If you can't hire black and Latino tech workers, you're not really looking, says Walker & Company CEO Tristan Walker
On paper, Tristan Walker could check off a lot of the standard boxes for "Silicon Valley entrepreneur." He has an MBA from Stanford and a résumé that includes Twitter, Foursquare and four years as entrepreneur-in-residence at Andreessen Horowitz. However, the CEO of Walker & Company Brands roundly rejects the Valley's favorite cliché, "culture fit." On the latest episode of Recode Decode, hosted by Kara Swisher, Walker said startups rarely define their own cultures before using it as an excuse to hire homogenous workers.
