Published: Apr 20 2021

Helen Young Hayes (https://www.linkedin.com/in/helen-young-hayes-86717327/) joins the show to talk about the future of talent from truly underrepresented communities being the future of work for companies, particularly those looking for tech talent in a time when 1 Million tech jobs need to be filled.

The resulting theme of this episode: Helen shares insights about employees at the poverty line. The lesson here is that serving these workers with professional coaching and upskilling isn't charity. It's actually the easiest solution to fixing the employee shortages that companies are desperate to solve.
