Better Jobs With Companies That Care

Dec. 6, 2017

With 2017 coming to a close, it doesn't seem possible that more scandals could erupt surrounding women- but it's happening. There's a new controversy brewing on the daily, and now with CES, the largest technology show in the world omitting female keynote speakers from it's program, we're taking three steps back instead of one giant leap forward. Thankfully, we're out to change that. We're filling our blog and your inboxes with stories of truly inspiring women, like Emily Jones, the first female engineer on her team at Zapier, and calling out companies like LinkedIn who completely neglected to include a photo of an African American in its diversity report (uh… what?!). 2018 is going to be a pivotal year for women- and it's time for us to take our seat at the table, or in Meghan Markel's words, "Where a seat isn't available, well you know what? Then we need to create our own table". Create your own table, or find a seat at a table with a company that cares here.

FEATURED COMPANY THAT CARES: KARAT

Karat also allows for loads of flexibility and remote opportunities, perfect, well, for anybody. On-the-job training, off-site retreats and a chance to really help talented people from all walks of life round out the reasons why Karat is a company that cares for sure.

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

5 Tips for Career Switchers: Insight from Work & Co’s Sarah Mogin on Making Use of Your Past Lives

Sarah Mogin never used to like writing open-ended essays in school. She found herself much more motivated by tangible problems.

Calculus had some of those—she never had trouble with her math homework—but when she was in school she never envisioned just how much she could incorporate that love of solution-finding into her daily work, much less that she would have a career as a developer one day.

30+ Ways Companies Are Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month 2021

Founded in 1989, Hispanic Heritage Month begins on September 15 and ends October 15. The four-week span over two calendar months may seem a bit odd, but it comes with good reason, as it covers independence anniversaries of several Latin American countries, as well as key celebrations in Hispanic and Latin communities. Apart from commemorating major holidays and historic milestones, this month honors the cultures and contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Americans.

We asked some of our partner companies what they're doing to honor and celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month at work this year, and we were inspired by the wide range of responses, from highlighting the impact that employees have in local communities to hosting fireside conversations on allyship to sharing performances and instruction of famous cultural dances.ot only are these companies honoring Hispanic Heritage Month, they're finding ways to spread positive change throughout the year.
