SINGAPORE, May 27, 2021 : Singapore-based platform Diversely has announced a key partnership with job board aggregator idibu, in order to help businesses more easily reach and attract underrepresented talent globally.

Along with reducing biased language and structure in job ads across five elements of diversity and assessing and tracking D&I goals, the addition of the integration with idibu means companies can now reach a true variety of talent with one click through use of Diversely.

With the Diversity and Inclusion industry growing at over 50% a year and the numbers of those with D&I in their job title increasing by 63% in the last six months (LinkedIn), the search for a solution to attract and hire more diverse talent has never been more prescient.

Hayley Bakker, Diversely’s co-founder and Chief Product Officer, had this to say about the announcement: “We are so excited to add over 1000 job boards to our Job Ad Poster, meaning our clients can easily search for and select the best board for their needs – whether that’s differently abled candidates, people of colour, more women, younger or older talent or perhaps those with a specific background or ability – and then post with one click.”

CEO & Co-founder, Helen McGuire adds: “Partnerships are at the heart of how we aim to swiftly provide and scale certified tech solutions to the issues of diversity in the workplace.  This is a fantastic win for us and a true leap forward in our vision.”

Hazel Walker, idibu’s Director of Ops APAC says “Diversity is a hot topic right now and on the rise within the workplace, we see partnering with Diversely as a step forward to creating a more bias free landscape for candidates”

Diversely is a female founded business and has raised over US$300k since incorporation in Singapore in 2020, employing a remote team.  Its tech aims to increase workplace diversity globally through AI driven tools and analytics.  The platform is already available and will officially launch into the market from June with clients like foodpanda, Deutsche Bank, eClerx, Dulwich College and Ogilvy using its solutions.
