I can personally relate with this episode. As a hispanic product designer, my path has been very different than my colleagues, such as having parents that do not speak much english. This has been a strength because I am emphatic to the millions of immigrants who use phone apps like whatsapp but are ignored by hundreds of apps that fail to add a "choose your language" setting. Many of these problems are simple to solve but are never addressed. I'm glad to see minorities represented alongside women in these conversations about diversity in the workplace.

I literally had this discussion some coworkers 4 months. I am happy to hear it is being looked from a non-miniroity's point of view. At the end of the day it's not about hiring the best candidates from the job, sometime there is value in having a diverse team from a pool of talent that would be thought of as less ideal.
