Interactive Mechanics shared some tips on how to make hiring a lot more inclusiveDecember 6, 2016 Category: Results, Short
Center City-based design firm Interactive Mechanics launched a paid, remotely-located fellowship back in July with a two-pronged approach.
First, hire and develop underrepresented talent in the tech sector such as people of color and women. Second, be very intentional about using the fellowship as an opportunity to develop an inclusive hiring process.
The second part is what should bend employers’ ears. Over the course of the fellowship, staff at Interactive Mechanics have learned a thing or two — or five.
The firm’s director of strategic initiatives, Amelia Longo, walked through those lessons (like fine-tuning targeted outreach) in a guest post for sister site Technical.ly Philly.
