Embracing diversity empowers organizations to adapt and grow. Diversity, however, extends beyond ethnicity and gender to include the depth and breadth of thought, education, experience, background, culture, and more. By tackling unconscious bias, especially during the search and hiring process, leadership teams can open their organizations to diverse candidates who can fuel innovation and lead strategic decisions moving forward.
Cejka Search Vice President Rebecca Kapphahn offers critical insight on tackling unconscious bias on a recent “Talent Talks” podcast. Kapphahn and podcast host Rob Adams, alongside Cejka Business and Market Development Manager Angela Shultis, discuss how organizations can close the gap between the desire for diversity and implementation of these ideals. Kapphahn shares perspectives on avoiding unconscious bias traps, navigating social media during the screening and review process, and creating actionable and measurable standards that support diversity.
