Equality editorial hits diversity issue head-on

I agree 100 percent with the June 9 editorial, “Law meant for inclusion will end up sponsoring exclusion.”

Haphazard forms of inclusion are detrimental to the institutions they attempt to influence. I agree that diversity on a board or commission is important to maintaining fair and balanced opinion sets for making the best decisions that affect an entire community. Attempting to accomplish it in such a blatantly sloppy manner undermines the means for the sake of statistics. If you’re trying to force diversity for the sake of making the math work out on paper, that’s one thing, but that is not going to be nearly as effective as a well devised plan that incorporates differing opinions based on something other than arbitrary percentages.
