Just one year into her role as Wall Street's first ever female CEO, Jane Fraser’s appointment to the only banking board with more women than men has been warm, with markets deeming her at least as capable a leader and inspiration as the men that came before her. But with around 40% of women still seeing no viable path to Executive (Finsia, 2021), finding new women to replace them from lower ranks remains a challenge.

Forget bend it like Beckham. Aerliast for The Box NYC, instructor at Brooklyn's Body and Pole and Underground Cabaret heartthrob Jacob McKee (pictured here) - like so many outstanding queer talents - has made his decision.

I think therefore I am: Welcome the reality of Clarketech

Across an industry charging £8bn a year to talk 'D&I', one irrelevant flicker of light is talking 'change'. Is that even a product? The answer is no, but we changed all that. Now clocking 9 world records for change including birthing 2 entirely new sciences, still nobody has asked us to fix their D&I dilemma. It's as if they don't want change. Too bad. Welcome to the future of all Human-output Business - the creation of Sapience (I think) and Clarketech (therefore I am). Change. We're ready when you are.
