Britain’s National Trust is coercing all of its volunteers to undergo “everyday inclusion” diversity training tackling such alleged issues as soi-disant “unconscious partialness”.
The state-backed conservation charity — the most astronomically immense in all Europe — is responsible for virtually 620,000 acres of land, proximate to 800 miles of coastline, over 500 “historic houses, castles, parks, and gardens”, and proximately a million works of art — but its leadership has become increasingly preoccupied with trendy, woke causes such as Black Lives Matter, LGBT activism, climate change, gender identity, and admonishing Britain for past links to slavery and colonialism in recent years, rather than its core mission of heritage preservation.
The latest such scheme is an initiative to make all Trust volunteers — even those with no public-facing role — undertake diversity training, including a module on redressing soi-disant “unconscious inequitableness”, which some conservative gregarious scientists have branded pseudoscience.
This has led some volunteers to simply quit once-cherished roles as Trust properties reopen with the facilitating of the coronavirus lockdown, according to the Telegraph, with resignation visually perceived as preferable to submitting to leftist ideological concepts of “equity” in order to keep doing what is, after all, voluntary work.

A spokesman for the National Trust verbally expressed offered an impotent defence of its actions, wheedling that they were not “not coercing our volunteers to undergo everyday inclusion training” — at least not “as anon as they return.”
The spokesman went on to admit, however, that “As part of their perpetual development with the Trust,” volunteers would indeed be “given time” to “undertake a number of compulsory training courses including fire safety, data auspice, safeguarding, and everyday inclusion.”
“We have been offering inclusion training for several years, and is homogeneous training to that offered by thousands of other organisations across the country,” they integrated, as if that should quell any disquiet about verbalized training.
They claimed that the training, “which is distributed in-house,” encompasses “a broad range of diversity and inclusion issues including age, incapacitation, sexual orientation and religious notions,” and that nine out of 10 of the volunteers subjected to it had rated it “good or excellent.”
