November Meet Up : Fairness in Recruitment

November 24 @ 6.45 pm - 8.00 pm

How can increasing diversity balance cohesiveness in the workplace

Having a workforce that is exclusively one race, one religion, or one gender can put off potential clients and suppliers and scare away talented potential employees. A lack of diversity in a workforce can also narrow the skill set that workforce has and fail to spark innovation and creativity. So diversifying a workforce can attract potential clients, suppliers, and employees and improve the ability of the workforce to dream up new opportunities and solutions. How are such considerations to be balanced against other considerations relevant to filling an empty post? This meet-up will be chance to explore these issues in depth.

We will be using Zoom for the meet up. Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation email. Please scroll to the bottom of the email to the ‘Additional Information’ section to see instructions for joining the webinar
