Avoiding Bias in the Hiring Process

We recommend taking the Making the Unconscious Conscious: Understanding and Mitigating Bias and the Intercultural Recruitment and Selection courses to supplement the learning objectives from this course.

Building an environment that doesn't just tolerate, but values diversity requires the active participation of everyone in the organization.

Course Description

Participants in this course will gain practical information about developing personal and organizational cultural competence that can be applied at work, at home or in community organizations.

This session explores the power of impressions and its potential influence in the evaluation of job applicants. Using reflection exercises, participants will explore the relationship between impressions and bias and introduce learners to key research involving biases in hiring. Participants will leave the session having greater awareness and understanding of bias theory (coupled with case studies) and strategies in mitigating bias in the hiring process. This session includes an exploration of how the pandemic has impacted this area of DEI.
