Broadening the On-ramp for Women-run Companies

Join MergeLane on 6/26: Lessons in Tech Recruiting and Lunch at Google

The shortage of tech talent is a challenge for perhaps every company with which I’ve worked. Since this is a constant topic of conversation not only among startups, but companies at every stage, MergeLane has invited experts from three innovative companies at totally different growth stages to share their lessons learned. This should be great insight for both professionals recruiting tech talent and tech professionals searching for new opportunities. This event will be hosted by Google Boulder and includes lunch in the very cool Google employee cafeteria. Hope you can join us!

The shortage of tech talent is perhaps the biggest challenge facing technology companies today. In this interactive panel, we’ll discuss lessons learned in recruiting top-notch talent in large, mid-sized and small companies. Elizabeth Kraus, the co-founder of MergeLane, an accelerator for startups with at least one woman in leadership, will interview Amanda Dufresne, Engineering Recruiter at Google; Dan Berg, Chief Product Officer at Solidfire; and Sherisse Hawkins, CEO of Beneath the Ink to provide tangible advice for companies at any stage.

This event is hosted and sponsored by Google. The panel discussion will be held from 11:30am – 12:30pm with a casual lunch to follow.
