About this talk

Even with the best intentions, systemic practices can thwart inclusive hiring. Unfortunately, this is particularly the case for organizations that incorporate AI and other software into their hiring process. Research shows that organizations who believe most fervently they are a meritocracy are actually the most biased. But how can you ferret out bias from your hiring processes? First, by becoming aware of the unconscious bias that may influence your hiring process: from how your job descriptions are written, to where you’re looking for talent, and finally, to how you interview candidates. Whether intentional or not, you likely have some unconscious bias permeating throughout your hiring process. From the word choices you use on the descriptions, the ways you market the job, or your recruiting networks. There’s so much you can learn about how your process functions, especially when it comes to analyzing the “no” pile. This presentation will dive into individual aspects of the hiring process, as well as the hiring journey more holistically, in order to show where you may be undercutting your diverse hiring efforts. Participants will develop a methodology and new tool kit to create a more inclusive hiring process, and ultimately more diverse — and productive — teams. Participants will learn to: - Justify the need for a cognitively diverse team - Analyze and optimize job descriptions for a diverse candidate pool - Inclusive recruiting methods through “how” and “where” - Understand how unconscious bias impacts the interview process
