Episode 1 - A critique of the diversity movement

This podcast features a talk given by Farhad Dalal at the 2010 BAATN Men's conference in London.

Farhad is a psychotherapist, supervisor and group analyst and has published widely on forming an understanding of some of the causes of hatred of others in general and racism in particular. His recent publication 'Thought Paralysis - The virtues of discrimination' continues that understanding. In this talk Farhad critiques the diversity movement and explores what makes organisations take up diversity policies so readily but not take up say anti racism, and how the themes of the diversity movement bring with them a kind of thought paralysis and a reliance on tick boxes and procedures.

Listen here to the podcast.
