unPlanned, Kendall Square Association president C.A. Webb joins us on this episode of unPlanned for a look at the most innovative square mile on the planet.

There is a difficult road ahead as the life sciences and technology companies really grapple with diversity, equity and inclusion in the aftermath of George Floyd's murder and the nationwide protests that have ensued, and she is uniquely situated to give perspective on what that journey will look like.
