Their job is to find the best person for the job. Period.
I have a small stake in MSFT stock which I will be selling today. It ain't a good sign when the Board plays games with such an important decision.
So white guys should just self-identify as whatever skin color/gender/sexual preference the board needs to hire.
How can this not be against discrimination laws?

The message is clear: Your personal efforts and capabilities are meaningless. Choose to be born the right color and sex (or change either/both) and how to work the system to exploit those.
Talent, ability and work ethic not needed.
Whites need not apply.
Their shoddy products will become even worse.
The day microsoft hires a person of color or woman as CEO because of the person’s color or gender is the day I unload my microsoft stock. I am not interested in diversity of color. I am only interested in one color- green.
white males are not a protected class and are fair game for discrimination based on race and gender.
Intel tried this with Rene James along with BK.
The company may never recover from the damage
Big Mike XY is available. Leftist, black, angry, transexual. Perfect candidate for an affirmative action, figurehead job.
Message to good young white and asian males is to work someplace else.
I will do the same. Hopefully I will no longer be a resident in California when I do. I have no interest in paying California any additional tax.
Kodak did the same crap. See what happened to them. Studied that in business class during college. Displaced the white workers with minorities. Now with blm, it could only get worse and worse.
I unloaded my shares today. The writing is on the wall.
MS needs to get ahead of the curve and hire goats and chimps.
Will they pay me $235.00 a day like the Ukrainians did Biden? I have no experience either so I am well suited except my father is not currently in public office. Sadly, he’s dead. Maybe still voting Democrat though. Will that help?
Another good reason to use Linux.
How is this different from saying they would only hire a white male?
