We are thrilled to attend the 2017 Grace Hopper Celebration in Orlando, FL – it’s the world’s largest gathering of women technologists! This will be Yelp’s 5th year attending and this year is particularly special as we were recently named one of AnitaB.org’s Top Companies for Women Technologists. 63 companies participated in 2017, representing over 574,000 technical employees across multiple industries. With more than 131,000 women in the sample, the program analyzes data on representation, employee experience, programs, and policies. AnitaB.org shares insights with participating companies so they can continue to build more inclusive workplaces. And we can certainly appreciate building inclusive cultures – after all, it’s what we’re working on here at Yelp.
We learned a lot by participating, discovered areas where we can improve, and are further committed to improving our culture. Read about some of the trends in the industry from the AnitaB.org’s Top Companies for Women Technologists 2017 Insights Report.
Stop by our Yelp booth #2356 at the Grace Hopper Career Fair to find out why we’re an @anitab_org #TopCos. See you at #GHC17.
