The Drum Network

Better Business: Diversifying talent for the long term with Ross Taylor, Co-founder of Hidden and Sarah Baumann, MD of VaynerMedia


The Drum Network Better Business sessions explore how to achieve consistent and sustainable growth for you, your clients and your people.
Talent is your biggest asset. Without it you won’t survive, let alone thrive. For this Better Business session, Ross and Sarah will be looking at how to redesign your talent strategy to put diversity at the centre. They’ll explore how to overcome the common challenges of committing to long-term change, the evolving barriers to diversity in a busy job market and some of the strategies you can implement to allow your talent to thrive.



A diverse workforce will better understand your clients’ needs, and bring the creativity and innovation to the team that’s going to help them succeed. And, increasingly, brands recognize this and are making diversity a key element in the RFP. So, how do you increase diversity, mitigate for bias in your own company and start to give brilliant under-represented minority talent the pathway to succeed?
