New research shows women and visible minorities might suffer at work when they try to help their peers.

    This expression 'white male head up corporate diversity efforts' has been thrown around as a way of discounting the voice of women and non-whites, in particular Blacks and Hispanics or people of other ethnic origins who do not represent 'white male'.

    For hundreds of years, white men have held power and very few have used their power to effect change and recognize the individual talent, skill and ability of other who are not like themselves. So, why would a white male heading up diversity make a difference? This is the reason when the a diversity job is posted, white males (except those with a disability or an LGBT) do not apply. The article does not speak about white males in this context. It seems to assume that the white male is not in the 'diversity' mix, which is incorrect.
