I wouldn’t call it a problem. I would call it a blind spot. A blind spot that Jon realized and started very actively pursuing. But there’s two types of racial blind spots. There’s active, and there’s passive. Active is you saying, “I will not hire black people or Hispanic people or females.” Passive is you going: “I’m open to everyone. I will hire anyone that comes in the door.” But you don’t realize you’re limited by your current network of who you know, and what you know is often [people like] you. When you’re cognizant of it, it’s easier to work on.
