Ok, 1st: TOny please dont delete this post on discrimination grounds because I honestly think its a fair point.

Where are the blacks, hispanic and other races in MC? The profession seems to be populated by white, asian and indian - yet no sign of African or Latin ; anyone want to venture a guess as to why?

I am hispanic - please dont answer with petty raciscm accusations.

You talk of racial prejudice in the workplace yet have given this thread a most tactless title. Nice.

I don't agree with the original statement. Most firms I know are have staff from a variety of different backgrounds.

Ultimately the majority of people in UK firms are likely to be white, because the majority of people in the UK are white. I don't think racism is at play. Most firms genuinely hire based on academics and experience.

More than many other industries, academic achievement is highly regarded in consulting. Without wanting to open a can of worms, statistically speaking, the groups you say are under-represented don't generally perform highly in academia. But that is changing all the time, and I expect corporate diversity to continue improving over the next few years.

I'd be more concerned with the disparity in terms of the gender mix in consulting. That certainly doesn't reflect the UK's population...

From alfonso's spelling, I think he's in the US rather than the UK
