Degree discrimination ➡️ an invisible tragedy of successful careers that never happen because workers without college degrees aren’t given a chance to show their skills. Employers must remove degree requirements. More: @Byron_Auguste on @nytimes @petercoy https://t.co/HXYxXkWwIg

Missed talent opportunity! Over 10 million Black workers - seeking employment right now - already have skills for better paid, in-demand roles. Let's rewire our hiring practices to prioritize skills over a hard filter for a degree. https://t.co/mHuaNzmIFe

I couldn't agree more with @byron_auguste: I, too, am haunted by the "invisible tragedy of successful careers that never happen because applicants without college degrees aren’t given a chance." https://t.co/yeJcRi6Vyu

Great point by @OpptyatWork CEO @byron_auguste at @EconomistEvents #EconInnov: Businesses aren't doing a favor when they hire for skills and tap the STARs talent pool – they're helping themselves. #HireSTARs

Employers must drop the degree requirement and hire based on skill, not credentials to tap into the full depth, diversity and skills of the Black STARs talent pool., says @OpptyatWork CEO @Byron_Auguste and OneTen CEO @MauriceOneTen https://t.co/ceWqbzDFUS

It’s time for employers to focus on skills rather than degrees. An @OpptyatWork analysis “shows that millions of Black talent without four-year degrees already have skills for better paid, in-demand roles.” https://t.co/v1CqRCW68u
