What are the hiring trends saying about solutions? Is the bar for entry rising or falling? Since only a small percentage of applicants make it through the process to a technical interview, is it time to loosen the pedigree standards? What are the culture obstacles and structural barriers–and how can they be broken down? Among employers, which methods produce the best results in achieving diversity goals?
