Startups don’t run without people: How to prioritise culture, diversity, equity, and inclusion from the start
In this Creative HQ Session, Lauren Peate will share her winding journey into the startup world and the experiences she's had around the world which showed her why culture & DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) should be at the core of any startup. She’ll then talk about how her company, Multitudes, has taken action to prioritise people from the start – even as they launched their beta product and are working for product-market fit.
