Attempts to cultivate an inclusive workplace have repeated ended up on the back-burner. In the past Selena’s team consulted multiple community groups to find diverse talent, but her team thought the process was long and tedious. Selena knew it would be a hard sell to get her team to try again, even though she knew it was the right thing to do.
