“I’d love to have more diversity, but we just don’t get the applicants.”
“At the end of the day, we hire the best candidate. Often there just aren’t qualified women in the pool.”
“We understand the value of diversity, but our community is basically just made up of white people.”
If any of the above sounds familiar, this is the session for you! Many hiring managers are committed to diverse and equitable hiring, but find that something is missing: The diverse candidate pool.
Efforts to diversify recruitment have fallen flat, and trends in key hiring decisions have not changed. This session will help attendees identify key issues in recruitment and develop strategies to attract more diverse candidate pools, bring equity into hiring process, and on-board new talent in a more inclusive way. Each attendee will leave with at least three new ideas that can be immediately put into action.
