Scouts to Employ Diversity Chief on £75,000-a-Year

The Scouts are set to allocate £75,000 a year towards employing an Equity, Diversity and Inclusion officer, amid concerns of wokery and transgender activism. The Mail has the story.

The hefty salary was disclosed in an advert posted on the Scouts website which says they are looking for their next “Head of EDI” to manage a team of nine and work a 35-hour week, potentially from home, “with regular travel”.

But critics have questioned whether the Scouts should spend such a large amount of resources on the role following concerns that EDI is being used to spread trans activist ideas within the organisation.

Maya Forstater, Chief Executive of feminist campaign group Sex Matters, who was previously an assistant Cub Scout leader, said: “…they have gone wild on the issue of gender identity. They are doing what everyone else is doing and as soon as you wave a rainbow flag they forget about safeguarding issues and their policies on trans kids are all ‘affirm, affirm, affirm’.

“All of that is driven by a combination of EDI, people at headquarters and the gay, lesbian and trans Scouts group.”

This latest EDI vacancy follows the Scouts announcing on networking website LinkedIn last August that they were recruiting eight new EDI staff.
