Ben’s List 17

One of the most efficient ways to build a diverse workforce and an inclusive culture in your company is to start with the purpose of serving a certain type of people. This community-centric approach is now everywhere but it wasn’t always the case.

For us, it has always been to help founders succeed at Tech events.

Another critical approach is to facilitate remote work. Again, something a lot more popular nowadays but still hard to implement. Not everyone can afford living in Paris, so hiring here tends to bias towards uniform talent.

Thanks to Suzanne and Dan for suggesting some great pieces.


Diversity

“Racial and ethnic diversity remains a critical missing piece of the puzzle…There is so much more work to do to ensure those who are writing the checks reflect the world around us”

*All Raise measures the number of decision-makers in venture capital, defined as “checkwriters” who can write checks, lead deals and sit on boards.

The Content Commodity Trap

The content commodity trap
Content exists on a commodity spectrum. When it’s easy to replicate, you have a problem. When it’s differentiated, it’s a business moat.
