How to create diverse and inclusive organisations1 min read

On this week’s episode,  we host one the SaaStock Oceania speakers – Dale Clareburt, CEO and Co-founder of Weirdly. We just launched our very own diversity and inclusion pledge in partnership with Zendesk. Learn more about the #TakingStockPledge.

Weirdly hails from Auckland, New Zealand and was started 4.5 years ago to help businesses and people stay aligned with their quirky and even weird characteristics in place. It had taken Dale and her three co-founders 3 months to come up with the name of the company. Dale has spent 20 years in the recruitment industry and has an incredibly deep and genuine interest in people. In her time spent working in agencies and services for the recruitment, she found most processes lifeless and unengaging. Weirdly was an antidote to that.

As you will hear in the conversation, it wasn’t always easy and there were some tough decisions made along the way. But now the company is 13 people strong, and very much diverse and inclusive.

Listen on to learn:

  • The most important value behind a diverse and inclusive culture
  • How should companies hire with fair representation in mind, yet make sure the best candidate is chosen
  • What organisations can do to promote diversity and inclusion and move the entire space forward

After an amazing first SaaStock Oceania event, we will be back next year. Dates, tickets and more here.
