Underrepresented Talent: Narrowing the Search for Diverse Talent in Technology

2017 Talent Management Conference & Exposition
Workplace Application: This session will address the underrepresentation of diverse employees in technology roles and will show you how to narrow the search for diverse talent, while enhancing your talent pool.

Talent management isn't just about the skills that candidates bring to the organization; it's also about the backgrounds, life experiences and other factors that can make them valuable contributors. The search for right-fit talent is the search for diverse talent. This session will help you:

·         Understand how to leverage social media data to help identify and find diverse talent.

·         Drive a philosophy of inclusion in your search for right-fit talent and understand why diversity is essential to building
           valuable, holistic and creative teams.

·         Learn how to narrow your search for diverse talent to fill technology roles, as well as implement new methods of sourcing
           to uncover and infuse minorities, veterans, women and other underrepresented talent into your workforce.
