An Interview with our Co-Founder, Steve Bartel
At Gem, we believe that hiring a diverse and inclusive team is critical to building a high-performing company and fostering a culture that honors compassion—both internally and for its customers. So we want to start now, while we’re young and growing. Because “growth” isn’t synonymous with “flourishing” unless you have a strong foundation.
But we also recognize that the topic of D&I is nuanced. Its challenges are systemic and often unconscious. In other words, we have a lot to learn… but we also have a lot to unlearn: some blind spots to address, some stripping-away of assumptions.
