The Black and Woman-Owned HR app modernizes the corporate culture ecosystem by connecting real HR experts to female professionals in real-time to discuss issues at work
Workplaces have been seeing significant shifts in their workforces and cultures, especially in the last year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While employee sentiments demand for more support and care from employers, their HR departments remained preoccupied with managing compliance and risk. At the end of the day, traditional human resources departments tend to have the company’s best interests at heart rather than the employee’s — especially when it comes to women in the workplace.
