    What’s holding back Black advancement to leadership roles?

    One more thing executives need to do, especially at large corporations, is step aside. Symbolic gestures of urging subordinate hiring managers far removed from the top to do better is great. But true progress will be achieved when a C-suite leader gives up their own role for a person of color. Otherwise this is "do as I say not as I do" behavior. And simply creating new executive roles to fill them with minorities doesn't count. It's cliche but true. The best leaders lead by example.
