What is tokenism? Thanks for asking!

Have you ever got the feeling a company or organisation is preaching equality, but it all feels a bit fake? Well, you may be witnessing what’s known as tokenism.

It’s a societal practice which is designed to prevent accusations of discrimination. It involves recruiting members of underrepresented groups to give an impression of equality. But more often than not, it’s easy to see through the facade.

Isn’t it a good thing to make minorities more visible? Which groups of people have been made into tokens in the past? What can society do better to address tokenism? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions!
