The Impact of Diversity on the Global Economy - Patience Marime-Ball & Ruth Shaber
Note that this date of the program has changed from July 14th to July 15th
Diversity matters, as there is overwhelming evidence that teams composed of individuals from different backgrounds in addition to gender (such as race, geography, disability, and age) outperform across multiple dimensions…. What is intriguing is how, with all the data we have and the visual of 2020 where we saw previously “invisible” talent taking on critical and essential roles, the world has not broadly embraced a full-potential-of-all-talent operating model.
— From “The Impact of Diversity on the Global Economy” by Patience Marime-Ball and Ruth Shaber
