Learn How Your Company Can Boost Profits and Impact by Becoming a Magnet for Diverse and Inclusive Talent

Take a moment and look around your workplace.

How many people look like you?

If you’re an entrepreneur you know all too well that when we start companies, we often start them with our friends, our existing networks … and that means people like us.

And in those early founding moments we miss a big opportunity, because if by employee 10 everyone looks and acts the same, chances are, your company will struggle to find the best talent. It will be much harder to attract diverse team members.  

If on the other hand you make it your mission to build an inclusive culture and specifically set out to recruit minorities, women, LGTBQ, and people with different experiences than you, your business will boom in ways you never imagined.

Jennifer Brown is a diversity expert, LGTBQ entrepreneur, consultant to Fortune 500s, startups and nonprofits, and the host of The Will to Changepodcast, which uncovers true stories of diversity and inclusion.

Today she has a new book out called How to be an Inclusive Leader: Your Role in Creating Cultures of Belonging Where Everyone Can Thrive and we talk about:

Why it is that diverse teams and inclusive cultures boost bottom line profits and impact
How to recruit outside your networks
Why its important to create a culture where employees can bring their full selves to work by being an inclusive leader
Why meritocracy in the workplace is a myth
Why everyone has a diversity story – even a white middle aged man
How to respond to men who are nervous about mentoring and promoting women after #MeToo
And more!

Jennifer Brown is also the bestselling author of Inclusion: Diversity, The New Workplace and The Will to Change. Her work has been featured by media such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, AdWeek, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, Forbes, Inc., CBS, and many more. Her new book, How To Be An Inclusive Leader: Your Role in Creating Cultures of Belonging Where Everyone Can Thrive, debuts in August and is now available for pre-order.
