In order to achieve diversity in hiring, we have to modify traditional HR practices by reviewing procedures for bias and encourage recruitment using alternative channels that widen the candidate pool.
Research shows us that men and women have different patterns when seeking employment. For example, an internal review of promotions conducted by Hewlett-Packard found that men apply for a job when they meet a minimum of 60% of the qualifications listed while women will only apply if they meet 100%. Additionally, studies have found that companies seeking a diverse set of applicants must rethink the language used in their job descriptions, seek non-traditional methods of advertising open positions and utilize a bigger and more diverse set of interview panelists. As such, our toolkit seeks to curate a set of tools that support organizations in these endeavors:
