What is the impact of the words we use?

Enhanced writing platform Textio uses machine learning and natural language processing to take the guesswork out of business communications and provides predictive analytics designed to help companies recruit a diverse workforce and build an inclusive culture.

The 120-strong Seattle-based technology company, led by CEO Kieran Snyder, has gone through a transformation of its own over the past two years, expanding its product range while using its own staff completely remotely and recruiting more people outside of Seattle. Surface.

In the process, the company built its own in-house online tool for participatory timebox conversations, for team building and collaboration among its employees. Dubbed “Umeo”, it’s not a product…at least not yet.

Snyder, who was named CEO of the Year at the GeekWire Awards 2021, joins us in this episode of the GeekWire Podcast for a conversation about the importance of language, the evolution of Textio, the future of workplace technology, regional differences in business language and her formative experience as a “Scrabble hussle” in college in Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Square.
