It’s nearly impossible without recruiting software or an applicant tracking system to help you automate the massive amount of daily tasks involved in hiring.

Black or White: Moving Beyond the Traditional Diversity & Inclusion Box

Speaker: Elena Valentine, CEO of Skillscout, and Nancy Harris, CEO of Restart Consulting LLC

“But, if you're thinkin' about my baby, It don't matter if you're black or white.”. Michael Jackson’s popular song from the early 90’s only touched on one aspect of diversity. As time has progressed, we recognize that diversity extends far beyond just “black or white.” But often times, that is the focus of our diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives. And with this narrow focus, we can become trapped “in a box “ that inadvertently overlooks other aspects of DE&I. This can lead to employees feeling frustrated and our programs spinning in circles with no real progress. We’re here to disrupt your thinking and approach to traditional DE&I. This highly interactive session will have you seeing more than just “black or white.".
