And we take it very seriously. As a company, Gem’s responsibility to upholding diversity (and not just diversity, but also equity and inclusion) takes a number of forms. It means fostering DEI in the businesses we serve by building a product that makes hiring a diverse team easier.
It means walking the walk by building a diverse community of Gem employees and modeling a culture of true acceptance and belonging. Our commitment to diversity includes what’s happening outside of Gem’s doors, and our obligation to respond to it.
For talent acquisition teams who are committed to DEI in their orgs, we’re updating our diversity resources as often as possible.
If you’re willing to do the work, we especially recommend our comprehensive three-part Ultimate Guide to Sourcing and Nurturing Diverse Talent Pools, which lays the stakes for diversity, details how and where to find underrepresented talent, and specifies the cues underrepresented talent will be looking for to ensure your org will be a safe place to land.
