Ever think about diversity in the workplace? Hopefully your answer is “yes!” If not, maybe it’s time to put it on your radar… Diversity in the workplace is a huge factor in the decision making process when looking for a new job.
Open your eyes- diversity & inclusion is the here to stay! Are you ready for the next step?
“Best Practices: Attracting, Hiring & Maintaining a Diverse Tech Team” will be centered around the topic of diversity in tech hiring.
We’re aiming to tackle the subjects revolving around the entire process of how companies-specifically their tech teams- attract diverse talent, interview diverse talent effectively, make offer/hire diverse talent, and then maintain diverse tech teams.
