As protests over police brutality and racial injustice continued to sweep the country this week, leaders from across the technology industry and the world picked up their pen. Snap CEO Evan Spiegel boldly called for a commission to address racism and higher taxes on the wealthy to support the underserved. Tim Cook promised Apple would do more to fight racism and support the Black community. Even former Defense Secretary James Mattis wrote a memo condemning President Trump as a threat to the Constitution.
These, and many others, were inspiring to read, each well-articulated and powerful. Yet as I read memo after memo, I found myself craving, not another memo, but rather a coordinated conversation.
