How can you accelerate innovation and entrepreneurship within your organization? Diversity hiring. Hiring people with a diverse set of backgrounds and life experiences brings new perspectives, ideas, and thought processes to your team and your business.
Career changers are an untapped resource in the job market when it comes diversity hiring. Folks who have worked for years in a role & industry outside of tech, and then have dedicated months to transition into tech, bring a unique combination of real-world experience and in-demand skills. This discussion will highlight companies that have created their own internal strategies to help these career changers transition into tech and design roles, and leverage their knowledge and experience to the benefit of their business.
