Pinterest: The New Diversity Battleground?

I’ve only recently started using Pinterest. There was so much buzz about it, and since I try to stay reasonably current I did what any smart person would do…I called Craig Fisher to learn the real story. He was gracious with his time and shared some insights that I’ll be putting into practice shortly from a recruitment perspective.

So off I went to learn, experiment, and play with this new fangled tool…and a discussion of sorts started playing out on one of my Pinterest boards. Apparently the threat of treating all people with respect has spilled over onto this new social site.

People Are People, Right?

Maybe it’s just me, but if the people who are so threatened by our lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender friends, coworkers and neighbors would just put that same energy into helping people verus attacking people, imagine what our world would look like?

How About You

Are you as surprised as I am that the threat of treating all people equally has now spilled over onto Pinterest? What do you do when confronted with this type of narrow-minded bigotry?

I’d love to hear from you.

No Excuses.
