Did You Know?

Diverse workplaces start with inclusive talent management.

In order to truly embed inclusion within an organization, you must examine your talent management processes to ensure that they are free of biases and barriers.

This will require you to ensure that your recruitment efforts are rooted in inclusive hiring practices, including how to minimize bias throughout the application, interview and decision-making processes.
