Default DEI Company? Anyone work for one?

My CEO just sent out a email stating the results of a company wide DEI questionnaire were positive. Whatever that means.
Then, he stated he was having a group look into DEI within the Veterans working at our company.
I am bit naive, but why is anyone still looking into DEI after the negative press as of late? Is it purely financial, virtue signaling?

Your CEO has no balls and that should score the company points in the LGBTQ category.

I was kinda shocked. He is a Veteran. Submarine Nuclear Officer. Just a LCDR. so no Command Experience.
But DEI is not going to do any good here..

I agree, to a point. Work is okay right now, not great.
But it is paying the bills.

Nope. I have in the past and left. My current company is very much about hiring the highest qualified candidates.

Because they are getting pressure from the gov't. DEI and/or ESG (employee service groups) are big on their agenda to make sure it's an inclusive environment. The ESG can consist of BIPOC- bi-racial/people of color groups, Veterans groups, Gay/Bi/Trans/Queer/Nonbinary groups...all need a platform for employees to feel safe/comfortable. Considering DEI was founded on racist principles, you'll get just that, a diversity hire that will tell you how racist your company is, unconscious bias to your interview teams, employees etc.... bottom line is it's a ****ing shitshow, good luck and hopefully your CEO tries to table it as long as possible.
