Remote Work Round-Up - June 1, 2017

This week in remote work news, Kate Buckholtz writes in Wired, If You Can't Retain Women, Don't Recruit Them. In the article, she shares:


"...the leak is not, in fact, at the entry point; the pipe is broken further down the line. Tech company recruiters are novice plumbers patting themselves on the back because they found the problem and patched it, except the real pipe burst is a few years down the line, when the women who were just hired leave.

If companies look at this from a business perspective, they are literally flushing resources down the toilet if the person they recruited, interviewed, hired, on-boarded, and employed for two years quits because the environment is (at best) not a fit or (at worst) blatantly sexist. That’s the real leaky pipe."

One way to retain and keep female employees engaged: allow them to work from wherever they work best. That may be the office, but it may also be from home, or at the foot of Mt. Rushmore, or from Mars. Allowing working women the trust and flexibility to work remotely, if they so choose, won't solve all the problems plaguing retention of women in tech, but it will certainly make a dent.

If you agree, try applying for one of the remote positions below with a company that cares about women today. For even more remote, hybrid of onsite opportunities, be sure to check out our Better Jobs page.

How To Handle Conversations on Race with Your Non-Black Coworkers

I sat in front of my CEO to discuss several complaints of racism. I was new to my role as a Culture Director. I was nervous about his reaction to the complaints. But I also knew he strongly supported developing this new department; I knew that he would take the right steps. So I was shocked when I heard him say sheepishly, "I don't know, Noelle...all of this stuff about racism. I just don't see it. I don't even see color. I'm pretty much color blind."
