Our mission is twofold: Make a substantial, measurable impact on increasing Black, Latinx, and Native American representation and facilitate a national dialogue about diversity in the workplace.
Launched by former Goldman Sachs employees Porter Braswell and Ryan Williams in Jan. 2015, Jopwell empowers our community to learn, connect, and apply for professional opportunities while enabling companies to connect with and recruit top talent from the most historically underrepresented ethnic minority groups.
Leading companies across a range of industries (e.g. finance, technology, healthcare, sports, nonprofits, commerce, publishing, etc.) are actively recruiting on Jopwell. Our partners include Lyft, UBS, Airbnb, BlackRock, Pinterest, Pfizer, the NBA, Condé Nast, American Express, and Northwell Health (https://www.jopwell.com/partners). Our media arm, The Well (jopwell.com/thewell), publishes original stories, stock photography, and career advice from Jopwell's community and partner companies.
Jopwell has been named to Vanity Fair's Future Innovators Index, Net Guru's 10 Hottest New York City Startups to Watch, and Forbes 30 under 30 as one of the most innovative ideas to impact the next century. Porter and Ryan were recently named to Business Insider's 30 Under 30 Innovators in Tech and Crain's 40 Under 40.
