One roadblock on the path to closing the diversity gap is casting a net that’s too small; another is telling yourself that the underrepresented talent you’re looking for doesn’t exist. It does! According to statistics, roughly 70% of open jobs aren’t publicly posted. Instead, these positions are filled through networking. It takes creativity and intentionality to find and connect with underrepresented communities and lead them to your open roles.
In this session, Lauren Loera, Technical Recruiting Researcher at Netflix, will cover how to optimize your network to generate inclusive pipelines that lead to better candidate experiences and improved talent retention by:
- Identifying and connecting with URG community groups
- Building a network of present and future prospects
- Utilizing internal groups and programs to build relationships
- Data mining to identify the health of your recruiting outreach and hiring pipelines
If you’re looking to genuinely diversify your pipelines right now—and hopefully you are!—this is a can’t-miss session.
