Leaders today understand that diversity is more than checking boxes. Studies have proven that diverse teams drive innovation, increase revenue and produce smarter business decisions, to name just a few.
However, gender gaps still exist, discrimination occurs frequently and a lack of representation in leadership is very much still apparent.
With progress towards ED&I underwhelmingly low despite awareness being relatively high, Storm4 recently hosted a webinar, discussing strategies and initiatives companies can incorporate in their hiring, onboarding and retention phases to ensure ED&I is a foundational component of their scaling business.
Our Green Room panellists were:
