Dialogue/Story

Audrey:  Have you seen these design ideas? They’re stale.

Simon:  Maybe it’s time we diversified our workforce. It’s pretty homogenous right now.

Audrey:  It’s not that homogeneous. We have people from different cultures and backgrounds, people who are bilingual and multicultural.

Simon:  That’s not what I mean and you know it. We’re missing a huge demographic. Having more diversity will help us find new ways to tackle problems and come up with creative ideas.

Audrey:  Are you saying we’ve become stodgy?  I’m not adverse to change, you know.

Simon:  I know that.

Audrey:  But how will the rest of the company react?

Simon:  I don’t know but a more diverse workforce will also prevent discrimination lawsuits. That’s the reality we live in.

Audrey:  I really don't know. Do you really think hiring more men to design women’s bras is a good idea?

Simon:  Of course. We have a unique appreciation for them.
