NEW YORK, Aug. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- untapt inc., a digital hiring platform that uses machine intelligence to match tech talent and employers and Women 2.0, a for-profit for-good company that works to bring women into the tech industry through various pipelines, announce the formation of a strategic partnership to address diversity in technology hiring.
Female engineers have been historically under-represented on tech teams across industry verticals. untapt and Women 2.0 will focus directly on creating a hiring marketplace that measurably impacts and improves upon this discrepancy.
"untapt has had an ongoing focus on diversity hiring and their sophisticated talent platform is a good fit for us," said Elisa Miller-Out, the newly appointed COO of Women 2.0. "As partners, untapt and Women 2.0 will combine forces to realize our shared mission, boosting gender equality in the workforce and allowing companies to become more inclusive in their hiring decisions."
"Our clients tell us the number one challenge they face is finding diverse, highly-talented technologists," reports Geoff Massam, Co-Founder of untapt. "This is a no brainer in terms of company goals, and we're excited to change that reality for the tech hiring space."
The partnership goal is to align the two platforms to offer a combined pool of opportunities and candidates. The relationship is prompted by the acquisition and transition of Women 2.0 to Kate Brodock, current CMO of untapt, who will act as Co-Founder and President of Women 2.0.
