Today’s Hatchcast is Part Two of our special Diversity Is More Than a Buzzword miniseries. The interview you’re about to hear was recorded in July, about a week after the interview with Shaniqua Davis. (If you haven't already, check out Part One right now. It’s worth it.)In all of 2020’s tumult & uncertainty, the Hatchcast team decided to examine the subject of diversity. We wanted to find ways for entrepreneurs to see the lay of the land through perspectives listeners might not otherwise see. As a society, change only happens when we engage in perspective-taking. With perspective, we make better decisions. This two-part miniseries is intended to help one think through intentional decisions about company culture & the roles startups play in creating a better, more just, fair, & equitable world — for all of us.Our guest today is William Horton Anderson. William is the Assistant Director for Academic & Student Affairs for the Eli Broad College of Business’s Full-Time MBA Program.
