Two events caught my attention in the last few days. The first was a Bloomberg interview with Alan Jope, CEO of global consumer goods conglomerate, Unilever. In the interview, Jope mentioned that it was his “dream to see a woman or someone from a minority group take over from him as CEO” when he steps down.
The second was the announcement of senator Kamala Harris as Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s running mate for the upcoming US presidential election. Harris makes history as the first black and female candidate to be running for the office of vice president.
