What Are You Doing to Build a Diverse Workforce?

Tags: , ,

In the last few months, workplace diversity has become a regular topic in the news and an urgent priority discussed in boardrooms. As businesses accelerate diversity programs – specifically for women in tech roles — other organizations have stepped up to the plate to offer networking and professional opportunities that would have been unheard of years ago.

Earlier this week two talented members of our engineering team, Marcie Carlos and Nadia Elfarnawani, participated in a WomenHack event here in Chicago. These invite-only events focus on “connecting top female engineers, designers, and product managers with opportunities at tech companies around the world.”

But diversity is nothing new at HighGround. Since founding the company in 2012, CEO Vip Sandhir, has built a diverse team. Our workforce is 40% female, with the same percentage in leadership roles. Women also fill 30% of the technology roles. We currently have 75 employees and plan to hire another 20 employees by Q1 2018. We believe diverse teams are more creative, innovative and profitable than those that aren’t.
