One of the root causes in the gap of having a diverse staff representation at all levels is largely due to ineffective recruitment processes. The processes need to be robust in monitoring and evaluating that all outcomes through the recruitment intake cycle is fair and reasonable. The session will explore how to ensure that recruitment systems that are put in place are consistent, inclusive and aligned with the values of the organisation.
  1. The Business case of having a diverse representation
  2. The value of inclusive recruitment
  3. Understanding and managing biases during interviews
  4. Evidence and accountability in being fair and inclusive

The workshop will be interactive, with anecdotes, and practice scenarios. All questions will be responded to in a sensitive and understanding manner. Taking into consideration that some of the discussions may be highly emotive, the facilitation style and method will model the concept of respect and dignity.
