  102. 102. OUTLINE Everyone is talking about diversity and inclusion these days. But why does it really matter? Why are people talking about it? DEFINE DIVERSITY & INCLUSION STATISTICS OF WOMEN VS MEN ENGINEERS PRODUCT EXAMPLES We’ll explore some practical reasons why you should be aware of how D&I impacts your business and easy tips to begin changing how you and your team think today. REVENUE EMPLOYEE HIRING AND RETENTION TEAM REASONS What are some ways companies have done D&I right, and how can you learn from them? 3 CASE STUDIES We’ll also cover do’s and don’ts of how to build an inclusive team culture and creating a sustainable environment that includes everyone.

  104. 104. MENTORING AND HIRING NOW IS
  105. 105. ONE SOLUTION IN SOLVING THIS PROBLEMSo, it’s settled: We know that diversity is good for companies on many levels. But we also know it’s not that simple. In order for more women to become senior developers and executives, more women have to get those foot-in-the-door, entry-level jobs first. But hiring junior developers often requires some extra workload on the company’s part. Many companies need to hire senior developers, therefore have a severe problem with the diversity in the pool of candidates with 5-15 years experience.
  106. 106. OUR HIRE THE FEMPIRE PROGRAM Pre-vetted through diverse group On the job training Quality assurance We pair companies with: Junior developer + Senior architect
  107. 107. MENTORING AS A DIVERSITY SOLUTION According to the Association for Talent Development, 75% of executives say mentoring has been critical to their career development. https://www.td.org/
  108. 108. MENTORING AS A DIVERSITY SOLUTION But informal mentorship isn’t enough. https://www.td.org/
  109. 109. MENTORING AS A DIVERSITY SOLUTION Formal mentoring program provides fewer feelings of isolation. This creates a better environment for those who want to pursue a career in the tech world. https://www.td.org/
  110. 110. OUR HIRE THE FEMPIRE PROGRAM Provided w/ formal mentors Support in their entry tech jobs Creating better environments Companies need: Examples of how to support women in tech. We lead by example.
  111. 111. INTENTIONAL HIRING https://www.cnbc.com/2018/06/20/silicon-valleys-diversity-problem-is-its-achilles-heel.html Pinterest created the office of the Head of Diversity.
  112. 112. DIVERSITY NOW Real world experience Pull Requests and Code reviews. Testing When to ask for help and when to try to find the answer yourself. How to help organize and prioritize the team’s workflow by backlog grooming, sprint planning and story pointing. How to creatively solve complex problems. Accurately evaluating your skills in a certain area. How to work well within a team structure. Key things apprentices learn during the apprentice program: Each of our junior developers will be paired with a senior developer who will mentor them, help them on an ongoing basis with the problems they encounter, and ease their transition into the programming world. When you a companies hire our compran, they get the power of 40 hours a week from a junior developer and 20 hours a week from a senior developer. Apprentices are trained on the job, on the company’s tech stack, with the guidance of This Dot architects. When they acquire the necessary skills, companies can convert them to full-time hires.
  113. 113. THE EXPERIENCE PROBLEM So, it’s settled: We know that diversity is good for companies on many levels. But we also know it’s not that simple. In order for more women to become senior developers and executives, more women have to get those foot-in-the-door, entry-level jobs first. But hiring junior developers often requires some extra workload on the company’s part. Many companies need to hire senior developers, therefore have a severe problem with the diversity in the pool of candidates with 5-15 years experience.
  114. 114. INDUSTRY STATS Not achieving diversity affects your company’s profits and productivity: “Executive teams in the top-quartile for gender diversity were 21% more likely to outperform on profitability and 27% more likely to have superior value creation.” Delivering through Diversity, a 2018 In tech, inequality gets a running start. Only 20-25% of entry-level technical jobs are filled by women. Women in the workplace, 2018 The disparity widens as you climb the ladder. 70% of tech companies have no female board members and 54% have no female executives . SHRM, 2018
  115. 115. “90% of companies claim to prioritize diversity but only 4% are focused on making offerings inclusive of disability.” - Paul Polman, Former CEO, Unilever https://www.thedrum.com/news/2019/03/20/unilevers-paul-polman-says-inclusive-companies-financially-perform-better
  116. 116. THE RETAINING PROBLEM Women and men ask for promotions at similar rates, but women fall behind earlier and continue to lose ground, usually at the initial stage of promotion into management. This is often because they have few champions, advisors, or managers they can turn to for advice on how to advance. You can’t be what you can’t see. https://womenintheworkplace.com/#pipeline-data
  117. 117. FEWER WOMEN IN TECH Less women are studying STEM subjects. This means that employers have a gender biased talent poll to recruit from. https://www.nextgeneration.ie/blog/2018/08/why-arent-there-more-women-in-tech
