“I’d love to say bias and discrimination don’t exist and that we’ve come to a point where it doesn’t need to be challenged, but sadly that is not yet the case. In business and in life, many underrepresented people and groups are still in search of inclusivity. And for as long as it continues to remain out of reach, then we must all stand up, challenge the status quo, remove artificial barriers, and #breakthebias.“
