Are “diversity and inclusion” all smoke and mirrors? What does one do when corporations come to the realization and say, “Hey, I am racist”? Is there a latent hypocrisy in corporate America, who will say one thing, publicly promising to change, but then go on to do something else, perpetuating a homogenous status quo?
These are the concepts and scenarios discussed when Fair360, formerly DiversityInc CEO, Carolynn Johnson sat down with The Daily Show’s Roy Wood Jr. on the first episode of FINTECH.TV’s newly launched series, “Faces of Race.”
Johnson discussed the business benefits of diversity and inclusion, which she believes is a moral imperative as much as it is a fiscal one. As Johnson puts it, “[diversity and inclusion] is not just the right thing to do, it’s about sustainability, competitive advantage and profitability.”
