“Investors, LPs, and Boards are beginning to crack down bigtime on companies that have next to no diversity because it limits your overall appeal and capability when you strategically go after a market/group.”

Are they, though? I think that might be a good development, but I wonder if it’s wishful thinking. I’ve never personally heard of an instance of investors or boards even expressing concern about diversity — let alone “cracking down,” whatever that might mean. I’m curious if you/others have.
