Experience it for yourself:
Each company is a unique, complex ecosystem whose behavior is driven by the interactions among and between employees, customers and competitors. Computer simulations can capture the causal links that drive overall company behavior, whose complexity cannot be analyzed with traditional techniques. In this section we provide some sample simulations that you can explore on your own.
Affirmative action or equal opportunity?
In one of our Forbes blogs we described an experiment showing that Equal Opportunity is not enough to restore balance in an organization, even when hiring and promotion biases are removed. We provide here a simplified version of the simulation, which replicates a hypothetical company with four levels of employees (entry level, manager, VP, Executive) and two genders (male, female).
Use the simulation to test the five-year impact of adding hiring or promotion biases on a company that is initially balanced. Then try starting with an imbalanced company, remove all biases to see what happens.

Join us to make the world a better place
Aleria is a Public Benefit Corporation: a for-profit corporation with a public benefit purpose. Our vision is to make corporate America - and society as a whole - more inclusive and equitable. Our mission is to show companies and organizations of all sizes the tangible business value of diversity, and how to implement it. To achieve these goals, our Founder created Aleria to develop a SaaS platform, and QSDI, an academic research center to conduct core research, education and training.
As we grow we will always be on the lookout for top talent in a variety of roles at either entity. Diversity and inclusion are in our DNA, and while we are too small (for now) to offer competitive benefits packages, we offer a supportive environment, great flexibility, and the opportunity to join an amazing company at the ground level.
Our headquarters are in New York, but we believe in flexibility and support, and will consider candidates from remote locations.

- Product Manager (as of Nov. 2017): We are looking for a part-time / project-based Product Manager to help develop our SaaS platform, which helps companies plan, execute and measure the impact of diversity and inclusion initiatives. The initial product will focus on startups and small, growing companies. The ideal candidate values diversity and has had the experience of being a diverse member of a company or community, has prior SaaS experience, and can help us spec out the first product, verify product-market fit, select and manage an outsourced UX/dev team, and establish processes and operations for growth. Prior work in any sectors related to talent management or recruiting would be a plus. The position is ideal for someone needing flexibility. While the initial scope is project-based, this could turn into a permanent, key role. FULL DESCRIPTION.
