Recruitment Leaders: Moving the Needle in D&I

Today over 90% of businesses have D&I strategies and over 650 CEOs have publicly committed to making D&I a priority. The reason: D&I is not just about being fair, but (as proven time and again by research) is about driving better business performance. Yet, for many organisations across all sectors, little progress has been made in achieving D&I goals -- and leadership teams are looking to Recruitment to solve the problem. Indeed, Gartner research has shown that Recruitment teams expect D&I to be the number one topic CHROs pay more attention to next year, and over 70% of D&I leaders identified influencing diversity recruitment efforts as their top priority. 

In this seminar, experts and practitioners in Recruitment and D&I will come together to address the critical question: how can Recruitment leaders move the needle in achieving organisation-wide D&I goals? Designed for Recruitment leaders and their teams, the seminar agenda includes:

  • D&I and Recruiting a Gen Z Workforce: Experts from Universum and Institute for Student Employers will share their research in student and young professional recruitment trends and D&I expectations, as well as best practices for enabling an inclusive candidate experience. 
  • Keeping Bias Out of Recruitment: Recruitment technology pioneer and visionary Charles Hipps will discuss tools and technology leaders can look to today to help remove and monitor for bias in Recruitment and create a more inclusive hiring experience.
  • Lessons and Inspiration from Leading Practitioners: A panel of Recruitment leaders and practitioners will share their lessons learned, best practices, and strategies for achieving D&I success in Recruitment.
