EP 59: Applying Analytics to Address Biases in the Workplace
Timi Dayo-Kayode | Co-Founder and CEO of Worksense
10KE grant recipient Timi Dayo-Kayode is a Senior at Tufts University and the co-founder and CEO of Worksense. His company provides people ops professionals with scalable, real-time analytics for identifying, mitigating, and preventing biases in major decisions involving employees. Timi received a grant from the 10,000 Entrepreneurs program (or 10KE), a nonprofit founded by Alumni Ventures Group to help young adults explore entrepreneurial careers. This grant allowed him to commitment more time to work on his start-up. We caught up with Timi to talk about his love of coding, where our own biases come from, how he’s giving back to his home country of Nigeria, and more.
