A twenty-something woman stands at the back of a conference room. Multiple older men approach her and, mistaking her for an assistant, ask her for coffee or directions to the bathroom. This young woman was Amelia Green, now MD at AlixPartners. She wasn’t an assistant - she was getting ready to give a presentation about diversity and inclusion - and opens by calling out the men on their age bias towards her. She talks you through her experience leading teams of people older than herself, and how she earned her seat at the table with respect, not defiance.
