Kien shares that at tech companies employee referrals are a popular way of finding talent. If your employee base is not connected to other diverse pools you might have bigger challenges. Single-digit participation in STEM careers for Black and Latinx indicates that companies could be reaching out to make school-age children aware of these amazing jobs. The education system needs a revamp and we need to focus on teaching skills that are relevant.
