WeSolv is a platform that connects companies with more diverse, highly qualified job candidates. Ashaolu conceived of WeSolv after experiencing difficulty generating job opportunities despite a successful MBA. After landing a Gallup role in Chicago, she led teams focused on performance and workforce strategies. She used advanced data collection methods and predictive analytics to increase hiring practices.

Why They Made the Worthy 100: Under Ashaolu’s leadership, WeSolv has made national news by combining its diverse hiring advanced analytics techniques with Fortune 500 partnerships, including companies like Discover and Salesforce. WeSolv helps these companies create real-world challenges that let underrepresented MBA students showcase their abilities using only performance metrics that are unaffected by gender or racial bias. Because it benefits both sides of such relationships, WeSolv has garnered relationships with more than 45 MBA programs and constantly matches them with its growing list of corporate clients. Regarding the experiences that led to her founding WeSolv, Ashaolu said in a recent op-ed for Crain’s Chicago Business, ”while I initially struggled in the recruiting process, I found that real projects and case competitions became a means to reduce bias and showcase my skills and talent. I was still the same candidate but could now speak to demonstrated ability.”
