Diversity, equity, and inclusion — DEI — is no longer a “nice-to-have” but a business imperative. Although the business case for having a diverse workforce provides a huge advantage to companies, there are challenges that must be overcome.
This session will tackle bias in hiring and offer solutions for employers to diversify their workforce and reduce bias in hiring by leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) and HR technology. We will dive into how bias kills diversity and the myths versus facts of AI, while seeing how redacting information from resumes can help mitigate implicit bias, race and class discrimination, and ageism in the selection and hiring process.
• Examine how carefully designed and properly used artificial intelligence can help eliminate implicit bias in recruiting
• Learn best practices for diversifying your pipeline and making your candidate evaluation process more inclusive
• Understand how making job postings more inclusive and debiasing job descriptions can help you surface a more diverse pool of active and passive job seekers
