Male, pale and stale university professors are to be given “reverse mentors” to teach them about unconscious bias, under a new Government funded scheme.
Under the project, white men in senior academic posts will be assigned a junior female colleague from an ethnic minority as a mentor.
It’s kind of funny in a very creepy sort of way. The article suggests this will be uncomfortable for the pale, stale men but imagine the discomfort of the poor female mentors.
I need a new series titled “Utter Blethering Ridiculousness” on this blog.
