missing andkeeping thedraw scenario in mind it’s not going to an be easy affair for India inBishkek Decades before Anita Hill Gretchen Carlson or #MeToo American companies dreamed up “diversity training” typically a course that lasts anywhere from an hour to a couple of days with the goal of wiping out biases against women and others from underrepresented groups For most of its history diversity training has been pretty much a cudgel pounding white men into submission with a mix of finger-wagging and guilt-mongering The first training programs surfaced in the 1950s after men returned from World War II and were appalled and perplexed to find women in their offices After the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 the training took on more urgency Within a decade it had morphed into a knee-jerk response to legal actions after a series of high-profile sex-discrimination suits including one by the women of Newsweek magazine who were stranded in a pink ghetto “Women don’t write at Newsweek If you want to be a writer go someplace else” the bosses told them according to Lynn Povich one of the 46 women who sued By the time I entered the workforce in the 1980s the Newsweek suit and others like it–led by women at TIME the Associated Press and the New York Times–were mostly forgotten Diversity training had taken a backseat too I don’t recall ever hearing the phrase until the 1990s By then it had been reconstituted as a feel-good exercise in consciousness-raising White men were told they should include women and minorities because it’s the right thing to do It was all about the importance of “inclusion” But here’s the thing about diversity training: it doesn’t work Harvard organizational sociology professor Frank Dobbin and others have since delved into why such programs have failed Dobbin combed through thousands of data points and found that for white women and black men and women in management positions it actually made things worse That’s right: companies that introduced diversity training would actually employ more women and black men today if they had never had diversity training at all He singled out three situations in which training is doomed to fail: when it’s mandatory; when it so much as mentions the law; or when it is specific to managers as opposed to being offered to all employees Unfortunately he found about 75% of firms with diversity-training programs fall into at least one of those categories Perhaps more to the point is the fact that the training infuriates the people it’s intended to educate: white men “Many interpreted the key learning point as having to walk on eggshells around women and minorities–choosing words carefully so as not to offend Some surmised that it meant white men were villains still others assumed that they would lose their jobs to minorities and women while others concluded that women and minorities were simply too sensitive” executives Rohini Anand and Mary-Frances Winters noted in a 2008 analysis of diversity training in the Academy of Management Learning & Education Training done badly can also damage otherwise cordial relationships Women and minorities often leave training sessions thinking their co-workers must be even more biased than they had previously imagined In a more troubling development it turns out that telling people about others’ biases can actually heighten their own Researchers have found that when people believe everybody else is biased they feel free to be prejudiced themselves In one study a group of managers was told that stereotypes are rare while another group was told that stereotypes are common Then both groups were asked to evaluate male and female job candidates The managers who were told that stereotypes are common were more biased against the women In a similar study managers didn’t want to hire women and found them unlikable The evidence is damning Yet companies continue to invest heavily in diversity training spending by one estimate almost $8 billion a year It has led to what the Economist dubbed “diversity fatigue” In a recent article the magazine suggested that 12 of the most terrifying words in the English language are I’m from human resources and I’m here to organize a diversity workshop Now companies are searching for more effective less infuriating alternatives Take tech firms which have come under fire for being among the worst offenders when it comes to bias The irony is that they have also been at the forefront of devising new ways to combat it Can they turn around a culture where sexism has not only been tolerated but in many cases celebrated I sat down with Brian Welle director of people analytics at Google who is tasked with helping lead the latest trend: unconscious-bias training We all have prejudices buried so deeply inside of us that we don’t know they exist Unconscious-bias training is supposed to arm employees with the tools they need to recognize it and neutralize these prejudices His role Welle told me was to ensure that “every decision we made from hiring to promotion to pay to performance didn’t have an unintended bias” against women or other underrepresented groups Welle seized on an insight that has proved to be key for anyone who is trying to wipe out hidden biases: if we believe that everyone around us is trying hard to fight against those stereotypes and prejudices we’ll do the same Call it peer pressure or call it a pack