Business leaders are increasingly recognizing that cultivating a diverse and inclusive workforce is not just the right thing to do, it can also have tremendously positive impacts on company growth. In a recent study by McKinsey, companies that are more gender diverse outperformed others by 21%, while those that are more ethnically diverse are 33% more likely to outperform others.
“As the world was plagued by the pandemic and racial inequities of the past year, employees needed executives who could lead with strength and compassion,” said Comparably CEO Jason Nazar. “Nylas’ multiple award wins is a testament to the strong CEO they have in Gleb and how committed the leadership team is to diversity and growth opportunities for its employees.”
