Diversity is a multi-billion dollar industry that has led to women and people of color having greater access to jobs and experiences historically and presently thwarted by systematic racism, gender-bias, and more. As diversity initiatives grow, the data suggests that well meaning goals of inclusion and equity are floundering. We explore these ideas with Pamela Newkirk, PhD, author of Diversity Inc.: The Failed Promise of a Billion-Dollar Business and Clyde Ford author of Think Black, a memoir about his father John Stanley Ford, the first black software engineer at IBM.
