Mastering the Art and Science of Diversity
Presented by Bradley Lawrence, Senior Manager, Customer Success, LinkedIn

Finding, hiring and retaining diverse talent is a critical but complex challenge. Brad Lawrence, a senior leader, at LinkedIn will join to share about LinkedIn's continued learning journey and some best practices in:

  • Finding diverse talent to fit your requirements: with low unemployment and continued economic growth, finding the right talent to fit your needs is tough, and it's important to have a thoughtful strategy to find the right talent for you
