Tuesday, July 16, 2019 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Event is full! To be added to a waiting list please email

Objective: Participants should leave this session with a stronger understanding of how to recruit for a more diverse staff and how to interview and assess skills in a way that avoids bias. This will be an interactive session with time for Q&A throughout. The session will be broken into the following main areas:

  • Recruiting for diversity:
    • Self-assessment of organization websites and outward-facing materials. How does your organization represent itself to the public? Is the face of your organization diverse?
    • Job description workshop. Unconscious bias often sneaks into our job descriptions. This section will go over tools to help avoid biased job descriptions, and include a workshop with peers toreview sample job descriptions.
    • Where to post jobs to reach a diverse audience.
  • Hiring with an eye on diversity:
    • Resume reviews and blind applications. This section will review new ideas in how to avoid bias in the application and resume review process.
    • The importance of creating standard interview questions. How having a script helps avoid biased interviewing.
    • What impressions are you giving candidates during the interview process? Who’s on the hiring team? Are you presenting a diverse set of interviewers, or giving the impression new staff mightbe tokens of diversity? If your staff currently lacks diversity, how to address the issue in interviews.

Who should attend:  Nonprofit staff with a role in recruiting or hiring. Leaders, managers, people in HR, and those who want to build a more diverse team
