We committed to the following goals in our Commitment to Dismantling Systemic Inequality In Recruiting
- Provide a visible, quarterly report on our growth and understandings as well as our diversity recruitment efforts on our website.
- Create awareness and educate our partners, clients, candidates, and community on diversity recruitment best practices
- Share talent pool demographics with hiring teams pre- and post-engagement.
As promised, we are sharing an update on how we are continuing our growth and understandings as individuals, a team, an organization, a service provider, and as a member of the community. We welcome your thoughts and experiences, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us and start a conversation.
We’ve outlined the next 3 months of training and team discussions with the following approach:
In August, we are using a combination of individual and team training opportunities as we start with building awareness around our own unconscious bias’. Here’s the links if you’d like take a closer look; The Basics of Unconscious Bias, Are you Biased? I am, and Social Identity Wheel.
In September, using a similar format, we will be focused on Communicating about Culturally Sensitive Issues. Here’s the links if you’d like to take a closer look; Skills for Inclusive Conversations, Getting Over Your Fear Of Talking About Diversity; and Outsmart Your Own Unconscious Bias.
As we move into October we will begin work in building our cultural competency. Here’s the links if you’d like to take a closer look; Communicating about culturally sensitive topics, Cultivating Cultural Competence, and What is Cultural Competency?
