Positive disruption is one of the most difficult things for us to understand, says Bozoma Saint John, chief marketing officer of Endeavor, in her talk at Leadercast 2020—Positive Disruption. “How do you do it in a way that will make you better without affecting and truly negatively disrupting everything around you?” she asks. For her, positive
disruption means constantly challenging her interactions with people and her career.

I look forward to living in a world where people are not judged based on the color of their skin, their gender their social status/wealth or their sexual orientation, but instead on the content of their character. This is something that starts at the individual and then grows throughout communities and continues to grow. The only way this happens if there are those who work for that in the right ways. Educate others through facts and real life stories rather than push others out or push others down.

From her perspective of being a minority woman with a father as a role model who did not let a crippling injury keep him from becoming a world champion, I understand why Bozoma Saint John defines positive disruption as "constantly challenging her interactions with people and her career". This constant challenge of people and career interactions is within the context of the persistent glass ceiling for women, in addition to structural racism and implicit bias. Not surprisingly, many studies have found that representation from communities of color is disproportionately lacking among executives.
