Stacey A. Gordon Talks Diversity, Inclusion and Careers With Creighton Taylor

This week I was joined by Creighton Taylor, founder and CEO of Guided Compass, a technology platform that he fondly refers to as “eHarmony for students and employers.”

Creighton and the Guided Compass team have developed a systematic approach that matches students from lower socioeconomic backgrounds with resources, tools, and opportunities in a vast array of industries. 

Never before has there been a better time for people to make their own path. Unfortunately, issues of access still create a chasm between individuals and the means to do just that. In this interview, Creighton and I discuss how Guided Compass and other organizations are working to bridge that gap by providing tools and resources (often free or low-cost) to help people upskill and enter the career path of their choosing. 

Creighton also shares a practical experiment that he believes will not only help companies understand the foundational benefits of a diverse workforce, but will also provide valuable data that helps other businesses and industries move forward in developing a culture of trust and inclusion in their own workplaces.
