Happy belated birthday, America! Despite the shortened week we're coming in hot with another certified fresh edition of Last Week in Talent coming in hot and fresh to you inbox.
This week we're digging deep into the data behind VC funding inequality, how tech companies are getting kids across American into coding, the different ways women and men get treated when they keep their salary history secret, whether AI and gaming can deliver an effective solution to hiring diversity, how companies are developing the modern workforce, an in-depth interview with the woman trying to reinvent Uber's culture, and how the skills shortage is costing the British economy billions every year.
Oh yeah, and be sure to check out Slack's podcast episode about the world's first black chess grandmaster. It's a doozy. Good luck and happy hunting.
