THE AMERICAN MIRROR
Does your company reflect today's
American Values when viewed through
the New American Mirror for Corporations?
An honest comparison of your company's racial hiring percentages to the 2019 United States Census Bureau's Racial Demographic numbers can instantly reveal the gaps in your company's Diversity & Inclusion hiring results. It can also be used as an honest benchmark that reveals the opportunities your company has to mirror America by hiring more people of color.
. Is your company looking for ways to better align with today’s social movements to publically demonstrate its commitment
to equal justice and fair balance for people of color?
. Has your company taken steps like Adidas to hire 30% of their domestic new jobs with Blacks and Latinx people - so to make their new hiring better
. Has your company ever used or been awarded public / Government contracts?
. What has your company done to aggressively root out discrimination
in its ranks?
These are some of the questions today's social movements are asking. Aquaneer can help.
Increasingly, since George Floyd’s killing this year launched one of the largest participation protest movement in U.S. history, many Companies have been looking for ways to demonstrate their support for fairness and equal opportunity. At the same time, civic movements such as Black Lives Matter, The Color of Change and others are aggressively “counting” the number of “underrepresented hires” in corporations as the “new normal measurement” of a companies’ true commitment to mirror America through Diversity & Inclusion goals. This commitment is also extended to their minority supply chains.
In 1964, President Robert F. Kennedy signed into law the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Kennedy called for all companies to exercise “Simple Justice” if they use Government Funds sourced by all Americans to simply comply by not discriminating against the very people who provide the funds in the first place.

Adidas Commits To Reserve
30% of All New Domestic Hires
For People of Color
Open Roles Target Black & Hispanic/LatinX Domestic Talent
Adidas is a $26.7 Billion Dollar Global Corporation that employs 59,000 people.
According to Compliance Week (7/6/20), Adidas has committed to create a more "diverse and inclusive" workplace after the departure of their HR executive, Karen Parkin.
Earlier, on June 9, slightly over two weeks after the killing of George Floyd on May 25th, Adidas outlined several actions to improve D&I.
. Diversify The Talent Pool: min. of 30% of all
new US hires will be filled with Black &
Latinx candidates. 50% of all open positions will be filled by other minority
categories to include women & disabled.
. Investing $120 MM in Black Communities
. University Scholarships For Black Employees
. Establish an Independently Governed US
Anti-Discriminatory & Harrassment Standards.
. Establishing a Global Committee to Enhanse
Inclusion and Equity.
As US Companies search for what they can do to be apart of the solution toward racial balance and justice in their ranks in the wake of the George Floyd protest, Adidas actions can stand as a clear model of some of the actions that can be done.
Hiring more people of color generally and in the industrial sector, more engineers of color, so to mirror American Demographics (13% Black & 18% Latinx) can constitute a giant first step toward complying with the new demands on Corporations D&I to reflect solciety in this climate of social change and accountability.

"I can't find a Black candidate
to fill the job"
Recently in a Boston Globe Article (6/9/20) Dan D'Alessandro - former CEO of John Hancock, said, "in my 40 years in corporate executive suites, I must have heard a version of this phrase hundreds of times when executives were asked to hire a manager at any level". D'Alessandro's comments are echoed by CNBC's corporate data report that finds that at every career level from Operations to the Executive Board Suites, Blacks and Hispanic / Latinx trail whiles from 84 in Operations to 96% at the Exec Level.
According to D'Alessandro the excuses for not hiring Blacks are:
. "I interviewed a few Black candidates, but
they really weren't qualified".
. "There just are not enough Black executives
trained in that field."
. "There was one good Black candidate, but
there is no way we could retain them, given
how rare they are."
CNBC's investigation of companies that have
underrepresented minorities in its ranks, finds negative consequences from not hiring diversity.
These consequences include:
. Investors Ditching Their Stock
. Company's May Experience Failure To
Acquire and Retain Employee Talent
. A Lack of Diversity Can Stifle Innovation.
