8 Lessons from Diversity Reboot 2020
Over 40,000 people joined us online last week for Diversity Reboot 2020. We're so grateful to those of you who joined us and we are feeling re-energized and more committed than ever to diversity, equity, and inclusion in our homes and our workplaces.
As we reflect on all of the insights shared last week, we wanted to share some of the quotes that stuck with us and have helped us contemplate how to best contribute to the building of a new, more equitable world:
On the value of diversity.
On the need to seek out underrepresented talent.
On the importance of self-care.
On not overlooking the importance of the "everyday" experiences we create.
On rethinking inclusion.
