#94 If You’re “Qualified,” You Make The List

Sam and I kick off the Fall 2019 season exploring what happened with the Forbe’s America’s 100 Most Innovative Leaders list, whether it truly reflects merit or, instead, historical privilege, and whether the “man box” had a role.

In this season, we’ll continue exploring how we all contribute to and are affected by the man box, and where it shows up in current events.

Let us know what you think!
