I run a startup that builds diverse talent pipelines for corporations. Recently, a recruiting manager at one of the world’s largest companies told my team he was struggling to build a case for investing in more diversity-focused initiatives. His employees were questioning why their company would be spending money on diversity recruiting campaigns, including events, where women and people of color could hear why the company should be considered an inclusive place to work.
I was shocked. It’s 2018. Homogeneous teams are not only bad for business and the economy
