Katica Roy, the co-founder of Denver startup Pipeline, has a striking take on workforce diversity efforts and improving professional opportunities for women in advanced industries.

“We are facing a workforce shortage. In the U.S., we’ll have 5 million jobs we cannot fill,” Roy said. “It’s a macro-economic issue, and it’s a micro-economic issue when you look at your company.”
