The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) is in hot water after issuing instructions to staff not to hire candidates it considers “dismissive or derisory of diversity and inclusion”. An insider source claims the BBC is actively excluding dissenting employees.
According to a recruitment document, sources within the corporation reveal to the Telegraph, applicants are asked to “explain what diversity and inclusion means to you and, should you be successful, what opportunities do you see for you to promote, celebrate or encourage diversity and inclusion in your role?”.
The source says the BBC is not a “welcoming” place for conservative views.
– Management talks about diversity without embracing diversity of thought. Hiring on the basis of adherence to diversity and inclusion ideology excludes most conservative-minded people, and indeed much of the population.
In addition, recruiters are told not to hire people who are perceived to be “dismissive or derisory of diversity and inclusion and surrounding topics”. Managers at the state broadcaster are also instructed not to offer jobs to candidates who display a “lack of interest in learning more where no evidence of education and understanding of diversity and inclusion was given”.
– The place to which I have dedicated years of my working life, and which I sincerely value, is currently feeling hijacked by left-wing activists and is unable to uphold our core principle of impartiality.
