Synonymous with powerful, rich and usually white male entrepreneurs, Forbes is, like many media companies, being forced to evolve. Randall Lane took over as editor of the 101-year-old publisher in December of 2017, after Lewis D’Vorkin went on to run the LA Times newsroom — leaving behind a large pair of wingtips.
