    A diverse team makes a better team. You get a variety of perspectives, you get increased creativity, you get an uplift in productivity, you get improved performance, and that’s just the team. 

    For the organization, a diverse workforce results in growth, a boost to your reputation, and a global impact. Having a diverse team is simply better all around. But to get a diverse workforce you first have to start with building a diverse candidate pool.

    This session will define what diversity is and provide tips and best practices on how to overcome the hurdles presented when you do not have a diverse applicant pool to choose from.
