Quality Manager
“Diversity in STEM is important to me because my personal experience throughout my career was negatively impacted due to there not being equal representation in my workplace. This caused me to not share all of my skills and talents, which hindered the success of my company's mission and objectives. Now that workplace diversity is becoming widely discussed, I advocate for generations behind me.”

Our Story

Growing up, Gabrielle Christman spent weekends tinkering around her father’s engineering lab and attending math competitions. She was pre-med in college and spent time in research and development at The Cleveland Clinic Foundation. In 2006, Christman took her scientific background to the staffing and recruiting industry after identifying a need for a better hiring experience for both STEM talent and innovative employers. Fifteen years later, she is recognized as one of the leading change agents and industry thought leaders for recruiting top scientific and technical talent. Through her experience, Christman recognized that hiring teams were spending countless hours searching for top talent on “generalist” job boards. In 2021, she created STEMHUNTER: a new-age hiring platform that offers job seekers a place where they can be confident in their job search and gives employers the platform and tools to reach them.
