The Grace Hopper Celebration (GHC) is an all-time favorite event for women technologists across all industries. This year’s event will be held in Houston, Texas on September 26th-28th—that’s just around the corner, and we can’t wait!
GHC is the world’s largest gathering of women technologists, from scientists and engineers to product and program managers, as well as students and recent graduates. The conference is fueled by endless inspiration, excitement, and positive energy around women working in technology and the growing job opportunities they have in these fields.
Diversity in teams, whether at large enterprises or early-stage startups, is as key to business growth as company culture. Here at Eightfold, we know that building diverse teams is a high priority for companies – we are both proud and honored that we enable companies to easily connect with female technologists at GHC 2018.
As the conference grows each year, connecting with the right prospective partners and employees become increasingly important. Attendees receive many inbound leads from recruiters and have a hard time navigating the multitude of booths. It is hard for them to sift through the relevant job opportunities companies have and how to learn more about them. Company representatives and recruiters also face challenges making meaningful connections with relevant, high-potential candidates.
Eightfold is here to help. With our AI-powered Talent Intelligence Platform, companies can:
- Pre-screen to identify relevant positions for GHC attendees, and precisely reach out to qualified candidates ahead of time by uploading all resumes from the GHC resume database and matching them to open positions (our customers have already saved hundreds of hours pre-screening GHC resumes).
- Generate interesting, immediate, customizable calls-to-action from their campaigns, and focus on incorporating live interactions such as events, speakers, and career booths at GHC.
- Track results and see immediate impact via campaign and diversity dashboards (our customers have achieved as much as seven times greater response to emails sent through Eightfold).
- Continuously grow your repository of diverse candidates and nurture relationships even if the attendees are not right for open positions today. Our platform will continually evaluate all candidate profiles to surface the right candidate at the appropriate time.
Employment is the backbone of our society. We’re excited to help candidates realize their full potential, and simultaneously help companies find the right person for the right role at the right time. Engaging women technologists at GHC is an example of how we’re solving employment challenges faced today, and we can’t wait to see these women shape the future talent of many companies!
