With many offices currently preparing for their staff Christmas parties, I
though I’d share this gem with you. An email was recently sent out to all staff
at DIMIA about the upcoming staff Christmas party and informing them that the
theme this year would be ‘Cowboys and Injuns’ This email was quickly followed by
another one announcing that the theme for this year’s DIMIA Christmas party has
now been changed to just ‘Fancy Dress’, along with an apology to those who were
offended by the previous theme and stating that ‘…there was no intention to draw
on cultural or racial sensitivities.’ The best bit is that the original email was approved by the Secretary for
distribution.
