Get With The Times

Lynnie Zulu paints an interesting picture for the Sunday Review cover of the NY Times highlighting the benefits of diversity. Here's a taste of the insightful article to put this in context:

 

"What President Trump doesn't seem to have considered is that diversity doesn't just sound nice, it has tangible value. Social scientists find that homogeneous groups like his cabinet can be less creative and insightful than diverse ones."

 

Here's to diversity and progress! Thanks Lynnie.
