Erin talked about how Planet mitigates bias as much as possible through data backed strategies such as having two women on every interview panel. She also emphasized the need to support individuals as much as groups of people. Hightower shared company career page hacks to show off your company's diversity such as having the photos on the page rotate so it showcases different individuals each time someone visits the page. He also impressed us with how Lob promotes inclusion such as their Lob-brary, where employees can bring or order books that have been particularly inspiring and helpful for them individually.
So many amazing people and vendors made this meaningful event happen. Big thank you to IFTTT for hosting us in their gorgeous downtown office space. Thank you to Eden for helping us pull off our first LIVE STREAMED event! Attendees were spoiled with a delicious mediterranean menu from Zesty. Office Libations blew our socks off with Kombucha and cold brew cocktails. And of course big thank you to all the attendees that made it out to the event despite the rain, it was a great conversation and we look forward to more L&D events in 2018!
