Outside the Box: 4 ways this tech CEO is increasing workplace diversity

When I moved from Google (approximately 70,000 employees) to become CEO of Quizlet (about 30 employees when I started) and started learning more about the small-but-mighty team building our learning platform, there were a number of things that surprised me in my first few weeks.

One was that despite our differences in size, the overall makeup of our respective employee bases looked pretty similar. Women and minorities were underrepresented at both companies in similar ratios; it didn’t matter if the denominator was a few dozen people or thousands of times that.

However, I don’t believe it’s a conscious decision to exclude any demographic — women, minorities, or even white males.
