Corporations spend plenty of time talking about diversity, but many of
them are having the wrong conversations. It's true that there aren't
enough women or ethnic and racial minorities in C-level positions, but
there's more to diversity than filling top-level jobs with token
employees. It's time for corporations to really think about why they
need underrepresented groups to lead them.
Recently the Physicians Medical Forum (PMF), an African-American
physician retention and recruitment non-profit organization, hosted a a
day-long, tuition-free seminar to encourage the increase of Black
students attending medical school. The goal was to continue to help
boost the numbers of Black doctors.
