Rome, July 2005 - On a sunny afternoon at the WFP headquarters in Rome, 20 WFP staff are standing in a neat row outside the building, each one holding a card inscribed with a terse statement of identity.
"I am an uneducated driver," says one card. "I am a professional woman with many partners," says another. And a third: "I am an HIV-positive single mother." In response to a series of questions, some staff move a step forward while others stay behind.
