Building diverse engineering teams through inclusive hiring

December 11 in San Francisco's Financial District


technical interviewing is painful. it doesn't have to be.

Few engineers will tell you they enjoy running the gauntlet presented by the standard hiring experience. With so few good examples to build from, lots of technical interviewing feels more like a hazing.

We can show you how to fix it.

Join Vaya for a day-long training on December 11 to learn how to build a hiring process that works better for everyone. We'll teach you how to turn your talent needs into a hiring workflow that not only fosters a diverse candidate pool, but also makes things easier on your own organization.

We'll even give you a sweet introductory price.

What you'll learn:

  • The basics of diversity and inclusion for the workplace
  • How to write job descriptions that accurately describe your needs while encouraging a broader pool of applicants
  • Options to counter bias in resume selection
  • How to screen applicants without generating false negatives
  • Tools for assessing technical ability consistently between candidates
  • Offer processes that convince candidates to sign

You'll have the opportunity to ask questions throughout, while participating in hands-on activities to see these topics in action.

Who is this for?

This training is for engineering leadership frustrated with the current ways of hiring, as well as other leaders who oversee talent processes in their organization.

Hiring better is about giving candidates space to clearly show their skills, insights and initiative. Few existing processes succeed in offering this across the board. It doesn't have to be like this. With deliberate thought and planning, you can make all candidates feel great and take a lot of stress out of the process for your team.

We'll show you how.
