We need leaders who boldly champion inclusion | June Sarpong
Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) boost creativity and profits, but progress has been slow: Today, nearly 90 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs are white males.

"When it comes to diversity and inclusion, we need bold disruptors who are uncomfortable with the status quo, even if the status quo benefits them," Sarpong says. After the talk, Modupe highlights proven strategies that increase representation and inclusion in the workplace.

Talk seems great on surface but her statements sort of contradict here and there. On one hand she is asking not to depend on technology but then saying we have great inventiveness and we should use it. What we will build with that inventiveness if not technology? But I agree that efficiency can't work in each situation and we need friends in tough times.
fuck she annoying me for no reason
