Since George Floyd's murder and the sudden Corporate America "wokeness," I (black guy) have been routinely contacted by unacquainted Partners who explicitly state something to the effect "Client X wants diversity, so we'd like you on this deal..."

You don't have to overtly state that I'm the quota.

My last post was taken down, so I’ll restate my question here. I found out that someone was terminated from PwC for having a foot fetish and an online presence being honest about this fetish.

Just want to know what PwC’s stance is on ethics and wrongful termination when it comes to obscure situations such as this one.
