The driving force behind our goal to enhance Diversity in the Workplace
Mission-driven tech isn’t just our ethos, it’s our history. In early 2016,
our story started with a mission: How can we improve the lives of
women and minorities in the workplace? After over a decade of climbing ladders in
the tech world, Ilit Raz knew the odds were stacked against her as
a woman in the industry. And if she had it tough, were others having
issues with accessing the same opportunities? Through a series of eye-
opening conversations with her peers, Ilit realized it was past time to
work towards building a more equitable workplace for all.
That’s when she founded Joonko.
Joonko is on a mission to improve workplaces across the United States by providing talent acquisition teams and recruiters the bandwidth to source quality candidates from diverse backgrounds. Backed by the power of Artificial Intelligence, Joonko is recreating talent pipelines, disrupting recruiting norms, and eliminating bias in real-time all in the name of workplace diversity.
Junko Tabei (田部井 淳子, pronounced Joo-n-ko) was a Japanese mountain-climber who became the first woman to reach the summit of Mount Everest on May 16, 1975. Her relentless grit and perseverance throughout every seemingly impossible impasse she came upon reminds us that no challenge is too big to overcome.
