that will happen is people will be quickly replaced, roles will be outsources and the big ships keeps moving forward.

"I get that white privilege exists and we as a society must do better to make our communities more equitable for all members and this may mean having to correct past wrong, and we may have to subsidize some members of our society as a result..."

It does not even true, it's a big lie called "Big Lie Politicking".

  • Median Household Income --

$126,809 - Indian Americans
$87,243 - Asian Americans (All Asians)
$65,902 - Median (White) American Household Income
$63,179 - Median American (All Races) Household Income
$43,862 - African Americans

Also, before I left I looked around and realized I couldn't find a single black american in a tech department on my floor either. They certainty weren't replacing the white guys they fired with anyone below them on the privilege list.

Diversity and Inclusion is important no doubt and a core value. But I am very skeptical on the way MCK is going about it. For example the Global CISO in my opinion is not particularly suitable for the role, seeing that he's 1 year into it now, and if he was hired to satisfy someone's diversity quota rather than being hired for his results, we as a company are doing down a very dangerous path. His Cyber Talents or lack of have nothing to do with skin color, but rather it has to do with the nature of cyber in itself and he does not appear to approach it with the pragmatism that would be expected of someone in such a role. I get that white privilege exists and we as a society must do better to make our communities more equitable for all members and this may mean having to correct past wrong, and we may have to subsidize some members of our society as a result.. But merit, talent and qualifications also needs to be taken into account and if this gets missed, there will be much larger consequences down the line for us as a group.

Sorry I think she is right. She doing what Corp American has done for many years of hiring people that look like them just human nature. Don’t hate cause she is playing the game with different deck of cards.
