"We are thrilled to take part in Justworks' BLA panel for Black History Month," says Courtney Caldwell, ShearShare cofounder & COO. "The event is a great example to other tech leaders that if the fastest growing HR technology company celebrates diversity in this way that perhaps there is an opportunity in their own backyards to shine the light on Black trailblazers who work within their own teams. Thank you, Justworks."
"The Caldwells have such a unique story," says Jay Davis, member of the JustWorks Black Leadership Alliance resource group. "Their successes as married cofounders in the tech space provide us with inspiration for not only professional achievements, but a picture of what love and family look like; they remind us that we don't have to choose one before we get the other, but we earn both, simultaneously!"
