“For the American economy to prosper, we need to guarantee opportunities for those who have been systematically left out and left behind,” says Year Up Founder & CEO, Gerald Chertavian on Fast Company. “It’s up to corporate America to live up to its promises to support racial justice reforms.” To achieve a more equitable economic recovery, employers need to take a hard look at their hiring and recruitment strategies and take action to create equal access to quality jobs. “It’s the single most important action companies can take to advance racial justice,” says Chertavian. The companies taking action are making a difference. Bank of America—a partner committed to advancing racial equity and economic mobility—is redefining what talent looks like and where it comes from through initiatives like its Pathways program, which creates a stronger hiring pipeline within the communities it serves through partnerships with organizations like Year Up. Read the article for Gerald's thoughts on what actions companies should be taking.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview. The questions were straight forward, was easy to get through. Wasn't the warmest phone call, but fine. Didn't ask any follow up questions. Was a bit slow to respond via email afterwards.
