Jopwell is a digital diversity recruitment solution connecting Black, Latino/Hispanic, and Native American students and professionals with top companies for internships and jobs at all levels. Jopwell assists companies with their diversity recruitment and marketing efforts while empowering its community to learn, connect, and apply for professional opportunities. Launched by former Goldman Sachs employees Porter Braswell and Ryan Williams in January of 2015, the Jopwell platform enables partner companies to search and recruit from a pipeline of talented candidates from ethnic minority backgrounds historically underrepresented at top-tier companies—from tech companies to hospitals to startups.
Numerous studies indicate that hiring across a wide range of backgrounds, skills, ideas, and cultures leads to innovation, improved employee satisfaction, and stronger consumer relations. Jopwell helps companies better access and engage diverse talent by directly connecting each of its partners with Black, Latinx, and Native American students and professionals. In addition to granting companies access to an exclusive searchable pool of potential hires, Jopwell enables partners to create customized profiles that market their company culture, opportunities, and commitment to diversity directly to the Jopwell community. Leading companies across a range of industries (e.g. finance, technology, healthcare, sports, nonprofits, commerce, publishing, etc.) are actively recruiting on Jopwell. Its partners include Lyft, UBS, Airbnb, BlackRock, Pinterest, Pfizer, the NBA, Condé Nast, American Express, and Northwell Health.
