Between 2017-18 and 2019-20, the demand for recruiters with experience in diversity hiring jumped 800 percent. This increase is just one sign of the growing need for strategies that put diversity, equity and inclusion at the heart of talent acquisition.
We’ve spoken previously about strategies to build an inclusive recruitment process. With an overarching plan in place, now, we’re diving deeper to add context, optimize your methods, and build upon the progress you’ve made so far with next steps for 2021 and beyond.
