Notwithstanding different regulations such as quotas, companies themselves have learned that gender diversity helps them achieve better results. Various scientific studies, at the university level and in various consulting and accounting firms, have begun examining this topic over the past 3 years. One of the most recognised is the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington,…Continue

It’s not a secret that the technology sector has massive gender gaps between men and women, even though women make up the vast majority of the working force, the gap is nowhere near closing. It doesn’t appear to be an education issue either, as women hold more Bachelors and Graduate degrees than men. Many…Continue

I FEEL SO BAD FOR THEM, THEY’VE DONE SO MUCH AND THEN IT’S SO HARD TO COME HOME AND BE NORMAL AGAIN.

If I had a dollar for every time I've read or heard something along the lines of the following, I'd be able to afford lots of lunch items not listed on the Del Taco "buck and under" menu.

What happens in an organization where minorities are in leadership and the majority is subject to discrimination? Before we set out on this road to explore “reverse discrimination” let us be clear on a few things:
1) Reverse discrimination is not equal to racism. Racism is more than a…Continue

There is a high demand for individuals in STEM fields. Even conservative estimates assume that for decades to come there will be many more tech jobs available than there will be qualified applicants to fill them.
Many big tech companies are thinking ahead and doing anything they can to boost the number of people necessary to perform work in a technical role.…Continue

Let's be honest, if we took a look at the technology you're using to interview even 5 years ago, I bet it would look almost the same as it does today. Maybe a new platform or two but essentially the same sh*t, different year, despite the blogging community and a ton of startups who have spent…Continue

Everywhere you turn lately, you seem to come across another article on diversity (including this one which might just piss you off). It's interesting to see companies highlight their programs to the media in an effort to save face. Unfortunately, the inefficiencies of their diversity programs and the…Continue
I recently shared data on gender diversity in STEM (science, tech, engineering, and mathematics) jobs. This time, I'm examining ethnic diversity for these fields. How ethnically diverse is US's STEM candidate supply? Below are the percentages of qualified people in the US workforce for each STEM field, broken down by ethnicity.
Ethnic Breakdown of…Continue
Have you ever noticed how few people over 30 or so get hired at early-stage startups, and while age discrimination is sometimes discussed, how rarely (if ever) you hear of startups being cited or working to age-diversify their early-stage hires?

I was reading a trade industry article online and came across a question from another recruiter, I thought the question would spark a robust yet healthy dialogue. I would love to get your thoughts, read on….
Dear Staffing: Dude Dressed Like A Lady, Now What?!

“I never, I repeat, NEVER thought that I would come across this issue in all my years of staffing but here I am and I haven’t the slightest what to do about it. I always told myself that it would not…Continue
Recently when I presented the “Secrets of a Successful Job Search” at the University of Utah, I asked the participants “How many of you feel you have been discriminated because of your age?” About a third of the people raised their hands.
When you read about diversity recruitment most people discuss systems and solutions but I have yet to see anyone discuss the root problem. Possibly the reason that you do not see the root cause is that most people who write on the subject are outside…Continue
Its a typical Monday morning. The staff comes in to work in the usual fashion. The beginning of the workweek yet again, however, something is different. Over the past couple of years, sales have been "OK" but you have seen better years in the past. You have shrugged it off and blamed it on the bad economy. Yes, it must be the economy. The worst financial times since the great depression.... Right??
You check your year over year…Continue

A Toast “to the crazy ones,” by Steve Jobs

1. Ask us how long we have lived in the area. Do not ask us where we are REALLY from. Do not ask us what our nationality is when you mean ethnicity. Aside from EEO issues in the US, these questions show that you have already put us in a box as "other" and we are tired of hearing it. Also, for Asian orphans, this can be a painful question. Some do not know. One woman I met was abandoned in Saigon as a toddler speaking Chinese in 1968. …Continue