mentality Whatever it is it works Our own biases disappear Welle and his team ultimately developed a workshop for Google employees that strives to mimic those conditions In a typical session he explains the science so that employees can understand that yes we’re all biased and yes we’re all trying to fight it and don’t worry it isn’t your fault He focuses on four ways to “interrupt” bias all of which boil down to one word: awareness He encourages employees to use consistent criteria to measure success and to rely on data rather than on gut reactions when evaluating others He urges them to notice how they react to subtle cues Finally he encourages employees to call out bias when they see it even if the culprit is their own boss To be sure unconscious-bias training isn’t a cure-all Last year a male Google engineer penned an anti-diversity “manifesto” protesting such efforts and later called the firm’s training “just a lot of shaming” The company fired him–and he hit back in January suing Google for discrimination against conservative white males Google is also fighting US Department of Labor allegations of “extreme” underpayment to female Google employees which the company denies Still Google’s seminar is a model that other companies have adopted In just the past few years this kind of training has exploded at companies across the country At Google about 75% of its 75000 employees have taken the workshop and in 2014 the company spent $114 million on its various diversity programs At least 20% of companies in the US now offer unconscious-bias training from the Royal Bank of Canada to consultants McKinsey & Co (“We do that big time” says its top executive Dominic Barton) and defense contractor BAE Systems Almost all of the big tech firms already offer it including Facebook Salesforce and VMware with more joining by the day By some estimates 50% of all American corporations will offer unconscious-bias training in the not-too-distant future Undoubtedly the popularity of these programs has soared in part because they intentionally don’t cast blame The appeal of the training is that unlike old-fashioned diversity training it’s intended to be guilt-free However how much companies talk about equality and inclusiveness matters little compared with how they act Incentives speak louder than any speeches by the CEO or bias-training workshops or posters on a wall For Google as for others one key incentive came in the form of family leave In 2007 Google sweetened its leave policy extending paid maternity leave to nearly five months from three The result was immediate Attrition rates for women who had babies plunged by 50% That set off an arms race of sorts with a growing number of tech firms offering gender-neutral paid parental leave to men as well as women including Twitter (20 weeks) Etsy (26 weeks) Facebook (four months) and Changeorg (18 weeks) Netflix and Virgin Management increased paid parental leave to a full year The practice is now spreading beyond the tech industry to other industries as well The results of these changes are still unfolding But they point to a hard truth For men as well as women it doesn’t matter how sincere companies are in embracing diversity if their own policies work against it–and in particular if they make it impossible to balance work with family America lags far behind most industrial countries in this respect It is the only industrialized country in the world that doesn’t offer paid parental leave At least 96 other countries offer not only guaranteed maternity leave but paternity leave as well including Gambia Armenia Belarus Azerbaijan Togo and Mauritius Without broad policy changes that allow parents in every industry and at every level to have access to affordable health care and child care the rest doesn’t matter Lipman’s book will hit shelves on

ensured his continuance as Bihar chief minister but events of the last two months have indicated that his Janata Dal (United) party might lose its hitherto dominant position vis-a-vis the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) And the BJP is clearly in no mood to remain dependent on Nitish any more It has started focusing on the 2019 general elections and has started chalking out its own plans Its Bihar state unit is busy strengthening its organisation at booth levels while national president Amit Shah’s visit to the state next month is being eagerly awaited by all cadre and state-level leaders The BJP is in no mood to be dependent on Nitish for winning elections and the party has started focusing on general election which is one and half years away The state unit has already chalked out plans to strengthen its organization to booth levels The state unit is eagerly waiting for national president Amit Shah’s visit next month in the state While the JD(U) is backing the padyatra which was supended due to torrential floods the BJP is backing a proposed Kurmi rally by its spokesperson Rajeev Ranjan who was once considered close to Nitish Kumar but changed ranks and joined BJP after differences of opinion Nitish is considered a champion of the Kurmi community which has traditionally voted with the Koeries In fact the two are nicknamed Luv-Kush the twin sons of Lord Rama The Kushwahas or Koeries claim their lineage from Kush while Luv represents the Kurmi community Between the two the Luv-Kush axis accounts for a good 10-12 percent voteshare and they are