Hiring a Diverse Workforce

Ladybug Podcast

We’ve talked a lot about interviewing and getting hired in tech from the engineering perspective, and today we’re going to build on that. We have a special guest, Hilliary Turnipseed, the founder of Hill Street Strategies to talk about hiring from the recruiting perspective. She specializes in hiring and maintaining diverse teams.

We also want to give a big shoutout to Black Girls Code, if you're able to, please donate!
