|Overview:||There are several programs, courses, and initiatives that can be created to implement diversity and inclusion in the industry today. Researchers and vendors have put in a wealth of resources to discover the best ways to hire and develop underrepresented groups. So why is the industry still struggling? The short answer is that diversity and inclusion are not formulaic. It's a process that stretches over time to shift and evolve a company's culture. It can't be solved with training sessions because it's an active mindset, not an afterthought or checkbox. At the end of her first 90 days as a Manager of Diversity & Inclusion Programs at Riot Games, Soha didn't have a concrete action plan for how to solve issues within this space. Instead, she implemented key values to frame how she can approach diversity in order to make it authentic, valuable, and an integral part of a company.|
