Speaker: Melissa Dobbins, Founder & CEO, Career.Place

Unfortunately, choosing the wrong assessments or using assessments in the wrong way can lead to bad choices, biases, and even discriminatory practices that violate compliance standards.

But criticism will lead to praise if you take it to heart. I had the pleasure of interviewing Denise Leaser.
