Location: Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, 650 Page Mill Rd, Palo Alto, CA
We know that building a team is challenging and this event aims to bring together leaders of different backgrounds and experiences to share their perspective on how to make Diversity and Inclusion part of your company values. They will share their 'why', their stories, challenges, successes, tips and answer your questions about building an environment that appeals to people of all backgrounds, and sets them up for success. Join us for a roundtable in this closed setting where we discuss best practices for building a team. This event is hosted by the Founder Institute & Wilson Sonsini Goodrich Rosati (WSGR), featuring Ryan Micheletti (Cofounder of Vet-Tech), Lesa Hammond (CEO of Profhire) and Matt Shapiro (CEO of Siyea).
