The subcommittees are focused on three key areas for 2022: recruiting for diversity, DEIB conversations at RevUnit and technology education and growth for underrepresented individuals.
The recruiting committee is focused on attracting talent through evaluating job descriptions, the company website and other sources of communication. It also focuses on bringing diversity into the talent funnel.
The conversations committee is intent on keeping DEIB top of mind through education and training. The tech education committee supports and partners with local organizations, helping to grow designers and engineers from underrepresented groups in their craft.
