What Is Apple's Incentive?

A few days ago I posted on the Apple Shareholder proposal about diversifying it's board and executive team. Here' the thing:
Good afternoon, everyone, and thank you very much for joining us. Today, we’re reporting Apple’s strongest financial results ever. We generated all-time record quarterly revenue of 75.9 billion dollars in the December quarter, in line with our expectations, and have 2 percent over last year’s blockbuster results.
Apple has just had it's "all time record quarterly revenue" with the "diversity" it has. What incentive does it have to make any changes whatsoever? I'm not arguing that black folks ought not be hired by Apple or aggressively recruited by Apple. What I am saying is what financial leverage, what performance leverage can the diversity crowd have to show that if Apple doesn't do what it asks, that Apple will suffer?

This is the stark, hard core, stone cold fact that many have to deal with. Without the blacks and the women, these companies make large bank and great products (when they do). When companies ride the SJW bandwagon they get like, oh, Twitter. Who wants to be the one who runs their company into the ground while saying "I was doing the right thing"?

Even the people who made that the latest Star Wars. The companies are practically 100% white. Bodega may be on screen but folks who look like him are STILL absent in the animation companies. Why? Again I ask: What is the incentive?
