Names Like Spotify Are Empowering Their Employees By Building Community
From Forbes to Facebook, brands are building platforms that bring together workers from marginalized backgrounds to overcome diversity challenges as a community
One of the major roadblocks for employees of marginalized identities is that they often do not have the same access to mentorship and community spaces as other workers. Now, forward-thinking brands are building platforms that bring together employees from marginalized backgrounds, helping them share resources and seek advice. These companies are empowering their staff by facing problems head-on.
