Joanna Riley is the CEO and Co-founder of 1-Page. Her company is building the next generation of talent sourcing and engagement solutions for enterprises. 1-Page is also the first Silicon Valley tech company to list on the Australian Stock Exchange. 1-Page specializes in helping companies with more than 1,000 employees and serves several Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 companies with its SaaS platforms. Joanna founded 1-Page with her father, Patrick, and its company was inspired by his best-selling book, The One-Page Proposal. The book provides job seekers with the knowledge to pitch a one-page job proposal to an employer — and how to be evaluated on what they can do — versus being judged on previous accomplishments, experience, age, or gender. Joanna lives in San Francisco and is active in raising awareness of female entrepreneurship and the need for more women in tech.
