Why Your Diversity & Inclusion Hiring Isn't Improving!

2017 Talent Management Conference & Exposition
Workplace Application: This session will show you how to solve your diversity and inclusion hiring challenges in ways you’ve never considered.

Wouldn't it be nice to go into your CEO’s office and say, “We did it! We finally broke through the glass ceiling!” But you can't, because even though we've been focusing on this problem for decades, it still exists. This session will give you ways to solve your glass ceiling problem, as well as solutions for other diversity and inclusion hiring dilemmas that your organization is currently facing. Ultimately, this isn't a tactical issue, it’s a psychological issue—and one you can help your organization, and your leadership, conquer. You will hear examples and leave with tips that you can take back and start utilizing immediately to put your diversity and inclusion hiring initiatives back on track! This session will help you:

·         Learn how certain psychological elements are blocking your organization from meeting its diversity hiring initiatives.

·         Build a complete strategy around ensuring that your organization hires the diversity and inclusion talent it desires.

·         Develop a toolbox of activities to help your talent acquisition team attract more diversity and inclusion hires
           to your organization.
