In these times of COVID-19, with the combined challenges of isolation, uncertainty, and disruption, it is harder than ever to keep employees engaged, motivated, and productive. Where better to turn than to the wisdoms of diversity & inclusion (D&I), a discipline all about creating welcoming, engaging environments. Join us as we present actionable guidance on how to sustain our teams through core D&I tenets of inclusion, awareness, and empowerment.

In 2016, Melissa Dobbins formed, a solution that removes bias from hiring by shifting the focus from resumes to qualifications.

Removing bias from talent evaluation does more than engaging a wider candidate pool in today’s fierce competition for talent; it drives diversity, efficiency, and compliance. Too many companies attempt to tackle these issues separately, but while bias remains in the selection process, diversity and compliance challenges will persist. Even worse, companies are turning to technology for the ‘easy solution’ just to automate existing biases.

Ms. Dobbins’ company,, tackles bias and the resulting diversity, compliance, and efficiency challenges by removing bias-laden resumes from talent evaluation, replacing them with a solution that combines the best of technology and human touch to objectively measure candidate qualifications. Candidates remain anonymous, enabling fair evaluation and comparison without names, gender, ethnicity, age, or other bias-triggering information.
