Wisdom from Laura: The next generation of industry innovators are here, but are we listening? The norm is to expect our execs to lead the way and forge our industry standards, but what if instead we look to the rising ones? With fresh eyes and ears, we could break the glass ceiling often caused by age, race, and gender. We could change the cultural parameters of our industry for years to come. So let's listen, take a chance on them, empower them and ultimately provide a platform for them to flourish, and so with it, all of us.
