Three-layer strategy to avoid diversity fatigue

The speaker will focus on presenting three innovative corporate systems that can upgrade a company's HR systems, which include a fully blind hiring process, performance evaluation and promotion systems, and an inclusive compensation system. These systems have been successfully implemented at CFC Big Ideas, an international communications consultancy where Kostiantyn has been the COO for almost 15 years.
