Speaking of diversity hires…

As we are learning – again – from the collapse of the Silicon Valley Bank, merit and ability still top ethnicity and preference when there’s a job to be done.

One Facebook user, Paul Tucker, wrote: ‘The [SVB] Board of Directors is filled with diversity hires who are there because of their woke credentials.
They all have pronouns in their bios, which are filled with corporate newspeak.
The Head of Financial Risk and Model Risk Management was this nutbag: Jay Ersapah.
This is what happens when you allow people to manage your money based on woke principles instead of on their actual skill and competence.
I hope the depositors at this failed bank enjoy all of that diversity, because diversity is your strength, eh?’

Nutbag may be a tad strong, but Ms Ersapah certainly has a problem with correctly ordering priorities.

While SVB was circling the drain, Jay Ersapah, the boss of Financial Risk Management at SVB’s UK branch, launched woke initiatives, including the company’s first month-long Pride campaign and a new blog emphasizing mental health awareness for LGBTQ+ youth. “As a queer person of color and a first-generation immigrant from a working-class background, there were not many role models for me to ‘see’ growing up,” said Ersapah.

You’re not exactly a role model for future generations either, Jay.

And just wait until you meet your 2023 Santa.
