In most parts of the US, a basketball program paid to have more white players would be called a private school. Nothing wrong with those...

I for one could also imagine myriad other ways to pump money into schools that would advance my goals better, but clearly my goals, and yours, and perhaps those of society do not line up perfectly with those of Ye Giant Company at issue here.

Women are of course different from men in ways perceivable by corporations who do hiring. The justification could be as simple as helping stoke a larger female share of STEM candidates, so the company can be as or more discriminating in hiring for talent while maintaining diversity goals that help avoid Github-like workplace cultures (and the resulting productivity hiccups they create). There's really no need to pin programmes like this on the hat of misguided liberalism.
