Diverse & Inclusive Hubs

How Can Your Hub Become A Leader In Diversity?

Be Strategic

The phases are loosely chronological but in true startup style, we suggest an agile, iterative approach to designing and growing a D&I function in your organisation.

Some of the frameworks and assets for this playbook were created by Dogpatch Labs based on our learnings in D&I or those shared with us by partners from the Google for Startups global network. Other content is from external resources and will be linked and referenced throughout the site.

Where should you start?

The Inclusive Hubs Scorecard

Whether you’re a managing director or an intern, The first step on this journey is to take a step back and assess what you’re currently doing in D&I, and where there are gaps in your approach.

We created a high-level scorecard to help hubs benchmark themselves and consider the breadth of D&I as it applies to hubs.

Where do I go next?

If you’re a managing director/CEO head over to Shaping Your D&I Plan to assess how an intentional D&I strategy might help improve your overall impact.

If you’re an aspiring D&I Champion head over to Make It Happen!
