DEI in Hiring Part 1

DEI in Hiring Part 1 – How to Recruit with DEI in Mind

Thursday, March 4, 2021 (1:00 PM - 2:00 PM) (PST)


Increasingly, tech companies are looking to hire a more diverse talent pool, one that will reflect the broader community. However, more often than not, our applicant pool is not as diverse as we hoped for. 

This session will explore strategies for short and longer term recruitment to attract the diversity you're looking for. Written materials and tools will be provided.

We've partnered with Leah Shumka, Manager of Sexualized Violence Education, Prevention and Support at the faculty of Equity and Human Rights, UVic to explore DEI in an interactive format with actionable next steps.  

Please take the time to share your questions with us as part of the registration process so that we can make this session as applicable and actionable as possible. 

We want to make this session as accessible as possible and continue this work in our community. All ticket sales directly fund the continuation of our DEI education offerings.

Register for all 3 sessions:

Part 1: Recruiting

Part 2: Interviewing

Part 3: Onboarding
