Building Equality into your Hiring Process

We all want to work for companies that can effectively recruit and manage a diverse workforce.

TA, HR and P&C leaders everywhere are being tasked to increase workplace diversity but many of us are finding it  hard to move the needle?

How can we do more and really start moving the dial on our own equitable hiring processes?

Join Hassanah Rudd, Jane Bianchini and Dij Thulasi as they take you through how they are building equitable hiring processes. 

What we hope you’ll take away:

  • How to understand how  your current process is helping or hindering your efforts to hire diverse candidates right now
  • How to break down your hiring process to start improving equality at every stage of your hiring process
  • And how technology can help you build a more equitable hiring process
