1) Why is a lack of "DEI" a "challenge", unless someone punishes you for it? And who is going to punish you for it, and how, and why?

3) "Talent". That favorite grandiose American word. If you lower the entrance bar, how do you separate the wheat of "talent" from the chaff of "lack of talent"?
4) Why are Google interviews — or interviews at other FAANG companies — said to be so hard? These sure qualify as "larger firms"?
