Build a More Diverse Software Engineering Team by Closing the Access Gap

SpeakersAgenda
About this Event

Despite efforts to provide greater access to non-majority software engineering candidates, employers still blame lack of team diversity on an inadequate talent pipeline. While companies no longer believe that DEI needs a “business case”, few are successfully eliminating systemic issues that have locked underrepresented candidates out of careers in software engineering.

In this roundtable discussion, Karat Co-Founder and President Jeffrey Spector will share learnings from 100k technical interviews and insights from the company’s Brilliant Black Minds program to address key questions:

  • What are the hiring trends saying about common solutions?
  • Is the bar for entry into a career as a software engineer rising or falling?
  • Among employers, which methods produce the best results in achieving diversity goals?
