NEW - How to Actually Recruit & Retain Diverse Tech Teams | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Research has repeatedly shown that diverse teams lead to higher revenue, increased innovation, and better ROI.  At recruitHER, we know many Austin tech companies genuinely want to have a more diverse staff, but have either been unsuccessful in recruiting efforts in the past or don't know where to start.  

Drawing on the latest research, we'll discuss the business benefits of workforce diversity, barriers to creating a diverse team, and proven methods for sourcing against your diversity goals. We'll also provide actionable strategies to ensure you can retain top talent after offer letters are signed!

Austin Startup Week is supported in part by HiredNetSpendIBM BluemixCapital Factory and Techstars. If you see someone from their teams, give them a hug and hi-five!
