About the event

In this workshop, we will do a deep dive into the myriad implicit biases that can negatively impact our ability to make the best choices in the recruiting and hiring processes.  In a highly interactive format, I'll provide practical guidance on how to recognize and overcome the unintentional barriers we may be creating in every step of the hiring process, including providing guidance on the following:

• attributes of a strong job description and job posting;

• how to cast a wider net in your outreach to candidates from more diverse backgrounds and experiences;

• the significance of your website and social media’s messaging to potential candidates;

• evaluating applications carefully;

• conducting consistent and less biased interviews; and

• best practices for prompt and consistent evaluation of candidates.

During the class, we also will explore together a scenario that allows participants to identify what a fictitious hiring manager does well (and not so well) in this scenario. I also provide participants a number of handouts and materials that capture the content of the class, including recommended statements and questions to incorporate into both job descriptions and interviews to better explore a candidate’s experience in and desire to work in a multicultural work environment.
