MCG on the Radio

I was interviewed last month to discuss board diversity on the KGNU radio show, PoCo in BoCo. People of Color in Boulder County (PoCo in BoCo), hosted by Nikhil Mankekar and Tracey Jones, takes a look at what it means to be a person of color advocating for equity and representation in Boulder County. According to the most recent Trends Report from the Community Foundation of Boulder County, the racial makeup of the county is as follows:

Racial/Ethnic Makeup

88% White
13% Latino (any race)
4% Asian
0.9% Black or African American
0.4% American Indian and Alaska Native
4% Some other race
3% Two or more races

However, the economic power of the two largest races of people in the county is highly disparate.

I am always excited to talk about ways in which diversity can create equal opportunities for those who have traditionally been left out of conversations and decision making processes. On the show, I talk about the purpose of a board of directors, why diversity is an asset, and ways boards can achieve board diversity. Listen to my 25 minute interview by clicking the link below.
