It wasn't so long ago when Diversity & Inclusion was viewed as a sort of a novelty issue - companies understood that having a team dedicated to these issues was a good thing to have, but not totally necessary to the bottom line. Interestingly, that ideology has transformed over the past few years, as more and more data is showing that diversity and inclusion is actually correlated to value creation and a company's profitability. Also, it's now common knowledge that a strong diversity and inclusion strategy can help organizations attract top talent and drive innovative results.

Our Co-Founder is a gay man who lives with a mental disability, although he refuses to allow this disability to define him. Having dealt with diversity challenges his whole career, he decided to launch DiversityStars.com in order to amplify the efforts of Diversity and Inclusion leaders who evangelize a corporate culture where everyone has a voice and is respected. "Throughout my entire career in the Tech industry, I have had to face diversity challenges. I often felt as if my sexual orientation and disability hampered my ability to advance my career and left me without opportunities to be mentored by my previous managers", said Christian Monk, Co-Founder & CMO at DiversityStars. "I founded DiversityStars.com in order to put exemplary leaders of D&I Management in the spotlight, giving them a platform where they can inspire future leaders.
