What is diversity & inclusion?

Diversity refers to the variety of differences among people in a group or organization. These differences can include things like race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, ability, religion, and cultural background.

Inclusion, on the other hand, refers to the practices and policies that create a sense of belonging and acceptance for all people, regardless of their differences. Together, diversity and inclusion refer to the practice of valuing and supporting a diverse range of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives within a group or organisation.

What is the importance of diversity & inclusion in the startup ecosystem?

In the startup ecosystem, diversity and inclusion are important for a number of reasons:

First, diverse teams are more innovative and creative. When you bring together people with different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives, you create a more dynamic and innovative environment. Diverse teams are better able to identify and solve problems from multiple angles, which can lead to better outcomes and more successful businesses.

Second, diverse and inclusive workplaces are more attractive to top talent.
