1. Headstart fights discrimination in hiring

It’s no longer enough to improve diversity. Businesses must actively fight discrimination in their hiring process.

The tide is turning. Business leaders are acknowledging their moral duty to customers, employees, shareholders, and wider society. And now is the time for action.
