Thanks - Can't Stop, Won't Stop!
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
We can't say it enough. Thank you to all who took the time to vote for us in the Jobs Madness contest. With your help, we were able to advance to the final round! This gives Akimbo the opportunity to pitch at the Close It Summit, a conference bringing together thousands of thought leaders, investors, and social enterprises who are actively finding solutions to close the skills gap and bridge the opportunity divide.
Can't Stop, Won't Stop.
We are currently focused on connecting with organizations who help shape the talent companies need by establishing critical partnerships with organizations like Goodwilland The Learning Shelter in San Francisco. But now it is time to dramatically increase the impact of these great organizations by partnering with employers looking to hire these talented and unjustly marginalized job-seekers.
Help us keep the momentum going.
We recently launched an initiative called Companies for the New Economy. We aim to build a large network of forward-thinking companies who are looking to create a more inclusive workplace culture. After all, it is proven that unique backgrounds and perspectives produce valuable work that new economy companies need.
We are asking each of you to recommend one company - a small business, a start-up, a corporation - to join in our initiative. Please pass along this link:bit.ly/forinclusion or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Help us kick-start the movement for more inclusive hiring practices and workplace cultures!
