I think "Diversity" was an old wooden ship .. Any employer that takes federal funds is responsible for meeting certain demographics within their hiring profile. In other words, if you are a female from the Sioux indian reservation you will be hired yesterday even if you can not do the job. Have to love America

They can't discriminate you for race, gender, sexual orientation, etc...

That being said if you have two candidates who have identical grades and background, only difference is one is a white male and another is an African American female then I think they would pick her first

I remember reading a while back that part of the reasoning for hiring OTS was to help meet the diversity requirement. Apparently CTI and VRA just pumps out white dudes left and right.

I got my TOL 8 months ago for ZAU. I did my interview with the Air Traffic manager at Midway, seems like a great guy to work with. Great view of downtown Chicago from the tower..
