How Our Differences Make All The Difference

It shouldn’t be news that diverse teams consistently outperform homogeneous teams – especially if the problems we are solving are tricky. In an industry of thinkers, we might do well to consider diversity of mind and fully embrace and support all of the wonderful and different thinkers we have. This talk with Sal Freudenberg is a rallying cry against homogenous, one-size-fits-all environments, processes and recruitment methods, which often exclude those very best equipped to help our products, teams and organisations flourish.
