Diversity and inclusion are a top priority for company leaders and their hiring teams, but unconscious bias during the hiring process can result in candidates from underrepresented groups being screened out. This program will discuss what unconscious bias is, how to recognize it and how it impacts your candidates and workforce. You'll also learn strategies you can implement to help eliminate bias in your hiring process so you can make better, fairer hiring decisions and diversify your talent pipeline.
