How to participate

Red Hat will have a single virtual “booth” (Zoom room) that you can join from the comforts of your home. Use this time to ask hiring managers questions about their open positions, their culture, accommodations, and what it’s like working for their organization. Red Hat will also be giving brief presentations throughout the fair, so make sure to check out each company’s room to learn more!

Red Hat, Inc.
Computer Software, Cloud
An IBM subsidiary software company, Red Hat, Inc. is the world’s leading provider of enterprise open source solutions, using a community-powered approach to deliver high-performing Linux, cloud, container, and Kubernetes technologies.

Founded in 1993, Red Hat has its corporate headquarters in Raleigh, North Carolina, with other offices worldwide.

Red Hatters join diversity, equity, and inclusion communities—also known as affinity groups or employee resource groups—to celebrate differences and shared experiences.

Diverse Abilities

The Diverse Abilities community works to create a culture where differently abled people are welcomed, empowered, and supported in their contributions to the success of Red Hat. This group aims to increase awareness and better access to facilities, as well as improve recruitment and retention of associates with disabilities.


The Neurodiversity community empowers Red Hatters by removing the stigma surrounding neurodiversity and mental health and by embracing a mission that celebrates, educates, develops, and creates a network of support for those with neurological differences.

Jamie Edson
Talent Scout for Red Hat’s Products and Technologies division

“I am Jamie Edson, a Talent Scout for Red Hat’s Products and Technologies division, working in Talent Acquisition for over ten years. In addition to my role, I also serve as Co-Chair to an internal employee resource group for individuals with disabilities named: Diverse Abilities.

My work with Diverse Abilities is focused on global engagement and enablement, bringing awareness and bettering access to accessibility tools and accommodations, increasing the recruitment and retention of individuals with disabilities, and of course partnering with fantastic external organizations such as Chronically Capable.

This initiative is near and dear to me, as, I have a Chronic Illness. I was diagnosed with Sacral AGenesis when I was born as my spine did not fully develop below L4. Consequently, I walk with crutches and have always ‘worn my disability on my sleeve’ so to speak, since I stand out in a crowd I have always tried to help people understand what my diverse abilities are. 

I feel people are often surprised when they realize how capable I am. I was the first person in New England to compete in adaptive snowboarding competitions. I was also a member of the golf teams in high school, and during college. I also lived on my own in Manhattan for some time, and largely got around on a skateboard. 

I embrace my abilities and my goal is to draw awareness so others in a similar situation can embrace theirs.”

Isaac Christian
Talent Scout for Red Hat's Early Talent and Corporate

“My name is Isaac Christian. I'm a Talent Scout for Red Hat's Early Talent and Corporate functions and I've been at Red Hat for 2.5 years. I serve as our Talent Attraction & Outreach Lead for our global Pride employee resource group. With a passion for diversity, equity and inclusion, I enjoy partnering with my team and our key stakeholders for our many projects and initiatives to achieve just that. When not working, I have a 3-yo Australian Shepherd / Pitbull mix who requires a lot of attention; I also enjoy cooking [eating], reading and being outside with friends and their fur-babies as well.

I'm very excited to partner with Chronically Capable and can't wait to help find the perfect roles here at Red Hat!”

Tim Baylies
Talent Scout at Red Hat

“Greetings, my name is Tim Baylies. I am a Talent Scout for Red Hat’s North American Sales Team & Information Technology sector. I have been working in talent acquisition for over 15 years as a recruiter and account manager during that time.

It has always been my goal to assist folks in finding their dream career, no matter what their background and physical capabilities might be.

When I came on board with Red Hat, the opportunity to assist in this Diverse Abilities group very much appealed to me. As this group points out, we all have  points in our life where we are in a situation that may make us disabled or underable to perform as we normally would. For some, that is only temporary, and for others, it is a lifelong adjustment.”

Lauren Hadley
Talent Scout for Corporate and Sales Functions at Red Hat

“My name is Lauren Hadley. I'm a Talent Scout for Red Hat's Corporate and Sales functions. I've been at Red Hat since April of 2021 but have been recruiting in the IT industry for the last 10 years. In addition to recruiting, I serve our Neurodiverse and Military Veteran communities at Red Hat by providing talent outreach and advising. Connecting with people to foster and nurture a diverse and inclusive workplace fuels my engine - it's easy to love what you do when your passion and job are one and the same! Outside of the office I enjoy exploring the outdoors with my two dogs, making a mess in my kitchen (not so much cleaning it up), and volunteering with various non-profits in the Raleigh area.”
