The [email protected] is already here. Breakthrough technologies, social movements, globalization, polarizing politics, and shifting values have pushed us to an inflection point. We can either harness all talent at work to intentionally propel ourselves toward a more inclusive future, or succumb to forces that will make our very workplaces obsolete.
