In the latest podcast episode we chat with Bedi Othow, co-founder of DivTal, an online jobs platform that helps under represented minority groups find work in Australia.
Bedi and her family migrated to Australia in 1998 after feeling civil war in South Sudan. After graduating from Swinburne University in Melbourne, she spent over a year trying to find a job.
It was only when she joined an inclusion program for African-Australians that she realised there was a discrimination problem. It was this experience that fuelled her mission to help other migrants by launching a jobs platform with her co-founder Lorna Deng.
Divtal aims to help enable a personal and human connection between candidates and employers. In addition to their skills, experience and qualifications, candidates share their stories, life journeys and what makes them who they are, through video resumes and unique candidate profiles. We partner with organisations committed to creating a diverse and inclusive workforce to join the platform and access the talent pool.
