“If I'm an organization that agrees we would like to have a more representative workforce of the actual population, and if I agree that perhaps maybe the efforts I have so far have not risen to the occasion, then I would also want to agree that I might want to think and try new ways to do that, versus using the tried and true playbook of what I've always done because what I've always done hasn't always worked. I think that is the starting point for the conversation.”
