A BETTER WAY OF APPROACHING DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
Volta is infusing new energy into the diversity and inclusion (D&I) discourse, completely repositioning the way organizations address their D&I efforts.
Volta is a portfolio of products, services, and tools with one goal: to connect D&I to the business. D&I efforts are escalating across the world as more companies come to understand the power of diversity as a driver of innovation. Most organizations, however, still struggle with integrating and sustaining these efforts within their business. Medici’s Volta portfolio of products and services will help you draw a clear line of sight between D&I and your organization’s innovation agenda.
