Diversity adds 19% to your bottom line!
This week I interviewed Damani Corbin (Enterprise Sales Manager at Weaveworks, a GV and Accel backed start-up, and VP of the non-profit organisation Blacks on Wall St), and let me tell you, working with Damani has been truly enlightening.
If you are looking for practical advice on the first steps to creating a sustainable diversity initiative, take a look and let me know your thoughts.
The overarching theme is that diversity makes businesses successful:
- Boston Consulting Group have found that companies with more diverse management teams have 19% higher revenues due to innovation
- McKinsey report that companies in the top quartile for racial and ethnic diversity are 35% more likely to have financial returns ABOVE the national industry medians
And if you are a Sales or HR leader at a Tech start-up and would like to know more about how our partnership can help you with diversity and/or be included on updates in this conversation, please comment YES or email firstname.lastname@example.org
