Develop Diverse

Our vision is to create equal opportunity in the workplace using tech. We do that by enabling companies to get rid of stereotypic language in job descriptions, employer branding material and other internal - and external communication material. The result is an increase in the number of qualified diverse applicants, a more inclusive culture and a more inclusive brand without the implicitly telling the story that you have to look or behave in a certain way to 'fit in'. Focusing on culture fit and having a company with a large homogeneous group is a thing of the past. To represent customers, society and get ahead competitors we need a diverse workforce and an inclusive work environment. We have built an AI-tool that spell-checks for non-inclusive language and proposes inclusive alternatives for companies to start changing the status-quo today. We have customers like Danske Bank, TDC and Vestas who all have seen a great increase in diverse applicants after using Develop Diverse. Join us today and have a real impact on the way Europe's largest brands work with inclusive communication!
