“The purpose of diversity and inclusion is for more innovation. Some organizations tend to forget that. And sometimes, in Silicon Valley, the focus is only on numbers and not what you do with people when you get them into your organization – how do you leverage their genius? So you can be more innovative? So you can expand your market? When people only focus on numbers, it doesn’t really move us forward.” -Simma Lieberman, Workplace Culture Strategist, Simma Lieberman Consulting
