All things being equal…except they are not.
Last year I had over 500 women respond to an article I wrote about being laid off. It’s posted here under “Stories”. But here is the thing, of the 500 women who reached out to say, “I get it, I hear you, I feel you”, 126 of them—all over 40—had been looking for a job for over a year.
In fact, when looking at resumes on LinkedIn, recruiters are 13% LESS likely to click on a woman’s profile when she shows up in search—and 3% LESS likely to send her an InMail after looking at her profile. A 2019 study by Universitat Pompeu Fabra – Barcelona showed that women are, on average, 30% LESS likely to be called for a job interview than men with the same experience and skills.
Okay, we fucking get it.
Eons of experience.
Thus enter The DAME Collective. All women. All over 40. From all walks of life, countries, industries and skills. This is a collection of women who are looking to be hired and that you can hire— full time, part time, freelance or contractor. All you have to do is a simple search. You want experience, you got it.
Right here, right now.
