I’ve already put forward four new ideas to the sponsors of the Women in Leadership ERG in my organization on how to increase participation in diversity events and gain more allies. These were very well received and those sponsors have gotten me a meeting with a senior executive that they believe can get these moved forward. I can say without a doubt that I will be a much more effective agent of change because of this program!

The Talent Connect was an event aimed at connecting our GET Champions cohort to women, trans, and non-binary job seekers within the tech industry. This event included pre-screening and matching resumes and profiles of talent to our Champions and offered valuable face-to-face networking opportunities between our Champions and the women, trans and nonbinary talent they were looking to expand within their teams.
“Participating in this program has allowed me to extend opportunities within my community network such as the talent connect. Being able to showcase that these diverse/inclusive spaces can be made readily available and do exist allows me to push the envelope. I’m encouraging others to seek these spaces and join them as they DO exist.”
