Event Details

Recruiters, sourcers, hiring managers, and those with influence in the hiring processes: be part of the first generationof companies to make an impact in diversity in tech through recruiting.


Silicon Valley is buzzing about diversity in tech, but acknowledging there’s a problem is just the first step. Join us at Lever as our panel of distinguished guests discusses how to make the leap from talking about diversity in the workplace, to actually building it. We’re tired of hand-wavy statements when it comes to diversity in tech recruiting, just as you are – come for the concrete advice and candid discussion around the research, experiments, successes, and takeaways, as well as networking with talent leaders from around the area.

  • 5:30 pm: Doors Open + hors d'oeuvres

  • 6-7 pm: Panel & Discussion

  • 7-7:30 pm: Networking  


(Due to limited space, registration is open for up to 3 representatives of the same company)

Now as Diversity Programs Manager, Nabeela oversees employee engagement programs, works with recruiting on diversity strategies, and partners with external organizations. She is passionate about empowering employees to join on the fun of internal communities and believes in fostering hiring teams to look for candidates that are a culture add instead of a culture fit. 


Aline Lerner


After spending a few years writing code, Aline ran hiring at TrialPay and Udacity and also launched her own recruiting firm, where she hired engineers for great companies like Airbnb, Asana, and, of course, Lever. Aline's blog about data driven recruiting has become one of the go-to sources of information in this space, and her work on the subject has appeared in Forbes and Fast Company. After observing some of the systemic issues with the way engineers are hired firsthand, she decided to try to fix things by launching, an anonymous technical interviewing platform where's she's working on building a community around judging people by what they can do, rather than how they look on paper.
