How to Fix Big Tech’s Diversity Problem

By Bhaskar Chakravorti

Fletcher School’s Dean of Global Business Bhaskar Chakravorti in an article for Foreign Policy discusses ways big technology companies can fix their diversity hiring problems.

Chakravorti writes about Twitter’s recent work to hire a more diverse workforce that included an increase in the hiring of African American employees from 6.9 percent to 9.4 percent. Allowing for a flexible work schedule from working from anywhere allowed Twitter to do this.

Could Twitter’s strategy be used at other companies? Chakravorti believes so.
