Pfizer Sets Race-Based Hiring Goals to Deal With "Systemic Racism"

Because why not, right?

Friends,

You may have many thoughts about Pfizer and Big Pharma, but whether or not they might be secretly racist is probably, in my expert opinion, not one of those thoughts.

From Fox Business:

The pharmaceutical company Pfizer has set goals to fill a specific percentage of leadership positions with Black and Hispanic candidates by the year 2025, in the name of fighting "systemic racism."

According to Pfizer's Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) Report 2020, published in March 2021, the company set "opportunity parity goals" for 2025. Those goals include "increasing our minority representation from 19% to 32% and doubling the underrepresented population of African Americans/Blacks and Hispanics/Latinos."

The report includes a letter from Albert Bourla, Pfizer's chairman and CEO, in which Bourla says he is "proud" of having "set concrete goals to address systemic racism and gender equity challenges by reviewing and augmenting our plans to increase diversity and opportunity parity by 2025, particularly focusing on increasing female and U.S. minority representation at leadership levels."

"We now have quotas, basically, in hiring and promotions," explained a current Pfizer employee, who spoke with Fox News on condition of anonymity. The employee said the company hosted events with Ibram X. Kendi and encouraged employees to read books written by Robin DiAngelo. Both of these authors lead an "anti-racist" movement based on critical race theory, which involves deconstructing aspects of society to discover "systemic racism" beneath the surface.

The saying goes “get woke, go broke” but its hard to go broke when you’re profiting from a pandemic and government mandates.

Oh well…
