Hiring with a diversity lens is an imperative to attracting, hiring and retaining diverse talent to your organization. It has been statistically proven that organizations identified as more diverse and inclusive are 35% more likely to outperform their competitors and are 70% more likely to capture new markets and clients. Furthermore, in this candidate market we are currently experiencing – two out of three candidates seek companies that have a diverse and inclusive culture.
The purpose of this project is to equip the Talent Acquisition Teams, recruiters and hiring managers with the knowledge, awareness, tools and language to not only address but also mitigate implicit biases throughout their recruitment processes. Some of the topics discussed throughout this event will be identifying and overcoming implicit biases, developing equitable interview processes and providing diversity training for hiring managers as ultimately they are the final decision makers in the hiring process.
