He has a distinct perspective that he has earned through writing his book profiling over 100 black professionals, working in economic development for the Pittsburgh region, and leading conversations about diversity at ADP.
Aaron and Brian also cover the rise of Juneteenth into the national conversation and effective ways to market & message these important ideas.
