As a serial entrepreneur, I agree wholeheartedly that there is no better time than now to start a business. The level of creativity and talent in our community is abundantly apparent on social media.
I will argue though that these larger corporations (twitter and Facebook for example) are at fault when it comes to the lack of diversity and inclusion development at their companies. I think their is a distinction between companies that are stuck in there ways with no desire to improve the numbers and those that just don’t know how. It is also more difficult to impact the corporate culture the larger the corporation is.
We can’t give these larger corporation an “out” when it comes to D&I, but we can definitely create our own “in.”
Good read, Nkem!
