Notable Remarks

“The right approach to diversity is to first remove bias. Then, let the candidates show you who they are.  You’ll naturally end with a great mix of qualified candidates for the job. That’s the great thing.”
“A diversity mindset is achieved by involving all team members and giving them ownership of outcomes...especially in larger organizations.”
“D&I needs to be something that every single employee at the company has a stake in.”

“A bad job description causes a candidate to not even apply, when they’re fully qualified, and they want to work for you.”
