At this years HR Technology Conference, Diversity and Inclusion was a big theme among attendees and vendors alike. The proof lies in the fact that both Blendoor and Talvista made the top six startups in the pitchfest and that Talvista emerged the winner.
Add to that list a number of vendors like Greenhouse, Entelo and Hiretual incorporating diversity filters into their products and you can tell this is a growing segment of HR tech. So I did a little digging and came up with a number of tools and sites that will help you diversify your workforce.
Let’s start with some basic tools to help you manage and attract followed by some more traditional sites.
