Let’s talk about entrepreneurial growth with diversity and inclusion!
Diversity for us is “empowering people by respecting and appreciating what makes them different, in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, education, and national origin.” – Global Diversity Practice
