HARVARD BUSINESS REVIEW | Over the past decade, technology companies and their leaders have launched diversity and inclusion (D&I) initiatives, hoping to make employees of all backgrounds and experiences feel welcome in our industry. We failed.
I have examined this question from both sides, as a leader in charge of building an exceptional workforce and as a woman in a predominantly male industry. Both perspectives came together recently in a talk that I gave at the Professional Business Women’s Conference. I was asked to tee up a panel discussion with a seven-minute talk to describe how I “feel” about the topic. To do that, I had to really think about my own life experiences.”
