Whole Story was founded in 2015 by a tech executive who realized that he had developed skills and strengths through his own experience of overcoming adversity, something that is not typically discussed in job interviews. Along with two partners, he developed the WholeStory technology platform to help job seekers tell their personal stories in such a way as to highlight their workplace success skills. Whole Story prioritizes partnerships with workforce development programs that serve underrepresented job seekers. It currently counts organizations such as Year Up, Worksource Columbia Basin, and Virginia CareerWorks among its partners. WholeStory is part of the Dignified Work team, one of five finalists in the 2022 XPRIZE Rapid Reskilling competition, designed to incentivize teams to close the skills gap by developing rapid reskilling solutions for individuals most vulnerable to employment loss.
