DNC: Straight White Biological Males Need Not Apply for Tech Jobs

Straight white biological males need not apply to the Democratic National Committee’s latest job openings.

The Daily Wire’s Elliott Hamilton reports that in a recent DNC email advertising tech job openings, Data Services Manager Madeleine Leader made it clear that there’s a certain kind of person they’re not looking to hire: “cisgender straight white males.”

Leader’s email, which lists eight different job positions, states they’re looking to fill those spots with people who have “diverse voices and life experiences” so the Democrats can “secure the future of our country”:

What’s more important is that we are focused on hiring and maintain a staff of diverse voices and life experiences, something that we desperately need if we hope to secure the future of our country.

Leader explicitly mentions that the people who will help Democrats “secure the future of our country” are not cisgender (non-trans) straight white males; therefore, she would “personally” “prefer” they not be told about the job openings:

I personally would prefer that you not forward to cisgender straight white males, since they’re already in the majority.

Leader did not respond to the Daily Wire’s request for comment.

While there have been many pushes for “diversity in tech” over the years, none appear to have been as brazen as to outright say straight white males should be discouraged from applying to jobs if they meet the qualifications.
