MGM's Cirque Du Diversity

The story of Steve Wynn's Miss Spectacular is most certainly a well known one. It supposedly had everything one could want out of a Las Vegas-based, Broadway-style musical: Steve Wynn, music by Jerry Herman, showgirls, and more Steve Wynn.
However, have you heard about MGM's home grown musical? The one that all employees are being forced to see for mandatory HR diversity training exclusively experiencing all by themselves?
Well, if you haven't, allow me to introduce you to MGM Resorts Presents Inspiring Our World: Diversity Training Evolved! Really rolls right off the tongue, doesn't it?
Much like the aforementioned spectacular, it has everything you could dread about a half- baked mandatory HR diversity training program: inspirational songs, saccharinely emotional personal testimonials, Jim Murren in a muscle fit long-sleeved MGMRI logo polo, renewable energy-themed rap songs, and Swahili phrases that can only translate to "Yeah, the urban planning minor who thought up CityCenter came up with another bright idea." Not only is entertaining, it's engaging. It's even inspiring.
This is any front line employee's worst nightmare; the kind of thing that only someone sitting in an off-site, non-customer facing office building would think it could inspire or engage an employee who's been worn thin by low rolling frat boys playing $5 blackjack at Excalibur. This isn't a "Henry V" call to arms motivator. This is a mandatory high school assembly about saving yourself for marriage. This is hackneyed force fed Big Belly Buffet corporate psychobabble bullshit. But five minutes of it sure is funny to watch.
So, please enjoy!
And might I suggest that next year they mount an all-female version of "Sweeney Todd" starring Bellagio's blackjack dealers...
