How do we go from talking about diversifying your workforce to making it happen, and what policies and procedures work best? This session will explore equitable hiring processes, utilizing bias-interrupting technology, addressing biases, specific recruitment strategies, and how to position your organization to attract candidates from diverse backgrounds.

This session is the first of a three-part Diversity, Inclusion, Equity & Belonging (DIEB) Series, as part of the Board’s commitment to building more inclusive workplaces and cultures. The series focuses on a multi-pronged process of recruiting diverse talent, creating a positive and inclusive work environment and having accountability tools for the long-term. Our goal is for participants to know how to get candidates through the door and into a culture of positivity, openness, and respect. Future sessions will explore strategic planning for fostering equitable work environments after the recruitment phase, workplace accountability, and considerations for small businesses.
