We knocked on the door of IBM’s CEO Arvind Krishna today to ask him one question: “If you think Asians are over-represented in tech, will you personally step down to make room for an under-represented minority?”

Krishna runs one of the world’s biggest tech companies, and he sits on the boards of Northrop Grumman and the New York Federal Reserve. He also spoke at Davos this year.

But this man, with seemingly endless power and influence in the world, wouldn’t talk to me.
