  • X-Rate-Limit-Limit: 100
  • The amount of calls available in the current time window.
  • X-Rate-Limit-Remaining: 42
  • The number of calls left in the current time window.

Use Cases

What our users are using diversity data for

Here are some examples of things our enterprise customers are doing with the enrichment of diversity data.

Break the “Build a Business Case” Bias

One of the most heard phrases from HR is “We want to build a business case to try blind hiring, diversity recruitment, etc.”

The reason is because often there's s no factual diagnosis re:

  • what issues there are in the hiring process,
  • how big they are,
  • and how much of an effect current measures are having.

Our API helps build that case beyond doubt. Now you can make a crystal clear business case for investing in new solutions and pilot programs. Based on facts.

How A.I can help Diversify talent sourcing

Using our API you can now see what skills hiring managers look for and widen your talent pool by including transferable skills and talents that match job requirements.

A focus on skills leads to more diversity, because the hiring criteria are exactly the same for each and every candidate, regardless of sex, race, ethnicity, age, or anything else.

Our DiversityData API will help you figure out what experiences and skill sets were hired for and recommends searches and words for your recruiters to use going forward.

Reducing "Analysis Paralysis" bias

A core pillar of modern HR is data analysis. Data is a powerful conversation starter, but it can also lead to us getting lost in all the noise.

Our API helps you design better functioning workplaces, by helping to understand how key moments in your hiring process work.

Measure the diversity of talent pipelines with 100% complete diversity data of your candidate populations. Know exactly where talent drops off and understand how to fix what is broken. Like a surgeon.
