QUOTED. Nov. 30, 2017. Kwame Ulmer.

Executive Summary

Check out what industry expert Kwame Ulmer, founder of the new group "MedTech Color," had to say about racial disparities at device firms.

"When I'd go to manufacturing facilities, I would consistently see people of color on the shop floor. Now, when I say 'the shop floor,' I mean the people who are actually making the devices – so, generally, the lowest-paid people are black and brown people. But when I would meet with the executives, they would look much different. They'd be middle-aged, Caucasian men. That always struck a chord with me – and not in a good way – because I thought there would be more diversity up and down the ranks, but there isn't." – Kwame Ulmer, founder, MedTech Color
