Diversity in Technology

Last week,  Simon Costa - our Client Services Manager at Progressive Recruitment (part of the larger SThree Group), recorded the second podcast in the SThree Australia series. For this episode, Karen Katz - Board member from volunteer organisation Girls in Tech, joined us to provide her insights on diversity in the workplace, more specifically within the technology space.

  • What is diversity in a work environment?
  • Why is diversity important for business?
  • What are the key pillars in the discussion about diversity (for example gender, identity and sexuality and indigenous employees)
  • Are there common themes or issues that businesses and individuals are recognising today?
  • What can help to promote the recruitment and retention of a diverse workforce?
  • What are the main issues businesses and individuals are facing in the workplace?
  • What are the best strategies that will help promote a diverse workplace? How can they work?
