Set a High Bar for Values

Nicole Hu, One Concern

One Concern CTO and co-founder Nicole Hu describes interviewing an extremely talented engineer with one problem — he didn’t seem to respect the women he spoke with. Rather than overlook his attitude, the entire team agreed that they couldn’t hire someone who didn’t share their values of respect and inclusion. Culture, Hu reminds us, isn’t something “light.” Core cultural values should influence even the most serious business and technical decisions.
