The data on anything from wage/wealth gaps to employment in the fastest growing industries, like technology or commercial development show that the US still has a long way to go.

“More now than ever, private businesses have the greatest ability and potential to create the social and economic changes needed to assert America’s continuing role as the world’s leader in democracy. I saw a partnership of World’s Best Connectors with a powerful, like-minded business and education innovator like could facilitate access and equity for all Americans.”
