Congratulations to Altimeter Growth 2! AGCB went public yesterday led by an incredibly diverse board of directors with a female majority. We’re excited to see such inclusive representation from companies in The Board Challenge community.

1 female director is so 2020. 2021 is the year of #femalemajority! Seriously - setting gender / diversity aside - the real take is it is amazing board stacked w talent, experience & diverse opinions. @OperatorCollect @theboardlist @LynchAnita @lexir @anuhariharan @Rich_Barton

3/ A national savings / investment program will dramatically level the playing field. It will educate, excite and inspire those who would never have access to the stock market. And @ $2000 per child would cost only $8 B per year - a tiny investment with massive returns...

2/ A one way acct - you can add but can't subtract until retirement. You own it. Your account on your phone. You watch it grow. Research is overwhelming - those who have savings tend to save and invest more - with positive benefits to mental health and well being.

@altcap on @HalftimeReport says government should give every American $2,000 at birth that they can't withdraw for decades and watch the value compound over time for use later in life.

@chamath calls it a "fabulous idea"

1/ Every child should share in the upside of America. We will be proposing to the Biden-Harris team a Robinhood like mobile savings / investment acct for every child born in America - seeded with $2000 - invested broadly on their behalf in our equity mkts.

Trump is a fuckwad and total disgrace to himself, his family and our country. But America has now survived two simultaneously plagues - Trump and COVID - and is emerging stronger than ever. I have never had more confidence in the resilience of our Republic...

We can't let this moment pass us by without taking action. We've launched a pledge for U.S. boards of directors to add a Black director within a year.

Learn more about #TheBoardChallenge:

1/ Our companies and communities are stronger when we tap into the amazing and diverse talent around us. Every company should TAKE THE PLEDGE - diversify your Board - it is not a talent problem - it is a problem of inertia and imagination.
