I started my career as a teacher in an under-resourced district, where my leadership and assessment skills were quickly spotted by my administration. To my surprise, this fresh-faced 24 year old was made a department head and I became a key interviewer and decision-maker in staffing discussions. Little did I know the higher-ups at my school were onto something.
But burnout set in, and I eventually transitioned into the online business world, first as a Virtual Assistant and then as a Project Manager. I was the right-hand woman to ambitious entrepreneurs who had big visions. But their decisions to hire me were based on a referral and the status-quo, rather than a true understanding of what their business really needed to get the best ROI. I was quick to notice the gap between what my clients needed and what I was able to offer.
Meanwhile, I had developed a deep passion for social justice while in graduate school. After learning about systemic racism and disparities in opportunities for People of Color and folks with marginalized identities, I knew where I needed to focus my work.
So I launched Meg K and Co to empower online entrepreneurs with socially conscious hiring practices that propel their businesses forward. We are helping business owners get to the next stage of growth, while directly confronting racial inequity. We start the conversation with people about how to be anti-racist during interviews and in leading their team.
Black Lives Matter. We will do our part to reduce racial inequities and dismantle White Supremacy in the United States.
We intentionally explore and dismantle problematic, oppressive, and inequitable practices.
We maintain clarity in legalities, ethics, and values. We believe that personality tests can create bias, but there is a place for them in the management of teams.
We want to empower the retention of employees through purpose driven hires.
We’ll take care of everything in the hiring pipeline from start to finish, from building out the role, to crafting the description, to posting it in front of a diverse audience, to screening and interviewing candidates. You can stay in your zone of genius while we handle the rest.
We’ll show you how to make your first or next hire in our self-paced, online course. You can confidently make your hire and learn and ins and outs of best hiring practices to get you to the next level.
