In the past year or two a number of diversity job boards have launched targeting certain underrepresented groups. Employers are definitely increasing their advertising spend with these types of sites.
I found this story about the site Black Tech Talent in the Minnesota newspaper recently. (blacktechtalent.org)
Minnesota Cup finalist Black Tech Talent matches tech professionals with companies looking for diverse talent. The online community is also a place where Black professionals can have honest conversations about the challenges of being a racial minority at tech companies, said founder Michael Jackson.
Jackson started working on his platform a month before Floyd’s death. He launched the job board in July 2020. It now has 40 corporate partners including Target, HealthPartners, Sunrise Bank, and the Minnesota Twins and its owner, Pohlad Cos. Most of the 4,000 or so Black professionals on Jackson’s site are from Minnesota.
Though the site is new, BTT looks like they are taking a community focused approach to building the business. They are publishing content, collecting email signups aggressively and also holding in person and virtual events.
The site appears to be a WordPress design and job posting prices start at $150 for 30 days.
