Faculty scholar Jo-Ellen Pozner is quoted in an article in The Independent about Silicon Valley tech companies speaking out and taking action against bigotry, following the violence that took place in Charlottesville.

“There’s an evangelist streak to a lot of the companies that get attention,” said Pozner. “If you’re putting that front and center in your corporate mission and vision and the communications you have internally and externally, and you’re confronted with a value-based challenge - you said you’re a company that wants to make the world a better place, and now you have to do it.” (AP Photo/Steve Helber)
