Do You See What I See?

Despite the fact that many corporations have made attracting andrecruiting people of color (POC) a top diversity priority, theseorganizations have failed to retain this talent once they are onboard. Why? It is because of the enormous gap that exists betweenthe way POC view the organizations in which they work and the waymanagers and leaders view these same organizations.
