Key DEI Recruitment Considerations

Diversity hiring practices are more than just job descriptions or boasting diverse employees.  Building diverse teams depend on leadership being committed to elevating employees with diverse backgrounds and diversity recruitment.

You can’t attract diverse candidates unless you’re able to demonstrate that your DEI initiatives are rooted in the value systems of your organization. DEI recruiting is not easy and not everyone prioritizes it. However, studies have shown that more diverse candidates build more diversity into leadership positions providing a broader spectrum of thought and action.
