What does the word “diversity” bring to mind for you?
I loved the definition that just simply stated… variety. That is exactly what I look for when I am hiring someone for our team. Someone better than me and that adds unique skills to the team! I have been writing a lot about recruiting more Women in the Pump Industry. Note: We are having a dinner at the fall HI/FSA meeting! This is what I think about when I think diversity, but we should look for other differences in the people we hire… it not just about gender. I loved reading these articles about how businesses perform better with different cultures represented on their team! Diversity wins!
