Startups are meant to be innovative and disrupt the status quo, but far too often, they actually fail to do so, and in many cases, even display worse diversity practices than larger companies.

In this episode, Vanessa talks to ZJ Hadley from Tulip Retail about diversity in the startup world.

About this series: 

Although gender diversity is a prominent topic in the news, particularly with headlines like, “The business case for gender diversity,” the needle hasn’t significantly moved in the past 10 to 15 years. What accounts for the gap between talk and progress?

In the “Beyond the Business Case” podcast, Vanessa Ko interviews companies to uncover the best practices and policies they’re implementing to improve gender diversity. She also highlights innovations in the field that change the conversation on gender diversity in business.

This podcast was supported by the Institute for Gender and the Economy (GATE) as part of the MBA Student Fellows program, which seeks to engage students in advancing the agenda on gender equality.
