MojoHire sponsored a live webinar featuring Telle Whitney, co-founder of the Grace Hopper Celebration, in partnership with GLAM (Girls Leadership Academy Meetup). In this engaging conversation, Telle offers up four tips for attracting and retaining more women in your workforce.
- Understand that by engaging with company colleagues and leadership and making your voice heard, you can make a difference!
- Recruit using MojoHire, which has tools for supporting diversity goals, including an anonymization feature that masks attributes that could potentially trigger unconscious biases and instead focuses hiring managers’ attention on the objective facts around candidates’ skills and experience.
- Diversify the places you recruit from. A few great places Telle mentions in the article are the Grace Hopper Celebration and the Richard Tapia Celebration of Diversity in Computing.
- Retain women once you attract them. If women don’t feel they belong in your culture, they will leave. Create programs that engage with employees across the board.
