Early-stage companies have an opportunity to set themselves apart from competitors by building a more inclusive workforce from their inception.
To do this, they need to be intentional about defining the company culture from the onset, because an inclusive culture will determine how the team interacts, behaves and operates. Startups that commit to inclusivity are more likely to attract and retain talent, putting themselves in a position to catalyze growth.
Founders need to build a pipeline of inclusive and diverse stakeholders well before starting the company, if possible. They should be transparent about what they are trying to accomplish.
