Representation matters. Diversity and inclusion in the workplace is good for your employees and it's good for business, boosting creativity, promoting a broader perspective, maintaining accessibility to audiences, and encouraging product development and marketing that's customer-conscious.
Today, the conversation around diversity in the workplace has shifted. We agree that it is important, but the startup industry remains largely homogenous.
What are the barriers around diverse hiring that we don't realize exist, and how do we overcome these? How do we prioritize and stay committed to hiring for diversity in the face of tight deadlines and light-speed innovation? And how do we foster inclusive company cultures that are capable of nurturing and retaining all talent?
This event is part of the People Ops & Team Leaders Track at Startup Boston Week 2019. And is perfect for companies in the Growth Stage.
