Thread regarding Fidelity Investments layoffs

Fidelity is not woke. Why do so many insist that it is?

I don't really care either way, but why do some fear so much Fidelity is woke when it's not? They just do the standard diversity and inclusion stuff that big companies always do, and even that is done is pretty measured way.

If Abby is sooooo woke, when hasn't she followed Chuck Scwab's lead and dismantled the PAC?

The only people who could consider Fidelity to be “woke” are clueless older straight white men… like the people who run the place.

Fidelity is going woke
Even internal messaging highlight words we shouldn’t be using that “could” be viewed as racism, s-xism and even age related. Surely that has gone too far

Really fidelity is not woke, Fidelity recently printed the LGBT rainbow masks and distributed them during Covid. They are officially participating in parades and sponsoring flags. They are inviting LGBTQ speakers. They are hiring selectively the people not on merit but on D & I ratio. They changed the health insurance policy in all locations to include gender change. It is the most woke firm there is, its not the standard stuff that companies do.

Getting Dad's inheritance can keep woke going a lot further into the future... recession or not than the average listed company that eventually has to answer to shareholders.

"Fidelity is not woke".

Probable keeps the company ahead of the competition. Being "Woke" is a race to the bottom.

Many people take things at face value instead of really thinking about them. Oh, a training and D & I being pushed super hard all of a sudden > Must be genuine > Happy.

"Abby's working hard to make up for her white privilege?"
Let's not be naive. She didn't suddenly wake one morning thinking, I'm going to make up for my white privilege! Yay for me!
Social movement and focus groups pushed her to to change years of hiring practices for the betterment of the company image and profits. That's all. She's no hero.

When I was directed to only hire women and minorities, I consider that woke. Abby's working hard to make up for her white privilege.
