The notion that expanding the board without any other action would
meaningfully impact "diversity" is absurd on its face. Especially since the
consultation revealed the abject lack of any sort of concrete definition of
the diversity we're trying to expand. You can call me a white male all you
want and continue to imply that's a bad thing to be but the bottom line is
that you're calling for action without a plan supported by any kind of
objective reasoning.
