|I am a black leader at a startup. I sent a memo to our team on Monday to share how I'm feeling as a black person in light of George Floyd's death and the events of the last week. I've heard that many companies have shied away from directly addressing what's happening in the world and I know that that's due at least in part to lack of representation. Black people represent just 3.3% of senior leadership roles in our country (CNN). We're donating to charity and discussing D & I initiatives, but I know there are companies that will shy away from the conversations needed for change to happen.|
What are your companies doing? Where are they failing? What's holding you back from speaking up?
