Where is the "diversity" in a jobs fair for blacks and Asians?

Here is a definition of the word "diversity":

the condition of having or being composed of differing elements : variety; especially : the inclusion of different types of people (as people of different races or cultures) in a group or organization

Note the words "differing elements" - emphasis on "differing".

So how come a recruitment and information fair for blacks and Asians can be called a "Diversity Fair"? Where is the diversity in events solely for non-white people? A workforce could hardly be described as "diverse" if it consisted solely of coloured could it?

More on this fair here.
