We’ve always embraced diversity as a way to not only bring on talented individuals but also to foster unique solutions and prevent groupthink. Through this mindset, we’ve built one of the most diverse teams (race, gender, education, age, attitude) I’ve ever been a part of and it has been a huge factor in the success we’ve had so far. I would like to share our story with others in the hopes that it helps build diversity and success in other teams.
