Jonas W. Gadson, The most positive, powerful, and purposeful, program on the planet. Jonas W. Gadson served as coordinator of diversity initiatives until cutbacks forced him into a different position within the company. Although Gadson feels that senior management is committed to diversity, he wonders if the commitment has filtered down to middle management. “There is a big blockage there. Too often middle managers don’t want to use it, and are affected by the media. They look at affirmative action, managing diversity programs and quotas, and simply tie them altogether,” he says.
