Sourcing News and Tips
While strategic decisions surrounding Diversity and Inclusion initiatives occur well above where most Recruiters and Sourcers sit, individuals can still help drive, as well as meet, organizational objectives.
A significant source of potential impact is through leveraging pipeline diversity. When the shortlist or interview slate includes more individuals from diverse backgrounds, that affects hiring. After all, diverse candidates can’t be hired if they aren’t included for consideration in the first place!
Individual Recruiters and Sourcers can also help promote diversity by not filtering people out before they even enter the pipeline. A few immediate steps to take are:
  1. Identifying and mitigating our own unconscious biases
  2. Carefully considering the language that we use in outreach messages and job postings
  3. Making a direct effort to discover and engage with candidates beyond our “usual suspects.”
Our theme this week is “Sourcing for Diversity” - what individual contributors in Recruitment and Sourcing can do to help drive and meet organizational goals - and we’d love to hear your ideas as well! Drop us a line, or see “Feedback” below for more ways to join the conversation.
