Change your network

I often hear "I want to diversify my workforce, but I don't know how. Where do I start?" A lot of companies hire people from within their networks (e.g. employee referral programs). Take a look at your current network. Notice anything? Do most of your connections look like you and have similar interests? This is pretty common, we are drawn to people who are like us. So as we try to diversify, we need to change our networks. Here are a few places to get started in the Twin Cities!

-Make It. MSP

-MSP Mingles (St. Paul Area Chamber of Commerce)

-MN Tech Diversity Pledge
