The pipeline is not the problem. A diverse talent pool exists. Now is the time for you to develop new skills and identify new tools to help you both attract, hire, and retain that talent.
If you are currently involved in hiring, interviewing, recruiting, and/or sourcing talent, then this course is for you. This course is designed to not only provide you with guidance for how best to source and recruit a diverse workforce, but to also:
Teach you how to identify and mitigate both individual and systemic hiring-related biases at each stage of the hiring process
Help you create an inclusive and equitable hiring process from start to finish
Challenge you to reflect on your current sourcing, recruiting, and hiring practices, and identify how best to apply your new learnings from this course
Please keep in mind that while sourcing and hiring a diverse mix of people should be a priority for your organization, equally as important is ensuring that you are establishing both an equitable and inclusive workplace for existing and future employees. If you haven’t already, we encourage you to check out our DEI 201 course, which is designed to guide you through how to develop a holistic DEI strategy that goes beyond just recruiting and sourcing, but also takes into consideration leadership engagement, budgeting, data & metrics, and more.

- Hiring Managers
- Talent Sourcers
- Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) Professionals / Practitioners
