Your new online t-shirt company (UCreate) is gaining popularity and increasing in sales due to an innovative technology that allows customers to design and produce their own t-shirts in various personalized styles. Your current employee base is made up of 20 family members and friends that manage sales, marketing, finances, production, shipping and online technology. There is no real demographic or cultural diversity among existing staff who can be best described as Caucasian males between the ages of 20 and 30 born in Toronto. In order to keep up with demand, you need to at least double your staff.

What are the key benefits of diversifying the workforce at UCreate? 2. What will be the key challenges of diversifying the workforce at UCreate? 3.
