Does your organization face challenges in hiring technical talent, given the record low unemployment across the US and especially in tech? If so, you may need to cast a wider net during the hiring process and evaluate candidates differently. All without lowering the bar. In this workshop, we’ll cover how to be more inclusive during the hiring process and how to retain the talent you’ve worked so hard to find.
Bring a laptop, tablet or phone. You’ll use it to review your organization’s career site, job descriptions, and more, as part of exercises to identify improvements to attract more candidates from underrepresented groups.
After spending 25 years building software products and serving as a vice president of engineering at Macromedia and Adobe, Karen Catlin witnessed a sharp decline in the number of women working in tech. Frustrated but galvanized, she knew it was time to switch gears.
Today, Karen is a vocal advocate for inclusion, a leadership coach, and a keynote speaker. She’s the author of Better Allies: Everyday Actions to Create Inclusive, Engaging Workplaces and the forthcoming The Better Allies™ Approach to Hiring. She’s also co-author of Present! A Techie’s Guide to Public Speaking.
