The Need for New Voices in Diversity & Inclusion
“Inclusion is a small crowd and that’s part of the problem”
The Need for a More Intersectional Approach to Diversity
“It’s not a diverse group of people who are winning, I just think we have to look a lot more at intersectionality when we talk about gender interventions”
