Creating a Diverse Workforce: Inclusive Hiring Practices for Local Governments

Thursday, October 28, 2021
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Cost: $35

Webinar Overview:
Diverse and inclusive workplaces benefit from a bigger talent pool, increased employee engagement and trust, improved performance and decision-making, and greater innovation. But inclusive hiring takes much more than simply avoiding discrimination (though that is important too). It requires dedicated initiatives to remove barriers to underrepresented groups and to help overcome unconscious bias in the workplace.

Educational Objectives:
The work needed to create a diverse workforce and a culture of inclusivity is not always easy and you may be met with resistance along the way. Join us to learn more about inclusive hiring practices and strategies for dealing with challenges that may arise.

Human resources staff, management, attorneys/legal staff of local governments or private attorneys with local government clients, and other staff engaged in the hiring process.
