Diversity Beyond the Checkbox

Geoffrey Moore: Connect with a Diverse World or Become Marginal

Podcasts Dec 1, 2020

Author of the groundbreaking book Crossing The Chasm and advisor to technology enterprises including Google and Salesforce, Geoffrey Moore joins the TDM's Kurt Merriweather on Diversity: Beyond the Checkbox podcast to talk about the importance of DEI in driving innovation. The episode is a follow-up to Moore’s 2019 article about diversity as a competitive advantage. He argues that disruption necessitates a diverse talent base, helping us look both outward and inward simultaneously and through multiple lenses. Remember that Moore wrote this before the pandemic, before George Floyd’s death and before the drastic economic changes that have rocked 2020. Hear his innovative perspective now as we move towards 2021.
