Sigh.
I get paid something like $30/hour, if you figure everything out.

If you follow this logic, a meeting with 30 of my colleagues costs the university roughly $900 per hour.

What meeting, if any, is worth that kind of expense? Sigh ...

I must say, I never looked at it like that. I've been trying to come up with a meeting that IS worth that, and I can't...but it IS 4:30 in the morning.

I doubt there is any meeting worth 900$ an hour. At some companies (GM, Ford Dow) a meeting like that would be even more.

Actually, you can almost justify that one ... if the training is well done.

Mainly, I object to spending an hour in a meeting where the total information content could be more effectively expressed in a two-page memorandum ...

A lot of diversity training is worthless IMHO. And it covers the wrong stuff. And a company can discriminate against whoever they want to, and it's justified. They just say "you're not what we were looking for" failing to mention they were looking for a black female or a white male. Or somebody nice to look at in the office, regardless if they can do the job.
