We know that historically marginalized candidates, such as BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, people of color) individuals, women, disabled persons, the LGBTQIA community, neurodivergent individuals, veterans, and many more, can experience barriers to entering and thriving in the workplace. Although distinct, these groups share common barriers to accessing social, economic, and environmental resources necessary to achieve sustainable employment. Research shows intentionally creating opportunities for marginalized individuals can benefit organizations in multiple ways. An equitable recruiting, hiring, and onboarding experience is important to creating an inclusive company culture, as well as to increasing employee retention, and attracting new talent.
In this workshop, we explore ways to address biases in the hiring process and discuss implementing inclusive and equitable practices for attracting, hiring, and retaining diverse talent.
