Our DEI Leader Network October event was a lively discussion about bias in hiring and what employers can do about it. If you missed the live event, you can view it here.
Everyone has biases because it allows our brains to process enormous amounts of information quickly and efficiently. And while these blind spots help us in our daily lives, they can also have an undesirable impact on talent attraction and recruiting. HR leader Erin Thrower, CEO of Agile Consulting, shared the different ways that bias shows up in the hiring process, questions to avoid, and tips for solving bias-related problems.
Diversity Works has created a Diversity Works Bias in Hiring tip sheet that covers a number of concrete ways to eliminate bias in the hiring process. We encourage you to share it with your hiring managers and recruiters.
Please join us on December 15 at 1:00 PM ET for our next live event. Follow us on LinkedIn for more information about the DEI Leader Network events.
