DescriptionThis session is for industry engineers with an appetite for aiding their employers in adopting more inclusive and fair hiring practices. Attendees don’t need to be directly involved in hiring at their companies (yet!), and we will provide tools and frameworks for attendees to propose changes in their organizations through a data driven and science-backed approach. We will present research on how tech hiring processes can fail women, people of color, people with disabilities, and the lgbtq+ community -- and empower audience members with concrete solutions in order to improve hiring outcomes for their companies and teams.
