Unconscious Bias in Hiring (Staff and Faculty)
Everyone has unconscious/implicit biases that affect the way we view, assess, and select candidates. Mitigating the effects of these biases begins with a review of one's own experiences, tendencies, and prejudices. We will also discuss the nuances of the hiring process and areas where these biases show up the most. We will share best practices and tools that can improve your hiring process to help diversify your applicant pool.
