SmartResume has earned the Learning and Employment Records (LER) Inclusive Design: Product Certification from Digital Promise. The Product Certification serves as a reliable signal for educators, administrators, and employers, as well as learners and workers to quickly identify which technologies have been designed and developed to reduce and/or remove features that could result in biases and discrimination against potential end users.

SmartResume submitted substantial evidence to Digital Promise verifying they have designed features that demonstrate Inclusive Designs Principles for LERs by prioritizing issues of equity, access and accessibility, safety and privacy, and usability in the design and development of the technology.

“Learning and Employment Records hold the potential to level the playing field for job seekers, helping learners and earners of all backgrounds to prove their knowledge, skills and abilities to employers. It’s important that our SmartResume platform further levels that playing field with an intuitive, mobile friendly, easy-to-use product for every type of job seeker. We also design our talent marketplace to mask the identities of job seekers so employers can review their qualifications without hiring bias. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are critical components in our design process and are core values of our company,” said Dave Wengel, CEO of iDatafy, the parent company of SmartResume.

“To tap into the exciting potential of LER technologies, developers must understand and prioritize the needs of end users,” said Sierra Noakes, Marketplace Project Director at Digital Promise. “Congratulations to SmartResume for demonstrating that equity drives product design!”

Through Product Certifications, consumers can narrow their options as they select technologies based on research about learning before trying it out in their classrooms. Digital Promise launched the LER Inclusive Design: Product Certification in August 2022 and certified SmartResume in its first cohort of technology companies to achieve this certification.
