We have been working hard to get your Wednesday off right. Here is the latest and greatest episode of SnackWalls!
In this episode Kevin Withane was able to give us an insight to his experience working in the legal world. He has observed that there is no lack of diverse talent, just companies that don't recruit in the right places. When it comes to diversity, companies don't need to think outside the box, they should assume the box doesn’t exist and use the whole space to find talent. As more companies experiment with remote work, it could shape a future where recruiters can look beyond their geographical boundaries to supply their talent pipeline. Large tech companies should also target diverse school districts to establish apprenticeship programs with kids before they finish high school. For companies to retain their talent they need to build equity from the top. The c-suite executives must drive their company culture to be inclusive.
Kevin Withane is a Senior Legal Director and Group Ethics and Compliance Director for TI Fluid Systems. He is passionate about pushing forward DE&I and offers pro bono support and consulting to companies and other organizations that are serious about developing or revamping their DE&I programs. Kevin also hosts the Cocktail Leadership podcast where he discusses how business is changing towards a more sustainable, all-stakeholder model.
