[B2] Reducing Bias in Recruitment and Selection to Increase Diversity and Inclusion

[B2] Reducing Bias in Recruitment and Selection to Increase Diversity and Inclusion

The values of diversity and inclusion are not simply a moral imperative, but are essential in establishing diverse, innovative and successful teams that can deliver tangible business outcomes. Organisations and individuals need to understand where bias can arise in recruitment and working practices and how to make changes to reduce that.

This session is an opportunity to hear from organisations working to overcome bias, to enable you to:

  • understand the practices that can be affected by unconscious bias and how to challenge it
  • ensure your working practices are inclusive and allow you to retain diverse talent
  • develop D&I toolkits that can be incorporated into strategies for more effective outcomes
