There Is No Such Thing as Diversity Recruiting

2021 Talent Conference & Expo
Attendees will learn specific methods to utilize across different parts of an organization to cultivate inclusion and diversity.

Have you been tasked with hiring and want to create a diverse talent pool? Are you concerned about attracting diverse candidates to a company with little or no diversity? Do you want to ensure your organization culture is welcoming, but don't know where to start? Your success could be derailed before you even begin if you don't account for the impact of unconscious bias, not only of your recruiters but also of your hiring managers and your entire workforce. This session will tap into the cycle of talent management and just who within the organization is responsible for increasing diversity. If that responsibility seems to sit squarely in talent acquisition, as a participant in this session, you will be able to move from diversity on the interpersonal level to a larger systematic level. You will leave with specific methods to utilize across different parts of your organization to cultivate inclusion and diversity on a larger scale so you can manage expectations and meet realistic goals.

Learning Objectives:

  • Obtain practical tools you can use to establish strategic relationships with key individuals to influence organizational decision-making.
  • Leverage internal resources to tackle bias as a barrier to belonging.
  • Utilize the organization's core values to reinforce alignment with the DE&I strategy.
