Panel Discussion: Tapping Untapped Talents (Focus: Persons with Disabilities)



Many recruiters have standard talent pools they habitually recruit from. However, when you rely too much on your standard pools, you catch the same fish over and over—or you run out. It is time to look to additional sources to recruit a diverse array of qualified candidates. During this webinar, a panel of experts will discuss recruiting from pools such as formerly incarcerated people, neurodiverse individuals, and people with disabilities.

During this webinar, attendees will learn

  • Strategies and practical tips on how to tap into unique populations of potential workers
  • How to develop inclusive recruitment practices
  • Ways to improve the overall diversity of their talent pools
