Battling "Compassion Fatigue" That Can Undermine Diversity in Tech
At PowerToFly, our community isn't shy when it comes to speaking truth to power (no pun intended). We recently interviewed Sarrah Vesselov, GitLab's UX Manager, on everything from UX to combatting what Sarah says is the "denial and apathy that can threaten to undo some of the real advances we've made" in diversifying the tech industry. Read Sarah's interview here.
We encourage you to take on apathy through our VIP Membership program where you'll receive access to all our webinars, networking benefits and more for the weekly price of a latte. And of course, check out the open roles below from companies that have partnered with PowerToFly to address the very challenges Sarah points out.
Five years ago, Sarah Scherzer saw a job posting on her neighborhood's mom-and-dad site and applied. Now she's Director of Customer Experience at Karat, where her role as a mother has always been a part of her story.
Crises can bring out the best in us. It can be hard to believe that when headlines are crowded with toilet paper hoarders or raucous spring breakers under the impression that they're invincible, but it's true. A paper by the University of Delaware's Disaster Research Center found that assumptions about people acting in their own best interest during a crisis are "fundamentally incorrect" and that "human beings…typically rise to the daunting challenges that disasters pose."
