An exploration of apathy and selfishness in society - from online harassment to violence against minorities

MSNBC/NCB news anchor Richard Lui's experience as a grandchild of Asian immigrants has influenced his views on diversity, inclusion, and the "Model Minority Myth." His recent book, Enough About Me: The Unexpected Power of Selflessness, addresses the United States' "selfish pandemic - a time where hate and violence have become cheap." National Journal President Kevin Turpin has guided the organization through monumental change - including a reinvigorated push for diversity and inclusion initiatives. He is one of the leaders of the Diversity in Government Relations Coalition, which aims to improve diversity on K Street. As two leading voices in the United States' discussion on diversity, equity, and inclusion, Mr. Liu and Mr. Turpin provide unique perspectives on inclusive technology - from process to product.

In 2021, the German Marshall Fund of the United States has embarked on a deeper exploration of the strategies for building inclusive societies across all markers of diversity. The Stakeholder Influence on Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity (SIIDE) Transatlantic Dialogue Series examines the ways societies on both sides of the Atlantic look at policy innovations that advance equity and the need to reverse policies that directly or indirectly have contributed to the disenfranchisement of citizens. 

In this third iteration of the Transatlantic Dialogue Series, GMF will host filmmaker, author, MSNBC/NBC news anchor, and journalist Richard Lui in conversation with National Journal President Kevin Turpin for an exchange on inclusivity in the technology sector and meaningful inclusivity in society at large.


  • Richard Lui, MSNBC/NBC News Anchor and Author of Enough About Me: The Unexpected Power of Selflessness

Opening Remarks:
