“In the future, there will be no female leaders. There will just be leaders.”
Diversity and innovation is the new-age tech culture. It is widely accepted and proved that diverse leadership and teams tend to out-innovate and out-perform the others. But what about diversity and inclusion? Many tech companies fail to understand that creating an inclusive culture is very different from simply creating a diverse workplace and they are often used interchangeably.
Diversity is a measure of human differences along a spectrum of individual and background characteristics, which can include race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, age, sexual orientation, physical ability, social class, religion, and more.
Inclusion is a measure of how effectively an organization enables individual perspectives.
When leading a rapidly-growing startup, handling global teams and working in different timezones, it is very important to create an inclusive global culture.
