Dawn Hudson explains in this powerful talk, diversity is at the heart of successful modern business models. Diverse points of view and people not only fuel new ways of thinking but also fill gaps or weaknesses that may exist. A champion of diversity throughout her time at the NFL and Pepsi, Hudson believes that empowering diverse voices is a critical aspect of leadership and talent development at any company. Without offering new points of view seats at the table, Hudson explains, organizations have little hope of powering their brand or industry into the future. A blend of anecdotes and best practices, this talk hits on the power of diversity in building smart business strategies, a thriving corporate culture, and leaders for the next generation.
