VIDEO: Diversity A Managerial Ideology

National Association of Scholars

“Diversity is the reigning social and political ideal of our age. It is the public ideology of the country’s most powerful state and business institutions.” Thus begins political scientist Darel Paul in his 2018 article, “Diversity: A Managerial Ideology,” a perceptive account of the reigning orthodoxy in higher education and all other elite institutions.

This event features Darel Paul, a professor of political science at William College, author of From Tolerance to Equality: How Elites Brought America to Same-Sex Marriage, and a self-described scholar of contemporary elite ideologies. He will be joining the Right Ideas series to discuss his work on the rise of contemporary social justice ideologies.

This event is hosted by John Sailer, Senior Fellow at the National Association of Scholars.
