They also discuss Greg's insight into the most important factors for making progress around Diversity and Inclusion, highlighted in his upcoming book, ‘BOND: Keys to Inclusion and Belonging’ as well as Greg’s response to recent derogatory articles around DEI and the significance of rewiring the system to enforce real change.
