A message from our founder

Back in 2006, I was the first black person ever hired by an all-white company. Immediately, I felt quadruple the pressure that someone with my level of experience would normally feel. I was eventually laid off without cause, a rude awakening to the inequity in the workplace for people of color and women. For the next decade, I would go on to work in Silicon Valley, often as one of the only persons of color in my workplace.

In 2017, my conviction to solve this problem culminated in, an HR-tech tool aimed at diversifying tech by helping companies measure their diversity rates and connect with underrepresented talent.

Many companies want to change this, and we want to help them.

Now we're on track to becoming one of the most trusted sources for diversity measurement and the largest underrepresented professional network in the world! With thousands of users, companies, and jobs we are just getting started and would love for you to join us in this mission.
