"Diversity isn’t about getting rid of all of the white people and just bringing in people of color. You need diverse ideas, diverse approaches, and that’s where great ideas come from. If you surround yourself with people who just think like you think, where you are gonna go from there? You need someone who is going to challenge you and give you a different perspective on how to do something. And that’s not happening in a lot of these rooms."
