Indra is a champion of diversity. She says you can discover the best candidates if you draw from the entire talent pool, rather than a narrow one.
Inclusion is important in order for everyone to feel equal and there shouldn’t be disparity in wages or benefits based on race, religion, or gender. Also, people who need special training should be allowed the opportunity. Indra explains, for example, that Asian people are very strong in their jobs, but they sometimes have trouble with communication.
Indra wants everyone to be successful because she wants the company to be successful. To be a champion of diversity, Indra recommends:

  • Believe in all people.
  • Lift your team up.
  • When it doesn’t work out, allow them to leave.
