“Built In recently held a panel discussion about the state of DEI in tech — on the heels of publishing our report of the same name — featuring three panelists, including Christy Pruitt-Haynes, global head of talent & performance at the NeuroLeadership Institute. In this edited excerpt from the conversation, Pruitt-Haynes shares advice for leaders seeking to realize lasting change. Her concept of ‘‘The Parade Effect” sheds light on why leaders have blind spots when confronted with employees’ experiences. You’ll never watch a parade in the same way. You’ll probably never lead in the same way either.”
