Industry wants diversity of ethnic groups, racial groups, and gender
for political gain, but not in the talent pool.  They have a need, they
fill it with folks of expertise and are not very willing to consider
broadly trained people as candidates to be trained for the need.  Once
the need is over, it can be over for the individual.  

Innovative ideas still come primarily from independent entrepeneurs and
academics.
