Women in STEM, episode 2: Building diverse teams

For nearly 10 years, McKinsey has studied the relationship between diversity and performance. Time and time again, the findings have been consistent: inclusion matters. Companies with diverse executive teams show greater likelihoods for achieving financial outperformance. And to get to such progress, leaders will need both ambition and resilience.

In this second episode of our Women in STEM series, we talked with Alice Bentinck, co-founder of Entrepreneur First; Barbara Salami, VP of Digital for Commercial at Moderna; Chandrika Tandon, chair of the board of the NYU Tandon School of Engineering; Elham Al Qasim, CEO of Digital14; and Monica Caldas, CIO of Liberty Mutual on building diverse teams—why it matters and how they do it.