considered the second dominant caste group within the OBC category after Yadavs (15 percent) Along with Muslims (17 percent) they have traditionally been supporting Lalu Yadav’s Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) But 2014 was one exception when the Yadavs voted for BJP File image of Nitish Kumar PTI The Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) leader and Union minister Upendra Kushwaha claims to represent the Koeries As an alliance partner of the BJP he was successful in transferring the community’s votes to the saffron alliance in 2014 perhaps the first time the Kushwahas and Kurmis voted differently In the 2015 Assembly elections Nitish Kumar turned the tables and got both groups to vote for his "mahagathbandhan" On the other hand Upendra Kushwaha’s party got only two seats in the 243-member Bihar Assembly The BJP fought the 2014 Lok Sabha elections with allies Lok Jan Shakti Party (LJP) and RLSP after Nitish Kumar pulled out of the NDA Together the alliance bagged 31 seats while JD(U) was reduced to just two seats But with Nitish’s return to the fold things have become complicated once again especially with Amit Shah targeting more seats for the party The JD(U) used to being the dominant alliance partner in Bihar used to contest 25 out of 40 Lok Sabha seats but that scenario can be ruled out entirely says Shaibal Gupta of the Asian Development Research Institute who has been advising Nitish on economic issues Challenge for Nitish to retain voter base Rajeev Ranjan is organising a Kurmi rally on 5 November and other BJP leaders are likely to be in attendence "The first Kurmi Ekta Sammelan was organised on 12 February 1994 I feel the need to unite the community again as they are fragmented in areas like Dhanuk Awadhia etc My party has nothing to do with it but I will invite leaders" he said Gupta said the BJP no longer wants to be dependent on Upendra Kushwaha or Nitish Kumar They are targeting the 12 percent votes among OBC with Baniya and Vaishya voters already in their favour "The JD(U) will play second fiddle if it remains part of NDA In fact this would have been on Nitish’s mind even before he decided to join hands with the BJP Even before he broke the ‘mahagathbandhan’ he must have decided on this course of action" Gupta said The astute politician that he is Nitish would have decided to forgo the upper hand for the 2019 Lok Sabha polls knowing his JD(U) would still emerge on top when the 2020 Assembly elections rolls around "This is how a compromise would have been achieved Nitish will lead in the state and allow BJP to take the lead for parliamentary polls" Gupta added But he does disagree that another leader can replace Nitish as a representative of the Luv-Kush community "Rajeev Ranjan is Nitish’s school friend but political compulsions made him to join the BJP He is only trying to establish himself in Nalanda Barh and Biharshareef where the Luv-Kush play a decisive role This is more of a personal turf war" he said Nitish a product of Kurmi Mahasabha In fact the very emergence of Nitish Kumar as a mass leader dates back to 1994 when he was with the Janata Dal the ruling party in Bihar then led by Lalu Prasad Yadav After three years of Lalu’s tenure as chief minister a new social formation was in the works when the Mandal unity started crumbling and the state was witnessing mass murders on caste lines Satish Kumar a prominent CPI leader who was supporting the Lalu government raised alarm bells as Kurmis and Kushwahas strong agricultural communities in central and south Bihar were feeling the brunt of caste-based violence Lalu’s Muslim-Yadav equation threatened other smaller castes within the OBC set-up Satish Kumar himself a Kurmi decided to unite against the Luv-Kush fraternity Satish said Nitish was initially against the idea of calling a caste rally but he along with Brhamnand Mandal and others persuaded him Former Lok Sabha speaker Rabi Ray Ramtahal Chaudhary Urmila Ben Patel and hundreds of other Kurmi leaders eventually attended the rally on 12 February 1994 "Nitish tried to defend Lalu in his speech and the crowd at Gandhi Maidan went berserk A few stones were hurled I appealed and announced that Nitish was like a younger brother and a true leader of the community and that they should let him speak This was the true emergence of Nitish Kumar" he recalled Eight months after that rally George Fernandes Bashishtha Narayan Singh Shakuni Chaudhary and Nitish Kumar broke ranks with Lalu and formed the Samata Party "Samata Party progressed steadily and a large chunk of OBC votes and upper castes who weren’t happy with Lalu Yadav supported the party Nitish later joined NDA and was a part of the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Cabinet" he said However Satish Kumar and Bholanath Singh once considered Nitish Kumar’s political mentors are no longer with the Bihar chief minister today Satish rued Nitish’s political opportunism and lust for power "Nitish has completed his cycle by joining NDA-UPA-NDA But he has lost the faith of Luv-Kush community He is dependent on BJP and is unable to win even two seats on his own" he said However Shaibal Gupta has a different take He believes the developmental agenda pursued by Nitish has changed the caste narratives in the last two decades and he does enjoy the support of every caste in the state Preview: After a long gap of nine years the
