The tech industry is quite a homogeneous place. Of the professionals who work in tech, 72% are white, 83% are male, and the average age is 29. But recruiters are in the business of building teams—and talent professionals are well positioned to drive change in the tech industry by building diverse teams for clients.
By improving diversity rates across the sourcing, recruiting, and placement process, your firm can improve its competitiveness in a tight market. Firms that are adopting focused strategies to attract, source, interview, and place a more diverse pool of technical talent are delivering additional value to their clients and differentiating their firms in the process. In this session, Alison Daley of Recruiting Innovation will share tactics you can immediately implement to source a broader community of technical candidates.
During this webinar, attendees will learn:
- How bias and socialization affect the recruiting process
- How to reframe their work in order to help build a bigger tent in tech
- Ways to improve diversity across the sourcing, recruiting, interviewing, and hiring process
- Strategies for coaching technical hiring managers to improve diversity on their teams
