Learn how to create an inclusive workplace

Diversity in the workplace is essential for fostering innovation, growth, and success. It goes beyond meeting quotas and ticking boxes; it's about embracing different perspectives and experiences that challenge the status quo and drive positive change. When a workplace is diverse, it becomes a breeding ground for creativity and new ideas, as individuals with different backgrounds and identities bring unique insights to the table. This diversity of thought leads to more innovative and effective solutions, as teams can tap into a wide range of perspectives to solve complex problems.

Maribel Lara is the Senior Vice-President and Head of Consulting at The Sasha Group, a VaynerX company that provides educational, consulting and marketing services to companies with a growth mindset. She has been within the Vayner world since 2014 and her role has included reporting to and partnering with CEO and serial entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk to execute initiatives tied to the strategic growth of the agency. In this episode, she talks about female representation and diverse perspectives.
