3 Diversity Hiring Strategies (In One Graphic) You Can Implement Today

It’s no secret that more companies are looking to diversity recruiting initiatives as a way to spark innovation on their teams, especially as data continues to show the competitive advantage of pursuing diversity and inclusion.
