It's not lost on us that we are in a time where companies recognize their practices are not always equitable and now they are making concerted efforts to ensure they reflect the communities they serve by building diverse, dynamic teams. For any business to function well, they must represent the users, customers and communities they serve while understanding how equity, diversity, and inclusion fit into the companies overall vision/strategy.
