Exploring Diversity of Experience as a Metric in Hiring



Diversity and inclusion is a hot topic for talent development professionals. Employers are trying to find solutions that improve diversity and increase inclusionary behaviors because research suggests companies with greater diversity are more likely to outperform industry averages. Diversity may refer to gender, race or ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation, religion, and veteran status—and not everyone fits nicely into only one underrepresented or marginalized group. People’s experience in the workplace can change based on these intersectional identities.

If your firm’s attraction and hiring process does not consider intersectionality, consider how diversity of experience can be used as a data point—not just job experience or educational experience, but also life experiences. In this session, you will learn more about the experiences of people from intersectional backgrounds, why these experiences are important in your talent initiatives, and how to become a champion of diversity and inclusion in your firm.

During this webinar, attendees will learn

  • Why intersectionality is pivotal to workplace diversity and inclusion
  • Interview techniques to uncover diversity of experience
  • How to facilitate inclusionary behaviors in your firm to become a champion of diversity and inclusion
