Ursula Burns on the challenges of diversifying the boardroom

May 18, 2021 | 9:19 PM GMT
Ursula Burns says one of the challenges in diversifying the boardroom is familiarity, explaining that White woman often benefit from how comfortable majority men feel with them versus Black or Brown women. Burns added we have a “huge mountain to climb” to get White or majority men to feel comfortable with minority women. “White women are more familiar and comfortable to the decision makers than any other type of female…That level of familiarity and that level of closeness…makes it easier to make a decision…People hire people who are like them. People hire people that they’re comfortable with.”
