In anticipation of our April 20th Changing the Conversation event (buy your ticket now!), we interviewed each of our panelists, asking them to describe a challenge they've overcome, share a piece of advice, and talk to us about their passion for diversity and inclusion in the workplace. We are excited to start by introducing you to Alexa Scordato, VP of Marketing at Stack Overflow. Read on to see what Alexa had to say!
At CFW Careers, we’ve been devoted to helping women advance their careers since our founding by David King in 1973. While we’ve contributed to progress over the past decades, we all recognize that much work remains to be done to achieve equality for women in the workplace. Coming into 2017, we’re taking Changing the Conversation to the next level, not just inspiring individual careers, but looking at the organizational context and the need to engender a corporate culture and corporate structures that create pathways to leadership for women. Join us on April 20th from 6:30-8:30 at Stack Overflow to be a part of the conversation on implementing change for equality!
Despite the sometimes-grueling nature of interviewing, it's a critical period for every company. Word-of-mouth is one of the fastest ways a company's culture and employer reputation spreads. If a candidate has a positive interview experience, they're more likely to spread the word that yours is a great company to work for, so we wanted to share some advice on how to make sure that you're leaving candidates with a positive impression from day one. We spoke with Michaela Kron, PR Manager at Duolingo, to get an idea of what made her own interview experience with her new company a positive one.
