With Mission In Mind: Olenick Diversity Team Q1 Update

By: Shawn Hertzig Vice President of Diversity and Recruiting

At Olenick, establishing a formalized diversity program was an important part of our planning for 2018. The diversity teams mission is to increase technology job opportunities for women, minorities, and veterans within our organization and with our customers and partners.  As a Veteran-Owned and Diversity Supplier-designated organization, we are incredibly committed to “paying it forward” and we’ve made a tremendous amount of progress in the first quarter alone.  I’m pleased to share some highlights from these efforts:  Partnerships are an important way that we realize success within our diversity and inclusion program. We’ve met so many great people and candidates through our partnerships with ComEd CONSTRUCT, YearUp, and Chicago Scholars. It has been a privilege to offer our expertise volunteering at Job Fairs, reviewing resumes, conducting mock interviews, and hosting job shadowing. In addition, this quarter we introduced a three-day IT Project Management Training component to ComEd CONSTRUCT.  We created and executed 3 days of IT-related training in areas of Agile Methodology, Software Testing and Project Management led by our Olenick Consultants to 45 plus CONSTRUCT students. Our participation has given us the unique opportunity to really get to know the participants and students, and our employees are having a great time giving back to the communities.
