I just finished watching the BBC Documentary "Breaking Into the Elite" and it really shocked me how much class plays an impact on the recruitment for jobs like IB, CO, but most of all PE! 70% of PE staff in the UK at privately educated when only 7% of the population is!
I understand as mentioned in the documentary that if you speak in a certain way then you are more likely to be viewed as "polished", and therefore have a higher chance of breaking into the industry.
Just thought it was an interesting thing to watch and I believe it brings to light that most forms of diversity are largely superficial (gender, race, religion, sexuality) - things that don't determine intelligence but could mandate experiences?
Wondering if anyone else had any thoughts on the subject?
