When Emmanuel Acho decided to make a video about Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man after the George Floyd protests, he had no idea how quickly it would go viral. Over 40 million views later, this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8jUA7JBkF4 meant to educate and inform Americans about racism, social injustice, system racism and more has turned into a series of YouTube conversations and a bestselling book.

Carla Harris Vice Chairman, Morgan Stanley https://www.ravespeakers.com/carla-harris and a noted authority on Leadership and Diversity (75+ virtual keynote speeches on the subject). As Carla shares, “”If you are a powerful, impactful, and influential leader, you must be intentional about diversity because we are all vulnerable to unconscious bias.” In her timely and important keynote, Carla spells out the business case for diversity and inclusion and she notes that diversity, or the lack thereof, can have a huge impact on an organization’s go-to-market strategy. Diversity isn’t nice to have, it’s a must. It should be a the forefront of every business decision.
