  • Creative Interviewing - Thinking Beyond the Question
    Creative Interviewing - Thinking Beyond the Question Lori Kleiman, Owner, HR Topics Recorded: Jul 12 2018 32 mins
    Recruiting has to be more then just filling a vacant position – and retaining top talent is all about making the right selection to begin with. Managers need to look at the scope of the role – and how that may have changed since the last person held the position. What do they really need in the future…and how can succession planning be impacted by hiring just the right person. Candidates look for jobs in a new way, and the tools available to managers to screen candidates should be utilized. Technology can be a huge time saver in communicating with and evaluating candidates. Tools in background evaluation and personality assessment will be reviewed to help managers determine which are appropriate to bring into their recruiting process. We will provide participants with recommendations to determine starting salary and the proper preparation of the offer letter. Finally, our discussion will conclude with the tools to identify top talent and ensure they are aligned with the long-term success of your organization.

    In this webinar, you will learn:
    ·Options for filling the candidate pipeline
    ·Embracing technology while still creating a personal connection
    ·Utilizing pre-employment testing at the right time for the right results
    ·Development in background and credit check compliance
    ·Full cycle recruiting goes beyond the offer letter

    This conversation features women in tech who have benefited from receiving and giving mentoring, but it's really for anyone who is looking for a hand up or to offer one.

This is where mentoring comes in. Each of these awesome women has benefited from being mentored and benefit from giving back and mentoring.

    Around half the population have a preference for Introversion, and yet Introverts are routinely misunderstood, misrepresented and excluded; less than a third of managers are Introverts, for example.

He will also reveal how all of us, even Extraverts, have an Introverted side – and how understanding and harnessing this can pay dividends.
  • Diversity and Overcoming Pay Gaps in the Modern Workplace
    Diversity and Overcoming Pay Gaps in the Modern Workplace Jennifer Riggins Aug 8 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    What are you doing to make sure your office is diverse and welcoming? Diversity in the work environment is proven to promote acceptance, respect, and teamwork, embracing differences in race, age, gender, native language, political beliefs, religion, sexual orientation, and communication styles among employees. Movements like #metoo has us talking about this more in certain industries and at a systemic level, but what can we do as individuals in the workplace? Grab your drink and sit down to join us for what's sure to be an engaging episode of WIT: Women in Touch, when women trying to make a change are going to share their advice for how you can too, whether you are in a position to attract and hire talent or you are struggling to overcome these barriers. And, once diversity is increased at your office or university, what can you do to make it work?

    Why should you join? Let's start with some facts because the status quo is unacceptable:
    April 10 marks Equal Pay Day for women in the US (the infamous 78 cents on the dollar), but we are choosing to hold our discussion on diversity and pay gaps on August 8, following Equal Pay Day for black women in the US.
    Women in tech make on average $40,000 less a year than their male counterparts. Women of color in tech in particular often lack the support channels and feel ostracized in their roles.

    This discussion is in part a follow-up to our first episode which focused on the Working Mom. Mothers end up earning about 40% less than what their childless female counterparts earn over a lifetime. The pay gap between white women and black women is the fastest growing income inequality there is, according to a report by the Economic Policy Institute. This gap has grown from 6% in 1979 to 19% today, and it's growing directly alongside greater inequality.

    The main reason to join is this isn't just an esoteric conversation, but a practical one that gives everyone practical ways to make a change, no matter what her or his role is.

  • Growing Importance of Tech Ethics and the Modern Workforce
    Growing Importance of Tech Ethics and the Modern Workforce Jennifer Riggins Aug 22 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    80% of developers don’t feel it’s their responsibility if unethical products go live. Are they right?

    This episode of WIT: Women in Touch features a conversation among women in tech who believe this majority is not right. As a follow up to July's Coed: Ethics conference, a London tech ethics conference, we are grabbing a cuppa and sitting down with women who are actively working on the ethics surrounding data science, decision making, scaling, coding, the psychology and motivation behind it all, and so much more!

    Who should join? While our guests are awesome women in tech, the cases of Facebook, Uber, and Volkswagen are not just isolated incidents and everyone at any level at any company faces ethical decisions every day. We think everyone can benefit from joining this discussion live or listening to the recording after!
  • What’s your conflict style?
    What’s your conflict style? John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership at OPP with Helen Rayner, Lead Consultant Aug 23 2018 8:00 am UTC 30 mins
    All of us have experienced conflict at some point, at home, at work, maybe at school or elsewhere – and usually it is seen as a bad thing, something that is disruptive when it comes to the workplace. Yet some people find conflict exciting, energising, something that clears the air. We all have different approaches to conflict, and if we understood these, if we know how we usually react, we can flex our conflict style and achieve better outcomes. And maybe we can help others to do so too. John Hackston, Head of Thought Leadership at OPP, discusses OPP’s research into conflict and introduces the TKI (Thomas Kilmann Conflict Mode Indicator) and shows how it can be used to create positive outcomes from conflict.

    Flexible Working: How to Make it Work for You and Your Team Jennifer Riggins Sep 5 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The future of work is flexible. In order to embrace people from all works of life and backgrounds is to embrace what technology has enabled -- as long as people have a good Internet connection, they can work from anywhere. This WITty episode will include a discussion on the benefits of allowing your team to work from anywhere (including better work-life balance, more diverse team, often lower costs), how to make a distributed or remote team flourish, how to flourish yourself working from home, and the opportunities to feel connected with a community no matter where you work.

    So grab a cuppa and listen from anywhere that's convenient to you and join the conversation with:
    - Sophie Segal, who founded the Mindset Shift Summit a remote conference for women, alongside developing a portfolio career and running a business in sales and marketing, being a mum of two, and being involved in the flexible working space,
    - Leanne Creasey, who previously launched and ran two of London's most popular coworking spaces, works as a startup coach for new entrepreneurs and is currently working with Cuckooz, who offers design-led serviced apartments alongside Cuckooz Nest, London's first coworking space and pay-as-you-go nursery for under twos.
