Studies have shown that women and POC are less likely to apply for jobs unless they meet all of the qualifications they find in the job description. We are seeking the best candidate for the job, and that candidate may be a person who comes from a less traditional background. We encourage you to apply even if you dont meet every minimum qualification described or are unsure if your experience could be considered related experience.
