The answer is not as simple as the request since there are so many things that go into an estimate. Metaphorically speaking, it’s the same as asking a home builder how much it will cost to build a house. Do you want 1 or 2 bedrooms? How many floors? What type of fixtures do you want? What’s the square footage? You get the idea. To really provide a bonafide estimate to build the house, it takes in-depth conversation and exploration.

Is diversity a passing fad?

How companies mistakenly try to use diversity

What comes to your mind when companies talk about diversity? Or even better, what did you think about when you saw all their Twitter accounts changing into rainbow logos this June?
