"The extended workforce is not an afterthought anymore; it’s a key part of many organizations’ talent strategies and that’s why I think we should be thinking about diversity as a total talent initiative."

Taylor Ramchandani, Product Manager, VectorVMS

"Diversity and inclusion is a critical driver of an organization’s success, but it takes time and commitment to establish a sustainable and meaningful D&I strategy. Leaders need to be equipped with resources to actively manage D&I strategies in real time and encourage their full-time and contingent workers alike to actively engage in the process of cultivating a more diverse and inclusive environment
