I really enjoyed listening to Christine! nice storyline!
A nice episode. Apart from the detour into conflation about diversity of skin colour and gender equating to diversity of concepts and skill sets. Again, if you set a PC filter and prioritise picking an investment opportunity because someone is black or female or both rather than based on how nice the product, squad and plan is, then no matter how well you do on aggregate, you are behaving in a fiscally negligent manner and could be sued by your fund investors; unless of course, you state that intention prior to investment. In that topic, your investors are doing part investment and party charity work. Likewise, if an investor chooses based on preferring white recipients or those who went to a certain school over the finest product, squad and plan then they are also being fiscally negligent and could be sued. So it's annoying that both these accomplished recipients here on this podcast praise this prejudiced investment walkthrough as if its a virtue. Actually allow's see if this comment is deleted like my last ones were.
