Accelerating tech’s transition to a diverse and inclusive industry
We are an agile, nimble, and very diverse small team looking to make a big change in the world by closing the diversity gap in the workforce and by simplifying access to underrepresented talent.
Mission Statement: Divercity is a diversity and inclusion hiring platform that helps forward-thinking companies and recruiters find and connect with diverse candidates. Our mission is to demystify and solve the diversity hiring gap in the tech industry and to bring more equity and inclusion to it through a combination of community, relationships, and artificial technology.
We pride ourselves on extreme ownership in our disciplines and encourage a lot of learning and communication. More importantly, we strongly believe that everyone on the team has an equitable voice and would love to hear yours as much as possible.

A message from our founder
Back in 2006, I was the first black person ever hired by an all-white company. Immediately, I felt quadruple the pressure that someone with my level of experience would normally feel. I was eventually laid off without cause, a rude awakening to the inequity in the workplace for people of color and women. For the next decade, I would go on to work in Silicon Valley, often as one of the only persons of color in my workplace.
In 2017, my conviction to solve this problem culminated in Divercity.io, an HR-tech tool aimed at diversifying tech by helping companies measure their diversity rates and connect with underrepresented talent.
Many companies want to change this, and we want to help them.
Now we're on track to becoming one of the most trusted sources for diversity measurement and the largest underrepresented professional network in the world! With thousands of users, companies, and jobs we are just getting started and would love for you to join us in this mission.

Successful candidates stories
“Divercity was wonderful to work with throughout the process. Chuka was very communicative and always let me know the status of my candidacy at every stage of the process. Definitely much more in detail than any other company/recruiter I’ve worked with in the past. Will highly recommend them!”
“Working with Divercity was an absolute pleasure as they kept me in the loop every step of the way, and also more importantly, they made sure I got everything I wanted! I definitely would work with the team at Divercity again and I highly recommend using their services.”
Divercity is driven by its mission to solve the diversity problem in tech. We do this by providing recruiting and diversity measurement tools to empower companies to connect with underrepresented talent.
