      • The Power of Diversity: Better decisions? Better outcomes?

        Vancouver, BC

        It’s the idea that hiring for a “fit” is the worst thing you can do. Diversity can actually enhance innovation within different fields by bringing in different cultural perspectives, experiences and forces everyone to confront the biases of their own expectations. It’s beyond simply being “the right thing to do” – it essential to creating a better world. Join us for an evening of dialogue as our panel shares their insights and experiences, and explores how inclusion of diverse voices and perspectives can deliver more innovative, more creative, and more inclusive outcomes. Presented by UBC Equity & Inclusion, in partnership with alumni UBC.
