In order to attract diverse applicants to apply for open positions at UC Davis, a number of steps can be taken to ensure you are making a best-faith effort to develop a diverse candidate pool.
What we do
UC Davis Talent Acquisition is committed to ensuring open positions reach a broad and diverse audience. In addition to traditional job websites such as Indeed.com, HigherEdJobs.com and others, all open positions are distributed through AmericasJobExchange.com (AJE). AJE broadcasts our positions to local community organizations that support the employment of diverse individuals. Additionally, our Talent Acquisition Partners frequent job fairs, community events, and other outreach opportunities in order to reach diverse communities.
Our Talent Acquisition Partners are experts on sourcing and identifying niche job boards to reach diverse applicants. Please work with your TAP in order to develop an outreach strategy that is guided both by any Affirmative Action Goals that exist for your open position, as well as our commitment to generating large applicant pools for all positions.
What you can do
Prospective employees make many judgments about how inclusive an employer is based on the language that is used in job descriptions, advertisements, and announcements. Below are some recommendations about how you can make your positions feel more inclusive to diverse prospective employees:
Advertisements must continue to state that the University is an "Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer." It is also recommended for advertisements to state: “UC Davis is committed to hiring a workforce that reflects the diversity of our community."
Talent Acquisition has developed a list of community contacts, organizations, and groups that you can reach out to in order to advertise your open positions to diverse communities.
Additionally, UC Davis is home to a variety of employee resource groups that support diverse staff and faculty. To learn more about the resource groups, visit the Employee Diversity & Inclusion page.
