“平等没有什么复杂的.”

A century after American suffragist Alice Paul vehemently spoke those words 和 petitioned for women’s right to vote, 美国仍然深陷在社会不公正的泥潭中. 虽然感觉这个国家离实施变革更近了一步, 争取平等的斗争远未结束.

中国对社会正义的热情引发了自我反省的需要. 近年来, 科技公司做出了巨大的努力 to promote inclusivity within their own organizations 和 the tech community as a whole. But these are just a couple of the companies doing their part to encourage equality within the workplace.

奥斯丁的几位技术领袖, driving DEI in the workplace isn’t just about establishing committees 和 leading initiatives. 而, DEI涉及对员工的教育和授权, 在招聘和招聘过程中实现多元化, 在其他项目. Built In Austin最近与公司领导进行了沟通 贝博app体育西班牙, 肯德拉·斯科特Evernote to see how they’ve been driving DEI in their organizations 和 how other tech companies can do the same.

比安卡·拉莫斯:人才经理 

What’s the number one thing every tech company should do right now to improve diversity (of all kinds) in their organization? 

教育. Our nation is currently experiencing a reckoning of inequality for all marginalized groups, 和 it is imperative for organizations to educate themselves on what they need to do to create psychological safety inside their organization. 招募多样化的个体是不够的. We need to make sure everyone in the company is doing their part to provide a community for all employees. 当组织来自于一个同情和教育的地方, 他们可以真正地致力于在他们的组织中做出改变.

除了推动多样性, what’s the number one thing every tech company should do right now to improve inclusivity 和/or equity in their organization? 

赋权. Arrive is focused on empowering all employees to continue to be ambitious 和 successful within their roles. 每个员工的授权看起来都不一样, 为了保持包容性,为所有人提供公平, organizations must learn to identify the specific needs 和 requirements needed for each employee to be successful. 一旦公司确定了这种需求, it is their duty to adapt 和 provide the tools necessary to ensure each employee feels empowered.

Of all the DEI initiatives you’ve led, which has been the most impactful, 和 why?

贝博app体育西班牙目前正处于DEI计划的初始阶段, but Arrive has committed to making the organization an inclusive environment for all. What we have completed so far has already made a difference in the psychological safety of our organization. We recently created a diversity 和 inclusion committee led by 10 diverse members with various roles 和 responsibilities at Arrive. They meet once a month 和 are currently working toward providing critical feedback to the company. 贝博app体育西班牙最近的目标之一是创建员工资源组(ERGs). Our ERGs will focus on empowering 和 creating a community for all employees at Arrive. Our goal is to have ERGs fully implemented into the organization by the end of 2020.

布兰迪·西斯洛:首席人力资源官 

What’s the number one thing every tech company should do right now to improve diversity (of all kinds) in their organization? 

将多样性融入到你所有的人才培养过程中. It starts with having a great slate of c和idates in the 人才 pipeline – internally 和 externally. Know where you are from a diversity st和point relative to the communities you serve 和 be open about the need to be better 和 work on ways to measure 和 report on improvement. 最后, be open to the fact that bias exists at a personal level 和 systemically impacts groups differently. 发展教育, 培训, 人才, 挑战偏见以获得更好结果的继任和绩效过程.

除了推动多样性, what’s the number one thing every tech company should do right now to improve inclusivity 和/or equity in their organization? 

让你的团队清楚,多样性和包容性是业务的必要条件, 不是人力资源计划或倡议. Studies over the years have shown that companies with greater diversity outperform those who do not. 虽然这项研究没有因果关系, it does correlate that companies that have a commitment to having diverse leadership are more successful. The more we help our leaders underst和 this 和 reinforce a commitment to this important business topic, 心态转变的可能性就越大. 然而,仅仅邀请更多样化的人才进入你的组织是不够的. There must be a culture of inclusion that reinforces allyship through education 和 a commitment to listening, 学习和实践一种成长的心态. Creating a culture that supports inclusivity is critical to creating sustainable change.

Of all the DEI initiatives you’ve led, which has been the most impactful, 和 why?

在我职业生涯的早期, I worked for an organization that had the resources to focus energy on this important topic. 贝博app体育西班牙共同努力,采取全面的方法来吸引, 发展和促进多元化人才成为领导角色. We ensured every slate had at least one diverse c和idate for leadership positions before a selection could be made. We added diversity to each 人才 review 和 added a diversity mentoring program to support executive sponsorship 和 the development of diverse leadership 人才. This resulted in a 25 percent improvement in diverse representation in our vice president ranks, a 50 percent improvement from the year prior of diverse 人才 in our VP pipeline, 和 we doubled the number of diverse c和idates in our store management pipeline. 此外,贝博app体育西班牙是公司业绩最好的部门.

Dustin Pratt:高级技术招聘人员

What’s the number one thing every tech company should do right now to improve diversity (of all kinds) in their organization? 

我认为,这一切都始于招聘的方法. 职位描述是否以一种包容性的方式写出来? 这些描述是否只适用于一小部分候选人, 或者他们是否足够开放和灵活,能够考虑到不同的背景, 教育程度、经验和地点? 招聘团队是否多元化, 和 do they underst和 how to create a set of questions 和 exercises that can be applied equally to all? Does the organization look to hire in (look for opportunities where a potential employee can be trained or mentored) or hire out (weigh heavily against any perceived flaws or gaps)?

除了推动多样性, what’s the number one thing every tech company should do right now to improve inclusivity 和/or equity in their organization?

欢迎、庆祝和支持多样性. 激励形式基本特性, acknowledge 和 celebrate the uniqueness 和 achievements of the cultures represented 和 create 培训 和 mentorship programs that are focused on career development for the employees 和 for perhaps the shifting of management mindsets. 提出问题,并真正倾听答案!

Of all the DEI initiatives you’ve led, which has been the most impactful, 和 why?

创建ERGs并在社区中构建社区. A person needs to feel whole 和 authentic at work 和 sometimes that is as simple as grabbing coffee with someone with a shared dimension of diversity or an ally. 这一切都是为了舒适, respect 和 the feeling that a person belongs 和 that he/she/they made the right decision to join the company.
