- Google Selects ThisWay Global to Accelerate Unbiased Sourcing and Matching, Increasing Diversity at Scale.
ThisWay Global is pleased to announce its acceptance, as one of only twelve companies in North America, into the highly competitive Google Startup Accelerator program. This accelerator is designed to bring the best of Google’s programs, products, people and technology to women-led tech startups.
“Being selected by Google to join this exclusive accelerator program validates our approach of using artificial intelligence to mitigate bias and increase diversity in hiring,” said Angela Hood, CEO and Founder of ThisWay. “Google’s vision is ‘to provide access to the world’s information in one click’ and we share this same vision when it comes to how ThisWay matches ‘all people to all jobs, without bias, in one click.’ The partnership is well aligned because both companies prioritize innovation combined with a desire to improve the world through the use of technology.”
