Christian Lanng in conversation with Josuel Plasencia

July 24, 2020 Christian Lanng

I recently spoke with Josuel Plasencia, Co-Founder and COO of Forefront, a company that specialises in helping companies find diverse talent. A thought leader in millennial engagement and diversity, Josuel has been featured in NBC, ABC, and the Wall Street Journal. Recently, he was selected to the Forbes 30 Under 30 list.

Josuel and I spoke about the challenges facing minorities and people of color in the tech industry, the importance of second chances, and how he uses his own background and friends as a constant source of inspiration for the work he does. Oh, and he shared with us what his mom said when he told her he was quitting his lucrative consulting career to start his own business.

See who else I'm speaking with in the coming weeks and join the conversation.
