What you will learn:
“Decolonizing does not mean the same thing as diversity and inclusivity. You can have diverse spaces and still have colonialism…” – Dr. Rosales Meza
Dismantling inequitable talent and recruitment processes and systems is not just for human resources professionals. Everyone contributes to workplace culture. Everyone is a recruiter. This workshop will dig into common inequitable talent management and acquisition practices that do not attract (*and keep*) Black and brown talent. Using a critical lens, we will cover: strategies for moving leadership towards decolonized practices and systems, designing recruitment processes that center lived experience and cultural capital and implementing equitable interview protocols. This #wokeshop is open to everyone, but focuses of the roles of leaders in the organization managers, senior leaders and beyond.
