I'd Hire more Women if they Would Apply!

Maybe you’re the one that’s not really trying? Are you sending signals that say “Dudes Only”?

As a Chapter Leader of Girl Develop It (GDI) I have had numerous companies ask me why can’t they get women to apply to their openings. They want to diversify but have a “pipeline” problem. My experience as a woman in tech and helping women enter the tech field through GDI tells me otherwise.

In this discussion we’ll consider the some of the common reasons women might not apply to certain companies and or job postings, examine some of the “red flags” you might not realize you are waving and explore ways to make the hiring process more inclusive.
