Diversity Disconnect Research
In 2017, the study “Bridging the Talent Disconnect: Charting Pathways to Future Growth” identified significant structural disconnects between academia and industry. The follow-up 2019 qualitative study “Bridging the Diversity Disconnect: Charting More Inclusive Pathways to Growth” uncovered the same structural disconnects when analyzing this issue through a diversity lens, specifically racial diversity.
