Founded by Eleanor Brown

Eleanor – a Jamaican national, Rhodes Scholar, and Yale Law graduate – founded Diversiboard to change the way the tech recruiting industry operates amid high diversity awareness and severe engineer shortages. Diversiboard board members have a wide network of connections including deep ties and citizenship in the Caribbean Community, as well as unparalleled access to accredited engineering schools.

Diversiboard was built on the premise that if all unconscious biases were stripped away and talent could be looked at with a blind eye on a level playing field, more tech opportunities would be open to highly qualified people of color.

Board of Directors

We attract the best and brightest engineers and computer scientists from diverse backgrounds and connect them with the world’s leading employers that understand the strength of diversity within their teams.
