At A Glance:
What does it mean to foster an inclusive work culture?
How can recruiters facilitate a hiring process that builds a pipeline of more diverse candidates?
How does fear manifest in the workplace, and what can be done to address it in an appropriate, solutions-oriented manner?
Join us for a discussion on diversity and inclusion with Juliette Austin, Founder of FrankEvan’s Consulting, and Emily Miethner, FindSpark Founder & CEO.
This live virtual dialogue broadcast on Facebook Live will focus on how to create a diverse and inclusive work culture, no matter what your role, and how to have conversations that break down barriers between colleagues at work.
- How fear is the root of diversity and inclusion resistance, and how to overcome it
- The down side to creating highly competitive, selective, or very narrow hiring practices
- Best practices for nurturing a culture of inclusion
- Setting expectations, process, and goals to achieve results — individually, and as an organization
