Our approach is simple:

do good business.

Words create meaning, actions make impact.

Digital Knack is a female-founded, inclusive company. We’re insatiably curious and mindful of the human experience that every recruitment effort entails.

We don’t sacrifice quality. We run with operational efficiency, tech tools (built and curated), and behavioral science theories. Our relentless effort is to care the most and be the best at what we do — with the results to show for it.

We bring inclusivity to innovation.

Diversity is not an option. It drives growth and reduces strategic oversight – while building successful, dynamic teams. By bringing together the widest range of thought, experience, and background possible, we build better teams.

To us, recruiting responsibly is

  • Renouncing tokenized hiring norms
  • Actively expanding opportunity access
  • Learning identities rather than assigning them
  • Hiring for business need and coachability
  • Working with respect, humility, and honesty

Diversity

We are better together, but only if we are different.

Belonging

Finding your place and purpose while being you.

Equity

Equality is the end goal, we need equity to get there.

Inclusion

Inclusive of all identities and suspending judgement.

We became a
B-corporation to be

Diversity, Equity, Belonging, and Inclusion. These four fundamentals shape our strategy and actions as a talent recruiting and consulting firm – internally and externally.

Be in good company

With more than half of the total US workforce being women, the gender gap in tech is not a matter of a lower population. 

Nor is it a matter of women being uneducated or disinterested in tech (as we're seeing record-breaking numbers of women pursuing careers in tech companies and positions worldwide).

So the real question is - why is there such a gap today, and what can we do to empower the aspiring future women in?

Today, we thank organizations like AnitaB.org that strive to serve women and non-binary technologists by driving inclusive technology.

Katherine G. Johnson paved the way for Black women in the aerospace industry.

In the white male-dominated NASA, Johnson’s manual calculations are what made astronaut Glenn’s flight and landing a success. 

In 2015, she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award in the US, for her work that led black women to work in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, known today as STEM.

Thank you for being a pioneer for your generation and generations to come.

5.4 million adults are living with Autism Spectrum Disorder in America, according to the CDC.

In the last 20 years, ASD diagnoses have increased due to the increased education on ASD rather than the spread of the disorder itself. 

The increase in awareness and diagnoses, now more frequently made in children, women, and adults, can help us all better understand the living experiences of someone with ASD; and how best to empower their human experience inside and outside the workplace.

If Aisha Bowe had followed her guidance counselor’s advice, she would have been a cosmetologist...

Instead, she carved her own path. This former NASA rocket scientist is now a serial entrepreneur, motivational speaker, and soon-to-be astronaut. Aisha is the founder and CEO of STEMBoard, an Inc 5000 fastest-growing company in America.
