Building the best team at Ciena and opening up new market opportunities means incorporating diversity of all kinds, according to its director of business development, Emmanuelle Cahane.

Diversity is good for business I get sick of hearing people dismiss gender as a consideration because they are "trying to build the best team irrespective of it." Emmanuelle explained it best -- all types of diversity do matter and that helps make the best team. I don't think gender, or a diverse background, should be the most important hiring consideration, but it's okay to make it one of the considerations as part of the bigger picture.
