HireHer is on a mission to not only help women and minorities find rewarding opportunities in the innovative industries but to also help those industries be more inclusive. It is not enough to say that 50% of your workforce is comprised of women if there is still a culture of sexism and discrimination.

My late sister, Lynne, was a NASA engineer and whenever I visited her in the hospital she told me about the discrimination she faced while she worked. She was a “Hidden Figure,” doing the hard work to help us reach the stars but never truly seen or appreciated by managers and executives. Her experiences led to the creation of HireHer and it is our goal to make sure that hidden talent can be seen and shine. Reach out to HireHer today to learn how we can help your business reach its full potential.
