As a co-founder of a tech firm, our company employed the best people we could get in the field from nationalities and backgrounds that reflected the world's diversity. Our only criterion was whether or not the employee had the technical skills to do the job.
I remember having a laugh at the time when I saw a University of Toronto Woman's
Studies professor claim in a TV interview that her students weren't
getting good jobs "because of racism and sexism." The U of T professor obviously couldn't comprehend that her students weren't getting good jobs because their degrees were in Women's Studies.
The discussion in the video below about 'grade inflation' is quite accurate. I briefly dated a U of Toronto Law professor a number of years ago and back then, she talked about how she was afraid of how her students rated her, as the university considered that in their evaluation of professors. To maintain that favorable student rating, she would make things easier for them. Long gone are the "Paper Chase" days when it was the students who feared the professors.
