Hiring For Diverse Talent: Your Holiday Reading List

One of our Senior Sales Executives at PowerToFly pulled together a "holiday reading list" for our partners filled with a number of articles I've been meaning to catch up on. Since the next two days should be relatively quiet on the work front - and crazy on the home front - I'm sharing this list. Perhaps you can steal away from the stuffing for a few minutes to read these insights.


1. “Numbers Take Us Only So Far” by Maxine Williams, Facebook's Global Head of Diversity and Inclusion

Read the article here

I interviewed Maxine over a year ago for Business Insider. You can watch the video here where I was riveted by how she's set up inclusion trainings as part of Facebook's on-boarding process. In her recent article for Harvard Business Review, Maxine makes the argument that we need to expand how we collect diversity data.

"...data volume alone won't give leaders the insight they need to increase diversity in their organizations. They must also take a closer look at the individuals from underrepresented groups who work for them—those who barely register on the analytics radar."

2. The Programs At Top Companies To Move Women Out of Middle-Management: WSJ

An interesting read from the Wall Street Journal that showcases what IBM, Chevron and Intuit are doing to give women the support they need to ultimately arrive at the C Suite. Why?

The share of women in middle management was unchanged at 33% and rose slightly in C-suite roles to 20%, concludes a new study by LeanIn.Org and McKinsey & Co.


3. Competing For Talent in The Digital Age: A CEB Report

Read the report here

A quick read that reinforces the work we're doing at PowerToFly by taking a market driven, analytics approach to finding under-represented but over messaged women in tech, sales and digital.

Candidates are a recognized stakeholder in the hiring process. This status is driven by scarcity in some sectors as well as candidate expectations. Organizations are learning to build in interactive touch points that mirror the candidates' journey and allow candidates to explore and evaluate the role and the organization while informing candidates' decision to commit to a full application.

Message me @kzaleski on Twitter or via my LinkedIn profile here if you have more suggestions for our holiday reading list at PowerToFly.

And Happy Turkey Day

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.
