Many corporations are focused on increasing diversity and inclusion, recognizing that it fuels competitive advantage.  Research indicates that organizations with greater diversity, outperform those with less diversity.  As corporations continue to respond to changing market demands and demographics, how do you prepare for a position in the C-Suite?   What are the incentives for companies to prioritize diversity?
