There's more to engineering than a Computer Science degree.

In trying to develop better hiring practices, we can easily make the mistake of equating a neutral process with an inclusive one. And while neutral sounds like a success, it fails to account for the fact that not everyone coming into the tech world has been given the same opportunities.

In this panel, our group of expert leaders discuss how to use intentional processes that make sure that you do not overlook candidates from different backgrounds with different journeys into the tech industry.

Key Takeaways

  • Learn how the access gap manifests in our hiring processes. 
  • Build a diverse engineering team with folks from non-traditional backgrounds, including those without CS degrees.
  • Reframe your recruitment process to be more equitable for underrepresented engineers.
  • Design new hiring processes that look at assessing candidates on potential, to find those ‘hidden-gem' team members.
