NYCBlend August Event: Sourcing Diverse Candidates

NYC Blend is a collaborative event series for the NYC tech community promoting diversity, inclusion, & empowerment. It is facilitated by VCs operating in the greater New York City area.

It is well established that startups in NYC (and elsewhere) are looking to hire more diverse talent. However, not all do so successfully - & the candidate sourcing & hiring process looks very different depending on the company's stage.

However, there are a handful of companies in NYC that stick out for the success they have had in bringing in diverse talent.

By bringing these "success" stories together with entrepreneurs & community managers at startups across the city at various stages of development, we hope to help educate more startups at more stages on what successful diversity hiring looks like - & how they might apply these lessons to their businesses.
