Our Mission

Remove the guesswork from
talent decisions 

At Sigma Squared, we combine econometrics and technology to revolutionize the way organizations optimize their workforce.  

Our Story

Sigma Squared was founded in 2020 by Roland Fryer and Tanaya Devi in the wake of social protests. As organizations reaffirmed their commitment to inclusive practices, it was clear that they wanted to do better - but weren’t sure where to start. 

 

Together, Roland and Tanaya translated what social scientists know about bias in the workplace into a set of mathematical frameworks. Combining these with applied econometrics and machine learning, they built a platform to make proven approaches accessible to everyone. 

 

Why the name? Sigma squared is the statistical term for variance. When organizations optimize variance - or diversity of experiences and skills - across their workforce, they thrive.
