Nasdaq plans to force listed Companies to affirmative action for LGBT people.
Is truly outstanding and least expensive 5.1 home performance center under 10000 INR accessible on the lookout. It has a sum of 8 speakers; 5 in the front and 3 on the back. The sound is fresh and clear in any event, when you have a high volume or enormous bass melodies. The sub-woofer has a pounding bass yield that you can feel in your body while tuning in to music. The speakers are made of unadulterated polypropylene composite with a glossy dark completion. There are 2 full-range drivers, 1 top terminating tweeter, 2 forward looking woofers.
This proposed piece of ludicrous legislation is blatant ageism.
There is no provision shown for those who identify with a generation which is different to their biological age.
For instance, I'm 16 years old bit I identify as being 68 so why am I excluded from being eligible to take my place on the board of directors of the major listed corporations?
the nasdaq stock exchange is privately owned. this is literally a company determining its own policies for itself you moron. companies which elect to participate in their listings must accept the terms and conditions which nasdaq inc determines for itself as an independent business venture. no one is forcing the other companies to use the services and they are welcome to opt out rather than equivocating on their principles for financial gain.
I didn’t read the whole thing but I find it weird that who I have sex with should ever come up during a job interview. Sexuality is personal.
Gender on the other hand is expressed.
Now, what might need affirmative action is trans people. This is more visible and easy for someone to judge during an interview. A functioning society will just automatically choose the better qualified person. But statistics will support that companies tend to not hire the trans person. This is not something we can deny. And we all know why trans are not being hired : people are not comfortable with them.
so affirmative action could help break ice. But affirmative action can backfire when done incorrectly.
HELPFUL AFFIRMATIVE ACTION : between a transgender and cisgender who are both good for the job, you will hire the transgender
DESTRUCTIVE AFFIRMATIVE ACTION : between a transgender and cisgender where is transgender is not qualified AT ALL for the job, you will hire the transgender
gender identity is distinct from gender presentation. furthermore, some transgender people "pass". so one does not always know whether the person they are speaking with is transgender.
hiring discrimination against visibly or openly transgender people is a part of the cause for under-representation. i honestly don't think it's the greatest one. greater vulnerability to parental abuse and neglect, homelessness rates among transgender youth, etc. are probably more significant. affirmative action comes rather far downstream from the unequal starting conditions.
