Porter Braswell and Ryan Williams co-founded Jopwell—a diversity hiring platform focused on matching Black, Latinx and Native American students with major companies—after spending a few years buying and selling currencies at Goldman Sachs. The two converted their Wall Street experiences into a technology platform designed at helping underrepresented groups of job seekers, and through that process, they’ve learned a lot about what works (and what doesn’t work) when creating a more diverse company.

Braswell, the CEO of Jopwell, shared some of his best brand practices with Adweek at the Brandweek: Challenger Brands event held in New York last week. According to Braswell, that includes “creating intentional cultures and settings where people can bring their authentic selves to work.”
