DEI-infused Woke: Where Meritocracy Goes to Die

Diversity-Equity-Inclusion (DEI) has become a popular term in selling the idea of “wokeness”. All three nouns denote positive ideas in principle. But is anybody asking the question, “Is America diverse, equitable, and inclusive enough already?

Regardless of the answer, the next question should be, “By whose standards do we measure DEI?

In this session SEE explores these questions and many others by looking at the influence of DEI on meritocracy, individuality, and American exceptionalism. This exploration will undoubtedly provide a very different perspective on wokeness.

ESG: The Business of Woke

From billions donated to Black Lives Matter and related causes to mandatory diversity training, corporations are financing and training a cultural decline. Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) effectively forces businesses to operate based on “social credit” scores.

SEE asks our panelists to explore the need for “social credit” and asks who set the data points to measure one’s social credit worthiness.

Wokeism in Education: They’re Coming for Your Kids

“Woke” educators and administrators infiltrated America’s education system long ago. Now tactics taught in Montessori are used to dumb down America’s students. The 3Rs, Reading Writing, and Arithmetic now compete with new 3Rs: Race essentialism, Racy sexualized instruction, and a Radical political agenda.
SEE panelists will discuss wokeism and the potential damage to education, and the return of meritocracy to the education system.

Wokeism: Saving the Planet & Killing the People

The idea of protecting the environment, ergo the planet, has been a topic of discussion for decades. Wokeism deems skeptics of climate change, “climate deniers”.
Despite cooling and warming trends that support the science of meteorology, climate extremists continue to push an agenda with no real basis in science, and meaningful way to measure activity or results as it relates to saving the planet.
This panel discusses constant moving targets, and how wokeism created fundamental distrust of the system in regards to real outcomes of some of the policies related to climate change.

Criminals: The New Protected Class

AI is here to stay. But many people question how AI will be deployed since the high-tech industry is replete with wokeism.

Further, we will provide an understanding of the vulnerabilities of AI systems, as well as the steps to take to imbue these systems with robustness and privacy.

Wokeism and Intersectionality: Creating Victims

There is a lot of talk in woke circles about diversity and equity. Wokeists claim to want to elevate minorities of all ilk. However, all minorities are not created equal or treated equally.

The panelists discuss how intersectionality pits minority groups against each other and encourages people to become a “marginalized” group.
