Event description

Description

The jury is in—representation matters. Diversity and inclusion in the workplace is good for people and it's good for businesess, boosting creativity, promoting a global perspective and greater relevancy, and encouraging socially conscious product development and marketing.

The conversation around diversity in the workplace has shifted. We agree that it is important, but the startup industry—particularly in Boston—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 innovation at lightspeed? And, equally important, how do we foster inclusive company cultures that are capable of nurturing and retaining all talent?

This event is part of the Talent & Training track at Startup Boston 2018.
