Summary

Diversity and inclusion should take center stage in the development of a young company’s culture. To be successful, this effort must emanate from the top-down, led by the CEO, with management buy-in. Because company culture takes hold quickly, hiring quality HR and diversity and inclusion staff should be early priorities for a start-up to ensure these values are properly ingrained from the beginning. Developing an HR strategy based on inclusion – not concerns about legal liability – is also critical.
