There has been an unbelievable amount of change over the past year. From a global pandemic to social and political unrest to a total change in how we work around the world. Throughout these tumultuous times, Entelo has worked to remain a constant force for good.
Last week, Entelo hosted a webinar discussing best practices for building and sustaining DE&I through the virtual lens. Moderation by Entelo’s VP of Customer Success, Andre Boulais, our panelists included Kevin Walters, Diversity L&D Recruiting Leader at Amazon; Aisha Nawaz, Senior Talent Acquisition Recruiter for Schneider Electric; and Eddie Moncayo, VP of Talent Acquisition and Development at Jumpcrew.
The demand and importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives in organizations has never been higher than in 2020.
The global pandemic has disrupted work in ways unseen in centuries.
Entelo recently led a webinarfocused on the important steps and measures of success for building a diversity and inclusion program from scratch. Moderated by Entelo’s Senior Customer Education & Engagement Manager, Molly Siegel, our panelists included Kai Johnson, Corporate Marketing Manager at Salesforce; Kevin Walters, Diversity L&D Recruiting Leader at Amazon; and Andre Boulais, VP of Customer Success at our own Entelo. each shared the perspectives of three separate leaders championing DE&I efforts for different departments highlighting that Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is not just an HR initiative but an entire company initiative.
Here at Entelo, we understand the longevity of work and the importance of being authentic when approaching DE&I initiatives. A couple of weeks ago, we sponsored a webinar discussing meaningful and practical ways for enacting these initiatives organization-wide.
Entelo’s commitment to diversity runs deep, as does our relentless desire to make the world a more inclusive place. As the recognized industry leader in diversity technology since 2014, “diversity” and “inclusion” have never been buzz-words to us. They’re core values held by our teams, and drive our decisions, from Engineering to Customer Success. From mitigating bias in sourcing to building diversity within talent pools, there’s a reason that we power many of the Fortune 500 on their journey to building a more diverse and inclusive workforce.
2020 has cast a glaring light on the disparities running rampant within our communities. While these systemic inequalities are no revelation to the communities victimized by them, for others in our society the last few months have been eye opening – leaving many asking how the year can be 2020 with seemingly little progress towards true equity.
2020 has cast a glaring light on the racial and socioeconomic inequalities running rampant within our communities. The COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the world and our nation, has disproportionately affected African Americans and People of Color, who – due to gross economic disparities – make up the largest percentage of essential workers. This has pulled back the curtain on the realities of systemic racism and the persecution of the Black community, with an intensified spotlight on police brutality, and the growing Black Lives Matter movement across the country and globe demanding meaningful change.
If your executive team looks like a mistaken case of copy-and-paste, then the organization below them will be a CC of the same.
If you don’t prioritize diversity early on in the interview process (at the top of the funnel), then you’re going to get a homogenous bottom of the funnel (new hires).

Yet amid all of the celebrations and stadium-wide-chants following the Women’s Championship win in Lyon, a newcomer joined the ranks: “Equal Pay”.
Atlassian is guided by the belief that great products are a direct result of diversity; this principle informs the vision and direction of the company everyday. For the Atlassian talent team, that means approaching their entire recruiting process–from sourcing all the way to closing a candidate– through a diverse lens.
Today, Entelo releases our second report in a series which quantifies gender inequality across industries. Much like our first analysis of the technology industry, this report aims to measure gender inequality by job title, sub-sector, and seniority. This time around, however, we’ve set our sights on the world of financial services.
