Diversity within Tech – Community Findings

by Dec 7, 2017

Diversity is a huge topic of discussion, especially as of late.

Rie Irish (@IrishSQL) partnered with the PASS Women in Technology (WIT) Virtual Group (@PASS_WIT) for our latest #SQLChat. They discussed ways to increase diversity in tech and attract a more diverse applicant pool to your organization.

What were our key takeaways from this chat?

Diversity comes in many facets.

When applying for jobs, it’s ok to get out of your comfort zone.

Mentorship is powerful.

It’s important to eliminate biases when hiring.

Congrats to Trill DBA, who was our #SQLChat winner this month. We hope to see everyone again at our next chat!
