"INCLUSION FACTORS" Initiative
BiTHouse’s “Inclusion Factors” initiative was created due to the growing trend of national conversations focusing on diversity amongst work teams due to the integration of technology.
Tech Connect ™
In 2015, BiTHOUSE started focusing on inclusion factors as it related to European communities and the US entrepreneur / startup culture. Our team has had an opportunity to attend various hackathons, tech events, and conferences throughout the world and have realized a few things are missing. Elements typically missing are those which engage those who are not used to sharing their accomplishments. The "actions speak louder than words" approach is an honorable one, but communication is the key to building brand awareness.
BiTHOUSE is here to help you! We look forward to helping organizations form strategic partnerships and expand their networks to enhance existing technology platforms and diversify current criteria currently utilized to assess success factors amongst the technology community.
