Gijs (Gys) Hillmann on Leading Right in a Global Multicultural World
We live in a bipolar world, from one side we all want Inclusive Workplaces and from the other side the progress that we have made today is definitely absurd - Only 6.6% of all Fortune 500 companies have women as their CEOs, 78% of employees said they work at organizations that lack diversity in leadership positions (HBR).
I want to believe that humans are wired to be biased … but I need to ask to a real expert on that topic for this episode of Growth Hacking Culture on Leading Right in a Global Multicultural World. My guest is Gijs Hillmann.
