Thank you for your submission.
Harvard Business Review recently noted, “When it comes to hiring diverse candidates, good intentions do not necessarily lead to good results. Often well-intentioned hiring managers end up inadvertently weeding out qualified candidates from underestimated backgrounds because of unconscious bias.” We know that black individuals, people of color, and individuals with conviction histories are at a greater disadvantage when it comes to accessing fundamental resources – including employment.
By acknowledging the unfair playing field and giving all applicants an equal chance—especially through diversity and belonging initiatives—employers have a chance to right a systemic wrong. Join Crosschq and Checkr as we talk through how to advance fairness in hiring. Our panel of experts will offer insight into their own experiences in combating biases as well as best practices in implementing fairness initiatives.
