  24. PC.  “The Diversity Paradox:” 8-10-17.  “Notable & Quotable: The ‘Diversity Paradox”  (Evolutionary psychologist Geofrey Miller in “The Google Memo:  Four Scientists Respond,” Quillette.com, Aug.7):  “For what it‘s worth, I think that almost all of the Google memo’s empirical claims are scientifically accurate. Moreover, they are stated quite carefully and dispassionately.  Its key claims about sex differences are especially well-supported by large volumes of research across species, cultures, and history… Here, I just want to take a step back from the memo controversy, to highlight a paradox at the heart to  the ‘equality and diversity’ dogma that dominates American corporate life.  The memo didn’t address this paradox directly, but I think it’s implicit in the author’s critique of Google’s diversity programs.  This dogma relies on two core assumptions:  > The human sexes and races have exactly the same minds, with precisely identical distribution of traits, aptitudes, interests, and motivations;  therefore , any inequalities of outcome in hiring and promotion must be due to systemic sexism and racism;  > The human sexes and races have such radically different minds, backgrounds, perspectives, and insight, that companies must increase their demographic diversity in order to be competitive;  any lack of demographic diversity must be due to short-sighted management that favors groupthink.  The obvious problem is that these two core assumptions are diametrically opposed.
