Event description

Description

Uber. Binary Capital. 500 Startups. Google. To avoid becoming the next big news story, companies must take a deep look at their culture and see if it truly reflects the type of talent they hope to employ and retain, and if the company’s values align with that mission.

Join Equili founder Elaine Marino for an exclusive 5-person workshop for tech companies where she will discuss:

  • How to hire for diversity & inclusion.
  • Best practices in hiring and retaining talent.
  • Rewriting your job descriptions to hire for diversity and inclusion.
  • Reviewing your interview practices and the do’s and don’ts.
  • Reflecting upon your corporate culture: is it a place to attract and retain top talent?

Attendees will come away with actionable steps to implement Diversity and Inclusion practices to attract new employees, retain the talent you have, and positively impact your company’s culture.

The first half hour (9:00-9:30am) will be coffee and introductions. The purpose is to simply gain insight and understanding about your current company, hear your concerns, and frankly have some friendly conversations before the real work begins.

About Facilitator:

Elaine Marino

Elaine Marino

Elaine Marino, Equili Founder, is spearheading an industry-wide movement transforming diversity in the tech space. Elaine left the Fortune 500 advertising industry to become a Ruby on Rails developer. It was then when she experienced first-hand the tremendous gap in diversity within software development. It was apparent that women and minorities were woefully underrepresented throughout the community. Elaine saw clearly how change could be made for the better. Elaine’s viewpoint on the tech industry is unique in that she is an insider and an outsider.

Early in her endeavors, it became clear that some different career enrichment strategies for women and minorities were necessary to become successful. Learning and developing these techniques formed the knowledge base that Equili was founded upon. Elaine also recognized the critical need to pass this strategic knowledge onto other women and other diverse groups looking to thrive in the tech industry. Elaine knows first hand how diverse, unique perspectives are invaluable in the work space. During her tenure at Equili, she has been designing, implementing, and managing events, workshops, and content aimed at bringing more diversity into the tech arena. Elaine’s extensive background brings a multitude of experience to all her clients. There is a sweet-spot where technology enhances the lives of people and communities — that is where Elaine thrives.
