“Seeing recruitment tech solutions like AdGrader step up to the Diversity & Inclusion challenges faced by our sector fills me with optimism – for so long technology has been designed to make us bigger, better, more productive, more efficient – do less, sell more, be more profitable, make more money.
We are finally starting to see the evolution of products designed to break down some of the barriers faced by candidates, and it’s about time! Everybody has the right to a fulfilling and successful career and recruiter bias and preference baked into the recruitment process needs to finally get out of the way.
As many recruitment businesses start to look at their processes and focus on making services more inclusive, they will look to their tech stack providers for solutions, those ahead of the curve who have an authentic mission to improve accessibility and eliminate bias will be at the forefront of driving much needed change across our sector.
I’ve loved being a part of AdGrader’s journey so far, I respect their honest approach and what they are trying to stand for – they don’t claim to have all the answers or an overnight magical solution but are committed to developing the much-needed technology that educates and supports recruiters to do more when it comes to Diversity and Inclusion.”
