How do you build a diverse team?

The modern organisation benefits from the range of ideas generated by a diverse team - but how do you build one? In this talk Kirsteene Phelan of travel technology start-up Rome2rio shares current thinking surrounding diversity in recruitment, plus tools and tips being used to hire teams and build a company culture in which diversity is more than a buzzword.

She is currently the Director of Communications at Rome2rio and is an integral part of the startup's operations and HR team.
